Sandy the Frankenstorm

We have secured everything we can.
We bought food to snack on.
We bought bottle water.
We bought some more games to play.
Puzzles to put together.
We bought more batteries for flashlights.
The one thing we couldn't buy was a generator because no one had one to buy.
Now we sit and wait.
Wait to see if we lose electric.
Wait to see if we flood out.
Wait to see how pleasant Sandy is going to be to us.
Wait to see if another storm front is going to collide with Sandy and turn it into the Perfect storm.
Wait to see how much damage we will have due to wind and rain.
Schools have closed for the rest of today and tomorrow.
Stay safe my friends.
The East coast is about to get ugly.

I hate waiting.......

Aloha Friday

It's Friday and that can only mean one thing. It's time once again for Island's life question of the week.

Do you find Social networking a blessing or a curse? We have seen it both ways in our house. I love the fact I can keep up with family and friends via facebook or twitter but boy has it bit us on the butt too. Hubby learned that the most innocent of posts can lead to talks with the boss. Funny thing he wasn't even friends with his boss but someone he works with said something to the boss. He has since deleted everyone he works with. Last month I learned thru facebook that my Mom's brother had died. My uncle's son had posted how his Dad had passed on. Everyone else had gotten phone calls including my grandmother's sister and another uncle's ex wife. They had been divorced for 10 years! Yep. Someone forgot to tell me. I just chalk it up to lessons learned. Let's face it we never had this type of social networking before. I'm thinking by the time our kids are our age they will have it perfected! Maybe??

Don't forget to head over to Island's life and answer her question of the week!

Wordless Wednesday

Last week was fire prevention week at Bubby's preschool and of course that meant a trip to the local firehouse. He was thrilled to see all of the fire trucks there. Umm.. So was I! I love the firehouse. It's one of the trips I always try to go on with my kids. Did you happen to notice his outfit??? Someone(ok me) thought it was orange day at school. Camo pants might have been his idea. :) #parent fail

Wordless Wednesday

How do you entertain a 5 year old boy? Put him on a petal bike go cart. Last year he couldn't even petal, this year we couldn't get him off of it. What a difference a year makes!

Vera Bradley sale online and at stores...

Today Vera Bradley is offering 40% off of Boysenberry,Happy Snails and Tea Garden. It doesn't state if this sale is being offered at the Vera outlets. It only says Vera online and Vera stores so you might want to call before heading out to any Vera store/outlet to see if your store is partaking in the sale. I have two daughters who are crazy about Vera Bradley and I'm always looking for Vera sales or bargains. I am so determined to finish Christmas shopping early this year that I might take a run over to my Vera store to see what they have. Honestly who wants to be shopping in December???

Happy Thursday!!!

Wordless Wednesday

I think that pesky little Elf is back! I came home from dropping my son off at school and thought I would change my blocks that said Happy Birthday to happy Halloween. This is what I found. After texting two of my daughters I still didn't have an answer who did it. Mystery was solved when my third daughter came home from school. She was trying to change the letters to say poop on a stick but didn't have enough letters. Only in my house! Haha!
