Here it is.

Well the storm has come and gone and left us with no power for about 5 days. I am very grateful to my friend, Geannie, who let me and the girls come stay with her since her power came back on saturday evening. It was a little tight with a total of 6 kids and three adults in the same house, but it all worked out. My husband stayed and toughed it out here with his friend from Beaumont. My heart goes out to the families that are still waiting for power and water at their homes. Leslie is anxious to get back to school and hopefully they will go back on monday. I would write more on here and more often, but by the time I get to sit down at the end of the day, I just feel exhausted though I really couldn't tell you anything significant that I have done today. But I do have a rather clean house and some of my fall/halloween decorations up now, so I guess I was a little productive. I'll try to be more interesting next time.

Home At Last!!

Well after almost a week away, I'm finally back home safe and sound. We were going to be gone two days longer, but Gustav made us decide to come home a little early. There wasn't much traffic and only a little rain and we made it back in one day! I really thought driving for that many hours with two kids under the age of two would make my hair gray but they were very well behaved in the car. We had a good time while we were in Alabama. I got to see a lot of family that I haven't seen in ages and a lot of pretty scenery. Our reason for driving up there was to go to my niece's wedding up in Tennessee. She was a beautiful bride and looked very happy. By the time the reception was over, we were having trouble getting my daughter off of the dance floor. She was a little shy about getting over there at first, but once she started shaking that booty, she was no longer worried about the rest of us. I'm trying to figure out how to put the video of her dancing on my myspace page.

I did something wonderful yesterday! I got on the treadmill! A friend of mine gave me one a while back and I finally got around to using it. I also have decided to join the free pilates class that they are offering at one of the gyms in town. I think I have finally come to terms with the fact that my clothes aren't fitting that well anymore and I don't think walmart carries any larger I have to do something about it.
