7 Quick Takes April 19 2013

The weather around the country has been quite interesting lately.  While parts of it have been getting hit by major snow storms, we just had a Noah type experience.  A lot of rain has come down in a vast area in a short amount of time.  Crazy!!  The creek down the road from us overflowed its banks and destroyed a few houses that were in its path.  It is amazing the power that water can wield.

For all you visual people out there, here is the visual QT to go with the #1 written QT.

Continuing on with today's QT theme, when you see a sign blocking a major road that says "Road Closed Ahead" and another next to it that says "Water on Pavement", what do you do?  Most people, it seems, just don't believe that it is true, because all day long they've been driving down the road and up to the point where the water is at and then just sitting there staring at it.  They then have a choice: to turn around or drive through.  There have been people who have chosen to try driving through.  There's even a car buried in the ditch to prove it.  Come on people, what do you think the sign is for????

Anyhow.  With the weather being so goofy lately, and the fact that it is mid-April and there are no leaves on the trees yet and the temperatures have been quite frigid, I'm panicking about our large party that we will be having in a few weeks.  It's the beginning of May, I thought.  We can have it outside, I thought.  Guess what?  I'm thinking differently now, which means we're in a panic about where to have a large party on short notice without paying a ton of money.  Prayers appreciated :)

We've hit that stage in our lives where we have more drivers than cars and more people that need to be somewhere than cars to get them there.  Keeping track of it all is requiring its own calendar!  Someone in this house has to buy another car, and soon!

 Some of us have a busy weekend, some of us have a quiet weekend.  Mr 8 yo has his First Communion retreat and the girls will be helping to teach them songs to sing.  Not fluffy ones like in the past, but meaty ones like "O Sacrament Most Holy" and another one that I can't remember right now.  I'm so excited about that!! Hope you have a great weekend.

God Bless!
