I cried this morning.
I cried this morning because I didn’t cry yesterday.
Yesterday I was cheery and determined to get things done around the house in prep for Isaac’s arrival. Yesterday they hardly even mentioned a “Category 2″. I was still stuck on the possibility that the winds might, might reach 100 miles per hour. I was still thinking they’d be only 90. No big deal right?
I even youtubed what 90 mph winds look like in Florida. They didn’t seem that bad. It just looked like a bad storm. Lots of rain. Puddles across the entire road. But it didn’t really phase me.
But category 2??? I don’t know what to expect.
And that scares me.
I went to bed last night and B woke me up saying it’s headed right for the Destin/Ft. Walton Beach area. That’s my neighbor. That’s enough to cry about.
I’ve never been in a hurricane.
B’s never been in a hurricane.
I’ve never had to “board up a house” or create a “hurricane binder“.
I’m showing chocolate chip banana muffins because this morning while I was crying, I was baking.
I made the best of the situation and made banana chocolate chip muffins. Well that and if I didn’t and we did pack up and leave, I’d come home to a house full of fruit flies ;)
If you’ve been in a hurricane, please don’t tell me I’m ridiculous for crying. Please just pray for me and my family instead. Remember, we’ve never been through this and it may not even get as bad as the media loves to hype it up, but it’s a first for us and we have no idea what to expect!
Since I started writing this I checked the most current update… it’s headed more west. Like New Orleans west.
We’ll make our decision tomorrow morning as to if we stay or go, but please keep praying! My nerves are crazy crazy right now!
