Hurricane Erin

Things are starting to get back to normal this week. But last week? It is definitely going to take some time to recover.

The week consisted of Erin and I running around to help out with the preparations for the services. I spent a lot of time in the car, and a lot of money on gas.

At times, we were at each other's throats. But there were a few moments that made us laugh out loud.

She texted something to one of her friends at home and the friend wrote back, (y) yeah!

When she showed it to me, I said "Ass yeah?"

Well, that got us into a giggle fit and when she texted her friend to find out what it meant, they said it was suppose to be a thumbs up. That made us laugh even harder. So from now on Erin and my favorite saying is "ASS YEAH!!" We said it for everything!

On Thursday, Erin was feeling a little helpless so she offered to make Dad some oxtail soup. (basically a beef barley soup) I took her to the store and dropped her off at Dad's to start the soup while I ran some errands. When I got back, Erin realized that she wasn't going to be able to finish the soup because it actually has to be refrigerated overnight and she wasn't going to be back on Friday except for the wake.

So, on Friday morning after I picked up Uncle Jim, I had to go over to dad's and finish the soup.

On the way over there, I called her and yelled "Next time you volunteer to make soup, I'M GONNA PUNCH YOU IN THE NOSE!!!!"

Then we laughed really hard.

Ass yeah? Sorry, I'm not sure how (y) is a thumbs up. But then I'm not into the texting thing. I have no one to text anyway, lol.

Hope your dad enjoyed Erin's oxtail soup.

I'll have to ask my son, who is the expert texter in our family, if he knows that (y) symbol. Oxtail soup sounds delicious; my mom used to make something she called oxtail soup years ago and that did taste good

I'm sure it will take some time to recover from things; I hope your dad is doing as good as he can

hugs to you all
