Fragments and Following - Double F Friday

UPDATE - We did get bad weather TODAY and actually had to go to our storm shelter. Tornado was about three miles west of our building. We are safe but don't know if we have power at home. The storm shelter won't get cell phone coverage but we have WIFI so was able to keep in contact with Whitney so she could tell me what was going on.

Hooking up with Mrs. 4444 for Friday Fragments.

Mommy's Idea

The weather is supposed to be nasty tomorrow. The good part of working with weather people is I know too much stuff. And I get free codes for weather aps. Got one for Whitney that acts as a weather radio and wakes the phone up if there is severe weather where you are. Uses GPS so it knows when to act. I like that and feel a little safer with her having it.

I really need to decide if I'm planting anything this spring. We tore out our front hedges two years ago and still haven't put anything there. I'm thinking maybe I'll plant flowers. Of course I'll have to pull weeds to do that. Blech. There is a reason why I stay inside all summer.

I've been working on seven different proposals this week. We may have good news about one of them where I can do a little less work. Its my biggest one so that would be super exciting. However the one proposal that I really need to get done can't be because the organization hasn't announced our guidelines. They better hurry because I have people on it and I need to figure out how to pay them shortly.

I actually made a to do list the other day for work. I don't do that too often but was so covered in paper I knew I would forget something. Luckily I've crossed off several things on the list and only added one.

Whitney hurt her knee yesterday and went to urgent care. They wrapped it up and gave her crutches. Poor thing is trying to get two tests, three papers and a presentation done in the next week. Plus a bunch of sorority stuff to raise money for their cause. And today is Relay for Life which she is doing.

Cruise countdown is 9 1/2 weeks. I got to print out boarding passes last week. Let the excitement build.

I survived volunteering at two services last Sunday. The 10:00 had 1,800 people. I'm not kidding. We had every chair in the auditorium and overflow in the lobby so they could watch on a big video screen. For the six services they had there were 8,000 people. That was the most they have ever had. WOW is all I can say.


  1. Relay for Life on crutches is no fun, I hope she feels better soon!

  2. A cruise? I am beyond jealous.

    I've given you a blog award. You can find out about it here:

  3. The volunteering for services - did you give a presentation?
    Weather apps sounds useful unlike most of the apps I hear about.

  4. I don't want a tornado, but I'd be real glad if you sent a little rain our way!

  5. I hope your house was fine and Whitney is safe as well. Can you send some rain to Georgia, we are drying up and blowing away down here.

  6. Sounds like an interesting week in your household. The anticipation for a trip is trip almost as good as the trip itself isn't it?

  7. WOW that is a packed list! first of all glad you are safe! second it is hard to pick what to plant because most this time it needs maintainence and I am always thinking do I really want another thing to do. :0/
