I do hope that everyone had a great Monday and ready to start a new day. It is currently 35 degrees with a windchill of 32 degrees. The winds are out of the East Northeast at 3 mph. I do think there is only some light rain falling outside here. Yesterday afternoon the National Weather Service had issued a Winter Weather Advisory for us starting at Midnight and going thru 9:00a.m. At around 9:30p.m. last night, I looked out my front door and there was a light rain falling then. I don't think we got the freezing rain that they were predicting. If it did, it was way after Midnight. I looked out my front room window a bit ago, but couldn't really tell if it was frozen or not. I'm sure not going to open up my front door at this hour. LOL. Yep, you guessed it, I'm a chicken. LOL. I'll just listen to the local weather this morning and then look outside when it gets daylight.

Well, yall all know the trouble I have been having with our Bank. I had signed up for their Internet Banking and I got all the information yesterday to be able to access it. I know the Banks and Post Office's were closed, but since I didn't check our mail on Saturday, me and the girls went by there yesterday and checked it. I also got our Bank Statement in the mail yesterday as well. Anyway, last night I was checking things out on the Online Banking and looking at our Bank Statement. I also had my Checkbook out and trying to see what had come thru and all that stuff. I noticed that there was a deposit that I had made back on December 14, 2007. It was a deposit for a little over $500.00. I couldn't find it anywhere on the Online Banking. I checked and double-checked and even triple-checked and it wasn't on there. I did find my deposit slip from where it was suppose to be deposited and today I'm going to the Bank to see why it's not on the Online Banking. I am so hoping that this is what has caused all of our problems. Last night when my DH called, I told him about this and he said that this is where the problem is also. If this is the problem, I am hoping that they will make it right with us. So, I ask for continued prayers that this problem will be resolved and they will admit to their wrong doings. "THANK YOU" all so very much for your prayers.
Yesterday, I did 2 loads of laundry. I washed up some dishes as well. Since it's just me and the girls here most of the time, I don't wash dishes every night. I usually let them accumulate some. I did have quite a bit to wash, but I got it all done. For our supper last night I fixed us some Homemade Chicken Strips and heated up a bag of Frozen French Fries. It was all eaten except for a few fries. It was good and the girls even liked the Homemade Chicken Strips. I even washed up the dishes from our supper last night. I don't know what I'll fix for our supper tonight yet. I will come up with something tho.
My Dad had to go see his regular Doctor yesterday. He got a good report. The Doctor told him that he had 1,000 Grams of E-Coli in his body. When he told me this, I was like what? Dad said that his Doctor told him that everybody has E-Coli in their bodies. I had no idea about this. I was totally shocked because I'm associating E-Coli with raw Chicken and stuff like that. Little do I know tho. Anyway, his Doctor told him to continue taking the Anti-Biotics for another couple of weeks and come back to see him again then. "THANK YOU" all again for the prayers said for my Dad. I so appreciate it very much. After they had left the Doctor's office, they went and bought a few groceries. He had called me yesterday afternoon and was telling me that one of the stores had potatoes on sale and wanted to know if I needed any. I said sure. Since I wasn't able to buy Milk and Bread on Saturday, I asked my Dad to buy us some Milk and Bread. Dad and my Mom had called me back a couple of more times asking if I needed any other things and I told them if they didn't mind, to get the girls some Caffeine Free Soda's. They came by yesterday afternoon while I was cooking supper and brought us alot of things. They bought us some Milk, Bread, Potatoes, Cookies for the girls, 3 - 1/2 gallons of Ice Cream, a big package of Bacon, Bologna, Hot Dogs, Hot Dog Buns, and some Banana's. "THANK YOU" Mom & Dad for the groceries. I have the best Parents. They are always helping us out some when they can. I had told them about our Banking issues and my sweet Dad even offered to give us some money but I wouldn't take it. I knew the Bank would be open today and since I didn't need any money last night, I can go to the Bank today and get some. That was our day here yesterday.
Yesterday morning around 7:00a.m. I hadn't heard from my DH yet. I called him and he told me he coudn't talk right now and that he was fighting with Snow. I said okay. He called me back around 8:45a.m. and told me that it had been Snowing so hard in Utah and he had to concentrate on the roads. He did say the roads were in pretty good shape, but it was still Snowing real hard. He said it had been Snowing hard on him even in Wyoming. "THANK GOD" they made it to Salt Lake City. He called me back last night around 9:40p.m. and told me that his Uncle had gone thru some heavy Snow while leaving Salt Lake City and going down I-25 to Nevada. I just talked to DH about 3:35a.m. and he was just about to enter into New Mexico. They will be home late tonight for a little while and leave out tomorrow sometime going to Memphis, TN, to pick up their load going to Minnesota. He will call me back later this morning before he goes to bed and let me know where they are at then.
Well, guess I'll go for now. I am on my second cup of coffee. I woke up around 3:30a.m. this morning on my own. I had may alarm to go off at 4:30a.m. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless Each and Everyone of You.
LOVE & HUGS,
