Like many of you, Larry & I have spent much of our evening watching the news reports on Fox & CNN & all the local stations as well as the weather channel. As you know, our eastern side of Texas is in trouble. We've got Ike hurdling toward us & we're just hoping for the best.
Today we went to buy bottled water, lots of canned foods, some batteries, a little battery-powered weather band radio & a 12-pack of soda. ha ha!
We went to the library this afternoon & got some books to power-outage entertainment. We got the kids a few movies for stuck-inside-during-the-rain entertainment.
We're far enough north of the coast that people are coming HERE for shelter from the storm, so we're just hunkering down & riding it out now.
I am a little nervous for Andrew & Kourtney's family, though. They live down in south Texas, near the area that was evacuated. I'm not sure if they were evacuated or not, but when I called today to check on them, there was no answer at their house. Please pray for their safety during this storm!
I've got my camera batteries all charged up & ready to go. Hopefully there won't be much of anything for me to get pictures of....but in case there is, I'm ready!
And on a lighter, more fun note, today while we were in CVS picking up batteries, the kids & I were playing around in the Halloween aisle. They had political masks. I was Obama. Savannah was Hillary. Sarah was McCain & honestly, I don't know who Samuel was. It was so funny to see the kids put on those masks, so I had to join in. Larry snapped a picture w/ his phone.
And one last thing---pray that we all stay healthy! It turns out that the tummy issues I had on Wednesday were part of a virus that is going around! Another teacher at my school had it yesterday. And tonight when I picked up Samuel from his friend's birthday party, the little sister went running to the bathroom to throw up before I got out the front door. So...something's going around! yuck, yuck, yuck! Vomitting & diarrhea during a hurricane is NOT my idea of fun!
