Scary Storm last Night!

YIKES! From a beautiful 84ºf day filled with blue skies and puffy clouds to whatever hit last night.We were sitting here on the computers enjoying the A/C and I heard the wind just whip up from nothing to what sounded like gail force winds.I told hubby he needed to take his headphones off and listen and just as he did the tornado sirens began to wail at the fire station that is about 2 miles away.I honestly have never heard them before outside of the weekly tests they do on Wednsday mornings during the spring.We just kind of looked at each other and began dashing around grabbing things we knew we needed.We decided last night that we are not ready for a real need to get to the basement and that perhaps during this time of year some things should already be stashed down there atleast until July when the season will be pretty much over.By the time we had everything we thought we needed together the sirens had stopped.It was a major wake up call though.Try imagining having 5 mintues to grab whatever you think you need for the rest of your life because the rest may be miles away once the wind stops.....

25 Years Ago Today....

I married my best friend in the world. I first met him when I was 8 yo and he helped me put on my ice skates that I was having trouble with. We laugh now that G*d kept throwing us together every few years growing up that we should've know something was planned. He also gave me my first kiss at 14yo when we were both hanging out at the same place. My friends wanted to go somewhere else and his Dad would not allow him to leave with 3 girls. I came back later and looked for him but he was gone. :( When I was 18 we met again and dated for about 2 years. I was madly in love and he wasn't ready to give up his freedom. So after listening to him proclaim how he was glad he was single I met someone else and left town. He says now that he really didn't mean it and that I broke his heart when I left.Four years later I returned home and after my Mom telling me I should gie him a call I did. We haven't been a part since. So happy 25th anniversary to the love of my life.

I'm beginning to look like a weather person? LOL Anyway 2 weeks ago it turned 70ºf and everyone thought winter was over.Very cruel trick was played on us when one morning we woke to new sNOw and another week of cold temps.I'm almost afraid to believe it is the end of this very long winter....

My niece graduated college a semester early.Not only is she beautiful she's pretty smart too.I'm not biaed at all am I?I think she is a little sad though as his is the end of her cheerleading unless she wanted to go pro.She is still working as one wth a company that throws cheerleading clinics across the country.She's 22 yo and being flown all over the country for 4 days at a time to teach Jr High High School and university cheerleaders new routines.Then there is my youngest niece who will soon turn 15 and was already invited to her first prom.Did I mention I come from a long line of females who were/are drop dead gorgeous.Yikes her Daddy has already got the shotgun ready. One cousin's daughter just cheered at the ProBowl 1/2 time show and another is competing for Miss Utah.

I'm thinking of doing the big family reunion this year in West Virginia.Back to the little town my Grandma is from,each year for the past probably 40 years has had the whole family back.My Mother has 59 first cousins so you can imagine how many of us there are.If you've ever saw the movie "Next of Kin" it reminds me of how my family is. I think we've entended into nearly every state and a few other countires but all of us are called back to that little town in WV that isn't even on maps anymore....Guardian.
