We survived our four days together and Soul made it home safe and sound...eventually. I understand she had a bit of a rough time of it, but i suppose it makes for good story material, because you can't find any other good in the weather in Iowa in January. Ugh. When we were planning this get-away, I looked at the extended forecast and it was smooth sailing all the way..riiight. Even up to the day before the storm, they were saying minor-minor-minor, and once it started snowing, it was just a problem. Overnight though, they changed their minds...and issued a warning. How sad that all these people spend all this money to go to school to be a meteorologist, they spend gazillions on computer equipment and still cannot predict a snowstorm. Even when it's already falling...Just goes to show you that us humans cannot outdo Mother Nature, and I kind of like it that way. However, I felt bad for Brenda. I had hoped that interstate was in better shape than it must have been. It sure wouldn't have bothered me had she just stayed, but I knew that wasn't an option. :) Oldest's boyfriend did call and offer to drive her there in the truck, and I knew it must be bad for him to do that, but she didn't like that idea at all, insisting she could handle it. And she did just fine. I was happy to hear that she was safe at home, though,
We ended up with eight inches of the stuff , by the way. More coming tomorrow..woo hoo!
Brenda and I had a great time these past days. After she left, it was a little quiet here. That's a good thing sometimes and a sad thing sometimes. I spent the day doing what I didn't do when she was, got caught up on the housework, she must think I'm a terrible slob, I didn't do ANYTHING. Keeping busy when your heart is a little sad is the best way I know to beat the blues...so that's what I did. I spent the remainder of the day on my rear end, until we went to church last evening...lazy much?
Today. kiddos coming to dinner. What am I cooking? I have no idea...I suppose I had better get that figured out...
Happy Sunday. :)
