We had a brief but very violent storm rush through our area. I was driving in the company van and got caught in the rain, heavy hail, and gusts. I never knew that hail could sound so loud, make visibility almost non-existent, and be menacing. All of us drivers didn't budge until it passed. Here is a link of someone catching it on a vid. Fortunately we have our electricity, but others are still without as of this morning. There are downed trees, electrical wires, and branches. For the rest of the week, we should have nicer weather, so I will walk home today. Anyway, here's the link:

I live about 2.8 miles away from where I work and for the past several days, I would have either my son or husband drop me off in the morning, then after work, I walk home. I've been feeling invigorated and am sleeping more soundly. I am going to do this before the heat of the summer comes upon us. Even then I will bring a bottle of H2O.

Bruuuuther, we had one heck of a mess to clean up. My husband brought home yet another six-pack of Pepsi (which I don't drink) and was anxious to get a can of it cold. Without my knowing, he put one in the freezer last night and forgot about it. When I got up this morning, I opened the freezer door to see what I could thaw out for tonight's dinner, and-----SURPRISE!! The can exploded overnight and most of the door and items was covered with the slushy and sticky stuff. I sighed, and he looked at me with a sheepish grin LOL! I point-blank asked him if he wanted THAT in his system. It gave him a whole new perspective on that sugary junk and as I'm posting this blog, he brought the rest of the cans to work to give them away. Well, break-time is over---now to wipe down the rest of the freezer.

.......you will risk yours and someone else's life. When I was out and about today, waiting to make a left turn, the vehicle ahead of me proceeded to make the turn and almost got broad-sided. Nothing happened thankfully. I was just close enough to see that the on-coming driver who screeched on the breaks was talking on their cell phone, not paying attention. This was a startling reminder to not use my cell phone until I am safely parked.

I would like to share what I posted to one of the teams I am a member of (Dave Ramsey Fans).
I was wondering if anyone had purchased a house within the past year and received the $8,000 credit. Last April (of 2010), my husband and I just got under the wire and went to closing before the deadline. This past January we went to get our taxes done and this past Thursday we got the direct deposit---YAY!! I am happy to say that ALL our debts are PAID IN FULL, lock stock and barrel, praise the Lord! My husband just called nTelos (where we have our cell phone service) and got our monthly bill reduced by $57 a month by getting rid of the texting and internet service, which is a yearly savings of $684. I know we spent a small fortune to get rid of the credit card bills (including the interest rates that was high enough to gag a horse), but in the long run, it will pay off. Thank you for letting me share.
