Daily Grind 8/27/2012

Good Morning!

Well- I woke up to the winds dieing down so took the opportunity between lines of storms to take the dogs out. Things here are not too bad but the river could reach flood stage if we get too much rain today. It sounds like about 10,000 Floridians are without power so overall not too much impact- that is a very small amount considering the number of homes in the areas with the strongest bands of rain and storms so far. We are still under a tornado watch for a few hours and I fully expect it to be extended until late today. DH headed off to work as the stores are open while the schools and government are closed.

Good luck to anyone in the panhandle, Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana who will be dealing with this in another day and at a higher impact.

Today:
put away the 5 loads of laundry I did yesterday- anything that could be washed was washed
keep taking the dogs out between bands
dinner- ham, potatoes, and green beans
get pot roast ready for tomorrow
get fruit tray and vegie tray ready for tomorrow
work on scrapping (since I am home and expected to be at work)

Rebecca

Hope it keeps fairly easy for you, Rebecca. Enjoy your unexpected day home.

I'm not working today either. We've got a few things to do, need to get Morgan's backpack ready and go to the grocery store for makings for lunches.

Hope everyone has a good day and stays safe!

Good Morning!

Rebecca, I am right with you! The wind sure did pick up in the evening and howled through the night with alot more rain. Things have quieted down quite a bit, thankfully! Right now the sun is shining, it's raining (go figure!) with a mild wind - the weather is confused! Suppose to have rain on and off for most of the day as these outer bands of Isaac push through. We were lucky, we did not lose our power at all yesterday.

Today:
a couple loads of laundry
once over the house
vacuum
put away hurricane flashlights, lanterns, etc.
meal planning
Publix run

Have a safe and productive day!

Becky

Good Morning!

Prayes and pixie dust to all in need, and to those in Isaac's path.

Rebecca and Becky, glad things are okay with you down there. Hope it stays that way throughout the day.

We are off to the beach today. Need to make sandwiches and pack the cooler.

Hope everyone has a great day!

We haven't gotten any of Isaac yet, but the wind has picked up and we should be getting some rain/storms this afternoon. It shouldn't be bad here if it stays on it's present course.

I'm off work this week. I needed to go grocery shopping today so I went bright and early this morning so that I was sure to be back and the car unloaded before the rain. My plan for this week is to clean and organize this house. Yesterday I worked on the kitchen. Today, I'll work on the kitchen nook and the dining room. We have way too much stuff, it'll be great to clean it out and get more organized. My crafting room needs it the worst, but I'm leaving that room until last and I probably won't get it done before I go back to work on Saturday, but I can then work on it a bit here and there later.

Have a great day everyone!

good morning ladies!

good news about the storms- need to check in with those in its new path today.

Today is a must do over type of day, hasn't started out great and it wont end great either I am sure.
DS was up too early- I needed some extra time this morning, then he was clingy. Then I left him on my bed so I could shower. He made a mess! Looked like the poor baby exploded! he was sitting on my night stand not wearing his diaper and there was POOP everywhere, bed, nightstand, floor.
got him hosed off
room cleaned up
got a call that DD cant switch elem schools because the one I want her to go to is crowded.
need to go by the one here and see if I can make sure she gets a decent teacher. poor kid.
was going to try and finish up the dlr/dca swap but I am thinking I will just stay away till the bad day juju is over
dinner-not sure
DD#2 has cheer
DD#1 has play practice
