What a week!

Hurricane Ike has caused some major damage. Some of that damage caused our power to go out like everyone else in Huntsville. We woke up at 6 am Saturday with no power and haven't had any since. Ty has a generator in his work truck that we used for our ice box...(it looks funny to type that but that's what I've always called it!) so our food wouldn't spoil. However, he had to go to work Wednesday. So I packed up our freezer goods and came to Jewett. I have been hanging out with my sister for the past couple of days.

I didn't realize how much we depend on ELECTRICITY. No hot water for showers, no television, no lights at night, no microwave, no computer, no anything pretty much. School is closed this week and they are supposed to make a decision on Saturday about next week. I don't think I can go to work with no power and no shower! But we'll see!

I am SO thankful that a tree didn't fall on our house. Some of our neighbors weren't so lucky. I have been thinking "GEEZE! I NEED ELECTRICITY! I NEED A SHOWER! BLAH BLAH BLAH!" And then I think about those people from Galveston who don't even have a house to go home to. Compared to that, no power seems so minor.

I'm praying for them.......please say a prayer for them and everyone else who has been hit by this storm.

Here we go!

1. Even though the wedding is over and done with I am STILL reading wedding magazines. I love reading The Knot because they have real stories of how people met, the proposal and everything....I love it!

2. I am super OCD only when it comes to folding towels. If they have a stripe(ours do)- then all the stripes have to match up. And the washclothes all have be folded and stacked the EXACT same way. Ty thinks I am crazy!

3. I am so addicted to John and Kate plus 8! I haven't had time to watch so I've been recording it. She is a great mother :o) and her kiddos are precious!

4. I always wear my seatbelt....always, always. Unless I am the passenger! I am horrible about remembering to put it on unless I'm driving I guess. I am working on that!

5. I love to buy and collect scrapbook stuff- stickers, paper, name it-I have it. However, I hate to use it. I mean, I love scrapbooking but I feel like I am going to run out if I use it. Weird, I know!

6. I can't keep ANY plant alive. Not even a cactus! I water and water...they die. So I don't water for a while....and they still die. I even put miracle grow on some of my green plants and they DIED!

7. I have become super obsessive over what I eat. I haven't had a Dr Pepper in over a month(and I used to drink 4-5 a day!!!) I am drinking lots of water and trying to eat very healthy.......................................because I'M PREGNANT! :o)

**I go to the doctor September 23rd so stay tuned!!!! We are sooooo excited!
