Day 5 of no power

School was SUPPOSED to start got postponed until next Tuesday.  No idea when we are getting our power back at home...word on the street is 2 weeks! 

We are having to grocery shop almost on a daily basis....

I am being pulled in 46 directions....I am stressed to the hilt, and no time to be stressed. 

I had to take Bossy to therapy, and asked them if I could use their computer so I could pay bills!

I have absolutely no idea how much money we have spent.  I barely know what I have in our checking account.

I have no idea what is going on with all of you....I hope you all are ok.


  1. Oh my! I don't know what I would do without power for that long.

  2. My house never lost power, my parents lost power for 36 hours...and my office power just got turned on yesterday after 3 days of no power!

    It may be worth it to check out the public library for internet access.


  3. I have internet here at work...and limited internet on my phone.

    I think tonight I will take the kids to the shelter and let them have a real shower...vs the sponge bath they have had for 5 days.

  4. Oh hurricanes... we had Rita and Ike down here so I know your pain. Hang in there! things will be back to normal before you know it!


  5. We went through something similar during the Northridge earthquake. We had no damage, but no power or water for days. These kind of situations make you realize that you can only control so much. Things will get better.

  6. We were without power for 4 days. We got it back yesterday but still have a low hanging electrical line to the house which has to be fixed. I told my wife that this will be our last storm without a generator. The amount of food we had to throw away would have paid for more than half of generator.

  7. So worried for you...I know I would be super stressed about everything and not knowing where the money is going or coming from too. Try to giggle about something everyday to break the tension and know I am sending lots of love your way...
