I don't trust the media. They've cried "WOLF!" so many times, that I tend to ignore most talk of "emergencies", so I wasn't too concerned about Frankenstorm Sandy. It was my friends' Facebook posts yesterday that finally got me concerned. When Jim got home last night I was in full freak out mode, gathering batteries, filling containers of water and ice, and searching for firewood. The one thing "WE" didn't do? Secure the trampoline.
This morning when I looked outside to see if there were any tree limbs in the yard, I noticed something was missing right away - our trampoline!! To make a long story short, we got extremely lucky and it was stopped just feet away from our neighbor's house by a tree. I went out in the pouring rain and somehow managed to roll the dumb thing from their yard back into ours and secure it to our tree. It's ruined, but I still feel pretty lucky.
Anyway, back to our regularly scheduled programming... Jenn's Time Warp Tuesday! If you get a chance, head over there and check out the other participants and leave them some comment love.
Since my sweet boy is turning SIX(?!?) in three weeks, I wanted to show this photo...
After two of the longest years of my life, "trying" to get pregnant, it had finally happened. When we went to my parent's house for Easter, we were taking pictures and asked both sets of parents to get together for a shot. Jim stood off to the side, and I was taking the shot. I think I said, "Say Cheese! No, that one wasn't good. This time... say... "Jen's Pregnant!!" Then I snapped this shot. Jim's mom was asking Jim, "Is she serious?" My mom was looking at Jim to see his reaction. My dad was in disbelief... or shock. Jim's dad seemed to be the only one who immediately got it.
It is a moment I'll never forget, and I'm so glad I have this picture!
