so far so good here!! my hoodoovoodoo seems to have worked LMBO at myself and my silly superstitions..
basement now has water..pumps are handling it well!!! power of course is still on! my relief crew of one has taken over so maybe I can sleep?? after all I did the hard part of unsticking a pump and setting the other one up..lol he just needs to watch that the free standing pump doesn’t run dry..lol
Men swear they are next to useless at times!
I did read up on everyone..chicks with chainsaws has me in stitches! lol
so far lucky no trees down in immediate area..BUT my sisters back yard flooded and her lawn equipment shed is collapsing and it wasn’t a cheapy either! not to mention her new riding mower was in it..oh man is she ticked off..but at least she is safe and dry..
as to our kid..thanks moms..I thought the same thing ! lol haven’t heard from him so far..but where he is working was declared state of emergency and two fire fighters were shocked..both lived, but they have not released the names yet..I just hope he calls when he can to let me know he is ok. but I am sure he is tired and feeling like dog poop about now..
yeah that poop word popped up again…lol sorry..
I am gonna try to get a few hours sleep…hopefully the relief crew can handle it now..lol and hopefully the worst is over…
HOWDY!!!! we’re got home around 9:30am; both girls and their families came home too. dd2 and us live on the same street; we had/have electric, but no cable(tv,phone,internet). Cable came on around 1:15. dd1 has no electricity; Mom doesn’t either(she’s walking distance from us). Our neighbor next door and the one behind us(with the chickens) don’t have electric. We’ve been blessed for sure.
It’s been raining steady, but light since early this morning; winds seem to be picking up again. Our yard looks exactly like Ro described hers. ‘Course the pool is a mess with clumps of leaves, singles, and twigs. That’s ok, least the big oak isn’t tipped into the pool of crashed on our roof. We’ve been blessed.
Thank you all so much for your prayers! ♥ I read up from the other thread and seems we’ve all had some challenges, but again we’ve been blessed. I pray for all those still battling the wind, rain, and flooding.
btw, flooding wasn’t an issue at our own house; the predicted wicked wind with Irene aiming right at us, fearing downed trees and wires, is what sent us off to, what we thought, a safer location. Then watching the weather last night in our hotel room, those dang tornado warnings kept popping up! Our house was in the path of one(no we didn’t get it), and further north where we were staying was in the path of another one!!! neither one got us. We’ve been blessed.
Hi moms! getting home was a breeze. dh took three highways and two roads; only one spot closer to home had water on the road, with workers putting out cones. We almost had the roads to ourselves; which was a bit creepy, but made for a fast trip home. There’s no place like home! (borrowed from Dorothy)
yep, warm and fuzzy! Alisha, Irene’s shift just a bit to the west was what saved us at the shore from getting the full face brunt of her. Also, she dropped rather quickly from a cat 3 to a cat1. We are blessed.
Hey everyone! I’m glad to hear you are all okay. We’ve got downed trees and limbs all over the place, and several large creeks in my area are way over the banks. If I had any idea how to operate a chainsaw, I’d probably be out back having fun with future fire wood.
This humidity is a KILLER! We have been at 100% or close to it ALL DAY! It’s only 75 but feels like in the mid 90’s! April and June just lay around panting all the time. I finally got them cooled off by giving them some ice cubes and aiming a fan right at them. Poor babies.
DH is on his way home but won’t be here for another 2 hours.
I just want to go out and sit in my truck with the AC on.
Love, will you be able to do the clean up yourselves? are you safe from flooding? dh says we’ll tackle the mess here tomorrow. Our debris isn’t big like whole trees, rather leaves and clumps of them covering every inch of the yard.
We’ve got a creek behind the house but we’re way up the bank, so we’re safe. Good thing too, since it has risen about five feet over its bank!
My husband was out after dinner with the chainsaw. We have one downed tree that we’re calling in the professionals for, but he can handle the limbs. It’s a small tree, only ten feet tall, so it didn’t hit the house.

alisha…warm and gushy made me laugh… and I almost GOT warm and gushy cause then I coughed! lol
yes It ‘s a nice feeling knowing there are friends out there caring about you..like a BIG warm hug!
I am down to using one pump right now..and I am so thankful we kept the power..but you can bet I will be a naggin” till that generator gets a new carburetor!
ain’t now way no how I am getting caught with my pants down again! lol ohh that sounded bad..lol but you get my drift I am sure..just chalk it up to potty talk from a very tired and punch drunk (wish I had some punch with vodka in it) woman..and I have yet to go out into the yard to asses the damage there…though I KNOW there are branches to be picked up.
