Our power is scheduled to be tonight from 10:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. Fan.freaking.tastic. Since it's going to be out, and since it's so hot outside, we're sending Aaden to the IL's house for the night, and DH & I are going to try and tough it out sleeping here with no AC or fans. It should be interesting.

Oh my god, that SUCKS! I know it's hot up there right now! We'd literally die, like for real, if our power went out here. The humidity is like nothing I've ever experienced before. Why in the world did they schedule it off in the middle of summer??

Allison, that sucks so bad. I'm AC spoiled in a seriously bad way.. We literally put our AC in our bedroom in may. I cannot be hot when I sleep. Ugh. I hope your night wasn't tooo bad.

Tonya, did you find your touch?!?

I'm writing this from my iPhone <3. I had a 1st generation iPod touch so this is sooooooooo fast to load boards on, JM is speedy!!!!

Melissa, that sounds delicious! You know me well LOL.

I did find my ipod. Turns out DH took it, thinking it was his, even though he already had his at work, he just forgot it was there. So when he was home for lunch, he grabbed mine.

Thanks

We didn't have a bathing suit on her because we weren't going to stay at the beach at that time.. it was the evening, and the beach was technically closed to swimming. She had other plans and kinda ran the heck in in her clothes. She had fun, though

The night without power sucked! DH took Aaden to the IL's around 8:30, then when he got home, we headed up to Applebee's, and stayed there until they closed at midnight (they're on a different power company than we are). When we left there, we took a drive through town so we could see it all shut down, and it was so creepy. Pretty much half of our town was without power, so almost everything was dark. We got home and opened some windows since it had cooled off after raining, and we went to bed. We slept until 3:30, and couldn't take it anymore, so we went and sat on the front porch. Right before 4:00 a.m., when we were still sitting on the front porch, I saw the kitchen light come on - WE HAD POWER!!! So we came inside, closed the windows, turned on our fan and went to sleep. It was the worst 6 hours of my entire life, and I seriously don't know how Amish people do it, because it sucked. I hope to never experience that ever again.

I'd have had to go buy a battery operated fan or something. I can't sleep well unless air is moving across my face. But you survived to tell us about it, wahoo!

Allison, you will be happy to know that Big Green Tractor is STILL Maddie's favorite song in the whole world. Jason Aldean is coming here September 25 for a concert and they play a commercial for it on CMT sometimes. Every time they play a little snippet of BGT, Maddie drops whatever she's doing and hauls it over to the TV and stands there sucking her thumb while she gazes adoringly at the screen. It's so cute.

I meant to go to Walmart to see if they had any battery operated fans, but I never made it. It wasn't fun, and I hope no one ever has to experience it!

Aww, that's great!!

I'm hoping my friend & I are going to get to have our weekend in Chicago the end of September. We've both found really cheap train tickets, and we found a hotel right downtown for $110! Now, I just need to convince DH that I need a weekend away!

Just book it and tell him later LOL. That's what I do...

Who's watching Big Brother?? Thoughts so far??

Jessie, the body builder guy with a really small head from past seasons, is coming to Biloxi in a few days....

I'm thinking about doing that!

I'm watching Big Brother! I can't stand Rachel. Like, from the minute she opened her mouth, I hated her. Annoying. I really wish she would have been evicted last week.

I HATED Jessie. Ugh. Seriously, hated him.

I agree about Rachel. I thought I was going to like her because she seemed like a cool, nerdy scientist type girl, but once she got in the house she's been acting like a total hoebag. I loved what Annie said about her when Julie was interviewing her on Thursday.

We hated Jessie too....I couldn't even stand to look at his website to see why he was going to be in Biloxi....the name of his site is Mr. Pec-tacular. Barf.

I started making my plea to DH about Chicago. He hasn't given me a definite answer, but he did say that if I want to go to Chicago, we won't be able to go to Milwaukee for Labor Day. I'm totally OK with that! I'd much rather going to Chicago for the weekend with my friend! Cross your fingers for me!
