Southern Tornados

Thursday, April 28, 2011

My oldest daughter lives in Madison, AL - a city that is completely surrounded by Huntsville. She called me on her cell phone last night to have me pull up the Huntsville weather. Her power was out and she wanted to know how long the bad weather was going to last.

Many of the shingles on her roof were in her back yard. (Needless to say, there were leaks in the roof.) The hammock that was in her back yard was missing in action. The fairly new fence will need some repairs. BUT, my daughter, her husband and the grand-animals were all okay. And the rain tapered off not long after I spoke with her.

After watching the news this morning, I am very grateful that they made it through the bad weather. Yes, there will be a little aggravation getting my daughter's house back in order. But that's not so bad a price to pay considering how bad so many others had been affected by the weather.

    So glad to hear they are all safe. It was terrible to watch all the news today. So many people lost everything.

We had storms in the middle of the night, but I didn't hear any tornado sirens. Lower AL was really lucky this time.

Another Sleepless Night

Wednesday, April 27, 2011

I got about four broken hours of sleep, then decided I'm not going to get any more for awhile. I've been trying to do some quiet things to get my mind off of not sleeping. It's been about two and a half hours, and I'm still not ready to go back to sleep. I really dislike not having a set schedule for each day. It really seems to play havoc with my sleep. Maybe soon some kind of job that isn't too stressful will turn up and help.

    Not being able to sleep is the worst! I sure hope this doesn't last long.

    Can't you do a schedule following the needs and the reality of each (current) week?
hope you get some more sleep.

But they say it is better to get up instead of stewing and fretting, so here we are!
Hope the day goes okay!

Computers

Tuesday, April 26, 2011

I was trying to help my niece with her homework last night and fought with her computer all night. It took us about an hour and a half to be able to get the program running right to even start her homework. Needless to say, we're not done. So, I will be over there again tonight helping her out.

I'm babysitting my great-nieces and nephew right now. I'm on their computer and it's slower than molasses in January. They just don't like me right now. I can't wait to get home on my own computer. I will be really having fits if it acts up!

    Good for you. Usually the young ones teach the older ones how to use the computer nowadays. You are one smart gal.

Another Beginning

Monday, April 25, 2011

Okay, so Easter is over and done with. I find myself a little down now that it is done. I need to find something else to look forward to. I need to get myself back into some kind of routine. This has been eluding me for a few weeks now and it does get me aggravated at times. I will put my thinking cap on and come up with something, though. I always do.
