Take Cover!

Last night was an interesting evening. Kody and I went to eat dinner at Red Robin (yummmmmm) and then watched the movie 27 Dresses. It was so cute and funny. Kody was pleasantly surprised! We rarely have evenings when just the two of us can be together. I miss that. Anyway, we had heard that bad weather would be coming in that evening...we just didn't know when. I tried to get into bed around 10:30 so I could wake up and run this morning, but I'm not sure if I ever fell asleep before the tornado sirens started going off around 11:45. If you know me at all you know I get very excited about weather. I don't want to have bad weather, but I think storm chasing and meteorology is fascinating. Kody and I had watched the weather move in for about 15 minutes before Kody said "Alright, time to get in the bathroom". He puts Bailey and me in the bath tub with couch cushions around me and on top of my head. My neck is sore this morning from that dumb cushion. Kody would peek out and look at the TV screen and tell me "the rotation is right over us!" At that point I was actually a little nervous. I have never been nervous during a storm before. I'm used to bad weather since I grew up in Oklahoma, so I was surprised by my reaction. It finally passed and we got by just fine. This morning I found Bailey's water dish and a hanging plant (which was hanging before the storm) in the opposite corner of our yard! I thought that was pretty impressive. Our chairs were all over the backyard as well. A lot of people lost power because of the storm, but luckily we did not. I prefer my power on.

I'm looking forward to a weekend at home and not traveling. Kody has a lot of studying to do for boards. Three more weeks! I'm looking forward to those being over, of course then we have to wait six weeks to get his scores...that might be more stressful than anything!
