pain v. reality

look at this.. I learned to make a storyboard! Thanks to some great gals at 2P :) just wonderful :) I know there is more to it but this is a start for me! yippee!
here we go .. a minute to spare...

woke up with a tremendous migraine.. heck, went to sleep with it..
You never know how to compare your life until someone else tells you of theirs... Grandpa's farm was hit by what is being called straight line winds.. it's a mess so my dh tells me. He was going to go back up and help clean but I needed him here to take care of the kids and give me some breathing room. I didn't scrap, I didn't run around outside, I didn't draw... I didn't cook.. I slept, took a bath and heard the cows next door mooing. I looked outside to see the cows looking right in our back yard.. why??? Because 2 huge buzzards- the size of my 3 year old- were hopping around.... yep- big ones.. hopping!!! yikes! I knew I felt like death but seeing them really made me laugh! I needed that.
Anyway, the farm is bad off.. a barn over 100 years old flattened. What a mess. 100 mph winds. Baseball size hail. 5.5 inches of rain in one hour... man! Noah, build that ark!!!

I hope to go up soon and see for myself. It's like a sign "with neon and everything" ... telling us of an ending of an era....

A farm destroyed versus my migraine... the pain of the migraine won to keep my dh here to watch the kids... but I know his heart is at his Grandpa's place... mine is too... wish I could be up there picking up the pieces...


hey... wanna crop? We are going to have a crop at www.theshakerbox.com this weekend... if you haven't gotten out to your LSS or to some friends come join us there and have some fun!!!

You have buzzards in your backyard??? This so made me think of bugs bunny cartoons when I read this...do they look the same? After all you have been through, you always find the time to smile. I love you AM!!!!!
