I'm happy. I'm Happy! I'm a wriggly puppy popping out of the gift box, all goofy and squirmy and yippee. :) Happiness! (A spotted puppy with adorable puppy eyes!)
And, I survived! Horrible storms last night - severe damage and many homes lost around the area. I haven't heard any numbers yet - with all the trees down across the roads and debris scattered about, it will take some time to get all the details together. It was enough to have me hiding my head under the covers and Muffin diving under the bed. Lost power about 12:30 a.m. and it was still off when I left for work. Looking forward to my shower tonight!!
In the midst of the storm, I'm trying to find my flip flops (so I wouldn't step on any spiders!) in my very dark house (which is being lit up with lightening strikes in an eerie fashion), desperately searching for a flashlight. Just a matter of weeks before, I'd stumbled across two and put them somewhere for safe keeping. Sure wish I knew where that safe place was now... Off to Wally World after work to create an emergency kit so I'll be more prepared next time.
Happy Hump Day - counting my blessings for having my family and our houses safe and sound!
