Crazy Weather!

It started Tuesday night. A rumble here and there, a flash every once in a while. Then the drops started falling. Hard.

Got the kids to sleep, followed by ourselves to bed. The soft sound of the rain on our roof put us to sleep fast (ah, the joys of a one-story house!).

I woke briefly and was jut dozing off when BAM! A horrendous clap of thunder just about shook our 1268 square foot abode, sounding like it was coming from the new stadium about a quarter-mile away.

That's when I looked outside and saw the unending lightning strikes. Since our next-door neighbors have a HUGE oak tree in their backyard (picture a 45-50-year-old oak tree in a backyard- nearly taking up two backyards!), this made me very nervous. Enter my old friend, nervousness. It felt like an hour later I was finally asleep as the storm crept away, only to be awakened by... hail!

I quick checked my phone and was promptly relieved to find no tornado watch let alone a warning. I then rolled over and went back to sleep.

The next day made for some awesome cloud-sightings on my way to work and throughout the day. However, the storms apparently thought they were so awesome that they just HAD to come back and taunt us one last time. Lather, rinse, repeat. Except last night, we were able to avoid the hail. The lightning, I'm not sure about since I didn't look too much. I'd had enough nervousness for one week.

Well hello, and goodbye, May!

Now that it has been oh about 3.5 months since I posted here, too much has happened! Natalie turned 9 months old, began crawling like a little pro and sprouted 4 teeth at once, and Jessica is Jessica, running around and talking more and more each day.

At her 9-month checkup, Natalie was a little over 21 lbs so needless to say she has outgrown her bucket and is now in Jessy's big-kid seat from daddy's car. She is cruising now and what can I say, between work and two kids and my mom (she had surgery, but that's a whole 'nother post), I'm one busy CrazyMom!

And oh yeah, the job? Going beautifully. It had started out as a temp-to-hire position and blossomed from there. Since I had just come out I not one but two bad experiences with that type of work arrangement, I went into this one with much
trepidation. I quickly found out that the company is an awesome one and the boss? Well, she's awesome too. I have been hired on permanently and am now making yet another dollar more per hour.
