Jeanette, so nice to see you on here, I hope you are feeling better soon! The flu seems especially harsh this year. I'm glad that so far we have evaded it at our house.

Brenda, see you got a little snow! Glad the party was a success. I'm going to have to plan something special this year for Brian's 60th birthday.

Brian was in a car accident last Friday and although he walked away, he has been very bruised and battered. He hit an icy patch on his way to work, went on the meridian and hit a tree. The entire front end of his SUV was gone and there is $18000 damage so they have written off and now we wait to see how much insurance will give us for the vehicle. Brian went back to the Dr yesterday and they gave him some prescription muscle relaxants that seem to be working better than the over the counter stuff. Nothing like a phone call from the police to start your morning...

Enjoying some plus zero temperatures for a few days before it gets cold again. Have a good weekend ladies!

Happy January!

Just lounging, watching HGTV so thought I would take a minute to check in. Have been battling Influenza since last Thursday. Did a round of Tamiflu and was starting to feel better then lungs and cough changed and worsened. Now have a bacterial infection so doing antibiotics and an nebulizer. This influenza is nothing to mess around with, don't remember last time I was this ill.

Brenda...good to hear Jims party was a success, thought of you last week when heard Ohio weather was going to be so icky. knew you had friends coming in from there. Happy walking!

hello Dianne, Kare, Cori
hope you all are doing great!

Hello and Happy Thursday to you all ...

I wish I could share my weather with you guys ..we had a cold snap but now are in the 60’s!! I’m having Jim’s SURPRISE 50th Birthday Party Saturday..there are about 15 people coming from Ohio but Mother Nature isn’t playing nice so fingers crossed they can all get here !!! He leaves Monday for Nashville for 2 weeks and then maybe onto Indiana for another week ..I wish I could go but I just can’t leave my Mom to have to babysit all day everyday and I work in the apartment office a couple days a week too so he’ll be going solo !!

Dianne ...I sure hope you’ll stop this way as you travel to Florida ..you’re welcome to stay too we have a nice guest room!!!

Kare ...good luck with the job !!! How’s Dwayne doing ? Is Meghan seeing anyone new yet ?


Jeanette ...hope you’re doing well ...look forward to seeing you here ..we all love you 😘

I’m off to Sam’s Club today to get the last of the party stuff and getting my nails done ...Jim knows there’s a party for him with our local friends but not
the Ohio group so it’s been nice not having to really hide the party prep 😂

Hello to anyone else checking in ...

Hugs to all
Brenda

Dianne,we are having the same kind of weather here. Extremely cold because of the wind and some snow expected. It sounds like a blizzard outside but it's just the wind..
Have fun in Arizona.

Not much going on here. I've applied for a jog as a families first home visitor which involves supporting low income/high risk woman with pregnancy and the first 3 years after birth. I have heard the job will be going internally but that there will be some juggling and another full time position will come open in a few weeks, so I wanted to make sure I had my resume in. As much as I love my job at the school, I am not happy with the political side of it and constantly working with unhappy people. Time for a change...

I hope you have all escaped all the colds and flus that we are dealing with here.

Hello girls! Under a winter storm warning...3-6 inches of snow and ice...started raining earlier today but switched to snow quickly so hopefully the roads aren't too icy. winds blowing at 45 - not going to be nice the next 2 days and then below zero for the weekend - hopefully Friday will see us heading to AZ! Got rooms through our points so we'll be staying at a nice resort in Scottsdale - will spend a day at the Barret Jackson auction again and the rest of the days visiting with friends, planning on being home around the 23rd... Have to watch the weather and roads before we decide on a path. Have grandkids the first week in February then will head to Florida for the Daytona 500 around the 12th. Have landlords down that way too that want us to stop and say hi so who knows how long we'll be gone! I just hope its nice weather!

Jeanette - you are always on my mind, I hope your days are getting better...vent here when ever you need to! We all need to do that sometimes, just get it off our chest. And you are the least toxic person I have ever met!!!! Love you my friend and know we're always here for you and just a text away!

Another couple of weeks with my invisalign...back teeth aren't meeting and I find I chew with my front teeth. They kept apologizing for it taking long but i'm like hey that's ok it'll be good in the end!

