Wink We are family...

I'm 31... so that makes you say twenty years older than me mommy dearest.

Hopefully I will still be here in the morning... we have some wild tornados tearing through my area of the state. High winds, huge hail, tornado touchdowns, lots of rain, thunder, lightening... but not too much excitement in my backyard. This is the second time in the last thirty days. I live in some sort of storm alley as we get huge hail storms at least three or four times a season... not to mention the regular tornado warnings and thunder storms. Gotta love a good storm. So far I haven't had to "move to a place of safety" like my yucky basement with all the spiders.

Yikes! That sounds very frightening, Sojo. I must admit I'm fascinated by tornados. But I've never lived in "storm alley".
Take good care of yourself, girl!

Angry Tornados

Mommy... is that you?

We get all sorts of tornado touchdowns in Wisconsin... the closest I've ever been to one was when I was maybe 5 and one touched down a few blocks away. It basically leveled the entire block but luckily skipped right over my grandma's house... unbelievable! Tornados are funny that way. My husband's small hometown was totally flattened (yes, almsot the entire town) a few years back. The storms really don't scare me, its just part of life here. To be honest I find it kind of exciting. I would love to actually see a tornado. Well, this storm front seems to have moved on to Lake Michigan so all is calm.



I'm hungry and its after 8:00. Growl.

Yes darling daughter... it is I.
I'm looking up tornadoes on the Internet right now. We used to get almost one per year when we lived in a small town outside of Ottawa. It was interesting to see the little twisters "starting" in the fields. I've never seen a real one, though.
I'm just going to read about the 1999 touchdowns... very interesting...

Ellis,
YOu make me laugh, you make me cry. You are better than an R-Rated movie. You see I was the worst kind of smoker. The secret smoker! My hubby knew I smoked, but never around him, my kids did not know I smoked only a select few of other smokers or reformed smokers. Now you all know and it is not a secret. I WILL NOT SMOKE!

Virginia, if you put one damned cigarette in your mouth today, I'm going to do something drastic. I don't know how drastic it'll be as I'm umpteen hundreds of miles away from you, but believe me, IT'LL BE DRASTIC!!

JUST SAY NO!!!

And everyone else... stick to your damned commitments.
later darlings...

Oh my gosh, you guys are cracking me up! DH & I always joke about the crazy cat lady, every neighborhood has one! That is my goal in life, to have 42 cats with 1 litter box, and I want to chase away the kids that come into my yard! And heaven help them if a ball lands in my grass!

Sniff, sniff.. that better not be smoke I am smelling

Wanttolosealot-congrats for deciding to quit smoking! You can do it and we will all be cheering you on.

I have been sick for the last 2 day and did not go to work today so I managed to drink water and only one cup of decaf tea cut down to 1 tsp of sugar. And so it begins.....

Hey can I be the rich, eccentric, jet-setting Auntie who drops in on the family just to shake things up once in a while (like the aunt in the movie Auntie Mame?
