Good Mornin' Yall,
I hope that everyone has had a great week and weekend so far. It is currently 48 degrees and it feels like 45 degrees. The winds are out of the North at 6mph. It was a nice day here yesterday and the temperatures only made it into the low 60's. It is suppose to be up near 70 degrees today. We had some bad storms and tornadoes around here on Friday. Not a pretty picture at all. Yall may have seen some of the footage about it on t.v. They had issued a tornado warning for my hometown of Lepanto which is only 11 miles from where I live on Friday afternoon. They sounded the tornado sirens and I think my Dad said there was only some minor damage done there. The worst of it went on East of Lepanto to a small town called Etowah, AR. It did quite a bit of damage there. In fact, I have an Aunt who lives in the area that was hit. She and her husband are okay as well as their home. No one was hurt in that tornado. "PRAISE GOD"!!!! It did hit another town called Earle, AR. I used to have some now ex-relatives that lived in Earle. They said it was the hardest hit town here in Northeast Arkansas. They said the tornado was an EF-3 tornado. Please keep all of these people in your prayers as some have lost everything they had and then as they try to pick up the pieces and rebuild their homes or whatever they may decide. They never sounded the tornado sirens here in my town, but the kids at the School had to go to the Tornado Safe room twice Friday. They last time they went, they kept them a little while after School was out. The girls were about 15 minutes late getting home from the bus. I am glad they did keep them because it is better to hold the kids than not too. We live in tornado alley here, and so far we have been so lucky. I just know one of these days tho, we are going to get one here.
I know I haven't posted any since last Sunday. I woke up Monday morning with a slight tooth ache. Our oldest daughter had a softball game in Keiser on Monday evening and after we got home, it got worse. I started taking some Ibuprofen pills that night and that eased the pain. I went and got some anitbiotics for it on Tuesday and started taking them. It is slowly getting better, but I am still having to take Ibuprofen every so often. I'm hoping it will get better soon because I sure don't like pain. I was in the bed most of last week with it. It was also hard to eat anything I liked as well. I ate only soft stuff. I'm not sure when our Dental insurance will kick in, but when it does, I'm going to see about having my teeth worked on. I just hate needles. LOL. On Thursday of last week I had to go pick our oldest daughter up from School around 2:45p.m. because the School had called and said she had fever. I brought her home and gave her one Ibuprofen tablet. She went to bed for a while and slept some. She was supposed to have played in a softball game on Thursday night, but I didn't let her. Our youngest daughter had a softball game in the same town as our oldest daughter's team and my parents and sister took her to the game. Our youngest daughter's team lost their softball game 15 to 5. Our oldest daughter was able to go to School on Friday and she heard that their team had lost their softball game as well. They were both suppose to have a game here in town on Friday night, but as usual, it had rained and rained them both out. Seems like every Friday their games get rained out. We have some games this week as well.
My DH finally made it home Friday afternoon around 1:30p.m. They had to put their regular truck in the Volvo Shop last weekend and the company gave them another truck to use. Well the truck they gave them doesn't run as fast as their regular truck and that put them behind a few hours getting home. This past Friday was my DH's turn to go to Memphis and he had to go and pick up their regular truck because it was ready. He had to switch everything back into their regular truck and pick up their Salt Lake City load and by the time he got done, it was 7:45p.m. Friday evening when he got home. I had fried some Cheeseburgers, Tater Tots, and Shrimp for our supper on Friday evening. Me and the girls went ahead and ate and my DH ate when he got home. Since our oldest daughter had gotten some money for her birthday last weekend, my DH told them we would take them shopping this past Saturday. So, Saturday afternoon we went to Jonesboro and went to Ryan's and ate first. We then went to the Mall and I had to have my nails filled in and our oldest daughter got her a Pedicure and paid for it with her birthday money. Me and our youngest daughter had went into The Children's Place in the mall and my DH and our oldest daughter went to Hollister's. Our youngest daughter bought her an outfit and a pink cowgirl hat with a tiarra on it and a purse at The Children's Place with the money we gave her on our oldest daughter's birthday. Our oldest daughter bought her a pair of lounge shorts to wear around the house here from Hollister's. We then went to Kay's Jewler's in the Mall and my DH and our girls bought me a gold bracelet that has hearts on it and has MOM inside each heart. It is really pretty. My DH also bought me a Journey necklace. This was all early Mother's Day gifts from them. Our oldest daughter wanted to stop by Aeropostle's and look. We went in there and she bought her a pair of jeans that was on sale and a couple of shirts. After we left the Mall, I had to go to Wal-Mart and get a few things for the house. I also had to take my new cell phone back because it tore up on me last Monday. My DH got the money back and turned around and got another one with the money. Our youngest daughter had seen a Silver Charm Bracelet that she wanted to get me for Mother's Day, so she got her Dad to give her some money to buy it. They gave it to me last night after we got home. My DH also bought me a new watch. It is pink and it is pretty as well. So, I think I did good for this Mother's Day by getting 2 new bracelets, a necklace, and a watch. When we finished shopping at Wal-Mart, I stopped by Kentucky Fried Chicken and bought me some Chicken gizzards and livers. Now don't laugh, LOL, but I love those things. On the way home, I stopped in Lake City to buy some gas because it's cheaper there than it is here in our town. They have opened up a new gas station and it has a Subway in it. I bought me and our youngest daughter a footlong sandwich and I brought mine home to eat sometime today. Our youngest daughter only ate half of hers and she said she would eat the other half today. My DH and our oldest daughter didn't want anything. When we got home, we had to unload the truck and I had to put things away. We went to bed around 10:45p.m. last night. I had to get up at 3:45a.m. this morning so I could get my DH up so he could leave out around 5:00a.m. I had woke up around 1:30a.m. and couldn't go back to sleep. I finally got back up around 2:30a.m. and started some coffee. I am on my last cup now.
Well, guess I'll go for now. My tooth is starting to hurt a little bit and I'm going to take me a couple of Ibuprofen pills and lay back down for a while. I'll do my best to get around to visit sometime today. Take care my friends and have a great day. May God Bless each and everyone of you.
LOVE & HUGS,
P.S. I am still not able to add any pictures from Glitter Graphics to my post's. Is anyone else having the same problem? Am I doing something wrong maybe? If you have any clue, please feel free to let me know in the comment section. Any information will be greatly appreciated.
