What a weekend!

Well, the golf tournament I (we) have worked on for months was rained out Saturday. We did have the dinner and auction on Friday night. It went well considering the area was flooding! It stopped raining just for me to get there on time. We made $3100 on auction items. Most of our money is brought in on the golf course and we were all hoping and praying the rain wouldn't come this way, how wrong we were! I got a text on Saturday at 7:30 am saying it was cancelled. Then the weather didn't look so bad so I told my gf, "it better come a torrential turd floater or I'll be pissed!" Well, about 3 hours later, here it came! It rained and blew and thundered and lightninged (is that a word?)like it was the end of the world. The power went out probably 8 times but never stayed off for too long, thank goodness. There are some in our neighborhood that still don't have power, saw 4 power trucks go down the street last night at 10pm. There was a tornado touchdown 1/2 a mile from us and I knew when it hit, the winds were crazy! These poor people weren't even back into their house after Ike and now this! Sucks...We got close to the point of needing to put up furniture, especially when the inconsiderate wackos drivers fly by and throw a wake up and wash out all my new mulch and bedding plants! Nick was being "flooded street cop" for a time since it was so high! We were also taking pictures of them and their license plates in case we got water in the house! Texas weather is amazing, this house had NO water during Ike, but 6 inches of rain in an hour comes much too fast for the drainage to hold up. Thank goodness it stopped just in time! Here are a few shots from Saturday:
Nick the "flooded street cop"!
my gf's car that would have had water in it had it still been in the street!
So now I have another dilemma, the tournament is rescheduled for a weekend I'm supposed to be at a family wedding in Dallas. I was looking forward to it as a weekend getaway for Nick and I but now I'm reconsidering going... no I haven't RSVP'd yet, if I had I would be going. I just hate to put in all the work and not get to enjoy the fun part! Plus I'm the course photographer this year and not sure who I could trust to take that over. Well, there is a little time to figure this out.
In other news, Trey's play is this Friday, please keep me him in your prayers. He knows his lines, but during practice the auditorium is empty, when it's full and everyone has an eye on him, Lord knows how he'll react. I know I'll be a nervous nelly!
Mom and Dad left on their cruise yesterday for 7 days, they'll have a blast! Can't wait to hear all about it!
I fell crappy today, not sure what is with me, but I was hoping to get back to the gym today, at least this week! It's almost summer and I am in no shape for a swimsuit!
Well, ramblings over..... I'm out!

Family, Fun, Frenzy & Fuzzy!

Seems like it's been forever since I've been here! I have been really busy. No, not at work, I don't have a paid position in a fancy office. I'm a MOM. Who has time to hold a job and be a Mom? God bless em, because if it were me, I'd never have clean laundry, house, kitchen, kid or husband.. they'd be all dirty all the time! We have had Spring Break, (see: bored 9 yr old after 2 days), we had family in town from Ohio on their Spring Break, then got a new family member, a fuzzy one. Maverick, he is another rescue. Like Merry, our first Anatolian, we couldn't let him go without a family. He was orphaned, long and sad story, in North Texas and brought here to our friends that do great work with the National Anatolian Shepherd Rescue Network. We saw him and fell hard, he is precious, but he's a puppy and I wanna wring his neck, or course not literally, but dang those little fangs hurt!
SO he keeps us busy, and the play practice (read previous post) and playing tourist with family. Back to the family visit, it was fun, Trey wasn't bored, he had two other boys to hang with, my cousins kids, they all got along great. They got in on Friday night, so everyone came here from the airport and we had dinner. Saturday we hung out at my parents and the kids played outside. We were supposed to swim, but the cold followed them down, it was way too chilly! Sunday they had plans across town, so we did our normal things. Monday was Space Center Houston day, I have been many times, but there is always a new attraction, this time was "Pirates". Of course the kids favorite is the Martian Matrix (a huge plaything like McD's, but waaaaaay bigger).

Then Tuesday we went to Kemah, yes, it's back. There are a few rides that Ike messed up and they have fixed, but there are some gone totally and some that won't be back for a while. It looked good though considering!

We went out to the bluebonnet field and got lots of pics, but I didn't have my camera, so I'm waiting on those and will post when I get them!

Hope Spring has made it to your neck of the woods! Get out and enjoy!