Take care everyone! love and hugs to you all -

Dianne

Jeanette, never worry about bringing us down with your thoughts, I think we have all been there at some point and we always support each other unconditionally. I've been trying to make peace with some changes in my life that weren't my choice but impact my life. This has meant letting some things/people go and putting others into perspective. New Years seems to be a good time to reflect and look forward to new adventures.

So bitterly cold here - -42C this morning and it's been that way for days. A good night to stay at home and read in front of the fire. Brian is working until 10pm and Dwayne will be in bed by 7pm so no celebrating going on here.

I wish all of you a Happy New Year and may the year bring you health and happiness.

Kare

Couldn't let another day, week, month pass without checking in.
It was never my intention to stay away for so long, one day turned into to two and two into seven and then a month and here it is, the last day of December 2017.

I have thought of each of you so often, just haven't had much to share or contribute.
Feeling I am at the edge of something and not sure what it is, a crossroads of sort and not sure to go left or right with no road going straight forward. spend much of my time calming my heart and my head from racing, over analyzed thoughts. I am working on exactly what it is I want and probably equally important what I don't want. I am just wired so differently. I have a very blessed life, however it is very different than what I "planned" but you know what they say......if you want to hear GOD laugh, tell him your plans. so I am trying really hard to accept what it is exactly that GOD has planned for me and I am trying to see that path.
Deep crap for the last day of the year, but this is how my mind works. I am so envious of those who can breeze thru without a care in the day. Al says I just care to much! Perhaps he is right!
See why I have stayed away,, just feel toxic!

My goal here is not to complain or burden your minds.
It is simply to wish you the very best and happiest 2018 that life will allow.
I love you girls, each of you, uniquely different beautiful women.
Your friendship means the world to me, and I count you among my richest blessings.

HAPPY NEW YEAR

Hello girls -

Kare - I bet it was good to have Meghan home for awhile, how is Dwayne liking his google? Kids were telling us about theirs - might look into one of those.

Cori - oh the beach looks good! After this christmas of trying to find time to get everyone here I almost want to just take off! We had my 3 here for Christmas day, none of Don's until maybe Friday night but maybe not until Jan 5 - ...I told him I can almost see why some parents go south for the winter! No hassles of trying to get together!

Brenda - looked like you guys were enjoying the beach too! Envious of your warm weather as we are in the deep freeze this week...below zero almost every day, so glad we are not calving in this stuff.

We had a good Christmas day - my kids were here and we had a blast. Good dinner and played games then opened gifts. Hannah and Matt came Friday so they were here for 4 days. Nice to have them home but was nice to send them home also! Told the girls when they get older they will appreciate the quiet! But hoping some of them will come home next weekend. We do have Jacie and Brinley this weekend also...thinking of taking them to Star Wars.

So 3 more weeks with my invisalign, right now I am only changing the bottom one...then Jan 9 they will put a wire behind my bottom teeth and I will wear a retainer on the top at night - will see how that goes for a few weeks. My cousin said the wire on the bottom didn't work for her and she ended up with retainers on top and bottom - doesn't really matter to me....I am so happy with the results!

Everyone have a great week!

Dianne

Merry Christmas everyone!
Cori, your warm Christmas looks very appealing today! It is -39C with the wind chill today. Spending the day inside, until I have to take Meaghan home later today.

Dwayne was up at 2 am waiting for Santa, so he's having a little nap. He got a google home mini for Christmas so he's pretty happy. I think he and Dad are going to set it up while I take Meaghan home.


I hope you all have a wonderful day with family and friends!

Kare

Merry Christmas my friends! Wishing all of you and your families a wonderful holiday with family and friends. Mike and I spent a couple hours at the beach yesterday and I got a sunburn for Christmas lol. I'll take that and my white sand Christmas any day over a cold, snow white Christmas. Skyped with Amelia while she opened her gifts from us and plan on just relaxing the rest of the day. While I remember fondly Christmases
past and time with family; I don't miss the stress of it all. Hope each of you celebrate and enjoy the season that brings you the most happiness! This is ours!

Sorry for being MIA, it's been so busy lately.

It's been warmer than usual for this time of year but that means freezing rain and icy roads. Supposed to get colder towards the weekend and stay that way.

