This will be the second time I've written this post...my bad computer keeps shutting down and losing everything. So, I'm going to get this done quickly!
I've got to apologize for losing the entire month of May! Where did it go? I've only written one other post...no wonder I'm losing readers...even my mother has quit checking to see if I've updated!
One of the reasons I've not written is the tornadoes. Even though I wasn't directly affected, it does take a toll on the nerves. Every part of our state is part of a disaster. Trees are down everywhere. Houses gone. Businesses gone. People's lives are gone.
Monday, I had to go to Tuscaloosa with 'Bama Girl to help her find a new apartment. Even though I had seen Cullman and the devastation here, I still wasn't prepared. Even the drive down I-65 is bad. Coming down McFarland Drive in Tuscaloosa, everything looks okay, but then you're slapped in the face by it. For example:
This is Hobby Lobby and the debris? Milo's Hamburgers and Full Moon Barbeque. Across the street? Krispy Kreme...gone. But to be honest, pictures don't do the damage justice. To be in the middle of it all is the real slap in the face. And I can't even imagine what it must be like to be one of the survivors of this. My heart goes out to them.
To other news, we did find 'Bama Girl a new apartment. And she has two new roomies, one is from Ohio and the other from Mobile, AL. They all start law school in the fall. Roll Tide!
Plus we bought 'Bama Girl a new car! Bye-bye, Tracker!
And on the home front...WE HAVE COWS! We now have registered Angus cattle. Thursday, we got three: Savannah, Stephanie, and Asia...not names I would have chosen, but these are their registered names. And...the woman who had them, kept them as pets.
And then...we got 7 more.
Now, we have a herd of 10 cows. In September, we'll have 15 after the babies are born! *squeal*...I love babies!
I had a chance to buy a Gammill quilting machine for a very, very good price. But, it had a 14 foot table and I had no place to put it, except in the garage or David's shop. I was afraid it would get dirt in the mechanisms and in the tracks of the frame. I'm very sad. I really, really wanted it. But, I have a "good enough" quilting machine and that's life, so I really need to get over myself, quit whining, and make a quilt!
Not much else has happened, except I think I've might have been bit by a spider. I think I'll probably go to the doctor tomorrow. There are blisters, redness and swelling around the bite area. It's also very hot and I'm having a few flu-like symptoms. Ugh!
**Just got home from the Doctor's office and he said that I'd definitely been bitten by a spider. He said it was either a brown recluse or a black widow...he wasn't sure which, but gave me some antibiotics and told me not to be playing with spiders anymore!
That's all, folks!
