and I'm already slackin'! Steve told me last night he's been checking my blog like every day to see if I've kept up with what I said I'd do....and I haven't. I'm such a loser. So, maybe I'll amend what I said to writing in my blog to 2 days a week, and maybe work up to 3 days! Yeah, that's it!
Had a couple of waves of storms pass thru the area yesterday. My mom got us a weather radio thingy for Christmas this year after the tornado that went thru Evansville and Newburgh last November scared the bejeezus out of her. So, I put it in a drawer and there I left it....until yesterday. She called wanting to know if we'd hooked it up. Um, no. I felt guilty as hell, so I dug it out and hooked it up. Called Kasara and she helped me get it programmed. I even put batteries in it! I was so proud of myself. That stupid thing went off all afternoon. Mara came home from school and the weather radio went off and the Celestine sirens went off at the same time...I thought she was going to pee her pants she flipped out so bad! Bless her heart, she's scared of a tornado, but it just gets old. It's all she has talked about since the one hit in November. So, I sent the girls to the basement. Honestly, it didn't look bad outside at all, so I stayed upstairs and watched the weather on tv. Heck, the storm broke up before it even got to us. We didn't have hardly anything happen and the whole time I'm upstairs, Mara's yelling "HURRY UP MOMMA! GET DOWN HERE!" It was kind of cute. I was, personally kind of bummed! I love to watch storms. Then later last night, the wind picked up...enough to knock down some electric lines because we lost power about 10:25 pm. I was upstairs watching CSI (yes, DVR so I can fast forward thru commercials!) and Steve was downstairs on the computer. How he made it thru the basement without breaking his neck is beyond me! The girls' toys were everywhere! So, we sat in candlelight and flashlight for awhile. Then Steve asks me why isn't the weather radio going off? I had him go check it...it was off! Evidently the batteries weren't any good that I had put in it! Grrrrr! I was so mad. Now I have to reprogram that stupid thing! Such is life. Oh, Mara said something cute last night at supper. She thinks Santa gave us that weather radio for Christmas so that she wouldn't be as scared anymore. That works for me!
This morning was so funny and so unexpected from Micah....I was the second one up, just got done with my shower and was getting dressed. Steve had already left for work and the girls were all still asleep. Micah runs into my bedroom, sees me standing in there, gives me a big hug around me legs and runs back to her room. After I'm completely done getting ready, I'm laying out their clothes and Micah is asleep in her bed! All snuggled and looking pretty darn cute. (yes, of course I took a picture of her!) So, all she did was get up and give me a hug and then went back to bed! She didn't even complain that it was me and not Steve that she was hugging! It's the little things....
Ok, I'm going to try out putting a picture in my post! This is a pic of the class I'm teaching Monday night at the D'bug...keep your fingers crossed this worked! Oh, have to rant a little bit about this (it is, after all, what my blog is called!). Got a call from one of the owners yesterday afternoon telling me that the paper I used is discontinued. The only way they can get it in on time is to overnight it, but that would cost more than the paper itself. Hey, totally cool, if I had just turned in that class project last week...but I didn't. They have had it in the store for over a month complete with a list of everything I need for the class. I was told shortly after I turned it in that they could still get that paper. Sooooo, what happened?!?! The one owner told me that she'd substitute it from something they had in the store already. Fine and dandy, but I need 4 different pattern papers (they very rarely carry more than 3 pattern papers in one line). But, I went by there today and they did it....I'm somewhat happy. It still ticks me off a bit, though.
Ok, I'm signing off for now....I've got a ton of stuff to do or Steve's going to kill me when he comes home from work! But, hey, I was only doing what he told me to do in the first place! Somehow, I don't think he'll buy that.....
