LOL Thank you Vit. Actually we only lost power for just under 24 hours. Everything was good in the fridge except a steak that sat in fridge to long. The milk and greens were still good. We couldn;t get back into our house till wednesday because we still had like 4 feet of water in our yard and had to wait for it to recede. We only really lost our landline phone and one of our curcuits keeps popping on 1 line that is dedicated to the a/c. Which we DON'T need at the moment LOL. Mother nature has turned up the natural a/c! But we need it checked out soon. We were told it is probably just the box that needs to be replaced. And the 1 bedroom, hallway and bathroom got a bit flooded. Hub already rented a rug cleaner and did that yesterday in the bedroom.

I think all the stress has finally caught up with me big time. I am wiped out and feel a bit sick. Probably from wet and cold feet monday night when we spent the night in the car then another 24+ hours in a pretty cold hotel room. But all in all I count myself lucky others around us have lost EVERYTHING.

I think I will just be split 2 cans of Chunky Veg Beef soup over Success Rice for the 4 of us and call it a day.

Good morning everyone

Very warm night...23 degrees right now...going to be 36 degrees today and 34 tomorrow can we have Spring back please

This morning we are heading out early to Bunnings....our fave shop!

We are getting a couple of nice big pots for the patio and we are replanting a couple of the exisiting plants into them as we want then to grow more, so they need bigger pots for that

Good to get out early and try to get back to the air conditioning before it reaches that 36c

That sounds like a banquet for all of you right now. A nice hot meal.

I bought gallons of water, soup and boil in bag rice in case we lost power. Didn't think we would have to leave because a levvee would break. So we still have some soup and rice left.

I passed out last night around 12 a.m. Woke up this morning somewhere around 9:30 a.m. and was horrified. Had to get dressed fast. No time for a shower. Had to wrap eight mini loaves and get them to the church real fast. My legs wanted to fall off me at that point. The stairs to the fair are short, but curving. Can I make it? Do I call for help? I made it. I need to just drop them off and get back for shower and get ready for daughter who is pickiing me up to go for a much needed haircut. Everybody had to say thank you and give me a hug. Made it out of there and back home. Jump in the shower, dress and downstairs just in time as daughter pulls up. Didn't even have time to take pain pills. Get back home. Feeling guilty. Head back to the church. Every year I buy at least one item at the fair. So I get a pair of cute gold Christmas bow earings, buy a $1 chance (didn't win) and buy a cup of coffee. I did my bit, head home. Oh no. Did I miss ATK? No. Just in time. But fell asleep at the very beginniing and slept through the first 15 minutes.

Legs still hurting, only more. It is my thigh muscles. It has something to do with my thyroid. Don't know what, but was told many years ago by a doctor. Have to remember to ask my doctor the next time I see him. I still have a lot of things I have to do. Empty the five trash baskets and put in new liners, do three loads of laundry, clean the bathroom, a sinkful of silverware, take pain pills, finish paying bills on line, clean the kitchen, on and on. All I have managed to do is take pain pills. Oh I forgot, get meats wrapped for the freezer, make a fresh pot of coffee. I think I am going to call Son #1 and ask for his help. Hate to, but have no choice. I am getting too old to have a plate this full. I am goiing to have him take the laundry downstairs to do the laundry. I have been saving quarters for just such a day. Then while he is waiting for that to be done he can do the trash for me. The rest I can do tomorrow after I have given my thighs a chance to recover. I am exhausted.
