All Things Considered...

I may be computer-less for a while. Don't know exactly when, but it seems inevitable. First of all, our incredibly handy and talented middle son is putting in new flooring for us all over the whole house, and at some point the computers will be disconnected and shoved in a corner for a while. But it is possible that before that happens, Tropical Storm Fay could develop in to a hurricane and smash right in to us, which almost by definition equals no power. So if I am MIA that is why.

We are preparing, and I'm trying not to grouse. Luckily I'm married to a genius :) and he's building special frames for the windows that we can just slide clear hurricane panels in to, so we'll be able to do it even when the boys aren't around to come help us - but this year he's still in the process. Yesterday all three of our wonderful sons came over to help. The plywood is harder to put up, plus it makes the inside of the house dark and cave-like. So I really like the ones with the clear panels!

I'll keep on keepin' on as long as possible, and if I'm out for a while, that's why. And at some point I'll show -n-tell about all the projects going on around here!

Sending you much love and all my best wishes for the hurricane. Maybe won't grow into one.

I'll miss you if you're off-line and look forward to your return.

P.S. I know you've been praying for the boys. I posted a long update yesterday.

Be safe, dear friend! I will be praying for your safety. To me, hurricanes are scary.

I hope you don't bear the brunt of the storm. At least you don't have to sit it out in the dark, the clear panels sound just the job. Do take care, and look forward to hearing from you once things have calmed down somewhat. x

I'm excited about your new flooring, but hope that you survive the hurricane with no damage.

I'm praying this hurricane gives you a little excitement and family togetherness but no damage to property or health, dear!

Praying for the safety of you and your family!!! And hoping the storm simmers down and goes away!

I have been listening to the weather reports. Stay safe! Keep us posted as to what is going on if you can. You, and your family, are in my prayers.

Well I hope its the work that puts you out of action and not the hurricane!
You know you could always grab a few of your blog friends adresses and converse via snail mail.... :o) Granted it doesn't give you that instant reply warm feeling but it keeps a dated tradition going for a bit longer! :o)

Came to let you know that I've been praying.

Be safe. It sounds like you've got a wonderful support group built right into your family! :)

Take care and keep us posted.
