OFF THE BLOG

Wow!  Life sure has been interesting lately.  I was going to post my weekup for the week before last on Monday but a tornado came through our town and we were without power for 5 days.  I was in a tornado as a very small child but I don’t remember anything about it.  This was my first time being in a tornado where I was able to remember the experience and know what was going on.  Let me tell you, I don’t ever want to do it again.  I have NEVER been that scared in my entire life.  I was watching the live feed from one of our local weather channels on Facebook when our power started to flicker and I lost the feed.  At the time we were just having rain and wind.  A couple minutes after that my mom called me from her work and said they were having employees take shelter and that I needed to get the kids and take cover.  I had barely gotten the boys to our safe spot, had them cover their heads, and then was going to lean over them myself when I heard a really loud cracking noise.  I looked up just in time to see a tree fall beside our house out the bathroom window.  I was bracing myself for the tree to hit our house, but thankfully it didn’t.  I dropped on top of my boys and started praying.  I was so scared.  This is what our front yard looked like: 

On Friday we took the kids out to a fall festival at a church.  They had so many fun things to do there and everyone was so nice!  I’m glad we decided to go.  My favorite part was the hayride.  😉

I’ve been doing pretty well in my classes lately.  I recently turned in my second big project for the semester in one of my classes and I got a 98 on it, so I was happy with that.  I also got a 93 on my midterm in one of my other classes.  I can’t believe this semester is almost over.

  1. My goodness!! A Tornado? That must have been terrifying! Glad to hear that your family is okay. Really liked your weekly funny – I’m going to remember that next time I get tired and rub my eyes too hard!
