♥ Shabby Team Room DT Call Reminder! ♥

Well, as you can see, we survived the Hurricane! Sunday morning as we woke up, it was still a little windy out and rain here and there. But we had power! Just some branches and leaves everywhere, but we had power!! We felt so lucky and happy! So off we went outside to clean up the yard and pool. My sister and brother-in-law was here for my son's 1st Birthday, so they even helped us clean up. (Thank you Stacey and Tim!) As soon as we were done cleaning up, guess what happened next?!! Yup! Our power went out for almost 3 days! Lost all our food in both refrigerators. But I know we are still one of the lucky ones! Some people will be without power until next week! But we are all alive and healthy! So we are truly blessed and lucky! Thank you to you all for all your well wishes and prayers!

Doesn't that just figure! Glad that you came through it in good shape, other than the electric that is!

Hugs to you. Hurricanes are definitely no fun and quite an expense! Have had major practice with those. So glad that the damage wasn't too bad. Hang in there.
