My life is most definitely a wild and interesting journey.  Once again, I had to call off work today.  My supervisor must be off because she never called back.  It seems I'm off more than I'm there lately.

Megan had an appt. with her one of her docs today in Pittsburgh.  She was supposed to pick me up at work around 11 this morning and then drop me off afterwards.  The rain is just awful.  The roads are just full of water and hydroplaning is causing tons of accidents.  The route that we have to take to Pittsburgh is particularly treacherous with hydroplaning.  I just could not be at peace with her driving over an hour in these conditions.  I'm far more experienced with this type of driving than she is.  My "babies" will always have top priority.

Well, how about AI last night?  I figured Elliott would go but really I do love his style.  What a close race, though.  How many others here had problems getting calls through Tues night.

I also watched my other addiction...America's Top Model.  I never watch it week to week but watched the marathon on VH-1 until 11:00 Saturday night and then I always watch the finale.  Megan and I were glued to the tv Saturday.  Tyra Banks is just so gorgeous.  Love that show.  One of the finalists was from Pittsburgh.  She didn't win but I really liked both finalists this time.

Joey has an interview at our local cable company for a very good job as a line installer trainee this afternoon.  Please all keep him in your prayers.  He is so shy and interviews are so very hard for him.

Have a great one everybody!  Thinking sun here but it doesn't look like the rain is going to stop until Sunday....grrrr

I don't blame you hun, I never liked driving in bad weather and I would be worried sick if my kids were old enough to drive and had to drive in bad weather. Although Elliot wasn't ever one of my favorites, I was sad to see him go...for me it's always sad when they get voted off. I will keep Joey in my prayers! :-)

If you're still sick it's just as well you don't go in to work and "share" it.  Good luck with Joey's job potential....if he really wants it he'll do fine in the interview!

Hi Chris! It is si nice to be back reading your journal.  I wish more than anything we could get some rain over here, It is just so hot and yucky.  But from what I have heard on the news it is enough allready haha!  Im sure youre son will do great on his interview, perhaps a practice one with you may help.

That job would be great for your son.  I'll keep him in my prayers.  I've been in Pittsburg.  I don't blame you for not wanting your daughter to drive.

Hi Chris...we have had hail here today and more and more rain. I don`t blame you for not wanting Megan to drive all that way. I had to miss Idol last night, or at least most of it cuz I let Corey watch Lost. I made sure I saw the end, though. I wanted to see who went. I do  like Elliott, but never figured he`d win. I couldn`t get thru to vote for Taylor on Tuesday at all!! I do watch America`s Top Model... I sort of channel surf around it.  That would be great if Joey gets that job. I will send a pray his way!
Love ya,
Penny

I hope Joey gets the job, I'll be praying. Hope things went good at the doctors. I was hoping Taylor or Kat would have gone home. Since Chris is gone, I didn't watch it this week.
