Weekend Update: Ruckin' Fain

This weekend was LONG. I am blaming it on the fact that after fleeing from flood waters at early dismissal on Wednesday we did not return to school until today. Holy Ruckin Fain!

After being trapped here for days I began to appreciate Noah as I was beginning to consider eating my young.

That being said, the waters are receeding and life is beginning to take on a little bit of normalcy for those of us that weren't effected by the flooding.

My good friend isn't one of those lucky uneffected people. Her finished basement literally collapsed! No shit! That's a little scary!

Spent part of the day yesterday helping her and felt so blessed that she and her family are okay. It's good to be reminded about what can't be replaced and what can be.
I heard some excellent advise today and I will close with it.

In panic situations, it is important to stop and think even more so. Because it is in those situations, when we just want to get there or we just want to get done, that we are most likely to make the biggest mistake.

Breathe deeply, my friends, and remember what really matters.

Now that's some EXCELLENT advice! I wonder who said it???? Seriously, these kinds of things really do make me think about what's important and what's not!

I'm so sorry for your friend and her problems. This rain has been awful in so many areas. Snow days, rain days, flood days Holy Stromboli the kids will end up with no vacation time if thak kind of stuff keeps happening. I hope there are no more 'surprize' days off for y'all.
