well my my my, we are currently in a tornado warning here in lincoln! i am not abiding by the safety recommendations on the local news channel. mostly because i live in a really really old house that has been converted into 4 apartments and the basement entrance is outside the house and is *super* creepy. i hate basements for the most part anyway, let alone creepy ones. and since the entrance is outside there is no telling if perhaps someone may forget to lock the door and then who knows who could be down there...and if the electricity went out that is the last place on earth i would want to be!! and also because it would require wrangling all of my animals and getting them to the basement which would not be fun at all, and perhaps not even possible! we would all blow away before i could get the job done!

i just heard about a boyscout camp in iowa that was hit by a tornado and there were 4 boyscouts killed and over 30 sad.

edgar stayed at my brother and sister-in-law's house while i was in colorado for a few days. ami did a little photo shoot with edgar and bailey and surprised me with framed prints of edgar for my birthday. they are great! they are hanging in my office now and make me smile.

i am a big baby about my is one of my favorite days of the year! this year though my parents are in alaska celebrating their 40th anniversary (which happens to be the same day as my birthday), and it seems everyone else is doing something else...i'm moping about it. which is stupid i know because i'm going camping in two weeks to celebrate my birthday and edgar's birthday. i'm very excited about that...although with all of the rain and storms we have had lately i do sincerely hope it doesn't rain!

it is always strange when my parents are out of town...nearly 13 times a day i think of something i want to tell them or ask them, but they aren't home. i don't like it!
