10 more days to go . . .

The weekend went by way to fast! We went to the ASU game Saturday, but other than that we didn't do much. I still wasn't feeling great, so we just took it easy for the most part.


The game was fun, until it started pouring down rain! Luckily we had stashed some emergency ponchos in my purse, just in case. And boy were we glad we had them!  When we got there it was sunny and breezy, and maybe a little cloudy, but then it started getting dark! And before we knew it and faster than we could get our ponchos on it started pouring down rain. But thankfully it only lasted a few minutes and then it stopped for the rest of the game.  ASU didn't win, they lost 24-27. Bummer.

Saturday night was interesting, as what was left of hurricane Ike was passing by us. It was hard to sleep due to all the wind and hearing things crashing outside. I was sure our windows were going to blow out several times, but finally about 6-ish the winds settled down. We also lost our electricity from around 5am -8am. So, we didn't make it to  early service church. Which would have been interesting, since the church was out of power, too. Jarrod had to drive around after he got up at 7:00 to see who all was out of power.  . . Men?! We we got to church at 10:00 we found out that there were several around town that were still out of power, so we were lucky ours came back on when it did! We didn't have any damage, Just our grill and some things on the back porch were blown into the neighbors yard. The rest of the day was nice, we had lunch at O'Charley's and then I took a nap while Jarrod read the paper, and after church Sunday night my Mom & Dad and Dillon and Brandye came to J'town and we went out to eat at Colton's.  I didn't have to cook at all this weekend! Ha!

Jarrod left this morning around 7:30. They are supposed to be staying in the same hotel and the same room as they were last week. Hopefully,they will only be gone 10 days this time. I hope it is sooner, but I am not holding my breath!

Here is a map of where he is staying [Metairie] and where they will be working [Carlisle] and [Leeville].


Maybe this round will go by as fast as the last one and they will come home for good!
