Butt dragging…but first…

You have heard me talk about Allan before. He’s from Long Island NY and … well here, read his post…


Material things are all gone. House, 2 cars, all my clothes and possessions. Vanished into the storm. Feels cathartic, nowhere to go but up. FORWARD...
Thanks for the love, all is well health wise, puppies are great, wife is safe, at Mother in laws until we make a plan...

Can you imagine? I can’t…I can’t even begin to imagine losing everything that was mine. We dealt with flooding this summer and it was bad here. My parents lost years of things from their basement. We spent hundreds of dollars putting it back together just to have it flood once again but it’s good now but they still have their house, the belongs we could save and what wasn’t drenched. But I can’t imagine losing it all. Please just keep praying for everyone out there.

These are me. I have not had a day off in three weeks. No complaints but over tired.

Today was my first day off and I had a craft show with my best friend/business partner. We didn’t do to bad and were able to make a bunch of people happy.


Brenda and I. Phone cameras aren’t the greatest but they do help us document our adventures.

Now is the time to relax and enjoy the rest of the weekend except there is at least a ton of coal that has to be shoveled tomorrow after we go shopping for the week but hopefully it’ll go fast and then we can just relax a bit.

Next week I start my new cleaning job. It’s a 5 hour 2x a month job and I’m hoping to fit it in between bus routes. I have Joss (daycare wee one) on Wednesday between runs and am planning on hitting the gym 3 times and possible a 4th next Saturday. No activities as of today but will find out on Monday for sure for the week.

Just wanted to check in. Hope that all is well with everyone. I try and stop in and check up on you, I don’t always leave a comment but do know I’m around and thinking and praying for you all. Take care my friends. Blessings!!

P.S. Because I keep forgetting to tell you. My sister has made it two weeks now out of the hospital. She has some major health issues and her physically well being is so bad but she’s hanging in there. My aunt is getting stronger and do well after her heart attack. My grandma heads home from Florida on Monday, I still think it’s amazing at 95 she gets on a plane and goes visit family. Just an update here.

Thanks for checking up on my Julie. I appreciate it, you being so busy. I am not doing too well with the eating well thing. My focus is all on wedding plans and I can tell it's messing me up. But I'm hoping will get better.
I hope you are doing well and take care of yourself.

Breathe lady! Lol. "Make hay while the sun shines" and don't work yourself to death! I'd cry...a lot!

You look great in that picture!!
I too have several friends that have lost everything, it's heartbreaking and now we are due for another storm to hit this week. My heart goes out to so many right now...
Hope you have a good week.