RF..who do you think you are..Jim Cary..(in Liar Liar) kickin’ you own butt? roflmbo girl you be careful now you hear?! I hope your face doesn’t hurt too much ..and wish you luck with that clean up job!
Gramma glad to hear you OK!
@ moms..yeah we did get hit hard..but I swera there was something to all my mumbo jumbo prayers last night as it turned just enough to take the worst away from where I live! I have heard from our boy..hs is home and tired..and as we were talking got called back..poor kid..but he is getting experience..and doing something good with his life. my old house got flooded I heard and the the whole area I lived in just 4 years ago…got it bad! all my family is well and have power..so that good too!
unfortunately there are the dummies you get,,,two men decided to go out in a canoe ..one got saved the other still missing..and then you get the ones who thought it would be fun to go inner tubing! 3 missing…what were they thinking????
Believe it or not Enchanted, in my area, there were people out there driving around during the worst part of the hurricane! I was ready to put on my slicker and go out there and ask them what the heck they were doing, but then I wasn’t dumb enough to be outside in that mess.
hey there MOMS, FLOW, ALISHA, CHANT, RF, TOBY, GRAMMA, CATS, LS AND last but not least…DEE!!!
so happy to hear that everyone seems to be ok. i miss you guys!!! ♥
poor rf. that isn’t fun at all!!
it’s been a busy weekend with dh off for the past few days.
dee, i use to clip coupons…years and years and years ago. i would still if i could actually remember to use them…or where they were…or remember to actually pull them out when i’m in line. . . **pretty horse**
BAAaaaa HAAaaaa HA HA HA i so just got it…i SERIOUSLY must be overly tired…things like that do NOT get by me. i just got done taking care of the cat (about 15 minutes ago) and it hit me…. Colonel Sanders!!!! DUH!!! ROTFL!!!
i do LOVE moms sense of humor!! that is GOOD STUFF!!
maybe i should name mine popeye? no, not the same as “popeye’s” huh…doesn’t have that zing like Colonel Sanders.
oh well, i do like shooter. thanks dee, i just might use that!
Ok moms???? I HAD to clean my keyboard thanks to the Johnson comment..lol I just happened to be taking a drink…thanks goodness it was only water..
(reminder to self..new site..they have twisted mind just like yours..do not drink while reading!)
seriously..I am SOOooooooooo over tired, I passed out sitting straight up while watching true blood with the man..he got mad and woke me up..I got mad and came downstairs! lol he can cuddle himself!
and laughing at the mancation thingy..how do I get one of those??? LOL!
RF..yeah I can be umm descriptive at times..and devilish sorry..lol and don’t worry I will get it too probably..I STILL have the outside to clean up..I just didn’t bother even walking out that door today…no sense..
I wish we could all get together at the same time and pop into a live chat room I do have one set up..CWC has the site I wont post it here because I don’t want to look like I am advertising my site..I’m not but it’s not being used..and there is an open free chat room if anyone feels like they want to try it!.. just IMAGINE the trouble we could get into in there with just all adults??? (insert sinister giggle here)
I’m just glad your all ok..and so very happy I didnt get severe flooding as a lot of people I know did here.. HUGS to you all!

Well im ticked. I got my schedule today and i have gym AND swimming first trimester. Swimming first hour, and gym last hour………… not gonna happen… I ended up talking to the principal about it when we were dealing with some stupid locker situation and he said that its possible that i could have the gym class changed, but i most likely wont be able to get the swimming classes changed… lovely. I also need to call the school back tomorrow to see about getting my locker moved because they put it in the tech wing for the second year in a row.
just popping in to say hey!! i am extremely tired (what’s new) and have more to do here. and it doesn’t look like i’ve done anything.
CONGRATS on the eggs alisha!! i so miss collecting them. =D
moms, vegan is funny!
hey rash! hey choco! it will be over before you know it. just look for the positive in the things you truly can’t change. if there is no positive, then look for it else where? LOL
rf, i so remember EXACTLY how you feel!! when we had the 3 hurricanes come trough back to back it was a nightmare!! i did get a baby squirrel out of it though. we named her frances. she was the one responsible for it. . .
