Storm update post

well it started at around 8 AM. and now its definitely upon us. the winds are whipping up and the rain is coming down hard! nitro is very nervous! to be honest so am I! I’m not good with storms and neither are most of the kids!
we are staying safely indoors. no going out for us. everywhere is closed! well practically everywhere. our country cannot handle storms!
The weather warning is in force until 9 PM tonight. so we have a long day yet to go.

No storm yet

nothing yet, but its on the way! The rain has started!
I’m a little bit nervous!
I hope we’ll be ok. We’re on our own. And our home help rang to say they got a message from their boss not to come to work today.
So looks like we’ll be preparing our own food. So I told the kids they could have chicken nuggets and amy wants onion rings and we’ll have hash browns too.
At least we slept ok last night. Went to bed at around 11 and its almost 4 AM now and we slept for all that time which is really unheard of for us.
I brought nitros bed out into the hall and shut my living room door. He seemed to like it in the hall, well the little bit of time he spent in the bed, because mostly he slept with me lol.
Anyway thats the update for now will keep yall posted as to how we do with the storm.

Hard to hear

so we got some sad news today. an aunt of ours, our moms brothers wife, is dying. she has bone cancer, and she was given the news yesterday that she only has about 1 week to 1 month left to live.
She has been really ill for the past couple of weeks. last week she was admitted to hospital, and they gave her two blood transfusions. the doctors told her yesterday that she isnt making blood, and that they cant give her any more transfusions. basically there is no more they can do.
we are all devastated.
If you pray, please send prayers our way.
her son is a drug addict and he is on the streets, no one knows where he is so he hasnt been told yet.
her daughter also takes drugs. she isnt quite as bad as the son but she’s still bad enough.
moms brother her husband, is frantic.
imagine the stress he’s under? a dying wife, and two addicts for kids?
it breaks my heart. i havent seen her since she got the bad news.
i’m not sure i’m strong enough to see her.

Wet Friday morning

its a wet day outside this morning. very very wet.
I woke in the middle of the night, and I stayed up for about an hour. eventually I was able to go back to sleep.
I got up at 7 and mom washed my hair. I have an apt with my cpn sarah at 10:15. was meant to go volunteering after that but I don’t think I will go. its far too wet.
we’re supposed to get the end of a tropical storm in Ireland this weekend. so there will be high winds and lots of rain.
my dad is gone to his gastroenterologist this morning. he’s hoping she’ll start him on some sort of treatment. he’s pinned all his hopes on it so I hope he wont be disappointed.
he also had physio this week to retrain his bowel. the physio gave him exercises to do and a chart to mark off each time he goes to the bathroom.
my mom went with him. she’ll go in to the doctor with him and ask questions because he never does.

To my followers, question time!

so wordpress tells me i have 1 thousand 155 blog followers. Thanks, everyone! I am in awe! Who would have thought my little blog would have so many kind and wonderful followers following it!
Another blog friend asked her followers some questions, so I thought I’d ask mine the same questions.
I’m especially interested in your answers, especially those of you who rarely or never comment! I’d like to get to know all of you and start some conversations!
So please answer these if you dare!

  1. How is your day going so far and what are you excited about doing in the near future?
  2. What is the most favorite aspect about yourself, and why?
  3. What is the biggest challenge you have faced thus far in your life, and how did you overcome it? And if you are still working at it, what’s your game plan?
  4. What is something you are a jack, master, or expert in/of?
  5. What was the subject of the last dream you remember having?
  6. Why is your best friend your best friend?
  7. What do your favorite pajamas look like and why are they your favorite pajamas?
  8. If you had a time machine (think TARDIS) and you can go anywhere in space and time, where would you go and why?
  9. Why is your favorite color your favorite color?
  10. What was the last thing that you laughed at — like hard core belly laugh, spewing soda out your nose, sides hurting, can’t catch your breath?
