sorry not to post earlier

sorry its been all week since I have posted. It has been a very busy week.
I wasn't able to get to work on Monday. All the roads out from my house were closed due to flooding. My parents were flooded in pretty bad.

Tuesday I was able to get into work. Two of the roads opened up so I could get through. I didn't really get to see all the damage until my ride home that afternoon. It was so much. Scary. Devestating.

It took Billy 3 hours to get to work Tuesday morning and about that many to get home. His main route to work and home finally opened up yesterday and he said he was amazed at the water/mud line in the trees...had to be 15 feet or more.

I thank God that we did not have water in the house...but I am sad for all the people who lost everything. A coworker lost her entire house and two cars. She just had a baby 3 weeks ago. It is just so sad.

We still have several roads closed and it has been 5 days now. The schools have been out all week and our county is still under a boil water advisory until hopefully this afternoon. Our county along with about 7 others has been declared disaster areas.

And to add insult to injury...more rain is expected to come in this afternoon/evening and last through tomorrow. We are already under a flash flood watch and they expect up to 3 inches. The water logged ground just can't hold anymore.

Thank you for all your prayers and thoughts. Please keep the families in your prayers that still have a long road to go.

on a lighter note...Shawn is getting ready to turn 16 soon...just 7 more days. I can't believe how old my son has gotten. Crazy. I got confirmation that Emily and I will have a booth at the Fall Fest Arts & Crafts fair on Oct 10th. I "think" I have enough drawings and such. Lets hope. And lets hope we sale some things. A few DT reveals I am anxious awaiting are being announced soon. I really want to get back into a kit club DT. We will see I guess. I've been working on a few quilts. As soon as I am done with them I am going to start my own! Just for me! Started a new painting and drawing last night. I just needed to get some nervous energy out I guess. Been nursing a headache for the last few days. Maybe stress...who knows.

Anyway...have a great weekend.

I a so glad to hear that you and your family are ok. I've been wondering and we've been watching it on the news. I am so sorry to hear about all the people who had damage. I can't wait to see what DT's you make .... if they don't take you it's their loss ... you were one of the best DT members I ever had.
