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.

Wow … seems like you’ve had more than your share of issues to deal with recently. I hope Hanna (and Gustav) give you wide berth so that you can get yourselves squared away again.
Hugs and blessings,

Yeah, Hannah...I have a feeling she won't amount to much given what the weather guy had to say tonight. But who knows!?!

Argh...I need to remove wallpaper in my kitchen and get my bathroom ready to paint. I keep putting it off until the weather gets cooler. Truth is, I'm just being really lazy, but I know I have to get on it soon. I have what my sister calls a "ghetto bathroom" with peeling paint and chunks out of the walls. Send me some of you energy!

When you finish you're welcome to come here and do my kitchen walls!

It's odd seeing hurricanes on either side of Florida right now. Gives me the willies.