I still have a few gifts to wrap but pretty much ready for the holidays. For the first time in several years, Meaghan is coming home to stay for a few days. I don't know if I mentioned that she and her boyfriend of several years split up. He didn't want to get married and she was ok with that but the deal breaker was he doesn't want children and she does. She also started a new job today as a Doctor's assistant.

I hope you are all doing well and ready for the big day! I think of all of you often, even if I don't get on here and write.

good morning! I don't know why I struggle with this site so much! Takes me for ever to find our chat board, or it won't let me log in or the posts are all old! Think I will take this laptop in and have it gone through, pretty sure there is a virus somewhere in here!

Weather here as been awesome! But sounds like this weekend the cold will set in, talking below zero - guess we can't complain too much its been a pretty good winter so far. Today we are PG'ing the cows...suppose to be in the 40's! Last year we froze!

Hope everyone is having an awesome month and have a wonderful Christmas if I don't get on again!

Hello everyone! The engagement went great! We were all surprised as we didn't know when Ian would propose so we're all standing out front to have a group picture taken and as he walks up to get in line he gets down on one knee and the look on Adrians face because she didn't know what he was doing but when he took the box out she yells "shut up!".... and then "oh my god!".....then it finally hit me and I'm thinking "where's my camera!" Ian's parents didn't have a clue what was going on so the look on their faces was priceless! So glad Ian had some one videoing the whole thing. They've set a date for September 14, 2019 so lots of time to plan! Not sure if that's a good idea or not!

I think winter is here to stay. Little bit of snow on the ground but it's cold. Maybe hit the 30's this weekend which is still nice, worked calves last week and will sell the steers next week...hoping to head down to Phoenix again the beginning of January for the Barret Jackson auction...Hubby has mentioned it but we'll see what happens...might not have all the calves sold by then and he hates to go until all that is finished.

Brenda - that sounds like a perfect part time job! Close to home - can it get any better? Love seeing the grand babies growing!

Almost dinner time so I'd better go fine something ...have a great weekend everyone!

Dianne

Happy Thanksgiving Ladies, I hope you have a wonderful holiday with the people you hold dear.

Feels and looks like mid winter here - going to be a long time until spring.At least the next few days will be a bit warmer.

Everyone here is doing well. Brian got promoted to manager at the gas station. It doesn't mean a huge increase in wage but I 'm hopeful the owner will realize how hard Brian is working and give him a raise.

My workdays goo so fast I have so much to do. We don't have as many funded students which means less EAs but we still have so many kids that need help.

I hope you all enjoy your holiday.

Hello & Happy Monday to you all...

Can you believe it’s time for Thanksgiving...this year has flown!!!

We’re having my DIL’s family and a couple of friends Jim went to high school with ...they live in Rock Hill and have no family here :)

There are a lot of fun Christmas events coming up Rock Hill has a huge festival ....the following weekend there is a parade in a town about 20 mins away ...the following weekend we’re going to Pigeon Forge for their Christmas shows ... then it’s Christmas 🎄We’ll probably go over to Myrtle around the New Year since Austin & Sam will be there for their time share :)

I hope you’re all doing great ....I’ll be starting a diet round on Thanksgiving..time to drop 20 lbs that snuck up over the busy summer :)

Hugs to all...

Dianne, how exciting for your daughter! I hope it all works out! Here it is now winter, we have had so much snow and tonight we are under a bowing snow advisory. Guess winter is here to stay.

Brenda, I'm jealous of you enjoying the warm temperatures. Hope you are having a great time.

Jeanette, how are you doing?

Daisy chick - how are things going for you?

Tired tonight - it was a weird day at school - lots of fights and goofy behavior. Seems to be a theme because Dwayne's respite worker works at the high school and said the same thing.
Going to have a quiet weekend.

Brian has been given the manager's position at the gas station as the current manager has become a guardian to 2 young children and is moving to their home in Winnipeg to raise them with his girlfriend. I'm hoping Brian will enjoy his new position.

I hope you all have a nice weekend!

Good morning! I have been missing for way too long...hope everyone the has been checking in is doing good! Still doing corn here, with the weather it's slow going, we need to bring the combine and tractor home every night and put them in the shop...thankfully we have a shop they can go in! Deer opening this weekend so won't get much done as the guys want to hunt. And it's cold today and windy - not much snow thankfully!

Kare - hope your knees are feeling better! Mine can feel the switch in the temps also, thank you arthritis!

