after the five day weekend...

well, the kids had a five day weekend...as for me, it was just four days. yeah, just four. four lovely, soggy, wind blown days. at least the sun finally came out on sunday. and, thank goodness the sun is still shining today {and it's actually on the warm side, too!}.

we survived the nor'easter. we survived the 12+ hour power outage. we survived driving the roads the day after. and, we survived the yard clean up. thank goodness the mall was open on friday - i got some much needed retail therapy and the kids got a hot meal courtesy of mcdonald's. friday night it seemed like we were getting ready to go through round two of the nasty weather -- seriously, it was raining sideways again -- but at least i was able to enjoy a $1 mojito with dinner & then drank some delicious barefoot pinot grigio with my favorite ladies.

saturday the girl & i headed out to get my hair cut and then we strolled around home goods and enjoyed vietnamese chicken noodle soup for lunch. later that evening the whole family headed to wal-mart for some unnecessary grocery items {and a new comforter for our bed} and then adam & i proceeded to make our version of chilaquiles for dinner. the tooth fairy also paid us a visit...aidan lost another bottom tooth. he woke up sunday morning two dollars richer & grinning from ear to ear.

sunday was a day of cleaning. adam spent the entire day {really, he did} raking the yard. twenty yard size trash bags later {all filled with pine needles}...he was finished. we woke up this morning to find that they were already picked up by someone {probably by someone with a farm or horses or both}. i spent my sunday cleaning the inside of our home & doing as many loads of laundry as i could bare.

unfortunately for me, i never got around to the floors so a fate of vacuuming & mopping await me when i return home. joy.

we're no worse for wear. the storm blew us around a lil' bit, but that's about all. i have some video & some pictures which will eventually get posted. promise.

i have had to deal with storms too just like you just did. everything will be ok. it'll take a little time to clean up but soon enough everything will be back to normal. as long as everyone is good thats most important.
