I received a couple Facebook messages asking whether we were in the path of Hurricane Sandy.
Thanks guys! That was so thoughtful:)!!
We are nestled right in South Jersey, where she is suppose to make landfall sometime late tomorrow/ early Tuesday morning.
I thought we were free and clear this year- it being almost Halloween and all!
But Sandy had to get all friendly and is really insisting on a visit...
So we made some preparations.
Like buying the staples for hurricane survival.
Ridiculous amounts of batteries and water.
Lots of dog food.
A ton of candles. (As many as I could find in pine scent...so we may loose our house, but it will smell like Christmas while we do.)
PB and J.
Diet Coke. (I will not survive personally without it.)
And lots of other really, really important things...
And we got there a little late. So I started sweating and freaking out.
Not because I thought we would die without it...but I didn't want to have to tell my mom I waited till the last minute and had to go iceless. Especially when she told me to get some the night before!
So that is when you tell your kids to get on the ground and see if they can get a glimpse of any in the back, hidden in reserve for the lucky employee families.
And when they spot those hidden bags, push your youngest kid through the door onto the shelf...
Tell him to man up and go save his family from Sandy.
Luckily, the store employee saw Philly's ankles hanging out of the freezer and offered to go grab us three bags.
Good thing I am super prepared and have my priorities in the right spot, because I did pick up the most important things before stopping for ice...
Like all the Home Alone movies.
And cheetah print slippers.
Which will be perfect if we get flooded.
And a few extra flash lights.
All of which will have run out of batteries before the storm even gets here because of being used like this for creepy story-telling.
You thought I forgot the most important thing-- Smash supplies.
Nope, got them too.
So now I can be smashing as our house floats away.
Told you I am prepared:).
On a more serious note,
I hope that all of you in the path of Sandy stay safe and sound.
Hope by the time she gets to you, that she is much less than a hurricane and simply moves out quick. I know that a lot of my crafty friends are scattered up and down the eastern seaboard, so my thoughts and prayers are with you all.
We are just gonna hang out here for the next few days.
Philly and Niamh's school is already cancelled through Tuesday...
And Phineas and Ferb are keeping smiles on our faces!
I am scheduling a sneak peek post for tomorrow...so even if we lose power, there should be something fun for you guys to check out:). I may not be able to publish comments or respond to emails, depending on the electric situation...
But I will get to them all eventually!
Have a great week, friends...wherever you are!
