It is crazy around here.

As everyone south of us is gearing up for Issac, we are gearing up for some much needed rain. Of course there is still a chance of some flooding and power outages but it should not be anything major.

Summer is on its way out but first it decided to give us a parting gift in the form of nasty colds for everyone in the family.

Today I lost my voice. Do you have any idea how hard it is to get someones attention when both kids are at full volume and all I can do is whisper?

Thankfully someone suggested a whistle.

But that scared the crap out of the baby so I am back to flailing my arms like a moron.

Cake makes everyone feel better.

While I try and get us all feeling better, if you are in the hurricane path, please stay safe and take care of yourself.
