Good Mornin' Yall,
I hope that everyone has had a great weekend and ready to start a new day and week. It is currently 36 degrees with a windchill of 32 degrees. The winds are out of the Northwest at 5mph. Yeap, you read that right. We had a cold front to come thru after the storms and rain Thursday, and it's been quite chilly around here. We have had to turn the heat back on again. "PRAISE GOD" we didn't get anything severe around here, but some places got some hail and some more heavy rains. When I had posted on Thursday morning, we were under a Tornado Watch until 11:00a.m., but they extended it till 5:00p.m. that afternoon. It was really windy here on Thursday as well and by mid-afternoon, the winds were really blowing. It finally started raining here shortly after the girls got in from School on Thursday afternoon. And it rained and rained. It did slack up a few times and quit, but it started up again. Our electricity did go off for about a minute and came back on, but that was the only time it went out. They did place us under a Severe Thunderstorm Watch until 1:00a.m. Around 9:15p.m. Thursday night, we did get placed under a Severe Thunderstorm Warning. There was some hail in Lake City and other surrounding cities, but it never hailed here that I knew of. But it did rain tho. Both of the girls games were cancelled for Thursday. Friday and yesterday were partly cloudy and much cooler days around here. Today it is suppose to be partly cloudy and a chance for some showers and then tonight mix in with some SNOW. Yeap, you read that one right too. I'm not going to hold my breath tho, cause I just don't think it will be much except a flake or two if that. The high today is only suppose to be 49 degrees and down to 34 tonight. We are under a Freeze Watch for tomorrow night and into Tuesday morning.
My DH made it home Friday morning around 9:00a.m. and he was really tired. I was tired too as I hadn't had much sleep either. After he came home, me and him both went back to bed. Our youngest daughter did have a game up here on Friday evening. They lost to Manila 12 to 6. They did play a good ballgame tho. It was pretty chilly while she was playing ball. After the ballgame was over with, we all came home. I was in bed before 8:00p.m. I was still tired and cold from being out in the cold at the ballgame, so I put my P.J.'s on and went to bed. I think everyone else came to bed around 9:00p.m. We all slept late on Saturday. We got up around 8:30a.m. Now that is late for around here now. LOL. We all got up and got ready and went to Jonesboro for the day and shopped till we dropped. LOL. We had gotten our little Income Tax Check in on Friday, so since our oldest daughter's Birthday is this month, we took them to Jonesboro for a day of pampering and buying them things. We first stopped at a Pawn Shop and my DH bought him another Guitar. Oh, he loves his Guitars and likes to have a new or used one every now and then. After we left there, we went to the Mall and me and the girls had some new nails put on. I used to have them all the time, but this is the second time the girls has had some. After we finished there, we took them to a beauty shop in the Mall and they got their hair cut and had some highlights put in their hair. They loved that and it made them feel special. My DH told them they could have whatever they wanted done to their hair as long as it was decent. So, that is what they had done to their hair and both of their haircuts and highlights turned out really good. While they were getting their hair done, me and my DH went into Target to look around and we went to Starbucks and I bought a cup of regular coffee. My DH doesn't like the flavored coffee's, so I just bought a Starbucks Mug and had regular coffee put in and we shared it. We also went to Payless Shoe Store and I bought me a pair of Tennis Shoes. They were having a sale where you buy one pair and get another one 1/2 price. Actually you could buy anything in the store for 1/2 price. I bought the tennis shoes and some socks, and I bought the girls both a Guitar Hannah Montana Purse. They loved those purses. After they had finished with their hair, we took them to Payless Shoe Store and bought them some shoes. I ended up buying me another pair and getting another pair at half-price. Hey, you can't hardly pass up a good bargain like that. They had wanted to go into Claire's and they were having a sale on earrings where you buy 2 pair and get the 3rd pair free. So, my DH bought us all 2 pair of earrings and we got 1 pair free. I also went and bought me a new purse and billfold because I needed them both badly. I usually keep a purse till it wears out. LOL. After we finished at the Mall, we went to the Skating Rink and I paid for our oldest daughter's Birthday Party. She is having a Skating Party on the 26th of this month, and you have to pay for the party at least a week in advance. We will have to pay more on the day of the Party because I know she will have alot more than 8 friends there. When I finished there, we went to eat at the Mongolian Bar and Grill. It is a Chinese Restuaurant and we love eating there. After we finished eating, I had to go to Wal-Mart. We let the girls pick out a new bike for part of their Birthday present also. They both found one and my DH bought some bunji cords and took them out to the truck and put them on top of the truck. We have a rack on the top of our truck, so he stayed out there with them till I finished my shopping. I really didn't take the time to really shop the way I wanted to, but I did buy a few necessities for the house and I bought me a pair of pants on sale for $7.00. I also bought me a Deep-Fryer so I could use it cooking all of the things I had bought from Backwoods BBQ last week. We came home and when we got into town, we stopped out at the Quick Shop and my DH aired up the tires on the girls new bikes. After we got to the house, we uloaded the truck and the girls rode their new bikes for a while. Our oldest daughter's bike tore up, so I'm going to have to take it back and get another one. Me and my DH also bought us a new cell phone like the one we got the girls for Christmas. After I had gotten things put away, I had to charge our new cell phones so I could activate them. So now, all 4 of us has the same kind of phone. I went to bed around 1:30a.m. this morning and my DH came to bed around 2:00a.m. I couldn't go to sleep so I got up and ate a snack and layed back down. I finally went to sleep around 2:45a.m. and then my alarm went off at 3:45a.m. I didn't want to get up. LOL. I almost turned the alarm off and thought about going back to sleep, but I knew I couldn't. I got up and started a pot of coffee and got my DH us and he got ready. He left around 5:00a.m. this morning going to Salt Lake City. They have to go to Canada next week, but I forgot what part they have to go to. They will be home on Tuesday night to spend the night this week, weather permitting. Then they will be back home on Friday morning and won't have to leave out till around 11:00a.m. next Sunday morning. Our oldest daughter is suppose to have ball practice today at 1:00p.m., but I hope they cancel it because it's going to be too cold and then it may be raining again as well. They have a game here at home tomorrow night at 7:30p.m. That won't be too bad since it is here at home. After Monday, they both won't have a game until Friday. That's a good thing because tomorrow, they start their Benchmark Test's. That has been my weekend so far, what has yours been like?
Well, guess I will go for now. I'm about to finish my last cup of coffee and I think I may lay back down for a while since I haven't had much sleep. I will try and get around to visit with you sometime today. I do need my sleep. LOL. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.
LOVE & HUGS,
