This has been the l o n g e s t week... at least we get a long weekend out of it! That is, of course, if we're not dealing with Gustav or preparing for Hanna. At this moment in time, Gustav should miss us by a fairly wide margin, but Hanna is still a great big question mark.
Am I running right out to get a generator? No.
I may buy a few more umbrellas and flashlights and a couple of bags of ice for the freezer, but having just weathered 3 1/2 days of no power, I think we can handle another storm. As long as no more trees come down. As long as we have places to bail to if we need to. And friends with working coffee pots.
This weekend I will be doing laundry, cleaning carpets, and if I feel really ambitious, finishing the wallpaper removal and beginning the priming of the master bathroom. We've been down to one shower for way too long - and the toilet in there definitely needs replacing. It's about time I got around to it.
