HOUSTON! WE HAVE A PROBLEM! His name is Ike....
So we decided to get outta the Houston area today. Hurricane Ike decided to take a little turn and head for a visit to our house. Durn unwelcome guests!!! They have not said there is an evacuation for our zip code but we don't want to take chances of getting stuck without electricity with the kiddos. Our house has been known to lose electricity with a heavy breeze blowing. Soooo... OFF TO GRANDMAS!
Here is an interesting tidbit! Today they DID evacuate the area where Kaiya was supposed to have her surgery this morning. She was going to be at the Children's Hospital in Galveston. YIKES! It turns out that we would have had surgery CANCELLED and then been stuck with tons of traffic. As it is we are already at Polka Dot's house chilling out. Polka Dot is hanging out with Kaitlyn and Zoe. They get to make cupcakes and watch Miley Cyrus! Mommy and Daddy get to hang out after Daddy works remotely for awhile. His office is closed till Monday due to the storm as are all the schools.
I am excited to finish watching the HBO series John Adams with Russ on DVD tonight. It's a very cool series about the beginnings of The United States of America... LOVING IT! I always love entertainment that actually teaches me something.
ANYWAY! I am SOOOOOO thankful to be here and not in a hospital room or being evacuated from a hospital. I pray this storm blows over with no major disaster. We are so blessed to just be able to zoom off to grandma's for a wonderful weekend. There are so many people who don't have that option. Still they are blessed to even have storm shelters in this country. I can't imagine what it feels like to be in a place where you have no options and there is no where to go and no one to help. I am thankful that tonight my family will be safe,fed and unafraid. That is the good life.
