Hello.

saturated canary digis 

Thank you for all the Facebook and email love.
We are good.  
Our house is fine.  
And, despite skipping trick-or-treating for the time being, we all had a good night.  
Hanging out in our Halloween socks.
At a hotel, because we have not had power since sometime Monday afternoon.  

It has been a fun night actually.  
The hotel only had a suite left, so we have lots of room, two tv's, and a nice gym right below us.
Score:).  

If you have emailed me in the last three days-- well, really since Sunday-- I will respond aSaP!  This is the first time I have connected my laptop to the internet in the last few days and have a bunch of messages to read through still.  Thank you for understanding!!

We were fortunate.  
Our area was not hit that hard.  I think the eye of the storm pretty much went over us...or fairly close.  However, the Jersey shore, north Jersey, and NYC-- parts of those areas are just destroyed.  It breaks my heart to look at the photos and listen to the stories on the radio.  Our favorite beach was literally underwater yesterday.  Having no power kinda sucks.  And walking around in puddles in the basement, that sucks too.  But those little things pale in comparison to the devastation on the news.  

I am thankful to be in matchy socks tonight with my babies and boy. 
I am reminded that we are small people; and God is so big and powerful.
And I am in awe that the One who calms the winds and waves with a simple word 
loves me.  

Good night, friends!
Gonna make good use of this suite while we got it;).

  2. Very glad everyone is safe! Praise!

    Power outages do suck. You never realize how dependent we are until you can't access it.

    Super SCORE on the suite! Enjoy it! Enjoy the family time you will have - this will make memories for you.

    Thanks for checking in for us.

    Prayers for you & your family.

  3. Glad you guys are making out OK. Hope your power will be restored soon.
    This time storm passed us by, not entirely, but partially. At least we did not loose power, and kids are having all the fun they can off from school. They are keeping our schools closed for now.

    So true about little things in life. Thanks God, you are all together and well. The basement will be repaired. Some day ))))

  9. Sooo thankful you are all alright! I have been so sad watching about all the destruction. My great-aunt had a home five houses from the boardwalk in Seaside Park. We used to go there all the time and have such fabulous memories of the beach and getting to go to Seaside Heights for a special treat! She has since passed away, but a neighbor bought the house... my sister stopped once, last year I think, and they were out and let them walk through the house. She took pictures and I'm so glad she did, I'm sure it's probably destroyed. Such a loss....
    Enjoy your hotel time, although I know you'd rather be home!!!
    Take care!
    Hugs,
    Teri

  16. Great to hear, that you´re all safe and sound, and yes then the small things suddenly don´t matter much anymore, that´s for sure. We´ve heard and seen a lot from it here in Europe too, so it´s good to hear, that most people is okay, then all the other things can be fixed over time.
    Have a great time and take good ccare of yourself and each other.

  32. Hi Krista - I'm pleased to hear you and your family are safe and sound. My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected by the storm - hope everyone gets back on their feet quickly.

    A trip from my school was bound for New York, scheduled to leave the UK early on Monday morning. They didn't leave, but they will hopefully be going early in 2013, when things are straightened out a bit.

    Take care, Helen xxx

  38. I am soooo glad you posted your status--'have been worried sick about you and your family. I can't believe the devastation up your way. We are supposed to vacation in NYC the week of Thanksgiving with another couple but hubby and I are seriously thinking of rescheduling. We were flying into NJ and riding train to Times Square. Now it is sounding like a bad time to be there. But I am so happy, happy you are safe and sound!!! What a freaky storm! Hugs

  47. Hello Krista, it's so nice to hear from you! I'm happy you are all OK! All the news on TV looked so scary and what's more, I'm afraid those news were just a fraction of what the sad reality is :((
    No power definitely sucks! Hope this problem will be solved soon (if not already). Enjoy the suite and hope you'll be able to return home asap!
    Hugs,

  50. Oh Krista...I just popped over to see what you've been up to and then I remembered that you are in NJ!! I'm so glad you and your family are safe. My thoughts and prayers are with you...and with all of those "touched" by Hurricane Sandy's devastation! Hang in there! Love the socks, by the way! Hugs. Pat Frank

  51. so glad that you are all ok, lovely!! It must be terrible to have no power to stop such a natural catastrophe and to know it will hit yo somehow. I would be devastated, would be so scared that my animals might get hurt or that your loved ones might get hurt.
    I'm just so glad and relieved for you that it's over and nothing too bad happened to you and your family!
    Big hugs, Alessandra

  52. So glad you are all fine! But I just have to say that I love love love the end of your post! Being in FL we are used to storms, floods and hurricanes...so I do understand the sadness at seeing so much destruction. Praying for all those affected!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I'm glad to hear you weathered the storm okay, Krista! It wasn't too bad by the time it got here, just a lot of rain and some blustery winds. Sorry about trick or treating but you all look comfy, cozy in your jammies and slipper socks! Hope things are back to normal for you soon, if they're not already! Sending hugs and good thoughts!
    {hugs}
