It has been a busy week here; the Iowa Round-Up is soon and we have been working so hard to be ready for it.

Tomorrow I will be cooking ahead for the food we will be having. We have worked hard all over the house to be ready for this.

I've alway thought the best way to catch up around the house is to invite people over. But for this event people will be everywhere . . upstairs . . downstairs . . in the garage . . outside.

So you have to do it all . . and what you don't get done gets shoved in a back room. LOL

It's more than just getting ready for a party . . if all these things get done . . .the rest of the summer will go well . . just enjoying the day without something in the back of your head niggling at you because it hasnt been done.

I have been falling into bed every night dead tired; but it is a good tired.

We are well ahead of schedule so with my extra time I find myself back in the kitchen, doing what I love. . . cooking more food than i originally intended for this even.

I do come in here and read every day but don't post; sorry.

This has been a straight out week for me too. A lot of family stuff going on that needs our attention. I've been lurking but haven't had my head on straight long enough to reply. I've just managed to keep up with our chores this week but will do much better next week. Have a great weekend everyone and I'll really try to be much better then.....

And my computer caught a 'bug' this week. So did I. But, now we are both healthy again.

It's good to be back. I've missed you all.

Hi Candyce and All

So sorry I have not been online since april as my kids God-Father died and we were all very close to him (btw I am 1Anjl's baby sis) so I have been dealing with the loss of him and totally let my house get messy and depression sunk in too, But now I am doing much better and the last two days I have been doing nothing but cleaning. So my house is back in order thank god! I wanted to stop in and tell you all why I have not been on and that I will try to log in everyday now.

Thanks Stephanie Group hug

That's the nice thing about it . . . if you quit cleaning it waits for you to come back to it. And when it's really dirty there seems to be a lot more gratification once you've cleaned it again.

We're all going to have periods of time where this will happen to us and then we'll come crawling back to Candyce to straighten us out.

hmm. . . no crawling emoticon?

Hi All!
Stephanie. I'm so sorry to hear of your loss as well. Big hugs to you and to the whole family. We will always be here for you for love and support.

As for me - I have some catching up to do as well. Never in New Hampshire history have there been tornado warnings issued on two consecutive days. Well, it happened this past weekend. The storms were harsh and in some places, devastating, but we seemed to come through OK.

So it's on to the rest of the week.
I have my timer going to give myself 15 minutes of computer time and 15 minutes of clean up time and then 15 minutes of 'me' time. I've got just five minutes left on the computer time part of this, so I need to do a few things. But, I thought I'd check in as well.

We are thankful you are safe. I did some catching up over the week-end so it feels good to sit back down at my desk and do my work. I like working in a clean house.

Thank you, my friends.
While it was scary, it was only a little scary. We actually had no idea about the tornadoes until long after they occurred! *sheesh*

We live very high up on a couple of hills in New Hampshire. Tornadoes usually like nice and level ground, so it's surprising that this could happen here. You just never know. And because you just never know, I encourage each of you to read the article on being prepared for an emergency ...

And I hope Barb checks in and lets us know she is ok as well???

I lived in the Ohio valley when 148 tornadoes hit the tri-state area in 1974.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tornado_records

Many people think of flat areas like Kansas for tornadoes but those little - and not so little devils can strike anywhere.

GREAT emergency list. We've lived at the back of beyond for so long, I've learned to stock up and store things for emergency's.

Hi ladies - it's me and I'm A-OK.... The storms that went through here were horrendous. The rain came down so hard and fast that you could not see 10 feet in front of you. The hard rain didn't last too long but kept coming back and coming back. Must of rained like that at least 6-7 times yesterday. We had some wind damage in town but nothing where I am (so grateful!!)
Norm and I are shopping for a new-to-me car today so I'll be in and out. I'll pop in later.......

Hi all! well, steph was away and so was I Sad Between my puppy having most of his teeth extracted, DH being in the hospital for a week, and then I twisted my ankle and damaged the ligaments.... well, its been a hellish 2 weeks! I am NOT back to cleaning the house Big Grin cuz Im in one of those airsoft casts and the crutches are PAINFUL to use Grumbling I'm lucky to get to the bathroom and back into bed without twisting something else Whistling I am certain all the dust bunnies are content with just hanging out waiting for me to get better!

Steph didnt mention, but she just adopted our mini-dachshund Jake! I think he will help her lots with her depression, but she is helping him MORE with all the attention and love he is getting! It makes my heart sing knowing he is so happy with her! Lovey dubby

I just posted to you Ann Marie but I'll post here too.

I'm praying you get well soon and I'm an avid pet lover too. I know our pets make us feel better no matter what, eh?

Take care of you!

Group hug

Thanks Vic,

Yes I am an avid pet lover. Our dachshund became our dog when he was abandoned with us. He is a great dog, but was never house trained, and no one had time or patience to train him. So he became an outdoor dog Sad and then kids got bored with him and he hardly ever got any attention. Living with Steph, he is now an indoor doggie and getting potty trained. He is also getting attention all day and all night so I know he is much, much happier! He's a great doggie and I'm sure they will both be happy with the new arrangement.