Brenda - love seeing your pics as you travel! So much fun and you and Jim are blessed to be able to travel like you do, I was telling (and showing) Don where you guys are on the map and hoping to get to see you when we head to Florida!

We are thinking of going to the Barret Jackson auction again in Scottsdale in January - might hit the Denver stock show on the way, thinking Don will be ready to get away right after christmas with harvest taking so long - looking forward to Daytona 500 in February - we actually have a few land lords down the way (Tennessee and Georgia) so we may stop and see them -

Dec 2 most of the family will be attending a hockey game in Grand Forks...Ian (Adrian's boyfriend) is planning too propose at the game! She has no idea how many family members will be there...hope we can keep the secret that long!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Dianne

Brenda, you travel to such interesting places! I think Brian would love to go to Pigeon Forge - maybe some day.

Well the snow is officially here and it has been a cold week. It's been a few years since the snow has come and stayed this early but what can you do. I've had a lot of fun with a couple of my students as they just came to Canada in September from the Phillipines and are experiencing their first snow. The one boy is fascinated with the snow

My knees have really been sore this last couple of weeks and my left one gets quite weak. I'm not sure how long I have to deal with this before they will replace it but I hate it! I think I will have to go back for a cortisone shot soon and maybe that will help.

Just got home from a meeting and having a snack and going to bed. I hope you are all doing well.

Kare

Hi girls! Quick checkin - corn harvest is busy! We're about half way through which I was glad to hear this morning! But tomorrow they are saying snow with possible 60 mph gusts - no we will not be out there! This week the wind has been terrible - hard to tarp trucks! But other than that things are going good.

Yes Brenda Alexs birthday was last week - we went out fore a quick supper ...late but enjoyed our time with him - will do a better one once harvest is done

Got lunches packed so off I go to the field - on the plus side I always lose weight in the tractor!!

Have a great day girls!

Hi Everyone, hope you are all doing well.

Brenda, yes we had snow Saturday morning but it was gone by noon. Happens a lot because we live so close to a huge lake. Tonight we are under extreme wind warnings as they are forecasting winds as high as 90 km/hr (about 55mph). Supposed to last most of tomorrow, which could make for an interesting day.

Not much else going on, busy at work for the entire day. Knees are driving me crazy but I keep trucking, not much else I can do. A warm bath and my heated mattress pad help before bed.

I'll try to check in on the weekend. Just heading for my bath and heading to bed to catch some extra sleep.

Hello & Happy Tuesday to you all :)

We had a great trip to Ohio (despite witnessing the horrible car accident) We had SO much fun with our friends Friday night & the wedding was beautiful on a Saturday...it was great seeing my sister Monika from Switzerland..it was hard leaving knowing she was there until Saturday...Jim & I are going to start planning a trip to see her in the next few years !!

Sam & Austin found out they're having a baby boy ..they are thrilled!!!! Naming him Thomas James after my brother & Jim ....Jim was SO honored !!

We are going to Myrtle tomorrow for the day to see our cousin who's in visiting from Ohio ...this weekend we have a chili cook off here at the apartment and then we might go to the amusement park we've been trying to get to all summer lol

Cori ....any luck yet with the job ? So strange that 2nd shift is harder to find ...usually its day shift that's hard to get ...hope something pops up soon !!!

Kare ...how was the Thanksgiving feast ?

Jeanette ...how's the harvest going ?? Any trips coming up ?

Dianne ....seems your harvest is keeping you busy !!! How's married life for the newlyweds?

Hello to anyone else that might pop in

Happy Saturday girls. Partly sunny, partly cloudy day here, with a steady breeze. Hurricane Nate will miss us, but I feel for those still in its path.

Mike is working again. I think he has had two days off in the last month since Irma; making up for lost production. Great for replacing extra expenses during Irma, but not so great for Mike and Cori time. This is why I am looking for a 2nd shift job. Have found many day shift jobs, but no 2nd shift ones so far. I will keep on the job hunt.

Brenda, looks like you had a great birthday! No one deserves it more than you girlfriend. Safe travels to and from Ohio.

Kare, thats one of the problems I am having with my job search. Making the change without having to lose pay/benefits in the process. Positive thoughts for good results for Brian. Seems like the poor guy has had more than his fair share of health issues.

