Tuesday Tidbits

I am getting the time to blog but not much time to check your wonderful blogs!! I will try to find some time. I have to do this when I can find wireless and as you can see i have FOUND some!! YES!!

First thanks to Denise at Samaritan Woman I actually won a gift from a blog!! YES!! Thanks for drawing my name!!

We arrived here in Rochelle, Illinois yesterday around 4 in the afternoon!! We had a great time seeing everyone again.

We waited around for a bit because the kids were expecting some new furniture!! Finally it came! We all hopped into two cars and took off to Rockford. On our way there our radio said that we were under a tornado watch. Boy was the sky awful!! We kept driving and made it to the mall. I was glad to get inside because outside was not great at all!! We could hear the winds and the storm outside. Our granddaughter was back at Rochelle working at DQ. She kept texting her mom and sister telling them that she loved them and was going to die!! smile!! It was a very bad storm.

After the mall we came back stopped at the DQ so that we could order from Emily!! She did a great job of course. Our oldest granddaughter, Brie works at Culvers here in town. They both deal in ice cream. Pounds going to be put on this ole bottom!!

Came home...and just got all comfy in our motor home. You know that this has been a very tiring trip so far!! I just like sitting!! Vacations sometimes make you really tired you know!!

Guys are on their way today to Chicago to see a CUBS game! They are of course thrilled to death. I don't know what we girls will do but I need to wash somehow..somewhere!! Showers are being taken now...so I am off to that area soon too...

Take care everyone!! Thanks for catching up with me even though I am so busy right now.
Miss you all.

FLIP FLOP!!
Thought for the day: "Amazing! You hang something in your closet for a while and it shrinks two sizes!

Hello dear Sandy:-)

I'm back from visiting my boys and now trying to catch up with everyone! Sounds like you're having a fabulous time visiting family and friends, and how wonderful that your dad's and Ron's birthday party turned out so well!!! They must have been very touched to see so many people come out to give them their best wishes. I so enjoyed seeing all your beautiful photos and congratulations on your new motorhome, it's a beauty!! xoxo
