The sounds of tornado sirens and the freaking out of DramaQueen over said sirens woke us up at 4am this morning. Groggily, we all trooped downstairs to the living room and watched the storm alerts to see if we needed to head to the basement. Luckily, all we experienced were some strong winds and the warnings expired at 5:15am. 4 out of 5 of us (HH being the 1) went back to bed for another hour. The DramaQueen has also been home from school the past two days due to a very sore throat, upset stomach, headache and slight fever. She thinks she will be ok to go back to school tomorrow – she has to, it’s her birthday and she can’t miss that.
