Wishing you were here

I just wanted to take a minute to remember my baby brother. He was a brilliant, funny, wonderful, lovable, sad guy who took his life one year ago today. I miss him terribly and wish he was here for just one more day so I could wrap my arms around him and never let go! I have been trying to think of the good times with him, but I am still so sad that it hasn't eased the pain. I hope that wherever he is he knows we loved him so much and will forever and ever....... Andrew, I miss you!!!!!!!!!!!!! Big Hugs from your big sis Wizzie;)~

Crazy Dreams

I can't tell you what this means, but hey it's a dream......

My husband was an astronaut and he was getting ready for his flight. He had to take radiation pills to make it through the atmosphere. We lived in my childhood home here in Ohio, but we had remodeled it. He was taking off in the backyard landing zone of course! lol Then I went to check on the banana trees in the basement we planted for the gorillas. ??? Then the guy in charge of them said we should have planted oranges. ??? Then I remember I am late for my husbands take off and I run outside. He hasn't taken off yet, but there are cabin pressure problems and they are trying to fix it before his radiation pills run out. I have to run to the store and then I get lost in this truck I am driving (don't know where I go that). I then realize that my son is inside the house alone sleeping and I have to find my way home to check on him. He is fine and I leave my mom with him. I go back to the landing pad and check on my husband. They scratch the flight and we all go inside. THE END.

Dan the astronaut!!!


Tornado or Not?

During my daughters birthday party I checked weatherbug on the computer and saw a big line of red coming our way. The my brother said "moms car windows are open". I look outside to see blackness fastly approaching the house. I find my moms keys and my husband Dan runs out to close her windows. Just then the down poor starts. He makes a dash for it and within 10 seconds these crazy scary high winds pick up and start rocking the car. I run inside and tell all the party goers to get in the basement. Yes I was screaming at them like a crazy woman! I look outside and see the tree falling down and the chairs flying against the back door. I scream for my husband and we all head downstairs. We sat for a few minutes and could hear banging, lightening and thunder, the wind howling, and a loud popping sounds (the electric transformers). The power went out and we found candles. My poor daughter starts crying "I am gonna be the only girl that dies on her 10th birthday". Poor thing! Then it all got semi calm except for the thunder.

We made our way outside to find our poor trees down and the neighbors too. Shingles were everywhere and front door mats that weren't ours. Fences and a gazebo was ripped out of the cement. The basement started flooding in ours and the neighbors house. Thankfully no one was hurt and the houses were still standing, but boy did it give us all a terrible scare! They say it was either a storm burst with very high (80mph) winds or a tornado trying to form. I don't care what they call it! I am just glad it's over! It took a day to get the power back, but it's back and now I am back to blogging!
