My Great Uncle Louie passed away on Friday. He went in for a hip surgery and ended up having a heart attack. He was 77. He was my Grandma's baby brother. My Mom, Grandma, Aunt and her husband are off to New York at 4 a.m. for the funeral. I'm glad though that all of my kids got to meet him at our last family reunion in 2007 to see what a great guy he was.
Last night we had a tornado warning. I woke the kids up around 11:30 because the sirens were going off and the news was saying to take cover immediately. I wasn't taking any chances. Luckily nothing happened. We just had some water in the basement. I sucked most of it up with the Shop Vac and the rest with a sponge mop. My Shop Vac is now dead. It had a good run though, I've had it for at least 10 years. And I've used it A LOT.
Some blankets got wet on the floor so I've been doing laundry all day.
Tomorrow I am going to the support hearing and since I'll be in South Bend, I'm meeting up with my friend Carrie. I haven't seen her in almost 3 years. Crazy.
Her son, Andre, has been getting in tons of trouble. He's 16. He had a body attachment on and was on house arrest. He somehow cut off the attachment and has been missing for 4 days.
I've been friends with her since 3rd grade and I hate to say this but her mothering skills were lacking in the past. I'm not sure how things are now but a lot of the way Andre acts is because of her lack of attention.
I feel bad for her though. I know she loves her kids and is worried sick about Andre.
Christol, sounds like Dylan's hockey coach is promising.
I hope it works out.
Sonic's food is nasty but the slushies are YUMMY!
I feel sorry for Claire's friend. I just don't get some parents at all.
I'm glad nothing happened with Columbo.
Well, I have to go put some clothes in the dryer. After washing all the stuff that got wet, I realized that Rhiannon had nothing to wear tomorrow. Sheesh.
