Up and Running
I hope everyone has faired well through Hurrican Irene. Thankfully in the Rhode Island area she decided to fizzle out a little. We have had a lot of trees down and many people have been without power. Luckly my house didn't lose power, but we played games of monopoly with the kids anyway. After monopoly since we didn't lose power my oldest wanted to make remake Robo. Robo is a lego kit where you make a robot. Yes literally. It took my husband all day, and he needed the lap top to build it. Now all that needs to be done is program Robo also with the lap top. Needles to say I got no editing done on my work in progress. Oh well, I did the Wii fit instead. It felt good to move my body again.
We also got the call that the first day of school was canceled (they were supposed to start Monday.) Monday we got the call saying school has been canceled until further notice. I'm hoping my the time this post airs they are back to school. My guess is one of the schools lost power. I wouldn't be surprised because Monday I couldn't go to work because we lost power there too. I went in on Tuesday and expected to do what I can while the generator had us half up. Luckily over the lunch hour we got power back. Yay, I can get a full day's pay.
So there you have it. We survived. My house is safe; we only lost one tree which never came down, but is leaning against another and is coming down on Wednesday when the tree guy comes. The cabin is fine, just cleaning up the lawn, and getting ready for Labor Day. Hey, that reminds me. Did you sign up for the Labor Day Blogfest? The link is closed but that doesn't mean you can't particitpate. September 6 is the day of the Blog fest. Click the link to find out more!
Have a safe and happy Clean up!