Dianne, hope the weather holds up for you guys to finish up harvest. How close are you to being done? Saw on facebook that your daughter and son-in-law purchased their first home. That is so wonderful! Congrats to them!

Jeanette, miss seeing you on here sweetie. Hope all is well and you are just enjoying life. Hugs!

Well, I need to tackle some housework. Have a wonderful rest of the weekend girls!

Struggling here because I got a new iPhone but I think I finally figured it out, speech to text on my phone so this is going to be way easier posting stuff, I might just babble on forever! Sitting home as something went wrong with my tractor with the DEF fluid, they can't quite figure out what's wrong so I'm just getting more yardwork done until I get the call to come back out, have had a few other breakdowns this week so I'm hoping things look better, can't complain about the weather though it's been pretty nice out. Better get back outside to get some more stuff done, everybody have a great weekend.

Cooler fall day here, calling thunder storms later, so I was outside emptying my fountains and hoses so I can get them away this week. Had our first frost on Friday, so it won't be nice for much longer.

Brenda, looks you are having fun with the family!

Cori, hope the job search is going well. I would like to find ajob that is year round but when I factor in the difference in wages etc, there is no economic advantage to moving.

Dianne, how's it going?

So, renal Dr thinks there might have been damage to Brian's kidney when they did the angiogram back in April when he was in the hospital. If that is the case, it is not fixable and could get worse. Right now he is waiting for a whole whack of blood work, urine work ups etc to come back to rule out different things,, so we wait. Brian goes back in December to get the results.

Dwayne watching Dora and friends in Spanish in the office while I make apple sauce. Weirdest kid for watching movies in different languages and will sit for hours and watch it. Not going to complain, he has talked non stop for 2 days so the break is nice.

Jeanette, and Daisy chick, I hope you are doing well.

Need to get my veggies cut up for fajitas - talk to you later!

Cori,so glad hurricane Maria missed you, too bad it had to hit so hard where it did land. Mother Nature is a very powerful force...

Rainy weekend and cool today but looking so pretty with the trees changing. I think fall is my favorite season! Just relaxing and waiting for Dwayne to fall asleep so I can go for a bath. Lunches made for morning although I only work until noon as Brian has his renal appointment tomorrow. Meaghan is going to take her brother for coffee so I can be in the office without Dwayne talking to me non stop. We have to be home by 7 as I have a meeting. I am stepping out of my comfort zone and co chairing an advisory committee for the company that runs Dwayne's day program. Don't have a clue what I'm doing, so it should be interesting.

Guess I should go let the dogs it, it's 8:30 and pitch black out and we have a skunk problem in our city. Hope you are doing well and having a good week!

Hi girls. Just a quick check in. Life is almost back to normal here, although we were holding our breath when we first saw Hurricane Maria headed on the same path as Irma. Fortunately that has changed for us, but we are heartbroken for Puerto Rico and other islands that a receiving a double whammy in less than 2 weeks. Some of my co-workers just got electricity restored in the last 2 days here. I can't even imagine what those people there are going through.

Mike is working all this weekend because of lost production time during Irma. I will be spending my time looking for another job. We have decided that I will look for a 2nd shift job so Mike and I will be on the same schedule. We are tired of working opposite shifts and only spending time together on the weekends when he doesn't have to work.

Still in the low 90s here and very humid. We are hoping to go to the beach Sunday morning before Mike goes to work. Always nice to slip in some beach time! Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

Happy Thursday! A cooler, sometimes rainy day here. Sure feels like fall now. Leaves are changing, the geese are flying over in the morning and then at night. Love the cooler nights though.

Daisy Chick, great job on the weight loss, I hope you are feeling better soon.

Dianne, my sunflowers finally bloomed! I'm hoping some of the reddish coloured ones bloom before we get frost.
Brenda, nice that you can still ride. Not sure what kind of winter we are in for this year.

Working on the Thanksgiving lunch for school, trying to get donations firmed up this week, Slowly coming together and I now it will all fall into place just like every other year.

Not much going on, Brian see the renal specialist next week. Dwayne still having some behavioral issues but we are adjusting his meds. Hasn't helped that his worker got injured by another supported individual and got a concussion and will be off another 2-3 weeks because of post concussion problems.

Off to wash some cucumbers that a co worker gave Brian, I promised to make ice cream pail pickles for Dwayne this weekend.

