At 5:00 am I woke up to nothing I have ever experienced in my life, but then I’ve never been out East before!. In the west, we count between lightening flashs and the sound thunder makes. This is normal. Not this morning, nothing was normal about this morning. I never new that lightening can flash all the time everywhere, non stop. In the West we do the “one and two and three and…” and get excited because the storm is getting closer when the counting gets less. This morning if I tried I would get to count to “o…….” I feel stupid. I was hideing under the covers. I don’t think I’ve called out Jesus’ Name so many times in one prayer. And then Dave and Shannon say “no, that was not normal, that was a bad storm” I wish they had said it was.

I am looking forward to blogging, I’ve never done it before, in fact I was blogging while Jacob was sleeping he just woke up and Q came and cut the first blog off, so if you get a weird 1st blog, and then this one, oooppps. I’m having a blast…so far. I love kids, and besides my hair is already gray, don’t need to worry about any sudden changes after 2 1/2 weeks of “baby sitting”. These “kids” are great. Q says thankyou all the time, (he felt so bad for cutting the 1 blg off and said sorry” It’s rare for kids to have manner these days!!. Emma is such a help!, Liam is………(I Love him!!)….and Jacob is so cute!!!
I’ll share about who I am and what I am during the weeks to come.
Bye for now,
I miss you already weeneeee!


I'm the Cool Mom of 4, Married to the Preacher Man, but at times I'm a little more Sass than Saint!
