How's the vacation going along? Are you having a good time? Did DH leave ya yet? And are you missing home and your own bed? ha So many questions!! ha Have you visited any of our favorite places yet? Yes, I mean the TS's!! ha You know you can't leave without some souveniers!! Have you taught them all how and got them hooked on making totems? :) I just wanted to check in with you and see how things were going and if you are still having fun and catching up with everyone.
I just barely got to read your post from last week. I haven't been on here too much. Been trying to cram in some good times before school starts ya know. We went crawfishing on Sat. DH stabbed his hand with a fork trying to do potatoes and now that's all infected. He had to get a shot today and will have to get another one tomorrow and if those don't do the trick he'll have to have it cut open and drained. It looks ugly. :P I feel bad for him. But we cooked about 5 pots of crawfish and they are good!
I have my niece and nephew again part of this week so my DM and I are taking the 6 kids out to do stuff. I know, we are brave, aren't we?? ha We'll be either going to a little petting farm or the Aquarium tomorrow. Took them to a little indoor fun center today. My 3 year old only wanted to ride the merry-go-round about 15 times in a row and mommy had to go along for the ride! I was getting pretty nauseous! ha She just loved it. I know you are missing your grandbaby by now!
Anyway, back to your post.. Thunder and Lighting, I agree, always scary. Our electricity used to go out every time it rained. I think our power pole must have gotten hit by lightening more than 20 times at this one house. Ran the lines one time and almost caught our house on fire! ha My mom would make us unplug everything in the house and we'd have to sit quietly on the couch until the storm was over. Sometimes blue light would shoot out of the wall sockets or lightbulbs! And we weren't allowed to go to the bathroom because the lightening will sometimes follow water lines! ha One of our friends from Utah went to visit back in MS and there came up a big storm. Well being used to the storms out here she went out on the porch to enjoy it. Everyone kept yelling at her to get back in the house and she just couldn't understand why until lightening struck a tree not too far away from the porch. Stripped all the bark off of it all the way down. She stayed well inside from them on. ha Hope you enjoyed your display! ha
Isn't it so great how you can just pick up right where you left off with your family? It's the same way for us when we go back.
How did your niece like her gifts?
It's getting late here and I really need to head to bed, but didn't want you to think I had forgotten ya in just a few days. :) Keep squeezing in as much fun as you can too. Can't wait to hear from you and see what you've been up to! :) ~Anj
