Two things. First: Happy Birthday to my big bro!! You’re still older than me. 😀
Second: Don’t forget about the Summer Sampler contest at Selena Blake’s! Be sure to click here to enter to win. Contest ends June 15!
On Wednesday night, we had some really nasty thunderstorms roll through. And I mean really nasty. A tornado, they think, touched down in Flower Mound. Plus Lewisville and Grapevine got pummeled as well. Lots of power outages, downed trees, that sort of thing.
Luckily, my house and neighborhood sustained no damage. That was the first storm at 6:45 in the evening.
Then we got another major round. It thundered from the time I dozed off at 11 until the really bad rain started up again. At 1:15 am, the GFI tripped in the house and I couldn’t get it to reset. I gave up and crawled back to bed. At 2:30 am, thunder and lightening came and we got another round of high winds and a dumping of rain. The kid sailed into my room and dove into the bed. I carried him to the living room (he’s getting a little big for that) and listened to the weather radio. Severe Thunderstorm Warning. No kidding.
Since the local channels weren’t broadcasting weather, I figured it was probably okay and we headed back to bed. It poured down rain until after 4 am. That’s when I banished the kid back to his bed so I could sleep until the alarm went off.
I really hate nights like that. It really wears me out. And the kid hates thunderstorms so I know he’s going to be in bed with me, hogging the mattress and the covers.
As I left for work Thursday morning, I started pouring down rain again! We got our fair share, that’s for sure. It finally started clearing off by noon.
But boy was I tired last night. The kiddo fell asleep right after we got hom at 5:30 and he was impossible to wake up. He slept until I finally was able to get him up at 8:30 to feed him dinner. Of course, he got up just in time to go back to bed. Figures. At 9:30, I packed him off to his room with the portable DVD player and Star Wars III. Then I crawled into bed.
There are two things I can’t live without: coffee and sleep.
Paid bills. That was depressing.
Workd on WIP. That was fun.
Other than that, not much else to report. I’m SO glad it’s Friday. I think the kiddo and I are going to try to get to the movies this weekedn and see “Up”. I’m really looking forward to that!
