    Yep, shoe shopping is not fun when there is nothing you like......or they`re all too darn high!!!! Maybe in the 80`s........

    Bad weather for Lynne and Patty.......I spoke too soon......it`s cloudy now. And grey.

    Well, yesterday was a crazy day. I managed to sleep through thunderstorms yesterday afternoon. I never sleep through thunderstorms. My part of town is okay, but just a few miles away there is devastation from the tornado. There is about a 2 mile stretch of one of the main roads that is closed due to storm damage. The news reports that 20-25 houses have been destroyed or severely damaged. Several people have gone to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, but no reports of any casualties. There are some school closings today, but B’s county is not among them. There is no power at my office, so I am at home for now.

    Keisha - Congrats to your grand daughter. She looks adorable. Are those sneakers she is wearing?

    Houseof threes - 2 going to prom? Yikes. I am already dreading repeating this process again next year.

    Schumi - I absolutely hate shoe shopping. It doesn’t help that I have a wide foot.

    Lynne - Hope you get some nicer weather soon.

    No word yet from the boss. I don’t know what I will do with all my free time today.

    Charade you’ve covered the bases so I won’t repeat the homies

    Glad all are safe



    Anyone here with a potter wand ?....
    I need you to wave it so I can lose 17 lbs. overnight

    And while you are at it, include any homie that wants it done for them


    I refuse to eat another bite if food until the spell has been done
    (But have to finish the rest of the pizza first)

    Shout out to all homies that have not checked in
    Stay well and stay happy please

    We had pizza last night, though little one did not like it, so she had soup.

    We have 2 wands, so I"ll ask little one to wave both of them for ya Mac. Yeah, I'm hoping nicer weather will make me walk more, I could use more than 17 to loose. Overnight, yes please.

    Charade, that is very scary, and why we have laptops now. I was seriously thinking of telecommuting, but I usually sleep through storms, but was up early, so in an hour earlier than I usually do, and not much traffic. Which was good, as seeing through that heavy rain and darkness made distance seeing hard. We mostly don't get tornadoes, as with the 2 rivers around us, they don't seem to come, but we have had 1 and 2 ones, and also some sheer wind damage that has done almost as much as a 1 tornado. Very glad to hear no deaths and your home and all are safe. Older one came home from dropping little one off and saw glass all over our front yard. Yep, broken window in the attic. Sigh. I am thinking a big gust went through our vent and blew out the glass. I am hoping if we cannot replace the glass, we'll just do a Home Depot run, and replace. It's just one of those octagon kind. And of course, DH is not home. I'll have to climb up there and put some plastic over it until we can get a dry day to fix. Rain is moving away, so cold air is replacing it.

    Spring, 70 degree days, where are you? I need sun, like beautiful sunny days.


    And oh, Keisha, yeah, I'm in a large township, so while demographics change, I graduated with 997 kids. Older one had less 789, and I'm not sure what little one's is. My older siblings graduated with 1,200 and more kids. Our local elementary, which is 1 of 7 in the township, K -6 is 3,600 kids. I guess that is why I chose a small college, and both kids, large college. Which reminds me, maybe later this summer, we will do a road trip, as little one wants to visit Pitt. DH is driving back from your town, later today. I expect him around 10 or 11 tonight. At least the storm was heading East, so I hope his drive is clear.

    Yep, time for my lunchtime walk. The storm is now at the shore, and 12 was the warmest part of the day.

    Enjoy this Marvelous Monday. Hope all are drying out, staying safe, getting well, and having a nice beverage. Tea for me, though had some coffee, so speedy is me. LOL

    I think I totally underestimated how much a new kitchen will actually cost! So this might need a 3 year plan.....

    Good Afternoon Everyone-

    I have been down for the count with some type of stomach bug, thought I felt better this morning, but apparently I was wrong. Im so grateful I can work from home so I dont have to use an all important vacation day!

    I would love to have pizza right now (thanks Lynne and Schumi) but Im stuck with ginger ale and crackers!

    Glad everyone was safe from all the storms- lots of rain here (and a little thunder :crazy2:) but looks to be clearing now.

    I think different than the homies here

    I look forward to having a stomach bug at times as I do not over eat

    And usually drop a few pounds

    Since I’m healthy as a horse will need to use will power and count calories

    Charade ~ Glad you were all safe from the storms. Not a fan of tornado season.
    Yep, two of them. The oldest’s last year to go and the middlest’s first. We have a bit of a different set up here and they are allowed to go from 9th through 1 year alumni, so I get to do this a lot, lol.


    Ckmiles ~ Hope you feel better quickly!



    I only like shoe shopping if I dont actually need a pair of shoes.



    Add me to the list that is over this crazy weather. Our youngest plays baseball and this season has been crazy. His first game was called for lightning, 2nd for rain, 3rd for snow, 4th for rain and his 1st makeup game was cancelled yesterday because of rain. He has a game tonight and we aren’t sure what to think. I hate to see them call another but it is only 40 degrees out there right now, so betting it isn’t gonna be great by tonight. Poor kid has been so anxious to get out on the field. We bought him a new bat this season and he has yet to use it.

