Bummed Out BIG Time:-(

I am in such a crappy mood right now and for a VERY good reason... Hurricane Fay. I know that weather is unpredictable and all, but her projected is expected to take her to Tampa on Tuesday, which is when we're supposed to arrive in Tampa. We have been counting down the days and hours until this well-needed vacation and if this sets us off then I'll seriously freak out. Why the heck does stuff like this happen to me? I'm just praying that the hurricane 1) weakens and dies down or 2) takes another course. I know that the world doesn't revolve around me and that people get their plans and LIVES ruined by hurricanes all the time and thinking about that is kind of helping me to maintain the proper perspective... It's so not easy though:-(

Today has been kind of a slower day. My brother and his wife, my sister and her husband and son (Nathan) are all in Kitty Hawk, NC for vacation. My parents are in Washington DC for a few days before they drive down to Kitty Hawk to meet everyone. My in-laws are out of town with my brother-in-law and his wife, and John worked last night so he's sleeping. I'm not saying that I'm not self-sufficient or anything, but I do enjoy having people to spend time with... Especially on Saturdays. For some reason I can't stand the thought of being alone on Saturdays. I guess it's because that's when family's usually get together and John never gets them off. Today is okay but I'm REALLY dreading tomorrow, too. I'll be the only one from my side of the family and John's side of the family at church so I won't have anyone to go to lunch with or to help me with Brooke or anything. I have friends there and all but I'm used to being surrounded by my family at church. It's just not going to be the same!

In much more optimistic news, Brookie turned 18 months old yesterday! I seriously can't even believe that. Where, oh where, did the time go? It's hard to think that 18months ago from today I was holding my tiny baby, just learning how to nurse her, and recovering from that horrible C-Section. How soon we forget those first days! I can't wait to do it again!

Okay, it's time for housework. PLEASE PRAY FOR HURRICANE FAY TO DIE!

Well, having been through my share of hurricanes, i can say that you never know when they will turn and completely miss the area that the weather guys say they will hit. I sure hope it misses Tampa too so I don't have to leave school. And so you guys get your vacation! I'm praying it will turn!!!
