Life gets in the way

It’s been a while since I posted anything. Life has been busy. My mother-in-law got sick the first of May. She had the flu, but quit taking care of herself because she didn’t feel good and ended up in the hospital with pneumonia. She has bad lungs and has been on oxygen for years and had a lot of trouble getting well. We almost lost her and she was on a ventilator for a few days. She has finally bounced back and is currently in the nursing home getting stronger. The over all hospital stay was about 7 weeks and had me there almost every night after work. Did nothing for me getting anything done at home. She was out of the hospital for about 1 1/2 weeks when I left for a trip to England with my mother and sisters courtesy of my mom. We went to visit my cousin that married a Brit and is enjoying living in England. She pretty much planned our trip asking us what we wanted to see and she and her husband and a friend took us around. We in no way had enough time and some things we saw we went through faster than we would of liked. We would all love to go back. As soon as I get some pictures ready I’ll post some of what we saw.

Monday morning after getting back we had a huge wind storm go through. We were one of the areas hit hard. The whole town had trees down. Our house came out with just a few smaller branches done and a broken window. My soon also got a broken windshield out of the storm. My mother-in-law had big limbs come out of 2 trees – one of which took her power off her house. Her neighbors tree lost about a third of their tree into her back yard and it squashed a shed. The shed was slated to come down any way, but we’ll turn it into insurance and hopefully we come take care of some of the deductible so there won’t be as much out of pocket expense. The corn fields were all laid flat, but have stood back up. It will still probably affect the final yield, but that won’t be known for sure until harvest.

Hoping life will settle down now. I have to get some things ready for the state fair in the next 2 weeks and so far haven’t had a chance to do anything about it.

Hope everyone’s life isn’t as hectic has mine has been lately.
