Well, my daughter moved out Saturday, I tried not to cry, really I did, but couldn't help it. When I think it will never be the same, I get teary eyed. Why can't they stay little, why do they have to grow up. She borrowed a friend's truck and moved out in a couple of hours. She was so excited, I tried to keep a stiff upper lip for her, but it was so hard. To make matters worse, she broke up with her boyfriend, was really sorry to that happen. Now all the dating starts over again with new guys, I can't screen them now like I use to. At least right now I am dog sitting during the day,so I know I will get see her every day when she pickes him up. I even miss that darn dog. She so lovable, even though she chews up everything.
We had some really bad weather here the other day, 2 tornadoes touched down. I was at Winn Dixie at the time and heard everyone say, look outside, it looked like it was midnight (It was about 2:00 in the afternoon), it got so dark and started raining hard. By the time I had gotten home, the tornadoes had already touched down, luckily several blocks away. I went and called Samantha to make sure she wasn't out driving, luckily she had just gotten back to the dealership before it started storming so bad.Samantha and I went out after the storms had passed and looked around town, there was alot street flooding. The picture above is on the main highway. They had one lane closed off, it was up to the front bumper going through it. They wouldn't realize the kids from the schools till after 4:00 because of the weather and flooding.
Traffic was really backed up, took quite awhile to get through town.
The Creek that runs behind our house, we live in town, was almost overflowing, normally the water is only about ankle deep, but it was over 5ft and flowing that day. We have an inground pool, and this is the first time it had every overflowed, because the back yard slopes and usually runs off into the creek.
Well, I almost have a couple of new patterns ready. Hope to have one finished tomorrow to show you all. Keep me in thoughts as I go through empty nest syndrome. I keep telling my daughter one day she will understand. But she thinks it is silly to worry about her. But us Mom's know we won't every stop worrying.