Daisy chick - hope that infection clears up soon! No fun....and great job on the 30 pounds!

Rainy day here, pork roast in the oven...guys are working on the combine so things are ready to go when it dries up. Weird weather - 80's until friday then dropping to 60 on saturday...

Brenda - so jealous your still riding! We thought about it but the days when it was warm the wind was blowing! Not sure we'll get another ride in....

Having fun with my Cricut machine! Making little ornaments for christmas gifts and signs for outdoors....might keep them might give them away, that's my problem - I like everything and want to keep it!

Have a great day girls!

Hello, my friends. Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers. We made it home yesterday about 3am. No damage to our home at all and for that we are very blessed. We spent most of the day taking down plywood, cleaning up outside and trying to get the inside back in order as well. We are exhausted but we both went back to work today. May take a few days to get rested.

We have power, which many people here do not have. It has been near 90 and humid. Miserable conditions for those working to restore power and those doing storm cleanup.Flooding is also a big issue here; not from storm surge so much as from the rain from Irma, overflowing a lot of the rivers here. Several rivers won't crest until Saturday. There are reports of evacuees that are still trying to return to the state and cannot due to flooding, traffic or gas shortage.

We are so thankful that we and our friends were all safe and their homes undamaged. And again we are so thankful to Jim and Brenda for taking us in with open arms. They are very special people!

I'm going to close and try to go to bed a little early tonight and get some rest. Thank you again for all the thoughts and prayers. Love to you all!

So we survived the bus trip... Don even said he would do it again ... but no longer than 2 days... it really was long enough when you are use to stopping every hour and hitting our favorite coffee shops, but it was fun - we started out by introducing ourselves and then answering a question ...then the next part was kinda weird - speed dating - I really thing they need a different phrases for this but you basically move one seat back and have 2 minutes to talk to that person then you move to the next seat - good way to visit with everyone but the older crowd did not like the thought of "dating" ... there were some that refused to participate and I understood that. Game was great - vikings won which was a plus! A few of the guys did not ride the bus back to the hotel as they wanted to party longer - personally I don't think that should be allowed but....they all made it back but were not in the best shape in the morning! Toured the Cenex Harvest loading facility at Savage MN, interesting but short tour...buffet lunch on our way back with one stop to stretch legs. Was glad to get home. Today the smoke from the Montana fires is awful....got some mowing done but it's hot, smoky and just yucky out.

Hope everyone had a great weekend and a great week!

Cori...so glad to hear you are with Brenda! I'm sure it was a hard but wise decision, praying it doesn't do too much damage to your home.

Kare - we have had that smoke also - some days good some bad! Really bothers Don's sinuses, enjoy the weekend!

Brenda - you guys are awesome to open your home to people who need a safe place and wonderful that Cori is there!

Hannah and Matt will get back tomorrow night - they have been loving Japan! They are Pokemon lovers and the is big over there! I am anxious for them to get home though - too far away for this mama! Adrian and Ian were in Montana last week, will get back home tomorrow - lots of smoke there and West Glacier was mostly closed because of the fires but they are enjoying their vacation also. It is so hard not to ask Adrian what kind of wedding she wants until Ian proposes! We have talked about it and she wants a small wedding here at the house and then a bigger reception later...I told her that's fine with us but the list has to stay under 100! Fargo (100 miles east of us) has some beautiful venues...maybe I can talk her into one of those.

We are having a gorgeous weekend here...starting to clean out the garden and Don finished the steps on the back deck, we'll board the bus at 9 am tomorrow morning for the football game - hope it's fun or Don will never do it again !

I bought myself a circut last month - so far I am loving it! Got lots of ideas for gifts and holiday decorations. When I told Adrian I had bought one she said "I know what I want for wedding invitations!" So I'd better practice up!

Have a peaceful day everyone!

Dianne

So glad you are somewhere safe Cori, I pray that this will be over soon so you can return home.

I;ve been watching coverage of Irma on CNN and wow what a lot of water!

Very hot today, close to 100F which is not normal for this time of year but we will enjoy it before the -40 temps come.

