That storm totally scared the hell out of me. I was kind of hoping josh was scared too so I could cling onto him all night but when I asked him if he was afraid and wanted to sleep in my room he looked at me like I had grown an extra eye and headed for his own bed. I braved it by myself.
Our power went out around 5 so I got to really listen to the storm instead of diverting my attention with Breaking Bad episodes on netflix and lame news reporters risking their lives on the beach while warning us mere mortals to stay off those very same beaches.
Just once i would like to see a news reporter swept out to sea, but then ultimately rescued totally shook up but other wise fine. That would end the hypocrisy once and for all.
Sandy was so loud I felt convinced I was on a moving locomotive. Except the floor wasn't moving along with the sound. I didn't hear the few trees way on the fringe of our property falling. Those trees are actually not even our trees. They just fell onto our lawn, which is fine because nothing came down near the house. I was watching the trees in front of our house for a while during the storm and trying to calculate the potential damage if they fell towards the house. I think the heavy part of them might crush our cars in the driveway but the house would only get scraped by branches. At least that is what I was telling myself in order to finally fall asleep last night. Tonight I'm being smarter and throwing back some beers.
Did I mention school is cancelled tomorrow too? It looks like the boys might get the whole week off. 85 percent of new town is without power.
It looks like things are pretty bad in step ford too. I feel like I bailed on my babes. Also, I am trying very hard lately to think kind thoughts but I have my fingers crossed that the nasty people who bought my beloved beautiful step ford house got completely flooded again. I have guilt over that too.
Evan was just about driving me out of my mind with his cranky attitude but then he disappeared into the bathroom for so long I went to check on him. He said he had an upset stomach but whatever it was he came down social and reasonable. I might start sneaking laxatives into his food. No I won't. But I will want to.
Josh just loves staying in because he is completely happy curled in a chair reading all day. My concern where he is concerned is that he might explode. He sneaks into the kitchen for the goodies I STUPIDLY bought (because none of us should be eating them) and he does the hand to mouth thing all day long. That apple didn't fall far from the tree
I had my teeth cleaned a couple of weeks ago and the hygienist, clearly frustrated by the presence of build up on my gum line nastily asked me if I ate a high sugar diet. I came dangerously close to sarcastically pointing out that no one 70 pounds over weight eats a high sugar diet. And tell her I eat only vegetables. Then she scheduled me for my next appointment but I got her! On my way out I told the receptionist I'd rather been seen by someone "gentler" and changed my appointment to someone else in the office.
More guilt: I also bought some Halloween candy for the kids because I had a feeling it was going to be cancelled AGAIN this year. Looks like I was right. All vegetables.
