Exciting News & Other News

I've been just full of great news lately. I hate to be such a tease, but I may be having a BIG announcement soon having to do with a certain local magazine. I don't want to say anything until it's official, so I will leave you with that.

Just one more example of how crazy our life is. Yesterday my husband had a talk at our meeting. (religious) He was on his way home when he got a phone call from the alarm company that his alarm at work had gone off. He had to exit and go back to work, only to find out that it was caused by the crazy gusts of wind that we had yesterday.

When he finished there he started back home, already running late, and he found that a tree in front of our house, but outside our fence, had broken in the wind. The branches had fallen over and across the electricity lines that went to our neighbor's house. It had literaly ripped the box off the side of her house. She was very upset and Rey felt really bad for her. He talked to the guys that were out turning off her electricity and he told them that he'd called the city about that tree already.

He took the time to find a long extension cord for our neighbor and he ran it from our garage to her house. He also let her borrow an extra strip, a lamp, and an electric heater. He barely had time to shower, shave, and get dressed.

Of course we were a little late to our meeting, but on time for his talk, but it was worth it knowing our neighbor was taken care of.

So that's the kind of stuff that always seems to "challenge"us. But we always get around them!
