Just checking in

Hello everyone!

We are ok!  We do not have power at home (today is day 3...and it could take a week to 2 weeks before it is back).  I am at work today, and we JUST got our phones and internet back.

The kids' had a good birthday, despite the weather.  Our house is ok...no damage.  Some debris in the yard, but that is to be expected.

Unfortunately, 3 days of no power = all our food is gone.  We lost everything in the fridge and both freezers.  We tried...but couldn't get ice.  And it thawed.  Our homeowner's insurance would cover it, but with the deductible, it isn't worth it.

The school doesn't have power...so the kids "may" not start school until next week.

And...my muffler almost fell off my car.

I am not working tomorrow...but hopefully I will check in again soon!!!


  1. Glad your house and you are all o.k! It's frustrating to lose all your food. My hubby and/or my kids have left the door open accidentally (in 90 degree weather!!!) in the past and we've had to refill the freezer several times.

    Except for the money part of it, I like the fact that I can "organize" it without a lot of trouble, lol!

  2. It is good to know you are alright. The rest will work out!

  3. I am glad you and your family are ok, I was worried about all of you. Food can be replaced.


  4. Glad there is no damage to the house.

    Sorry about your food, that blows.

  5. Glad that you & your family are safe!! That's all that matters in the end!

  6. Glad that you and your family are okay. I am sure your kiddos will remember this birthday for years to come. Sorry about the other stuff though.

  7. Too bad about the freezer, I am glad you are okay? Do you need some jam?

  8. Mysti - whew! So glad to hear that. Be glad it was just food and not something more serious.

    @ Kim - I'd like to some jam! LOL!

  9. I am so glad your family is safe. I hope you get power soon...do you have enough flashlights and candles? How is Bossy handling all the chaos? Hope you hear from you soon!
