THANKFUL THURSDAY & THURSDAY THIS & THAT'S
Good Thursday Mornin' Yall,
I do hope that everyone has had a great past few days and ready to start a new day. First off, I would like to "THANK" each and everyone of you that has left a comment being concerned about me. I am okay. What had happened was that our Cable & Internet Bill was due and since DH had started a new job, I didn't have the money to pay it. I had called the Cable Company and asked to pay it this Friday. The lady I talked to said it would be okay to pay it this Friday. Later on in the day, I was going to get on the Computer and I noticed I didn't have any service. I called the Cable Company back and talked to the same lady and she said they had disconnected us. I said okay and "THANK YOU". So, since I had no Internet Service, the last couple of mornings I have been playing a game that I have on my Computer. It is Majong Tiles. I didn't sleep good Wednesday night at all. It was after 2:00a.m. before I could go to sleep and then I got up around 4:45a.m. After I had taken the girls to school, I came back home to take my meds and eat me a bowl of Cereal. I then went back to bed for a while. I woke up around noon and came into the Front Room to play my game. Well, lo and behold, I noticed I had Internet Service again. So, I tried to get on and Walla, I was on. "PRAISE GOD"!!!! I have no idea as to how and why I had Internet Service again, but I took advantage of it and I did my best to visist everyone to let them know I was back on. So, that is why I wasn't able to post or comment the last couple of days. It has been hard on us the last few months and hopefully since DH has started this new job, things will get better and we can get caught up on things. Again, "THANK YOU" for all of the comments and emails that I had received and for being concerned about me. I really do appreciate it very much and appreciate each and everyone of you.
Now, let's get back to my Weather Report. LOL. It is currently 37 degrees with no windchill. It made it up to 50 degrees yesterday and was a beautiful day. There is a slight chance that we may have some Showers again today. It is suppose to get up to 58 degrees today and then by the weekend there is the possibility of it being very cold again. And, according to "The Weather Channel", they are calling for some Snow Showers on Sunday. Say what? Yeap, that's what was on there last night. But I'm not going to go out and buy up all the Bread and Milk. LOL. It can always change as it probably will. I know we couldn't get so lucky as to see some Snow around here. Anyway, we will see what this Arkansas Weather will bring us.
Today is "THANKFUL THURSDAY". It is now Hosted by Lynn@SpirituallyUnequalMarriage. If you would like to join in the "THANKFUL THURSDAY", please go visit Lynn and sign the Mr. Linky. Be sure to leave Lynn a comment as well. Today I have alot to be "THANKFUL" for. As you all know, this past week has been a bad week in the Weather Department. On Monday, Tornadoes hit the Southwest part of Missouri and did alot of damage to the Springfield and Branson area. There were several Tornadoes up in Missouri also. All of this was moving our way Monday Night into Tuesday. Well, somehow or another, the front slowed down some and it didn't get here till Tuesday around Noon. "THANK GOD" it didn't get bad here where we live at. We only got a little rain. There were reports of Tornadoes all around us tho. There was some damage in our neighboring Counties. In the Northwest part of Arkansas, there was a Tornado between Conway and Russellville that killed one person. In Jonesboro, they had some damage in the older part of town as well. Up the road a piece in Osceola, they had some damage there also. So, you see it was all around us here. I am "THANKFUL" that we saw nothing Severe here where we live at. "PRAISE GOD" for watching over us and for protecting us. My heart does go out to all the ones that lost everything and loved ones. I hope you will join with me in remembering all those in prayer. I never even heard it Thunder or see it Lightening around here on Tuesday. I did watch the clouds go around us tho and they looked pretty bad. I am also "THANKFUL" that I have Internet Service this morning. I was beginning to have withdrawals. LOL. What do you have to be "THANKFUL" for on this "THANKFUL THURSDAY"? You can let me know in the comment box if you want to.
Now, I would like to "THANK" Angela@TheLifeAndTimesOfGran and Hope@SecondTimeARound for giving me the "Great Blog Award - 2007 Inspiring Blog". "THANK YOU" both Angela and Hope for giving me this wonderful Award. I am so honored that you both chose me and I so do appreciate it very much.

I really appreciate each and everyone of you taking the time to visit me and leaving a comment. So, please, if you read my blog, take the Award and pass it on as well. I feel so Blessed and "THANKFUL" for each and everyone of you.
Late last night I was visiting Pea@Pea'sCorner. She was informing us all that this was "Nations Delurking Week". It is January 7 13. I have never heard of this before. Pea did some research on this and here is what Pea had to say about it.
I looked up what “delurking” means. Apparently, “lurking” is the practice of reading blogs and comment threads without commenting yourself, or making it known that you’re a reader. So “delurking” is making your presence known through comments, etc. Come out, come out, wherever you are! Let me know that you're here reading this:-)
Pea has several Banners on her Blog about "National Lurking Week". If you have time, please go visit Pea and leave a comment and pick a Banner that you would like to display. The above 2 are the one's I chose. "THANK YOU" dear Pea for the Banner's and for doing some research on this. I do hope that if you have time, you will let everyone know about this "National Delurking Week" on your Blog as well.
My DH made it out of Canada on Tuesday Night. He wasn't able to get a signal up in Canada except only in certain area's. I didn't get to talk to him as much as I normally do, but when he did have a signal, he would call me. It drives me crazy not being able to talk to him several times during the day or evening. They got back into Memphis, TN, yesterday morning. They got to come home for a while. He got home around 2:30p.m. and went to bed. They had a load to take to Hodgkins, IL that delivers this morning. They left around 9:00p.m. last night. He wasn't here long, but "PRAISE GOD" he was here for a while and me and the girls got to visit with him for a bit. They should be back home later on tonight to restart their hours. They will have to leave out sometime on Sunday going on their new Dedicated Run. He told me yesterday afternoon that he hasn't been sleeping as good during the day. It's going to take him a while to adjust to driving at nights and sleeping during the day again. He said he got so tired yesterday morning around 4:00a.m. that he had to pull over and let his Uncle take over. They were in Franklin, KY when they switched out. I've always told him that when he gets that sleepy, to pull over and also if to call me and talk to me to keep him awake. I told him it doesn't matter what time of the night it is. I will talk to him. I can always go back to sleep after the girls are gone to school.
Well, guess I'll go for now. I am about to finish up my first cup of coffee and I think I will go and see who has any coffee ready for me to refill my cup with. Take care my friends and have a great Thursday. May God Bless Each and Everyone of You.
LOVE & HUGS,
