Holiday Weekend


I thought perhaps I should let you know I am still here. I haven't blog for a few days as I have been busy at the doctor's offices and work. We started the long weekend with closing early, which just means more to do next week. The reports were good at the doctor's. The lab reports came today in the mail, but wasn't anything different then what I was expecting. I can pretty much tell when things are going backwards, but we have dealt with his illness for almost ten years.

I did get another tea towel done so I accomplished something while going back and forth.

We went down to see how the kids new garage was progressing. Our son-in- law was going to paint his new garage doors this weekend so they can install them on Tuesday. They are about ready to pour the concrete floor, and it is really going to be nice. Our daughter is looking forward to be able to park inside this winter so she doesn't have to clean off the snow. He is getting anxious to be able to work again. The doctor is really proud of the progress that he has made since they put his stint in.
We saw up close what a tornado can do. We were in Kirksville, Missouri where the tornado went through. The new houses were in shambles with some in a pile of rubble. To think you work hard to finally get your new home and have it destroy. The important thing is that you can replace a house, but you can't replace a human life. A new car dealership didn't have a window left in their building and damage to the cars. It makes you thankful that we didn't have it. We were looking at the flood damage also. A lot of rivers and small streams were out of their banks. We had flash flooding here in town. It was very unusual to see a car stranded in Star buck's parking lot because of the water. It is in an area which isn't suppose to flood, but with it coming so fast there was no time for it to run off. We watched it rain sideways and the wind was strong.
I don't know where our adventures will takes us the weekend with my having a three day weekend. I just know we will be on the road to somewhere. Have a safe Holiday.
