Well this will be two years straight that I haven't gotten to spend with my daughter on her bday. Tomorrow she will be 25... 4 days ago she had emergency surgery and I wasn't there for that. I hate being so far away.

I Hate waiting just want to jump in my van and start driving!  But we have to go North this weekend for a wedding, already paid for room etc. and bride would be heart broke and my other daughter too if we didn't show up.   My heart aches  Sailor stayed all night at hospital with Melissa Wednesday night, then all day waiting with Dave, kids were at day care they figured normal was best for them.  then she went home last night and picked them up, made supper, baths and helped get them in bed and back to the hospital to stay with Melissa!  She's exhausted, worried.....she Needs to get some homework done!  Her classes start on sunday and test are Friday & Saturday......Oh this Mama needs to calm down.  I couldn't even finish my glass of wine last night!  I haven't slept for 2 nights, I can't imagine what they are going through.

Oh JayDee I'm so sorry.  Prayers going up!

Blondie glad its going well. The power of prayer! Say one for me. I stepped in a yellow jacket nest. My foot that just had surgery took the majority of stings but they got me every where. Just got back from the urgent care and feel miserable.

Oh, and southwest let her take her seabag (not full) as a carry on !  They also will allow extra bags when they are flying on orders (free of charge). 

Comment by Najul on July 21, 2016 at 2:50pm

Blondie - Just as a heads up on how good they can be. She came from Virginia to San Jose, CA and her fare would have been $1300 due to the last minute approval for leave, but we got her fare for $375, so this is a very good one to know !  Plus, since she left from a big airport the wait time for TSA was 40 minutes (even at 4:00 am) and she got to zip through the 5 minute "Pre check TSA" line which took only a minute, so she was sipping tea checked in near her gate while people stood in line. It was really nice and all you have to do is have Southwest put their DOD number from their military card in their Southwest profile and they will always get pre-check.  At airports like Chicago - could save them 2 hours ! I highly recommend taking advantage of the precheck and the military flight costs.  I haven't checked Delta, American or United yet, so don't know policy.  Southwest was cheapest flying from the east and is cheapest to fly to San Diego while in California, so I thought it best to put all her miles in one place if possible, plus they let Military board first :-).  They for sure earned our business, seemed like they gave the biggest discount when I phoned.

It was a downed tree that took out the power!!!


Thanks so much for that information!!  I never knew that!!!

Thanks for the info Najul

Anna, Sorry you were in the dark and don't imagine it's fun riding out one of these storms in the camper.  I know all about no electric and no water!  Did the camp ground have damage?  We've had everything from small limbs, to branches to whole trees uprooted!  A friend about 7 miles away video taped the first storm (last Wednesday)  definitely spinning going on, he never caught a funnel touching down tho. once it hit the it hit the muck (Willard/Celeryville) it picked up that light black dirt and you couldn't see or breath!

Glad your spoiling that granddaughter it's a grandma's job!  hehehe  I love to listen to them chatterand you're right they say the darndest things!
