Hello Dear Readers:
We are bracing down for this crazy Hurricane Irene to make her fury known. Although the weather people, every local (and national ) news channel is trying to make me crazy, I am remaining calm. We put the cars in the garage, closed the pool, put all of the outdoor furniture inside and are hoping for the best. We have plenty of water, food, a generator, candles, flashlights and if we lose internet and cable, we have: those good old-fashioned things that sit on my shelves by the hundreds, oh yeah....books!! I am hoping that all of the old, dead scary looking trees on our property sit still and do not fall on said pool, house or otherwise. We are heading to my mom's to have a sleepover with our family and all of the babies will be together, so that will be fun! If we lose cable there, we are bringing board games to keep us all busy. My mom also has plenty of food, and we will be fine! I wish all of my fellow NYers and East Coasters the best and hope you all have somewhere safe to hunker down. This Irene is going to be a B-I-T-C-H!
