120 million

Jason has been big into buying lottery tickets lately. And he's so excited about winning. It's fun to sit around and talk about what we would do if we won. Today he decided if we won, he'd open up a small restaurant and he'd be a short order cook. I decided I'd travel the world full time.

Ahhhh, what would you do?

Taking It Easy

We've been taking it easy lately. This weekend especially. We only had one thing to attend (the other was cancelled due to rain). That means we stayed at home and relaxed all weekend for the most part. The girls had a birthday party in our neighborhood Saturday so the only time we stepped out was to get the gift and get a few groceries Saturday morning. Then, we ended up hosting an impromptu dinner party on Saturday night. It was a great time, as always. Today, I've laid around all day and even took a nap! I like lazy weekends.

Honda Crosstour

This is a celebration item. I NO LONGER HAVE TO DRIVE IN A MINIVAN! Don't get me wrong, there was a time in my life when I longed for a minivan. And when I was pregnant with Olivia, that dream came true. I drove that minivan for five long years.

That changed for me the other day!

I bought a 2010 Honda Crosstour. It's black, it has all the bells & whistles, and it has a sunroof!! It's adorable and I love it.

I certainly miss my kids being babies, but as they grow it's just as exciting!

Rain, rain, go away......

I've never seen anything like this before. The rain has been so strong, steady and long lasting, that we are flooded. Water logged. Drowned. No other way to put it.

Let me start with yesterday. Rained all day. About two in the afternoon, lightening hit some where in my yard or very close to my house. Knocked out FIVE of our flat screen tvs, the wii, surround sound upstairs, build in stereo downstairs and pretty much all of our computer accessories (and you know how we roll in that department -- DEEP). So after we stopped crying and arguing, the call was made to the insurance adjuster and we were told we'd have to wait for a call back.

We went over to my parents house to ride out the rest of the storm cause without any media - we weren't up-to-date on the weather happenings and in TN, you need to know about possible tornadoes ASAP.

Anyhow, we watched as cars, houses and people were engulfed by raging water. It was and is unbelievable to me. Houses we drive by frequently, GONE. Family cars, GONE. Sweet Lord, the people. It's horribly sad. It's amazing how fast these things happen. We were watching LIVE television and these cars were on the highway slowly going around water. Within seconds, the people were jumping out of their cars trying to jump over the median to safety as their cars were washed away by the instant raging water. It was insane.

In the big picture, my stupid electronic picture doesn't matter. We have insurance and most of it will be covered. There are children out there tonight in my community that can't sleep in their bedrooms. And for that, I'm horribly humbled.
