The Icing on theTrees

Our state is bracing for an ice storm this weekend. People are really scrambling about at all the grocery stores stocking up on food as if we would be stranded for weeks. When I went to Harp's earlier today there was no: bread, eggs, hamburger meat, or bananas. So, apparenlty people are having banana breadpudding with meatballs all over Fort Gibson.

I am very grateful for our current house right now. It has no power lines to freeze and break, and no large trees that will blow over and hurt us or the houses or power lines. Our Muskogee house had power lines near some large trees and I always worried about them falling or freezing. Especially after one HUGE oak tree blew over during a thunderstorm.

Thank you all for your well wishes last week when I felt bad. I am on the mend and feeling much better. I work at the front desk of a medical clinic though and have patients hacking and coughing on me all day. I asked Santa for a plexiglass window for Christmas but didn't get it.

Here is something else I don't get: patients that call and say, "Is there something going around?" DUH!! I always ask very politely what kind of symptoms they are having and agree , "Yes there has been some of that lately. Would you like to make an appointment?"

Bargain Hunter of the Day: Nana, My Mom. Found Rockport tennies for Uncle Joe at $17.oo!! These are $90 shoes!! WOOHOO!!

I am SO looking forward to sleeping in tomorrow. I may even take a Tylenol PM to make me really sleepy ...........

I have a good book to read tomorrow and lots of movies to keep the girls busy. I plan on cuddling up and having a pajama day.



  1. it would take way more than a tylenol pm to get me to sleep..maybe a clonk on the head

  2. Yep, it's 10 am and I'm still in my pajamas! I love it. Peanut's "cleaning" her room so that she can be rewarded with watching one of the movies I let her rent yesterday. I have done a few other laundry, but I'm not going to over do it just incase I can't get out tomorrow either.

  3. I missed you.
    I am so glad you are feeling better.
    Woooooohooooooo on the Rockports!
    Rest,relax, and get all better!

    Have a wonderful day!

  5. I spent the weekend in pj's, too.

    Woohoo on the rockports!
