I live in Friendswood, south of houston and north of galveston...Today is my first time to have internet.... I lost it friday at 7pm.. I dont think i could do this again.. It was the hardest thing not having any grocery stores or fresh food, or option to cool down.. I had to eat food that has torn up my stomach and the heat made me not sleep.. Last night I slept 6 hours and that was awesome (most in 4 days.. every other was 4 or less hours)... Ike came through and the eye passed right by my house.. literally it was a mile from me..It tore through our homes and neighborhoods like they were nothing.. It took out trees and caused so much destruction.. the best part was that i actually got a new roof so it held up(no leaks)... but it has been soooo stressful.. My hubby's mom and dad have no power or water so they have been living with us since friday.. and we have water but no power up until tuesday morning.. I love his parents but it is so stressful having people live with you that are in a completely different lifestyle.. I am easily stressed by clutter and disorganization and it is so disorganized and I couldn't clean for 4 days.. AHHHH. and then 4 dogs.. omgosh.. but its getting better, i have power.. i can clean and they are still hear but hopefully soon they get power.. they are telling us it might be 2 more weeks before they get power... i can't beleive it.. this storm took out my "home" i grew up in houston and galveston.. and now.. its like a bomb went off. and then there are blackhawks and jets and all sort of military type things.. and trucks feeding people in the streets.. it is the scariest thing to think this could happen to us.. there is no gas you have to wait an hour and half or more to get it.. and then on top of all of this.. my husband does not get paid unless he works and of corse with no power = no work.. I can't wait for this to be over..I don't even think this thing makes full sense because im so exhausted I can't think properly.. I am going to go to sleep now because i have to work Over time at work to make up for my lack of income..

Live Laugh Love *There are moments in your life that makes you and sets the course of who you're going to be. Sometimes there little, subtle moments. Sometimes, they're big moments you never saw coming. No one ask for their life to change, but it does. It's what you do afterwards that counts. That's when you find out who you are.*
