Flood Report

Its rained nearly 10 inches over the past 3 or 4 days here in KY. Of course, everything's flooded - not to the extent of Georgia last week, but its a mess none the less. Several roads are covered with water, even I-75, a major interstate highway is flooded between Richmond and London (KY) & I've never seen that before. I'm not sure how long the rain will last. Everyone hopes it ends soon. Believe me, a flood was not what I wanted for my birthday - Did I mention my birthday is today? One year, on my wedding anniversary I went through a tornado (I was in the building when it got hit) then another year there was a bomb threat at the same building as the tornado. Now I have floods on my birthday! There's just no end to the "excitement" I find on what should be happy celebrations. Oh well, this too will pass. I hope your day has gond better than mine.

Very NQR, Stress Filled Week

Dear reader, forgive me for venting here, but its very necessary to rid myself of the tremendous stress I've incurred this past week. I've endured my daughter-in-law's surgery, the hospital visit & its aftermath. There was the ongoing problem with my special needs grandchild getting her meals at school, that problem is still being attended to & investigated all the way up to the state level.I had to confront the cafeteria manager & school principal about this. All that added to the ongoing & constant stress I endure at home has consumed me this past week to the point of exhaustion & numerous headaches. I can only hope for a quick solution to these problems & quieter times ahead. I will attempt to return to quilting & art, one place where I can escape it all.
