Not much exciting has been going on here in Milwaukee.  I take that back, we had a huge flood and my car is broken, due to the flooding, so that pretty much sucks.  I am also still unemployed.. which also sucks.  Chris is in New Jersey for Army Training but he'll be home on Thursday and that's a good thing.

Last week my baby sister, age 14, stayed at my house.  I planned on a more exciting week but my car was broken so we were sort of limited on where we could go.  It turned out just fine though.  There's a lot of pretty neat stuff within walking distance and I was able to take the bus to work for my last week.  Abi is just kind of a brat.  She is really snotty and obsessed with myspace, and is a total narcissist. She loves to take pictures of her self and it's annoying.  I still love her though.  Back to walking though- Most important to me is being able to walk to the grocery store.  I am totally out of food and I have three more days with no transportation!  Luckily I spent the weekend away from home..

I had a really good weekend.  I got an IUD on friday and it was really painful and I'm sure no one wants to hear about it but lets just say the vicodin I took did nothing.  So, I laid around all day friday and thought I was dieing.  Luckily, I woke up on Saturday.  We did a lot of Geocaching on Saturday and today.  It is one of my new hobbies.  I totally love doing it.  You get to see so many parks and cool places you never new existed!  Sunday was father's day so we had a nice cook out.  I bought my dad a Hatchet. 
The hatchet has a sort of funny story.. I went to buy it right after work on thursday and not thinking of how large it was going to be I only brought my little tiny puma backpack.. bad idea.  It just barely fit inside.  Then I had to go to the bank so I go in with a fricken hatchet in my bag, I was so nervous!  And then getting on the bus!  Luckily all went well.

Tomorrow I want to get some stuff done, we'll see if I actually do.  Here are some pictures of the flood-
  This road is a Boulevard and these are my front steps.

  It was pretty high here, probably at about it's highest.

Some people decided to take advantage of the weather-  At this point the water was actually going down.  That white car was actually lifted from the water and then smashed into the tree!

These are my neighbors and me at the end with the coat on looking like an idiot!

No life lessons for tonight.. maybe tomorrow?

you live on humboldt, don't you?! I remember seeing that white car up against the tree the day after that huge huge storm! i live so very close (and am also practically unemployed...) let me know if you ever want to hang out. i'm lame and don't have many friends around here... -tasha-

Yes indeed, I do live on Humboldt. You should totally come on over for dinner, pretty much whenever you want. I am no gourmet chef but I love having people over! Just let me know when you are free. This Thursday Chris comes home, so that probably wouldn't be a good day but after that I am freeee!

haha, going into the bank with a hatchet... scary and hilarious

i love geocaching too! i've only done local ones but it is pretty cool. i found out about caching when bobby found one in ridge run without a GPS. it was inside a hollowed out log and we were so confused what it was.

those pictures are amazing! i was in arizona so i'm not sure what west bend was looking like, but i guarantee it was nothing like that. it looks like it was pretty close to your house, did you have any damage (minus your car). crazy weather.

That would be crazy to find one without knowing about it.. some of them are large like an ammo box!

Yes it was very close, right at my front steps! Luckily not much else got damaged. We had a little flooding in the basement and some of my landlady's art (she was an art major) get pretty wet but nothing too serious!

exactly! bobby was like wtf, mate? and geoff approached it as if it was a bomb. it was pretty amusing once they opened it and saw woolly willies, bouncy balls, rocks, and reading material instead. :)

glad to here no bad house damage.

that shits nuts. fond du lac got slammed even harder, i ended up stranded coming home from work and had to sleep in my car that night until the flooding went down.

also, six flags sometime soon?

Wow! I am glad your car and you are safe. Any damage to the house? Six flags anytime you want.. I just don't have transportation :)

we didnt get too much damage, our basement took in like 4 inches of water, some crap got wrecked but it was mostly carmen's anyways. my matress got wet and we're still working on trying to salvage that.. hopefully we still can. i'll let you know when i got a free day, probably not this weekend, but maybe the coming one?

18th-Jun-2008 04:48 am (UTC)
