I think growing up in tornado alley just made my fear of tornadoes worse. Ever since I was about 8, I have recurring nightmares about tornadoes. Seriously. When I was a kid, I'd dream that my brother and I were playing in the yard and a tornado would touch down across the street. When I started driving, the dream changed to me being in a car trying to drive very quick-like to get away from it. To top all that off, the night of my junior prom we hid in the bathrooms while tornado sirens were blaring. After they stopped [and it was still storming out] I drove like a bat out of hell trying to get home. That doesn't make those dreams go away. Oh, no. It makes them worse. *sigh*
So now, here I sit in my living room alone with the dog freaking out at the tiniest spark of lightning or clap of thunder. Why? Because a tornado warning was issued for my county. =( I'm tracking the storm online, thanks to one of the local station's websites and it's still about 10 miles away. I think. I haven't lived here long enough to really know. I probably shouldn't be freaking out, but I am. Most likely because my husband is in the barracks and I'm here alone.
Other than tonight, the weekend has been fairly good. I felt like crap yesterday. My throat was sore and I was just extremely tired. I didn't put any make up on yesterday, and didn't even attempt to cook for my hubby until this evening. He was sweet and put up with my clingy, whiny self. =) I'm probably an annoying sick person. I like to be taken care of when I'm sick. So, I may complain a bit more than is actually necessary. Please tell me I'm not the only one who does this! God bless my hubby for putting up with me. =) I
Here's hoping that things get straightened out with Joe's orders and I can travel with him to Hawaii! That will make this next week so much better! Hope y'all have a great week!
