Easy like Sunday morning......


I made it though the long day yesterday!  I may have been soaking wet by the end of it but I did make it. 
The bucket drive went well.  We made almost $700 yesterday and we had four people throughout the day so that will be a little over $100 dollars each for our fundraising.  It will be added to today also but I am not sure how many are working and if it is the same people as yesterday.  So it will end up being a bit more than that.  I have to get through my three hour shift today and then I will be free.  Free to clean house I guess!
After the bucket drive I went to Kristens game.  The football team won 32 to 0.  It has been raining and raining and raining some more here since Friday.  Yesteday it was raining when I started the bucket drive and it was raining four hours later when I was done.  The rain did not stop once in that entire time.  It slowed but it never stopped.  The football field was a mess, the boys were covered in mud.  I wasn't sure they were going to make the girls cheer but they did and they stood out there for the whole game and cheered.  I brought Kristen and her friend home for a shower right after.
Kristen was spending the night at her friends and I was going off to the party for Suzanne.  My drive there was horrible.  I am surprised that I drove the entire way (it is a 40 minute drive on a good day)  It was raining so hard at times that you couldn't see any farther than right in front of you.  The freeway was flooded in several spots.   It was very important to me to be at Suzannes 40th.  The rain was stopping by the time I got to the bar.  The bar we went to is called Boogie Fever.  I love Boogie Fever!   I danced ALOT last night.  I didn't drink last night (well I did drink water) it is just to long of a drive home and the weather was so bad.  The drive home was not anywhere near as bad as the one there.  It was still drizziling but not pouring.  I got home around 1am. 
Now I am just having some coffee, trying to wake myself up a bit and getting ready to head out to to the bucket drive.  Hope you all have a great day!

thanking the Lord the bucket drive went good! I prayed people would be generous! so many people getting rain; I know some of it is from Ike, but wow, lots of inches coming down all over the country! I hope the girls don't get sick from cheering in the rain, as well as the team; I know football plays in any weather, but I'm such a "softie", I'd be bundling them up as much as I could, LOL

glad you enjoyed your friend's party!!

hope today goes well!

Hi Linda! Thanks for stopping by my journal and leaving a comment!

Whew, was this some rain, or what?! Sounds like you got pretty much what we did. Lots of rain, but not a lot of wind. I hope we can all start to dry out soon!

Sounds like you had a lot of fun at the birthday party, and YES, I love 80's music! If you're still looking for drink ideas for your trip, email me if you'd like to try Slimeballs. Sounds a little disgusting, but they're tasty! ;)

All my best,
Beth
