No electricity, no hot water, no sump-pump to work without electricity, no internet, no phone. Leaking basement, water coming in all 3 outside facing doors, gutters flying off, neighbors outdoor furniture traversing through the air, BBQ grills also flying by the house, 3 trampolines went sailing by too. Well, really, anything in the neighborhood NOT nailed down was lost. My outside flowers......all gone. Hummingbird feeders......gone.
The upside to our weekend? Look at that sweetie in the first picture! This was just one of the animals at the Parents As Teachers Diego Party!
Here is Maddy with Diego!
And she was not as fond of the baby Chimp as I was!
And this is ALL she wanted to do at the party. Swing, swing, swing......with daddy standing near. It really was a very nice party. They had huge Diego puzzles, cats and dogs from the local humane society, balloons, snacks, juice, make-your-own Diego vest, jungle painting, animal search, and LOTS more! Great fun!
So, the only new jewelry I got in was one pendant, one pair of earrings and I had just started some custom Mother's Rings when we lost electricity for the second time Sunday. Let's hope me week goes better!
But in all seriousness, I am truly sorry for all of the families in Texas that are enduring this hard time. I can not image what it must have been like there if it was this bad up here in Missouri. You all are in my thoughts!
Have a great week everyone, in case I do not get to make it back here. I have a full work week ahead of me! Take care!
