Happy Birthday to my SH

Yesterday was SH's birthday....today he is spending the day at his favorite huge flea market shopping for gifts for himself. I would much rather him pick out the rusty stuff he wants than us trying to buy stuff for him. I did get him some new fishing stuff in case his little old women left him alone long enough to let him ever go fishing. Just between you and me.....don't tell anyone else.....superhubby starts a weeks vacation today. That can not go farther than between us because if certain older women find out......there will be hell to pay. There will be days of tree trimming, garage cleaning, new outlet putting in and house pressure washing.... he needs a freaking break people. Umm, excuse me if I yelled that in your ear.
The weather is definitely summer weather here now. It has been in the 90's for days and the pool is finally warm enough to swim in. The frogs love it so we spend a lot of time chasing them out. The cicada's are going crazy. When you walk outside now they swarm around you...my cousin got attacked by about 200 yesterday while he was mowing and they knocked his safety glasses off of his face. They don't bite they just land on you and make this horrible noise that sounds like they are screaming in pain....and when a couple of hundred get around (or on) you and start that it gets a little weird.
We have had a bunch of bad storms this week, one of which I got stuck in and it was the worst storm I have ever been in. I pulled into a strangers driveway and the wind was pushing my Ford Explorer sideways. SH was in a different car ahead of me and didn't see me pull over so he tried to go on but got trapped by falling trees. When we finally got away from the trees we were stuck by flood water. It took us 2 hours to make a normally 30 minute trip home. I would have been ok if our cell phones didn't all go out....and DD was home alone. She was pretty scared but made it through the storms ok. Most of my family have spent the last week in N.C. at the beach and they were calling here because they saw on the news that we had some horrible storms and so did the Washington D.C. area, which is where some of my other family live that were at the beach. It's been 3 days and we still have to go way out of our way to go places because of the flood water.
I hope everyone has a great weekend!
