My Disney Storm Warriors have all come home - Cody and Marquee came home, got home around midnight. My brother and sister-in-law also got home around the same time so I'm not stressing over my people being in Orlando - and that helps! I am, of course, worried about friends who are still in the path and praying for everyone facing this crazy storm. I think South Carolina is looking to have more damage than they thought yesterday so I'm back to semi-worrying about Ryan and Sara in Myrtle Beach but they're young and resourceful and don't have any babies with them so I'm not AS worried as I was about Oliver being in Disney and not having power or food, etc. Or my nieces experiencing the horror of a natural disaster. I'm much better when I'm not in Jewish-mother mode.
Cody sent me a video of a Tupac song about his mom and how she always was there for him and all and I was like... "are you trying to make me cry?" because... seriously... I was emotional all day between the migraine and worrying over everybody. When Cody texted and told me they were turning around I broke down. The only reply I gave him was, "whew". It was like the weight of the world was lifted off of my shoulders. I was also having a major autoimmune flare. My cheeks were so red and hot that they were almost purple. I kept holding cold things against my face to try to make it not burn so much - like a can of San Pellagrino. (it's a fizzy flavored water).
A vlogger that I watch is also pregnant. She announced it yesterday by showing her already huge bump, which I thought was amusing.
I've watched the weather channel nonstop for the past 36 hours so... forgive me if there's nothing all that interesting to blog about. I'm trying.
I've invented a new keurig drink. I took a chai tea k-cup and mixed it with a packet of the hot apple cider mix and it was really tasty. I also mixed a cappuccino k-cup and added a packet of hot chocolate and it was also quite nice.
I forgot to share this little funny story that happened with Cosette when she was with us on Wednesday. Little Kitty has one of those cat scratching posts with a little perch for him to rest on. He reached his front paws against the scratching post and arched his tail end into the air and gave a good stretch. Cosy was watching and when he went away she tried to get in the same position with her own little tail in the air! It was so funny! I asked if her she was a kitty-cat and she looked embarrassed.
Anyways. That's life here in Mom-Angst Central while I obsessively monitor Hurricane Matthew for any potential harm toward my babies. Even if my baby in Myrtle Beach will be 30 next month. You never stop worrying about them. Hope you all are safe, dry and not in harm's way! Love and hugs, y'all!
