I have been waiting for this weekend for a long time. Mr. J and I are off tonight to DC. I get to visit my brother and his wife before they go off overseas again for 2 years. I also get to visit my parents who are in town for a while. And finally, I get to see some of my best friends. I cannot wait!
What I can wait for is this hurricane that seems to be determined to make a mess of the whole eastern coast. I am afraid I will have to deal with it in DC on Saturday and then follow it up the coast on Sunday.
I am not one to get over panicked about events like these. I guess I kind of think what will happen will happen. But coming home to a no power apartment without water just doesn't sound enjoyable to me. Wal-mart was already sold out of all water this morning. I quickly ran to the grocery store to score 3 gallons of water and a few Gatorades for Mr. J. I hope if we do lose power this will be enough to get us through. This mini vacation is not off to a great start!
Let's just pray that the storm weakens and no one and nothing gets hurt during this natural mess!
