This has been a most unsettling time along the East Coast. My sister was in town for a week for a planned trip just after her house was burglarized. Emotions ran high, and I did the best I could to raise her spirits, but it was not long lasting. Immediately after she left to head home, another friend came to stay with me for a few days, during which hurricane Sandy landed 5 extra people at my house which was lucky enough to maintain power throughout the storm. My sister, 2 hours away, was back to work but had no power at home for 4 days. The neighboring developments in my own same town were not as lucky as ours either. Power has been restored for all of them now, and for that I am thankful.
They don't call it the season of the witch for nothing, eh?
The house is cleaned now as everyone has left; all the beds are re-made with fresh washed linens, cots are back in storage and floors are vacuumed. Time to re-stock the now hollow freezer with super healthy choices for the next leg of the journey, and thankful I had a working freezer from which to feed everyone through this ordeal.
The next leg of the journey (pun intended); DH will get both knees replaced. This is the perfect time to plan meals and stick to an exercise plan without interference while he's in the hospital and rehab, and BE his legs for the things he needs (as I have been for awhile) when he returns home and until his recovery is complete. After that, we'll be unstoppable, right?
Blessings to all!
