You are the wind destroying my wings

YES we lived through the Ohio hurricane or whatever it was. While most people were hunkering down in their basements Addie and I were out in the backyard marveling at how flat the tree's were lying down when the wind blew and how it sounded like a plane was landing on the house. Let's just say I didn't know that it was really "that bad".

I made Danny drive in the midst of the winds with us up to my ma and pa's house. We saw trees through roofs and the road was closed but I was determined because I was hungry and my dad made us dinner.

We had no POWA for 4 days and that was okay because friends kept giving us food and my mom took us out to dinner multiple times. So I think I gained 10 lbs during the power outtage.

To commemorate all the fallen trees (not really, we just needed new trees in our front yard) Friday night we planted a maple tree for Addie and Eva. Addie was very excited and made a rock border around one of them. (see above) and Eva was generally frustrated and angry she couldn't run around bare naked with nothing on but tap dancing shoes. Then she fell asleep.

I've been blogging alot lately!

Come fall come

heat is sick

Like sticky, wet, warm.

That makes me want to submerge

my head in ice.

Ohio is clammy.

I gave a sermon on the wonders of saving money and budgeting to the Piqua ward ladies last night. I felt self conscious. I just need to take another public speaking 101 course where all the sophomore boys stare disdainfully at whoever is forced to stand at the pulpit and preach about why the pop machine needs juice in it.

Danny's ferrari (sunfire) needs 1000 worth of work. Who says we trash it? He wants a Toyota Yaris. It's like the tiniest Toyota model out there. Danny and small cars go together. That would totally bust the budget though.

I finished the hat for my friend's baby boy.

Post from a friend

A friend from church wrote this article and I thought it summed up my thoughts on Sarah Palin.
