1 Week Down...

Hello all, hope that everyone is doing well. Seems these days we are dealing with weather issues all around us. Either it's fires, droughts, floods or tornadoes. Not too far from here in Maryland there were some tornadoes that touched down the other night. Our nice cleaning lady told us that piece of info! In Woodstock, Ga. where I used to live there was one probably not even 5 miles from our old house. It did some damage, but no deaths. There are road closures everywhere up here because of the flooding. Dave drove down yesterday to be with us and it took him 3 hours to get to Manhattan and usually takes 1. As for Texas, we have family dealing with smoke and poor air quality. Not to mention the extreme heat this summer. I wish I could share some of this rain with them! I have not seen sunshine since I left NY!
The girls are finishing up their first week of school here. It was a tough week and they really deserve a relaxing, fun weekend. We thought DC might be a good idea because of all of the 9/11 festivities and memorials. Then I found out about the threat alert. So, now that I think about it, not such a good idea. Hopefully, nothing happens but better safe than sorry. We decided that we will head down to Annapolis tomorrow and show the girls around. It's a cute town with a lot to do. Let's just pray this rain stops so we can enjoy the day....and so the flood waters can recede!
We have to leave our hotel tomorrow and stay in a different one tomorrow night. This one is booked. Packing up should be interesting! Our friend, the cleaning lady, was even laughing about how much stuff we have! Then we have to come back to this one Sunday night! Long story...but that's what we have to do! A change of scenery will do me some good anyway,I
think!
Thanks for everyone's concern about the girls. They are doing better and better everyday. They are 2 tough little cookies. I know things will improve drastically once we get in our house. They are already fighting over which bedroom they want. They both want the room with the "pool view". Did I mention that we don't have a pool? Lol Well, have a great weekend! A special thank you to all servicemen and women who have fought to protect us. All of the 9/11 stories on tv have been so touching. Keeping all 3,000 lost and their families in my prayers!
