weather etc.

So… Sunday was the earthquake and now we are being told there will be an ice/snow storm coming this week!  I will believe it when I see it but oh well.  Mom is retiring.  Her last day of work is Friday.  They had planned a retirement party at the Cowboy Hall of Fame on Friday but it has been postponed in anticipation of bad weather.  I am hearing the grocery stores and walmart are all crazy tonight for the same reason.  I can’t really understand it because it isn’t really supposed to hit until Thursday????  Oh well.  They are rumoring loss of power and other things.  Like I said, I’ll believe it when I see it. 

Amanda has had a terrible time locating all her textbooks for this semester at OU.  One is still on order at the bookstore, they have ordered the wrong version twice.  So frustrating!

I had lunch with dad today at his favorite mexican “dive.”  I was driving home and passed his house… he was checking his mail and even though I have been sorta queasy the last three days and this particular place sounded gross to me I didn’t want to pass up the opportunity to hang out with dad 🙂 … It really wasn’t bad at all & I enjoyed it! 

Matt had to go to work early this morning and so we got up at five rather than six to read.  We have been waking up and reading 30 minutes every morning at 6 a.m.  We are almost through Luke.  Anyway, I would be in bed but have to pick Emelia up from bball practice in an hour so I am waiting up.  Blogging isn’t a very productive way to kill time… guess I’ll go fold clothes 🙂 …

p.s. John T. – I made your pasta tonight.  It was good but yours is still better.  I think the whole wheat pasta was the main difference 🙁 .
