We have it! We left my mom's house early this afternoon to finally come home. Luke and Justin had to run some errands this morning and I stayed behind to pack up our things. Also, I had cramps. Yes, you did need to know that. We got here and I had so much to do. I cleaned out my refrigerator and freezer earlier in the week so that was already done. It was a rough job then cause we lost everything. We had nothing to eat in here so I had to go to the store. Everyone had this idea. Plus, not all the grocery stores have all the stuff. I wished I had my camera with me because the pictures would tell a sad tale. I went to my favorite store first. I had hardly no produce at all- no lettuce, tomatoes, carrots, cucumbers, apples, nothing really. Well, some lemons, butternut squash and very hard avocados. I cannot make a salad with that though. There was no frozen foods except ice cream. I'm TRYING to diet. It's very, very hard to do that in the middle of a disaster. I went to a second store and got some salad stuff and frozen veggies, but not much. I still couldn't find any onions or bell peppers- frozen or not. I will go out to look again tomorrow. I'm cooking red beans and rice tomorrow if I can find my seasonings. (Tacos tonight)I'm nervous about Ike and so is everybody else. I spoke to many people today in both stores (I SO should be a reporter!) and that was the number one topic- how they didn't want to buy too much in case of Ike coming next week. The other topics that is on our minds here- YAY! Our electricity is back on and we are going home or turning our generator off. OR BOO! We don't have electricity yet and we are paying out the hoo-ha for gas for our generator or staying with family and ready to go home. I still want to show ya'll the pictures that I have from Tuesday but I cannot find my cord right now. I'll get to it ASAP. For now, go HERE for images of Hurricane Gustav.
