Wasn't as bad as they said it would be here. I think everyone is still freaked out by that Dereicho we had. Everytime there is a high possiblility of winds people freak out. My mom-in-law was over there screaming her head off in front of the little boy which is horrible. So he and I went and watched a movie and cuddled. He is so cute. My husband weighs 350 pounds and is all muscle mostly. He is very strong and I have seen him lift a shed and he lifted a car. He used to weight lift in competitions and won I think it was 2 or 3 in the state at 16 years old he is 29 and still hasn't lost any strength. I'm fat (249) and he can throw me. Anyway, he has a 5 year old brother who is now eating things like meat and potatoes because he said he has to be big and strong like his brother. He asked Jeff once if he was Hercules because he looks like him. lol

Things are improving today. We are going to get the parts to fix my van and my psychiatrist upped my dosage yesterday (haha) so I am doing a little better. Me and Jeff made up too. So today the plan is to force myself out into the storms and go shopping! Petsmart and walmart in particular. I get my new pleco tomorrow so I have to get him some yummy's to eat until his tank establishes some decent algae. I am going to keep him on a variety though to keep him healthy since his tank isn't going to be to small. I am doing a bare bottom so he will have an extra place for algae so it should work out okay for temporary housing.

I need to think of a good name for this pleco. Since he is an "armored catfish" maybe a general? a tank?

I'm glad to hear everyone is safe and damage is minimal.

My grandparents ride their bikes every morning on the sidewalk along a busy road... And this car was driving fairly fast, and the tire came off! It kept rolling and rolled straight at my grandparents! Somehow they managed to swerve and not get hit, but if they had I'm sure it wouldve severely injured them.

I got him his food today. I got him some agae wafers and some shrimp pellets. I am going to get his heater and filter and aeration going tonight. This way its all clean and toasty when he gets here. Geez, ever since I gave wanda bbs she has been looking in between the rocks to find them. You ate them all!

Jeff is outside working on the van right now. I hope he gets it fixed. He felt so bad about yeterday he bought me a tablet. :D