AND I MISSED CHANT AND KRAFTY. (oops on caps) but i can’t be a night owl anymore…i think i’m getting too old. i can’t keep up.
Evening ladies! My husband and two of our neighbors are out front right now dismembering my dogwood that blew over during the hurricane. I’m glad because we won’t have to pay the tree removal guys, but I’m sad because I loved that tree. We only planted it like two and half years ago. The sounds of the chainsaw trio are driving me crazy though.
Do we have any clue when this Nafaria event is going to start? Maybe the fairy can tell us? I can’t wait for it. I love those prizes!!!
dee, you get your quest assigned when you first adopt your pet. And you can only trade quests with people on your friends list that have AP pets. My kid and I traded quests that we didn’t have duplicates of. We both have the crocodile hunter quest, the she sells seashells quest, and the treasure trove quest. (Between the two of us, we got 1 treasure trove, 2 she sells seashells, and 3 crocodile hunter quests.) I’d be happy to trade a quest with you if we’re allowed to do that here. Just let me know which one you want: crocodile hunter or she sells seashells (prizes are the crocodile pool and the Salley’s seashell art). If you have the cave potato crock pot quest, the lightning cake quest, or the griffin guardian quest, those are the ones we need. I don’t know why they didn’t assign mini quests to each pet, that way I wouldn’t have any duplicates.
and I was going off the two pets (one each) we have. I got the griffin statue and dds quest is for the crocodile pond I just assumed same pet for each acct would get same prizes and quests. I like duplicates as I can share with my peeps on here
Did you want to trade quests or just quest prizes dee? I can do either. I would have to friend you with the account that has the quest if you want to trade quests though. If you just want to trade prizes I am PellyTH so I will friend you from there.
You can send your quest to anyone on your friend list who has an AP pet toby. Which quest did you get? I am interested in trading my duplicate quests. I have an extra she sells seashells quest and 2 extra crocodile hunter quests.
I would love the cloud concern quest toby! Do you want a crocodile hunter quest or she sells seashells quest? I will send you which one you want and I will send the other to dee since she doesn’t care which quest I send her.
dee and toby, I will have to send your quests out tomorrow. I’m having trouble figuring out which quests my kid and I traded and which ones are still available since we have so many duplicates. I might have to call webkinz to get this sorted out, it’s such a mess.
Hello everyone! of course looks like no one is here.. again…lol
I do have the adventure pets all but the chimp..I did all the quests already lol and most of the mini’s but have another mud hippo for my 2nd account! I actually like this..can’t wait for the daily quests to start! lol
I only dislike one thing..that all that diggin on the mini quests only gets you wshop stuff..that kinda ticks me off..a little anywho.. as to what you can get away with onWW for pet names..you would probably be shocked..it’s all in changing the letters so the filters don’t catch you..
my guy love to give me..shall we say not so proper names to try on here?? lol he named my bulldog b******k uhhuh..you saw that right…lol you really DON”T want to kow the others..though I guess if your on my friend list you could look on my page thingy! lol I hope I didn’t offend telling you that name..and if you have to delete this I will not take offense! lol just had to share..still think the rooster names are hilarious. *edited by momskinz
RF, so sorry your hurting..yard work has a way of doing that to you..and I might just try to find one of those covers for my keyboard..good thinking on your part! lol
You know..I have to say, I really was blessed by the fact that I made it through this storm without major problems..I know a lot of people didn’t fare as well here and I am saddened for them.
My cellar is in the drying out stage already I have my huge floor fan going..and one more day should do it..to think earlier this year(spring thaw) I got flooded to my whoo whoo..and this time less then 2 inches high the whole time…what a great pump we bought! well worth the money!
well hugs to you all! have a good night! wish some one was on to come chat with me..lol now if I can just nag him enough to get that generator fixed!!!
Long car rides…. fun… i am so ready to get home. This little internet card thingy has its advantages, but its still pretty slow, but i probably shouldnt be complaining because at least it lets me have internet in the car. Its too slow to get WW to work properly, and i cant adopt the little Oriole i got last night until i get home.

My mom got a call from the school earlier about my new locker, i have to call them back tomorrow to find out where it is and what the combination is. I still having gotten my schedule taken care of, i probably have to wait until school starts for that. I wanna get the gym class switched to another trimester and get swimming moved to 5th or 6th hour. Then maybe i’ll ask about getting environmental science switched to astronomy or something.
