The Daily Grind ~ 4/19/13

Mornin'...TGIF!

Prayers and pixie dust to all those in need.
Prayers especially to those in Boston who are in the midst of the situation..

I did email with Jennifer this morning as I heard the universities in the area are on lockdown (as well as the transit system).. she is home today. The university is closed. She hopes to check in later today but is also dealing with a headache.. feel better Jennifer.

We have received at least 3-5" of rain last night.. it poured from 6pm - wee hours of the morning.. our sump pump was going off ever 75 seconds last night... We have a little water around the joint of the basement floor and walls that I need to clean up but it didn't flood! Lots of areas are flooded though and schools closed or delayed.

We have the day off school today, built in snow day.. So DH and DS12 off to see Grandpa.

Let's see today:

take DS16 to get his haircut (Prom tomorrow)
clean up basement area ~ 85% cleaned up..we have one little area that is like a little stream and it's contained but I have towels over it to soak it up.. started the 2nd load of towels
load of towels x 2
do spring cleaning of area under basement stairwell
cut parade LO title
work on parade LO
out w/ friend for an hour or so
photograph/post to thread
type up sketch details for LOs x 3
work order #21
upload next batch of senior photos (think this is the last set which is the "trash the dress" theme)



I hope everyone has a good day.

Morning, I can't say good as it is a little stressful here this morning. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone who is in the midst of this.

Nan, thanks for posting about Jennifer. I was worrried about her.

Still waiting to hear from DH as he is working in the city today. Need to call my brother and make sure he and his family are safe.

Cassey ~ Prayers that all your family is safe... Please let us know when you find out!

I can only imagine how stressful it is for all of those in the Boston area... I couldn't imagine....

Morning!

My prayers go out to all in Boston. My brother and SIL are safe and at home. My nephew woke up just as my brother left and so my SIL heard what was happening and called my brother before he got on the bus to head to work (of course he would have been waiting awhile since transportation isn't going today).

Today:
children's service
dinner in Lake Suzy
work on things around the house, common areas need cleaning
send in paysheets

Rebecca

DH and one brother have checked in, they are at work, buildings are locked down, no one can get in or out. Still awaiting news of older brother and his family, they should be ok but until I hear from him I am going to worry.

Morning all! TGIF!!

Prayers & pixie dust to all those in & around Boston that things remain "safe" and resolve quickly. I can't even imagine.

I haven't been around much at all as I used the Disboard app on my smartphone incessantly, however, something caused my phone to just die. It was fine one minute, then just froze & hasn't turned back on since. I miss the phone for some things, but I do feel I have more time as I am not always on it & texting is a huge bother on the circa 1999 phone I am using, so I try not to do that either.

I will swing by & update April scrap challenge thread next, then I am hoping to get some of the outside vegatation cut back before it blooms & before the weather changes again. I figure I have about a 10 minute window.

DS finished English state test this week, next week brings Math. 9 weeks to go!!!!

Glad you have heard from 2 of the 3... Hope you hear something soon from your older brother.

The news is just so shocking...

DH and dS12 left to go to FIL's today... flood waters have closed the road that FIL lives on.. so DH is trying to figure out if they can get to the house or if he turns around and drives home...

So sorry to hear about your phone... We get laughed at all the time because we don't do internet on the phones x 5... DH and I are going to have to give in.. especially for the 4 phones (parents and 2 older kids)... I'm hoping if I give in DD will take more photos and send them! LOL Dang college kids!

Good luck to DS with his next round of tests..
I think we have another 2 weeks before our 2nd and final round of state testing occurs.

Good luck getting the vegetation cut back in your 10 minute window...

Just got off the phone with my older brother, he and his family are safe at home. That accounts for everyone, I can relax a little. I am praying for a safe and quick resolution to this.

So Today:

Julia would like to do a little more shopping
pay bills
sort picture order that arrived
dinner hot dogs

Hope everyone enjoys today!
