Hump Day

Today I have been busy around the house doing things that I have neglected over the last couple of months. I am going to have to get some file cabinets to get organized, so that I can be ready the next time I need to provide receipts, etc. I have so many boxes of papers, etc. in a closet upstairs that need to be organized, and as usual, I have put them out of sight and out of mind. This is not like me, but I have had other issues to deal with and have not had the time! Other than that, it is beginning to rain a little. The weather is supposed to turn bad tonight according to the news anchors, so we may be in for some more storms, tornadoes, etc. I certainly hope not! My mom and grandmother just got their power back from the weekend storms, and I hope that this one will not go down that far!
T went on a field trip yesterday, so this morning we were almost late for school. She was in no mood to get up and get going today! I did manage to get her to school on time after a round of fights about her getting up, etc. School is almost over for this year, so she is experiencing Spring fever, I guess. I hope that we can do some fun things this summer, and I hope the gas prices go down a bit, but that seems to be wishful thinking!! I paid 3.85 yesterday for regular unleaded!! What a rip off!! I have learned to do all of my running around on one day, so that I don't have to fill up as much. None of the candidates seem to address the problems in a way that will be beneficial to any of us..empty promises!! I think I will pass on voting this year, unless someone comes on board to get the job far, they have not in my opinion!! Until tomorrow! Have a good day!!

Windy Monday!

The weekend went well for Mother's day. On Friday, I attended a Mother's Day luncheon at T's school, and her class recited a poem. The food was good and we were entertained. It was very nice. T and I then went down to see mom and grandmother. We really enjoyed spending time with them, and even got to celebrate Aunt Linda's birthday with her. On Sunday, D and T took me out for dinner. So, the weekend was nice. I am a lucky mom to have such a sweet daughter.
Tornadoes struck Ga again, this time near my mom's home. Thank God, they were spared, however, some people were not so lucky! We made it home just in time, and now mom and grandmother are without power. Thank goodness, there is a generator for my grandmother's oxygen!! We have had wind gust of 40mph, so a few trees in our neighborhood have fallen. I guess after the drought, there has been some trees that have dead roots, etc. We have been lucky so far!
Today is going to be filled with chores and errands. Have a good day!!
