It has been more than a week since I’ve been able to post, and now we know that it takes an act of God to keep me from blogging.
As you may know, Hurricane Isaac made his way into my life last week, leaving my family and me without power for seven days. In addition to ruining my week, Isaac left me without amenities that we often take for granted.
We had no electricity because the generator stopped working only four hours into the storm. I didn’t have access to the internet, nor could I make phone calls, tweet, etc. (Who knew I could survive without social media?!)
Stores were closed most of last week, and it’s still hard to find fresh produce and cold items which is strange. It was hard to motivate myself to workout too when it was nearly 100 degrees and humid in the house, but I did some interval training over the weekend.
There was some property damage, but we’re all okay. The air conditioner should work again later today at which point life should start getting back to normal. I am exhausted and so tired of being hot, but I’m glad the worst is over.
I have errands to run, responsibilities to fulfill and a lot of work to catch up on over the next few days. School was cancelled last week so I started yesterday, and I’m glad to be getting back into the groove. My professors are awesome so far!
I want to thank those of you who took time to send messages and well wishes throughout the storm. Though I couldn’t see the messages immediately, seeing them when I finally did made me feel warm and fuzzy. It means so much to me to know that many of you care about me as much as I care about you.
Have you ever been through a hurricane? Have you ever experienced a situation that left you disconnected from the outside world for a week? How did you cope?
