Hurricane Isaac

Day 241 of 365- August 28th Hurricane Isaac began making its way to the coast of Louisiana this evening, with a lot of rain & wind forecast for the area.  We have dealt with hurricanes and tropical storms before during our time in Houston and this definitely brought back those memories.   The stress of not knowing exactly where it will hit and how bad it will really be is hard, especially when they are forecasting 24 inches of rain for your area. We spent the day preparing for the the storm, moving patio furniture in, stocking up on food, etc…  Sumner woke up with an earache (he...

Allergy Testing

Day 240 of 365- August 27th We headed to the allergist this morning for Caleb’s allergy testing.  He handled it like a pro, never once complaining!  He reacted to everything they tested him for, except for pecans.  Poor thing had some severe reactions to cashews, peanuts, and dogs with serious reactions to all the weeds they checked him for along with other tree nuts and indoor allergens.   He was relieved when it was over but quickly forgot about how uncomfortable he was when we headed to check out at the nurses station… Quote of the Day: The nurse offered Caleb a...

How Quickly Things Change

Day 239 of 365- August 26th As we walked around New Orleans yesterday, a hurricane hitting the area was the last thing on anyone’s mind!  How quickly things can change!  Yesterday had the track of Isaac tracing the West coast of Florida.  Today, we are in the line of the storm.  This is definitely something that we had not missed when we were up North for 3.5 years.  Preparations are underway.  We will be hunkering down and waiting it...

Day Trip to New Orleans

Day 238 of 365- August 25th We drove to New Orleans on Saturday morning, but not before having a wild life rescue in our driveway!  As we were heading out we saw an injured baby duck.  We decided to scoop him up and take him to the lake in the neighborhood, hoping to find his parents.  The duckling didn’t like Adam touching him, so it was good that Adam had taken some precaution before hand!  Once we got him to the lake he was still mad, trying to bite Adam yet again.  We never saw another duck,  but as soon as the duckling saw the water he made his way to it and swam away. Love...

Around the House- The Kitchen

Day 237 of 365- August 24th We put the contract on this house just a few days before the final selections & colors were going to be ordered.  We were fortunate because they were planning on an orange/black/grey theme in the kitchen.  It was horrible!  We changed everything, making sure to keep it neutral for resale.  We love how it turned out and by the time things were completed, the builder & installers came around to our selections as...
