Mornin!

Deb- have fun at the beach! I wish Texas beaches were prettier.
SIOH- glad you are feeling better!

Meet the teacher was fun last night. Her teacher is very young, but she looks like fun. Her school is beautiful- it is opening for the first time this fall and it is state of the art. Really cool. I think overall DD feels better about school. The other little girl she met at the meet n greet picnic last week is in the class next to hers and their classrooms connect. So hopefully they will see each other quite a bit.

AND, can I just say that I LOVE my new camera. I finally got to test it out last night and I'm in love. It is super fast and shoots when I want it to, not when it feels like it. Which is what the old camera did.

coffee

We're back from the beach!

It was great - we are very spoiled to be invited every year. The house is *right* on the beach, you look out the living room window and there is the ocean:lovestruc We are all "glowing" a little. We figured out one of the bottles of sunscreen was old *ouch*. At least most of it was used on me ;)

We leave Sunday early morning for Canada so today we are running errands. Babysitter is coming for few hours so Dh and I can a least run the errands together (looks like this will be our only quality time together for awhile:laughing:)

Have a great day everyone!

Good luck Christy..
Those storms rolled thru out state a few days ago...than they petered right out around our county...we got next to nothin'.. :(

08-21-2009, 03:13 PM
Is it wrong of me to hope for storms? DH's friend is having a party tomorrow. OMG, yawn, it's so freakin' boring! On the good side, I'll just spend most of the time with Morgan at the neighbor's pool, so I guess that's not so bad. If it rains, we'll be stuck inside...So, never mind, maybe it better not rain!

Deb, have fun at the beach and be careful of riptides from Hurricane Bill.

SIOH, glad you are feeling better.

Ash, I am so glad DD is feeling better about her new school.

My to do list:

Up early
Treat poison ivy
Unload dishwasher
Hang up clothes on the line
work
Caffeinate
Go to the dr before Nurse Buffy hunts me down. We should just give her a script tab, she knew I needed a steriod pack, don't know why I needed to go to the dr for it.:confused3 Turns out it isn't poison ivy but either poison oak or sumac. So I am now on the steriod pack, get ready for the she beast to emerge and me all zoomed out.:scared1:
Meeting at the house with DD's new teacher. She is really is nice but firm which DD needs.
Dinner
Find O rings that I bought last week at Staples for SDV. Not sure where I put it.:confused3
Watched Top Chef and Top Chef Masters
Watch finale of Whale Wars.

Strorms were NASTY lighten hitting as thunder is crashing.
we've got 6" ruts in the driveway, I actually think 1/2 my stone is now in CT since the brook under the driveway goes to the white river and that flows in to the conn river.
Our library flooded again we got the call that it was abt. 6-12" below the glass on the door. I'm in it up to my underwear and the fireman in full uniform pulls in ( along with the highway crew) to help and hands me the hose:scared1: couldn't believe it, still can't. thank god the door has an awesome seal and only abt an inch got in. I've got to upload the pics so the town manager can see the mess then I'll post one Hopefully the kid got one besides my butt.

OMG! I'm so sorry Christy.. I guess it was all hands on deck to help with that.... So sorry to hear about the driveway too.... We had rain here but no storms.. we left the HS game early due to the rain.

morgansmom2000
08-22-2009, 07:39 AM
Wow, that sounds horrible. We had a little rain, but nothing like that!

ZeroToHero
08-22-2009, 07:51 AM
Wow - that does sound really bad. :( At least only an inch got in though, you can be thankful of that.

I had to cancel my trip to Provincetown today because of the giant swells that were being reported, which is probably a good thing... but it looks like a gorgeous day out now...... so now I'm torn, because it's supposed to get bad later.

Christy that is just awful! growing up we lived at the bottom of a big hill at the dead end so our basement would always flood!

Lisa- i hope you are reading this. maybe i'll send it pm as well.
I know EXACTLY what you need for that awful stuff. my mom had it so bad that she went to the dr one time and they gave her steroids and it did not work. i was talking about it at work and was given the BEST cure for that.

KOSHER SALT. yup. you take a bath in put the salt in the water. drys it up in a jiffy. you get it at the grocery store. mom did it and it dried it up like nothing. it worked awesome. since then i have passed this on to others and they always come back and tell me how good it worked. HOPEFULLY it will work for you as well.

joyah
08-22-2009, 08:33 AM
Oh it was BAD. Some of the worst I've seen in years. the thunder shook the house! Tom will spend the day trying to fix the driveway although we're scheduled to get more this pm. I'll be scrapping and he'll be dealing with the floods and driveway mess.

Holly thanks for the kosher salt tip Levi get sumac and i get ivy BAD at least once a year. We're at the top of the hill so we don't flood (could always slide off) thank god.

So sorry to hear about the flooding and storm problems, I remember a bad storm in CT when I was little that washed away a lot of my grandparents driveway and we had to get up at 3 in the morning to put enough back to be able to drive home to NYC for school and dad's work since it was a Sunday night that the storm came in.

Christy, I'll look for your driveway and stones in our brook and send them back.

I am so sorry to hear about the flooding, hopefully the damage isn't that bad in the library.

Po3, now ya tell me. ;) lol My SIL gave me domeboro that she got from CVS. Started it Thursday night and it is working at drying it up.

Thanks for looking Lisa, Husband went to play at the fair so drive is still a mess. oh well they said 2-5 inches this weekend so I'm sure there's more comming.

Thank god one of the libraians that can get downstairs got there and go the rugs up before they got wet. no books ruined but the shelves are taking it hard.

Lisa
08-22-2009, 08:48 PM
:confused3
she should have listen to you buffy! I did listen to you, :worship: I went to the dr. didn't I. It was DH's suggestion that I didn't listen to. :eek: Had he just suggested the salt I would have been okay, but the rest was :scared1:

Christy, good that the books are ruined. Shame about the shelving, is it wood or metal?

joyah
08-22-2009, 08:56 PM
Shelves are the nicer looking pressboard, they are going to have to be raised (guess who's gonna end up being voluntold (sorry Buffy this is my newest favorite word)to do it. this is getting insane it's flooded 5 times this year alone. normally 1-2.
Storms were so bad just 10 miles north of here 1 farmers round bales floated by, he wont say how many he lost. 1 of the fair grounds was UNDER water at the grandstand level that's 100 year flood.

And to add insult to injury guess what it's doing out now? Betcha it will take at least 10 guess:umbrella:
