Good morning, DDA!

Debbie - I have been watching the coverage of Isaac.

Good Morning,

We're still here, and have power and water too. We are under a tornado warning right now and the curfews and been moved up until noon so we'll still be sheltered in for a while to come.

Glynis - I'm so sorry to hear about Lynn. We'll keep Marci (and all of you) in our prayers. Congratulations to Katie! I had a feeling she'd do wonderfully! What fun.

Jen - Sounds like an awesome trip. I'm glad you all had such fun.

Debbie - I'm glad the tree didn't cause too much damage. I hope that's the worst it gets for you all and those around you too. Our prayers continue. It's looking like Issac's aftermath is headed our way to hopefully that means we'll get a long way to getting out of our drought.

Deb - Can't wait to get a chance and read your trip report! I think I may have to do that in the car on Friday.

Nothing much new here. Were (mostly) all headed to Oklahoma this weekend for a family reunion with one side of my dad's family. We used to do it yearly until I was in high school and then it fell away until one a few years ago. I've got fingers crossed for a few people I'd like to see. However, all of the cousins from our group will be there plus the kiddos so it'll definitely be fun!

Good morning, DDA!

safe travels, Tia

Debbie - Hoping that Isaac has finally left your area and clean-up can begin.

Since I don't start my new job until 9/17 I decided to renovate Colby's room. I did his wallpaper and paneling 10 years ago before he was born and he's been after me for years to redo it. I always managed to get away with new bedding or a poster, but not this time. Today I stripped the wallpaper, tomorrow I need to wash everything down then the painting can begin. He is going with a surfer theme so I've been scouring the stores looking for anything that might work. We'll see how it all turns out in the end. I bought metal tiki torches today and I'm going to wire them to be floor lamps. What am I thinking?

It finally stopped raining for a while today!!! (not that it didn't start again)

Deb - a surfer room sounds like a lot of fun, it would be really cool if you had a real surfboard to cut in half to make shelves. You know we'll want to see pictures.

Deb - A surfer room sounds really cool! I like Debbie's idea about a surfboard for shelves. Whatever you decide to do will turn out wonderfully! You are one clever woman! I can't even begin to imagine how to wire a tiki torch to be a lamp! You constantly amaze me!!!

Debbie - Has Ike moved out of your area? I'm hoping so. With my kids all clamoring for the tv, I rarely get a chance to watch the news.

Bowling for me this morning! I'm excited! I had a great week last week. My average ended up being 133! That's my highest! I'm really hoping I can keep it up. Send your pixie dust! My inconsistent bowling really needs all the help it can get!

We are leaving for my dad's house tomorrow morning. We'll spend the Labor day holiday with him. He's got some things that need repairing/cleaning around his house, and I will NOT let him climb on the roof to clean out the gutters!!! So, we'll spend the weekend helping him out, and end up with a bbq at the cabin my brother and his wife just bought on Cedar mountain! Can't wait to see it!

Have a great weekend, everyone! Hope Ike is out of the way now, and everyone can enjoy the holiday weekend!

The wallpaper is all down. Now I need to wash the walls thoroughly to get all the remaining glue off. I think I'll paint the ceiling first, then the wainscotting then the top of the walls and finally the trim. Wonder if I can get it done by the end of next week I wired the tiki torches this afternoon and got the LED color changing bulbs. Pretty cool.

His toy shelves have been replaced with wicker trunks. I've bought 6 foot high reed fencing to put around 3/4 of his bunk bed to make a little hut. I'll make a surfboard or 2 to finish it off.

I wish that I could get paid to do this. It's a lot of work, but I love the planning and hunting for things.