Stay safe and have a relaxing Sunday

Kare

Hello my friends. We are safe and sound at Jim & Brenda's home. They have graciously offered for us to stay with them since we bugged out last night. After hearing the latest updates at 5pm last night, we made the last minute decision to leave. We just didn't feel safe to stay home anymore. We decided to just drive until Irma was no longer a threat. We was going to stay in Orlando but we felt we were still in harm's way. We ended up continuing to drive until we got to Rock Hill and there were no more warnings. We will head back as soon as it is safe. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. I'll keep you updated.

Hello & Happy Saturday to you all.....

This hurricane has been keeping us on our toes ...for a while it looked like we were going to be affected pretty hard but not so much now ....so sad for Florida ...Continuing to pray for all in the path :(

Jim's brother ended up having a blockage in his heart so they put in a stent and he's doing very well! Thank you all for your thoughts & prayers!!

Adam got his DNA report back and he IS Jim's biological son...thank God
I don't think Jim could have handled any more surprises!!!

Kare ...I'm so glad you enjoyed Phantom :) I can't believe it's time to plan the Thanksgiving dinner seems
like you just did ..lol How's Meghan?

Dianne ....how neat that Adrian got to perform the ceremony & that's AWESOME on the upcoming engagement!!! I agree the pics were beautiful and you'd never know there were any mix ups!!

Jeanette...I think SC would be a great place to go for your anniversary ;) I'm glad you had such a good trip to Vegas!!

Daisy ...hello to you ...hope you're doing well!

Cori ...oh my friend I'm worried about you ....I really wish you could have come here to ride out the storm...stay safe & please let us know asap that you're safe !!!! Love you !!!!

Jim worked on bills & finances this morning ...yuk...lol I think we've decided to not go to Mexico in Nov ...with all the trips we've had to take to Ohio and one more coming in October & our annual Gatlinburg Cabin trip the end of October we just financially don't see it working without racking up a credit card and we're trying to continue to pay them off soooooo hopefully our friends understand and this doesn't cause a rift ...we've been friends since 3rd grade so that would be awful:(

The kids and grandkids are all doing good ...Andrea is working ALOT so I have the kids ALOT injoy it but it's tiring sometimes ....hopefully if she & Jim get back together and he moves here that'll ease everything up and she can work less!

Well everyone have a great rest of the weekend!!

Hugs,
Brenda

Cori, please stay safe and let us know you are doing ok when you can. I can't even imagine what a hurricane would be like. They sound very scary...

First week of school done and I'm tired. Going to be a busy year. Got my schedule for doing speech therapy started and hopefully class schedules will be firmed up on Monday and I can get organized. Always so much to do. Already starting to plan the Thanksgiving lunch at school as its on October 5th.

Smoke has disapated a bit here, but if we get any winds from the north it will be back. We seem to be enjoying perhaps our last hot weekend. It was absolutely beautiful today and not a cloud in the sky, just a little windy.

I hope you are all doing well. Heading to bed shortly...

Kare

Hi girls. Have been busy and in hurricane prep mode for the last week or so. Bought plywood on Tuesday, our bonus day off; we had planned to lay on the beach at Siesta Key but unhappily decided we better get everything we needed. Got off work today at noon and spent 2 hours boarding up all the windows and doors. Until this morning was looking like Irma was veering east and we were going to get less of the hurricanes effects. This morning the path shifted to the west and is still veering westward. That means we, on the west coast, will likely take a direct hit from Irma. They are predicting it to hit us Sunday at probably a Category 3 hurricane; 75-90 mph sustained winds and 100+ gusts. We live 10 minutes from the Gulf and are now expecting some storm surge, although they are not certain on how high the surge will be right now. We will have better info tomorrow, but right now it doesnt look good. We are hunkering down tomorrow night and pray that our house will still be intact on Monday afternoon. This is part of the price for living in paradise.

Dianne, the wedding pics were beautiful. You wouldnt know by the pics that there were any hiccups, so I think you managed to do quite well. Congratulations to the bride and groom! And another wedding! Will you have any time to recover before the next one?

Brenda, looks like NC will be spared from Irmas wrath. Glad you arent in here path as much anymore!

Kare, hope this school year goes well for you!

Jeanette, good to hear you had a nice getaway! You work so hard and are so deserving of some down time. Is harvest starting soon or has it already started?

Well girls, I will post when I can. Hopefully wont be without power too long. Preparing for the worst, but hoping for the best. We would appreciate everyones thoughts and prayers please.

Love to you all. emoticon
