1999 Meridian
The other night ( 6-17-06) Rich opened up a bottle of 1999 Meridian Cab that we had on the wine rack, and O MY GOD it was the BEST I have had, since the 1999 Rutherford we had with Kim back in Lemoore. the wine was what 7 years OLD. o man it was so good. I did a little research and the wine got press in all these papers. 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon, California

I have spent the past few days, off from the second job and with nothing to do on my day off on Friday and Saturday. Mianna is in SD and it feels like I've lost my purse and this emptiness that is so hard to fill. I was so so board out of my mind and depressed the day she left that all I did was sleep. I couldn't even get happy windows shopping on the Mac .LOL. I still feel the same today and it's Fathers Day. My hubby is out BBQing and then we will be going over to some friends house for a gathering. I've been so depressed the past few days, I thinks it's because Mianna is gone and I'm not finding things to fulfill the void. I have been on-call at BEBE so much more than I actually work and that kind of stinks. I think I'll charge my camera battery and take plenty of pictures today. The weather outside is overcast and gray so that is how I feel today. I think we need to take a vacation and go some place fun.

ER room this morning

I got up this morning and started to get ready for work as usual when I found Rich in pain. He said he came home from work late last night and just started to have chest pains and then they started to get worst. He stayed up all night with the pain and it took me all morning to convince him to go in to the ER. The Dr did and EKG and chest x-rays and blood work twice. They found nothing wrong except one enzyme that was slightly elevated. They gave him some pain killers and told him to follow up with his Dr tomorrow. I called in to both jobs and got off since I had to take him in and just wouldn't feel comfortable leaving him, incase he had the pain again. This is about the 3 or 4th time he has had this similar pain and no one can really tell us what is going on. The Dr said it was some type of fluid in his cavity wall, but not in his lungs and that it just happens. I have no idea what these Dr are talking about, because they don't take the time to explain the situation well, and the nurse was actually more informative and reminded us of the Black Dr on Grays Anatomy, Dr Bailey. Rich is in bed resting since he was up for 24 hours and tomorrow we have to get up and head to the airport by 6am since Mianna leave to SD at 7:15am. My poor Richie boy scares me some times and I just hope he gets better.

2006 names

Alberto (currently a tropical strom) 6/12/06

Mianna leaves to SD

I just can't believe how long it had been seen my last blogg. I usually have no time to do this, but it looks like I'll have plenty of off time this week and with my new work hours at CRC, I'll be home by 6 every day, But it I have to run to BEBE, then not home till say 10:40 or 11pm. I'm only scheduled to work 7 hours this week, so most of the time I'm off or on call. I was oncall today and they didn't need me. Mianna is leaving for SD this Friday and she will be gone for one month. I'm already starting to get sad, but I know that she will have a fun summer and love spending time with our family in SD. I'm not sure how it's going to work out with not having her here and Duke being all alone again, he is really going to miss her bad. I suppose I should use this time that I'm home to make dinner and clean the house a little and do some laundry. It's like my work is never done, we just work work work. UHHHH. I'm so ready to stop working. Today we are having bad weather and I just heard on the weather channel on my XM radio that there is a tropical storm called Alberto in the gulf and he can develop into a hurricane and this is the first storm of the season. Here is a clip I took from
Tropical Storm Alberto, which stengthened between Sunday and Monday, is holding shy of hurricane strength. As of 4 p.m. CDT, Alberto's maximum sustained winds remained at 70 mph, 4 mph short of Category 1 hurricane strength.
Hurricane warnings were issued today for a portion of the Florida Gulf Coast. A hurricane warning means hurricane conditions may occur in the next 24 hours. The warning area covers the Gulf Coast from Longboat Key to the Ochlockonee River. A tropical storm warning has been extended northward to the Savannah River on the Atlantic Coast.

There is a slight chance that Alberto could reach minimal hurricane strength before making landfall around Taylor County, Florida by early Tuesday, but the storm seemed to weaken a bit on Monday afternoon.

Locally heavy rains may induce some scattered flooding but the general area has been very dry lately. Many locales will pick up 4 to 8 inches of rain with isolated 10-inch amounts possible. A storm surge of 8 to 10 feet above normal tide levels can be expected in the warned area which extends from Longboat Key to the Ochlockonee River. Isolated tornadoes are always possible with landfalling tropical systems.

The Season Ahead

Experts say the 2006 season could be another very active one. The latest forecast from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) calls for 13-16 total storms, 8-10 hurricanes, and 4-6 major hurricanes (Category 3 or higher).
