update today

Wednesday, September 13, 2017

the good news is Lily and I are fine. As soon as we got home...I think that was Sun morning? I'm so confused as to days...anyway, Lily immediately started eating and drinking and rolling around on the floor just SO happy to be home. The heat isn't bothering her and I'm doing better than I thought I would at night. I'm sleeping well.

We are being told our whole area should have power restored by the 23rd...that's a long time! But they are using the giant area generator to keep water service going...we dont want sewer back up or water shut down.

My bosses are being great. I've been told that I can go to a hotel until my power is back up. I think that is such a kind and generous offer! But I won't go...I'm doing ok at home and I don't want uproot Lily again and I'm sure not leaving her alone. I was also told not to worry about work for the rest of the week. But I will plan to go in by Monday. I'll just have to put my makeup on in the office :)

I am more grateful than you all can know...for all the love and support you are giving me. I can not always give an update or use the limited power in my devices to reply to you each individually at this time, but please know I am reading all your comments and I am moved by each one of them.

God bless you all and love and hugs from me and head butts and sandpaper kisses from my sweet Lily girl...

PS: right now I'm sitting in Publix using their wifi and charging my devices. I'm going to go back up to my dear friend for lunch. I hate to use the gas which is still hard to come by, but I need to go for sanity. I was there for dinner last night and treated like a queen!

    Nancy I am so happy to see your blog and to know you're back in your home safely with Lily. I agree with the decisions you have made. I, too, would prefer to be in my own home even if conditions aren't up to par.

    I've also heard from 2 other friends in FL that they are in their homes with only minor damage, and awaiting power.

    God is good and prayers are strong. We'll continue to pray for everyone still dealing with the aftermath in both TX and FL.

    Love and hugs to you Nancy.

    So glad that you and Lily are able to be home again! Living without power isn't easy. I'm glad that your friend is nearby and that you can get a break now and then to visit her. I hope that it doesn't take as long as they think for you to get your lights and ac back. If it does get too hot, it's nice to know that your bosses have your back. I know you want to be home, but it is nice to know that you have a back-up should you need it.

    Take care of yourself! Hugs and head butts all around. emoticon

    So happy to hear from you and find that you & Lily are doing well. I know how that is with a pet that is easily stressed; you don't like to interrupt their routine too much. If you can stand the heat, I don't blame you for staying home. Still pray for you & Lily! emoticon

    Glad you are ok, and that your home is in fairly good shape. Thank goodness for friends, eh? Lily must be on top of the Earth at home. I hope the week goes by quickly for you, so you can get electricity again. emoticon

    I'm so relieved to know that you and Lily are both alright and able to be in your own home. It was very generous of your bosses to make the offer of a hotel, but there's no place like home. I'm sure you are both feel much better being there. I hope your home didn't suffer any damage.

    Hopefully your power will be restored before the 23rd. I saw on the news that there are thousands of electrical workers travelling to Florida to help with that. Thankfully you still have running water.
    Hang in there and hugs to you both!

    So glad that you were able to get back home and I know that is where Lily is most comfortable! I would stay there too. That is a long time for power! My friend's boyfriend is on his way to Florida now with generators to set up cell towers. He works for a cell phone company. Traveling from IL to get things going. Praying for you and Lily. Take care!

    I'm so glad that Lily is doing so well. She really loves her home. I'm also happy that you are able to cope so well. It's a blessing you still have water and sewer even if you have to wait for electricity. It's great that your bosses appreciate you and that you have a good friend looking out for you too. emoticon

    I am so glad to hear that you are home -- means your house survived. Maybe the condition isn't as you left it but at least it's livable. Sorry to hear about the power though. I'm glad you have water but, really, the 23rd does seem far, far in the future (coming from someone who is also counting days).

    Tony sends his bestest head butt to each of you and the dogs sending their calming influence. I send hugs. You've been so much in my thoughts. No one expects you to post daily or personally. We are just happy to hear updates when you can give them.

    Thank you for the update. so glad you 2 are doing good. our fur babies get so stressed when things change for them and they don't understand. so glad to hear Lily is eating. i like you would be worried about my fur babies. you need to get out for sanity's sake.

    saw on the news a few days ago when the news person was at a school in Florida and interviewing people there and the pets were in the hall way. i thought of you and Lily and was wondering if that was where you were.

    yes, i would rather have water and sewage, but electric is greatly missed. hope your power will get restored sooner.

    still thinking of you and praying. have a good day.
