Summer is calming down now for us. The only thing we have left is Graduation and moving DD in August. No idea where she is going, no idea if she will be employed. I am thinking we shove it all in storage then move her later.

We have gotten lots of rain this week......over 10 inches so far since Sunday, got about 5 inches last week. Grass is growing, growing, growing.

I think between 3-4 hours. I'm thinking it is near Dothan and that's a little over 2 hours to Tallahassee and we're a little over a hour from Tallahassee.

It's so hard now, they get the degree but there are only so many jobs out there. I'm so hoping that our country will start to economically improve.

Does she have an idea what she wants to look for work wise? Was it teaching? I can't remember.

We have had tons of it too. I think it may have finally cleared off the coast. We have sun this morning. It is the first in at least a week I think.

Measurement wise I don't know what we have had but it has been a bunch. Hard downpours on and off every day.

I just took a look at the map it looks like Andalusia is probably an hour and a half west of Dothan.

Kyle is down there now and will be til the end of the month. On Sunday it will be two weeks he has been there. He said it is a very small redneck town. The people come to work in shirts with cutoff sleeves and shorts with boots. The vision I get when thinking of it is Larry the Cable Guy!

He is training the people in the new call center his company contracted out to.

My boss and I were talking about this yesterday. The sad thing is a lot of these kids come out of it with a ton of debt too from school loans. Can't get a job and can't get themselves out of it.

her degree is in social sciences, its a Bachelor of arts and science. She had 3 years of education to be a teacher and changed her mind. She can work in HR departments for companies.

heard on the news that student loan interest rates are about to double. We paid for her degree but her masters is on her own dime. We only saved enough for undergrad school. Atleast she is debt free so far.

DH was supposed to work half a day today to get caught up but he is still in bed. He turned off his alarm. LOL I have steaks and potato salad and corn on the cobb for dinner. made some watermelon pico de gallo but I don't like it. Tried eating it yesterday but I wish I would have saute the peppers and onion first. Not a fan of raw peppers

Sounds like a typical redneck town in LA (lower Alabama)

Hope everyone had a happy and safe 4th celebration. We did nothing. I grilled steaks , made corn on the cob and potato salad. Then we went to the gas station and bought a gallon of ice cream LOL. We rented Argo on demand and watched it. The kids were gone so it was just us. We were invited to a party but DH had a headache early in the day and was afraid drinking would make it come back.

It is kind of a dirty trick having a holiday mid week and having to go to work the next day.

We didn't do anything either.

I cut grass, first chance I have had because of rain in two weeks.

Cooked hotdogs on the grill and that was about it.

I actually kind of liked it this year!

My work closed yesterday, we get a four day weekend.

It is nice for a change to have extra time off and not worry about missing work.

Although it seemed quite odd yesterday the neighborhood was quiet. I guess most everyone else had to work.

It was kind of funny because it seems my neighbors all get days off and I am the only one leaving to go to work. Yesterday it was the opposite.

After having such a beautiful weekend it looks like we are in for hit and miss rain this week and possibly contending with the new tropical storm by the weekend.

Wow JoAnn that is a bunch.

We were kind of like that for a while, it has finally slacked up some now.
