Good Mornin' Everyone,
"HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY" to each and everyone of you Mother's here in blogland. It is currently 58 degrees and the winds are out of the West, Northwest at 18mph with gusts up to 27mph. It is suppose to be a windy day today and we are under a Wind Advisory until 7:00p.m. this evening. We had another round of Tornadic Weather here late yesterday afternoon and early last night. I think it all started around here around 5:00p.m. They sounded the sirens off here in town and me and my DH went to our neighbors storm cellar. It was full, but there was enough room for us in there tho. The girls were in Lepanto spending the night with my Sister and they went to the Funeral Home and got into the Steel Vault they have there. We did get some pea size hail her for just about a minute and then some very heavy rains. As far as I know, there was not any damage here where I live at. I do know there was some damage here in Craighead County, but just not here. "PRAISE GOD" for seeing us thru another round of Severe Weather. Me and my DH were watching our local t.v. station out of Jonesboro, and when they told everyone in Caraway to get to their Tornado Safe Place, that is when me and my DH went to the storm cellar. One of our weather guys said on the 10:00p.m. news last night that since February 5, of this year, we have had some kind of watch or warnings every week. It has been a wild and bumpy ride so far weather wise this year. It is suppose to be up around 66 degrees here today and windy and then down to 48 degrees tonight. I may have to turn the heat back on. LOL. I know we do have another chance for some rain and storms later this week. I just hope and pray it doens't become severe like it has every week.
It has been a busy and stressful week here this past week. Both of the girls had softball games in Trumann on Tuesday evening. Our youngest daughter's team won their ball game 19 to 17. It started out that each team would get 5 runs and then it was like that over and over. They have a 5-run limit for the softball games. Well finally, we ended up winning the ball game. It did rain a bit on us at the ballgame, but nothing too bad. They didn't have to call the game or anything. I didn't melt either. LOL. After our youngest daughter played, our oldest daughter's team played and they lost 16 to 8. They didn't play as good because it had been "FUN DAY" at School that day and everyone was tired. They also got cheated a bit as well. We actually got to play games this past Friday night. LOL. It has rained every Friday night for the past few weeks, so it was good to get to play this Friday night. We played my hometown of Lepanto which is now called East Poinsett County. Our youngest daughter's team played first and it started out like it did in Trumann on Tuesday night. Each team would get 5 runs and have to start again. They ended up losing their game 20 to 18. They did play a good game tho. Our oldest daughter's team played next. Now this was a more exciting game. We started out behind, and then we came back and tied it up. It was tied 7 to 7. They had to go into overtime. We ended up winning the ballgame 8 to 7. I heard the coach say this was one of those heart-attack games. After the game was over with, me and my DH and the girls went out to the Quick Shop and they rented some movies to watch. It was nearly 10:00p.m. when our oldest daughter's game was over with. I sure am glad it wasn't a School night. I know on Tuesday night, it was after 9:00p.m. before our oldest daughter's game was over with and we had to drive home and they were both just worn out from the "FUN DAY" at School and playing ball, so I let them stay home on Wednesday and sleep late. Not a whole lot is going on right now anyway, so it didn't hurt them to miss a day. My DH made it home Tuesday evening around 11:50p.m. and me and him sat up till around 3:00a.m. watching t.v. and talking. I had to get up at 10:45a.m. so I could start some coffee and get my DH up so he could get ready to leave out at noon. The girls did go back to School on Thursday. Our oldest daughter's class went on their Field Trip to Memphis. On Friday, they had Junior High Orientation and a Luau with the 6th grade from Lake City. They will all be going into the 7th grade together next year. It was a meet and get to know each other and they had hamburgers and hotdogs and chips and dips to eat. Someone from the School had done the grilling for them. I had to send some Hamburger Buns and a bottle of Ketchup for the meal. My toothache is much better and I finished my antibiotics on Friday night. I'm not having to take Ibuprofen like I did last week. That has pretty much been my week last week.
