Time to find part of the old me...

Before babycenter, facebook, myspace, blogging and twitter, I used to love to read...you know books. As a matter of fact once I get into a book it is almost impossible for me to put it down until I'm finished. And I really like the books that leave me desperately wanting more. I'm really feeling the need to disconnect from the internet a little bit. It's become almost an obsession for me. I can't go to bed without checking facebook and I can't start my work day without reading all of ya'lls awesome blogs...but I just need to do it a little less. I already took one step I had added the internet to my phone so I could use mobile facebook and twitter, but the obsession was taking over me so I cancelled it.

Any way what I'm trying to say is that I have been talked into reading the Twilight Series. I am planning on starting it tonight. I know the addicition is probably over by now, but honestly I had said I was not going to read them. After people started offering me their books I caved. So we'll see if I can't make myself put it down!

Foto Faces Friday!!!

Hey everyone I know I have been absent for about 2 weeks. But between work, the fair, hubby's work schedule, a three year old who's been testing mommy's patience and so much more I'm just pooped. However I'm easy back into this blogging world. More Wine Please one of my favorite blogs to read is hosting Foto Faces Friday and I decided to join in this week. Here is a picture of the 3 year old mentioned above at his first field trip with his daycare at a local farm.

Happy Friday everyone! Here's to a great weekend!

The Micro-Burst

Yesterday about 2:30 a huge storm rolled into our town without any warning.at.all!!! The National Weather Service hadn't issued any warnings or watches NOTHING! Ya'll know I work at a radio station and we were all standing on the porch watching the clouds roll in, they were moving pretty darn quick the rain started and we decided the exciting sight was over and decided to head back in to get back to work. Not 2 minutes after we came inside did it start raining so hard and the wind was blowing so hard you couldn't see two inches in front of your self outside. Then the reports starting piling in about trees being toppled over...we're talking 60 year old trees here. Then a scary report over the scanner of two semi's blown over on the highway, one of them landing on a car, the driver of that car was so lucky...not one injury.
One Motel not that far from the station the roof was completley blown off and you could see directly into the rooms.

One of the hangar's at our local airport was completly demolished with 4 planes in it. One large plane at DC-3 was blown a 1/2 mile away from the airport.

I didn't get home until 7 last night...I was at the station trying to notify people of all the damage and we have hundreds probably thousands still without power...Rocky was at work trying to keep as much power on in the city as possible. We had some damage but considering we have 8 large old trees in our yard I think we were pretty lucky it wasn't any worse.

I guess the National Weather Service is in the area today surveying damage and determining if this was in fact for sure a microburst. We were very fortunate some people have lost their roofs on their homes are without power, lost million dollar airplanes and so on. Mother Nature she really knows how to put a wrench in things.

4th of July Weekend

This past weekend was a blast! Both Rocky and I had both had Friday off so we slept in to get prepared for the crazy weekend we had. After shopping and buying fireworks we headed to Grandma and Grandpa's to go watch the fireworks in their small town with them and then back to their house to do our own fireworks display.

Here's All of the great grandkids minus the two babies Aleah and Jenna
Dalton telling Great Grandpa a story
Me and my Mema...I love her sooooo much!!!!

Then Saturday morning we got up loaded up the car and headed to the lake with my cousin...his wife their 3 sons...My cousins sister in law and her husband and their 3 kids. I'm so mad at myself because I didn't hardly take any pictures but I did get this one of Dalton fishing.

He loved camping...he loved the tent he had to show everyone "his house" he even went to bed and we stayed up around the fire and didn't hear a peep out of him. He didn't have the patience for fishing too long but really enjoyed the experience as a whole. Sounds as if we're doing it again in a couple of weeks...we already have our "spot" picked out.

Hope ya'll had a good one!
