Thunder, Lightening and Rain - Oh My!!

The boys are out for the weekend Father - Son camping trip so I had my friend Amy & her daughter spend the night with us. Of course, we had a severe storm warning with the possibility of tornadoes - Yikes!! We had lots of thunder and lightening and HEAVY rain but no tornadoes - Yay!! Us girls had a great time. We played a fun game and watched Dan In Real Life. It was a good movie. Amy is totally Italian so she whipped up a roux and made a yummy creamy mushroom pasta for us! We love to cook - And Eat! And since we like to eat, we had Casi make up a yummy buffalo chicken pizza - Casi is the Pizza Pro now! She was so sweet, she made the little girls a plain cheese pizza too. We devoured it all! Riley and her daughter stayed up until 1AM!! I had to make them stop talking and go to bed so I could! Now by the time I went to bed, I looked at Amy and she was dead asleep, flat on her back - she looked like she was in a morgue! It was so funny! I started giggling so hard I had to hold my mouth so I wouldn't bust out and wake her up. Anyway, there is something to be said for people who live with such a strong sense of Faith that they can sleep on their back completely relaxed. Most people sleep curled up or turned on their sides, like they are shutting out the rest of the world. Not Amy!! When she is done for the day, she is DONE and she puts it all into God's hands and signs OUT!! I have a lot to learn from her in that area.

Pre-Alzheimer's + X-Men Power = Funny Trouble

OK. so I totally forgot to write down any information about my blog. Most importantly, my user name. Second most importantly, my password. Geez- that made it really hard to:

1.) Find my blog this morning
2.) Sign into my blog this morning
3.) Not shut the computer down or "freak it out" in some way.

It seems my powers increase with my frustration level. Had a few screen flickers when I started realizing that when I stay up past 10pm that I don't really remember what I had done the night before!! (Who needs alcohol??!!!) Anyway, I was getting frustrated and leaning too close to the screen and it flickered on my. It was OK though, once I backed away, it stopped. I know, that sounds really weird and I can't really explain it other than to tell you that I can't wear a watch either. Those freak out too. Now, if I could just harness this power...I could rule the world!! (Add Maniacal Laugh here) In all honesty, I would prefer to be able to use the computer without breaking it!
Of course, my sweet hubby who is almost always patient with me and my computer problems was not here for me to call upon but I know he will be proud to find out that I figured it out all by myself!
So now I come to the point of getting on the blog this AM - I wanted to post pictures of our trip to the Sunshine State! My sister's daughter got to have a makeup night and chose blue eye shadow and red lipstick - too bad my beautiful French sister in law couldn't come down for the party, she would have laughed her head off!! My mom would not participate which is hilarious since she lets the grand kids do everything else to her. (She would probably even let them experiment with Super Glue if they asked!!!) Anyway, here are some great pix!

Howdy! This is my first foray into a blog. I wanted one because I see others blogs that I enjoy. NOW...if my X-Men power* will just stay under controll, I think I can have a lot of fun with this! *X-Men power consists of my uncanny ability to shut a computer down or freeze it up just by coming close to it!!
