Back in Business!!!

Well, what can I say?! I survived my very first and hopefully last, hurricane! Here's a quick run-down. I rushed home Thursday after school to get a gameplan together. I was off Friday, so I got up, put gas in the car, bought a few staples, and opened a new checking account...I know, a hurricane was coming, and I did my banking, but I needed to get that taken care of, and Friday was a great time to do it.
Wal-Mart closed at 10 a.m. on Friday, so I knew the storm was supposed to be big. The rest of Friday was pretty relaxing. I watched movies, ate take-out, and just had a great time doing nothing.
I went to bed around 2 a.m., and we lost power around 3:30 a.m. I went home to Copperas Cove on Saturday, and stayed until Monday because I thought I had to go back to work on Wednesday.
Needless to say, I've been off the entire week, and will be off until next Monday! YIPPEEEE!!!! I'm so excited...I get to have Quiet Time at Starbucks tomorrow, one of my favorite things to do. This has been a great time of relaxation, getting NOTHING accomplished because NOTHING has been open until today, and just enjoying life and friends! I hate this was all at the expense of a horrible hurricane that caused so much damage. I'm sad for the millions of people still without power, food, shelter...etc. I ask that you continue to pray for them!
I also went to check on the house yesterday, and can I say not a piece of debris was in the yard! God is so good. Let's keep praying saints until we see this thing through!
I'll write more later, but I gotta go! Love you guys, and I'm so happy to be safe!
