Slight Change of Plans

First of all please pray for all of those effected by the terrible tornados and weather last night and this morning. So many lost everything, including loved ones.

Here is what my to-do list looked like for today. (key word: lookED)

4 or 5 loads laundry
make bed
Get ready/shower
Wash grapes and produce
Unload and reload dw
Clean smooth top range
Order door lock from Ebay
Iron mine and hubby's clothes for Friday
Cook supper
Go see mil tonight
Balance checkbook and pay bills
Call QAC and order vaccum battery
make appointment for hair
clean out boys closet
Iron clothes for boys (at least 20 pieces)
Fix hubby's lunch

Well...........let's just say not going as planned. Last night I started thinking about Mason's surgery and I got really upset. The bad weather on it's way did not help my feelings any either. I finally got to sleep around 11:30pm and hubby had set the clock for midnight (to check on the weather). I had a full blown migraine by then. I took a Relpax and laid back down, only to hear Tiger coughing. I got up and realized it was time for more prescription cough medicine so I gave them each some (as Monkey was also starting to cough by then). Finally.......sleep! Until 4:18 am when the weather radip sounded. _ _ _ _ _ County is under a tornado warning!!!!!! Hubby usually gets up to leave for work at 4:20am so he told me to get things together (took all of 3 minutes and got in the Durango) and he would follow us over to my parents "for safekeeping". My parents have a basement and we do not. So the boys and I hung out over there until 7:45am and then came back home. I put the boys down to finish out their nightly sleep (which had actually more of a morning nap). I then laid down. I took a 2 hour siesta!!! Yay for me. Got up, grabbed a quick shower, got ready and by then the boys were up. Got them up and changed (it's a pj day) and they fed themselves breakfast and now they are playing. My Mom is going to watch them while I run my errands but hardly any of the other things on my list have even been touched. So I am revamping and hoping to get it all accomplished by the time the Speech Therapist arrives tomorrow morning.

Hope you are all safe and sound! Praying and many blessings coming your way!!!!!

I was wondering how you fared through the storm. It's going through our area now, but we're mostly just going to get rain, maybe a thunderstorm.

I hope everyone is feeling better, and I'm glad that you got that nap. Getting enough sleep makes so much differce, doesn't it?

Marva said...

Thanks Babychaser. Us too!! Blessings!

Marva said...

I am so glad you guys are okay. I watched a video online of the destruction and my mouth dropped. I will be praying lots for that area.