    Got another few returns done today. Had said i was done but no, someone always comes begging last minute lol.
    She’s my GD, fortunate she lives nearby. watched since a baby and now summers, finally; I got ‘my’ girl lol

    Tornados are terrifying indeed. Always dumbfounded me to see how they can flatten entire areas, then hop & skip over other houses for a bit & resume their mayhem.

    Oh i’ll Soldier on admit to being awfully startled, just hoping no big ole scab forms. Certainly making shaving interesting.

    Pretty sure that’s a cow but could swear it looks like a camel

    Haha you missed your calling as a diplomat. Weird they kept going back & forth on start time of tomorrow night’s game. Think it’s set @ 7 pm finally.

    Yes, ordered her hi-top converse ones that I bored everyone with here already. Had layers of tulle on the back.

    Her mom remade the veil with one of the jojo Silwa (sp) bows i am so over

    Is there a special button on the wand i’m Missing :)?

    Truly, there are colleges with less students. I’m sure they have a plethora of in-house elective classes though. Oakland area is not my fav part of town, a bit too congested and bustling for me even when i took classes when young. My DS lived in the area until recently & loved all but driving there. Is she looking at any other schools in the area while on the road trip? A real wealth of them in our state.

    Did he take turnpike? He probably had good weather, stopped raining here other than a drizzle this am. The type just enough to make your hair frizz.

    Yep, pretty sure taking the turnpike, Keisha. Business trip, so I would think fastest way. I am trying to get little one to look at Bucknell and a boutique one in Lancaster, as well as Pitt, but she is the most interested in Pitt. Yeah, with a very rusty memory, I was not fond of where Pitt was. Only did graduate classes there and stayed with a friend in Squirrel Hill. House was on same street as the then mayor.

    CK, hope you are feeling better.

    Charade, hope work got power back.

    Now what for dinner. Pasta is my go to. Just cleaned the oven, so not ready to bake in it, though older one bought you bake cookies, so I guess we have dessert too.

    Older one asked if I was making dinner, yeah I guess. Gotta go.

    Our power is back so I guess I have to go to work tomorrow. Some of the closed roads have been reopened.
    I was really bored with my unexpected day off today, so I decided to make myself useful. I went to Walmart and bought some cat food and supplies and dropped them off at the Humane Society. They are collecting donations for pet owners who have lost stuff in the tornado.

    Macraven - I want one of those wands too. I’ll have to wave it several times though.

    Schumi - Hope you got your pizza. We had it for supper tonight.

    Ckmiles - We have a small kitchen, but I know it will still be expensive to renovate. We have several renovations we want to do to the house. First on the list is have our deck repaired. Hopefully we will get that done before summer is over. Hope you are feeling better soon. I had my ginger ale and crackers meal last week.

    Houseofthrees - It is interesting to see how different schools do prom. At B’s school prom is for juniors and seniors. Freshmen and sophomores can attend if invited by a junior or senior. Students are allowed to invite people who don’t attend the school, but they can be no younger than freshman year and no older than 20. I think my high school had similar rules.

    Keisha - I love the high tops. I think one of B’s friends wore some with her prom dress. One of my friends wore sneakers with her wedding gown. I bought B some of those JoJo bows to wear with her clown costume when she was in Barnum.

    Lynne - Pasta sounds good. We eat way too much of it here.

    Almost time to get B from musical theater class.

    Lynne, I'm going to need a few waves of that wand too please pixiedust: especially after dinner tonight...Trey grilled burgers and I made fries ...food coma here :faint:

    CK...hope you and all our ailing homies are better soon.

    Janet...what a cutie your little gd is...she's growing up so fast. Hope your leg heals quickly...my cat bite which I was afraid would leave a bad scar has totally healed without leaving a mark.

    Charade, glad you made it through the storms ok...sounds scary. Glad your power is back on.

    I hear a glass of wine calling my name...after working 6 days in a row I get rewarded with the next 3 days off:cool1:

    Have a great night everyone :goodvibes

    So I got food poisoning, realized I made a horrible mistake and ordered the wrong dress (I was deciding between two....... and I picked the wrong one.), wind has been chewing away at our beach for three days, and I discovered black mold from water damage in a house. IT'S BEEN A WEEK!
    Whew!!!!
    Also, wind is over 30MPH sustained right now and people are calling to tell me their pools have debris in them. Ya think? (This is my food poisoned non customer service voice talking.) Of course my answer to them was to explain that the pool boy would be out to service first thing once the wind dies.

    Hope no one blew away or froze in this weather!

    You talking about your wedding dress or just a dress?

    Food poisoning is a quick way to lose weight...
    Seriously, hope you are better now
