Since all the weathermen said we were to have extremely cold/bitter temps last night and today, I did all my duties to keep the house going. I let 3 faucets drip, I put a furry, heavy blanket in the 'kids' (cats) room, I closed all the drapes to hold in heat, and turned on the electric blanket! We were toasty, nothing frozen, and the house seems warm this morning at 10 degrees.
We did not go to church last night. It is so hard for Jim (and me too really) to get from the parking lot to the door of the church, we decided it was best for us not to try it. I could have let him out at the door and then found a parking spot, but again, it isn't easy for me to walk very far either.
Today I will change the beds, begin taking the 2014 files out of the folders and store away, so that I can put all in for 2015. That is a full time job in itself, but must be done.
Stacy, my son's wife, came home early from a job conference in Knoxville, TN, because she was so sick. She got to a doctor and she has severe bronchitis, got a steroid shot, Z-Pak, and 2 types of cough syrup. Murphy said it was all she could do to get from the car into the house and went straight to bed. I haven't had report yet this morning but am praying she is some better, and at least it wasn't the flu that is running rampant in Chattanooga and the State of Tennessee. We are #1 in both areas.
I did manage to go to the pharmacy and grocery store yesterday morning, so we are set for at least a week before we start running out of the usual.
No more news from the cold south, so I will leave you with - GOD BLESS US EVERYONE!