This week is to be another busy week here again. Both of the girls have softball games here in town on Tuesday night. On Thursday night, our oldest daughter will be Graduating 6th grade and they will be having a 6th Grade Graduation Program out at the School. I am really excited about it and I will be taking my camera to take pictures. The only bad thing is that my DH won't be able to be here to see it. He wishes he could, but he can't take off and be here, so I will have plenty of pictures to show him when he gets home this coming weekend. I don't know if the girls will have any make-up games this week or not, but we will have to wait and see. Both of their Softball Season will be over with the last weekend in this month. I know they do start the Season way too early and it's either raining or too cold to be playing. They need to wait till School is out to start the Season and that way they will have something to do most of the Summer.
I had mentioned that last week had been stressful. Well, for right now, I just want to ask for a Prayer Request that I need. There was an incident that happened on Wednesday evening of this past week with our oldest daughter. The Church Bus had come by to pick them up and take them to Church. About 10 minutes after the bus picked the girls up, our oldest daughter came back home and said she didn't want to go to Church. I asked her what happened and she said this boy that has been bothering her every Wednesday night for a while now and even at School said something to her. She told me what he said and I just got so mad and so ticked off. I had previously talked to my SIL that goes to Church and teaches one of the Wednesday night classes about the boy saying things to her and she said she would talk to him. Well when my daughter comes home from Church, the Church she was Christened in and raised up in and not wanting to go, it's time to do something. I went up to the Church and had someone to tell the boy to come outside and if he didn't, I would have the Police to come and make him come outside. This boy is in the 6th grade, but should be in the 8th grade. He is already on Probation, but I don't know what for. All I know is that he is on Probation. He is one of those trouble making boys and both of the girls has told me the only reason he goes to Church is to see a girl up there. He came outside and I raised my voice at him telling him to apologize to my daughter and he wouldn't do it. I told him he needed to go inside that Church and get down on his hands and knees and pray to God. I was so mad yall, I just couldn't help it. I did tell him I was going to have him arrested. I never touched the boy or even cursed at him. I just raised my voice with tears almost in my eyes because I was so mad and upset. This boy has been saying some sexual things to our oldest daughter and he even grabbed her butt one day last week at School. Our daughter finally went to Church and I came home and called the Police. The officer on call told me he would go out and talk to him when Church was over with and talk to his Step Dad. He told me I would have to go to Lake City to file charges on him since he is a Juvenile. Thursday morning before School started, the boy went up to our daughter and told her he was still here, meaning he didn't go to jail. That ticked me off again. I called the Police that afternoon and as soon as our oldest daughter got home from the Field Trip, we went to Lake City and I got an affadavit to fill out. I also called the School on Friday morning to talk to the Principal about the situation. She wasn't there on Thursday, so that is why I had to wait till Friday and talk to her. She did suspend the boy for 5 days from School. I am taking the affadavit back to Lake City tomorrow and I am also going to get a lawyer to have a Restraining Order put against him. Not only am I afraid for our daughter, but I'm afraid now since he has been suspended from School, that he may try to come to the house and so something. Our daughter DOES NOT have to take this sexual harrassment at all and I will go to any lengths to protect both of our daughters. My DH is fully supportive about this as well. He knows what has happened and he told me I did the right thing. Our daughter is scared of going to Juvenile Jail or being suspended from School herself. I told her she hasn't done anything wrong and she isn't going to jail or getting suspended. I ask that you all keep us and this situation in your prayers. I will keep everyone up to date on what is going on with the situation as it comes to me. I have to take those papers to Lake City tomorrow before any processing can get done.
The girls will be home around 8:00a.m. this morning and we are going to Church. After Church, we are going to my Sister's house. She is cooking some Steaks, hamburgers and hotdogs, and other things for me and my Mom today. After I finish there, I will come to my MIL's for a while and visit with her. We celebrated Mother's Day last weekend when we went to Jonesboro with the 4 of us.
Well, guess I'll go for now. I'm about to finish my last cup of coffee. I need to eat me a bowl of cereal and start getting ready for Church after while. Our Church starts at 9:00a.m. and then they have Sunday School afterwards. There is always fellowship with coffee and breakfast foods between the Service and Sunday School. Take care my friends and have a great day. May God Bless Each and Everyone of You. I'll get around sometime today to visit with you. "HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY" again to everyone.
LOVE & HUGS,
