Good evening,

Still rumbling a bit out here, but the severe stuff has passed. LC was scared and came out of his room, wanting us to put our hands over his ears. I just got him to go back to his room by giving him a stuffed Santa Claus and turning on the Christmas lights in his room. It got here and the wind picked up and was blowing the rain in the window, I was sitting about 9 feet away and was getting hit with rain. When I told my wife about the severe t-storm warning, a train was going through town with the horn blowing, she was all freaked out thinking it was a tornado siren, it was the first time I have seen her like that since the tornado 2 years ago. We also don't have tornado sirens up here, I did sign us up for Code Red warnings though to call our home and cell phones when severe weather threatens.

I should probably head to bed, back to work in the morning.

I hope everyone is safe tonight.

Good night all.

I will keep her & you in my prayers, friend.

Maybe a glass of wine & a bubble bath? Or whatever way you can escape for a little bit. Sending big hugs!

P.S. I recently had a conversation with my folks, and we talked about my sister's & my rebellions, being grounded, and having bad attitudes as teenagers, etc...neither of us got in any real trouble. But, hard to believe we sassed the way we did- even though it was nothing major, I feel terrible, because I know I hurt their feelings back then. I apologized for both of us, and we had a good laugh.

My point is, this too shall pass!!

You are right Snowflake, it will pass. And I'm sure we will also laugh about it one day!

Go for the bubble bath and wine someone else mentioned here...with the door locked and the music turned up!
LOL Christmasstar, I had a conversation like that with my daughter earlier this evening.
It is amazing how different they all are!
