the good thing about a storm moving through at 80 m.p.h. is there really is no time to even think about much of anything. our lights flickered once and then it was over. all we had down were a few branches and a ton of leaves. 2 towns over got hit by a tornado. a restaurant i've been in a handful of times over the years was damaged pretty bad. a drive thru liquor place was leveled. a few houses condemned. i'm counting my lucky blessings on this one.
got back a little while ago from driving my mother back from her medical tests. they know for sure she has positional vertigo. she gets the rest of the results in 2 weeks or so. for the next 48 hours she basically can't do anything and has to sleep upright as much as possible. i got a good feeling i won't be going to the basketball game tomorrow. i figure i will be around here as much as possible to make sure she is ok.
so that basically means i will be going grocery shopping tomorrow, sometime. i'll have to fit that around my sports schedule. Manchester United in the morning and Ohio State at noon. so, late afternoon maybe. joy.
thankfully, i did manage to write 3 poems in the waiting room this afternoon. i'll type them up sometime in the near future. i'm hoping that opens up the floodgates. i'd like to write about 10 in the next week or so.
before the storm hit last night, i did watch most of the NFL game. i picked the damn game wrong and i am over 40 points down in my one fantasy football game. but that deficit is not that bad, as i still have 8 guys to play this week. my opponent only has 4. hopefully i can make that deficit up quickly.
i don't have a clue what i'm going to watch this evening. all i know is i'm pretty sure i'm going to keep the volume down.
hope everyone has a great weekend. i'll try to write something after my horror trip to the store.
