And this time, it's supposed to be much worse than Irene was for us last year. It's taken everything out of me not to panic like I did last time, trusting Dear Hubby that we have enough of what we need. Breathe.
Lest you think I have been keeping quiet! Hubby will attest that I have been complaining/muttering/suggesting that we should have our bug-out bags packed and ready to go in case the zombie apocalypse arises from the massive power outage we are soon to experience. No, it doesn't help I keep watching episodes of The Walking Dead, but I just like to be prepared, don't you?
At least my books are ready to go. All three have a connection to the writing conference I went to last week. Mockingbird's Kathryn Erksine was our keynote speaker, and Another Faust's Daniel Nayeri gave a riveting talk on "How to be Interesting." Finally, Carrier of the Mark's Leigh Fallon is represented by Tina Wexler, who was one of the agents who attended.
I want to inhale all of these books! But, I must save them for these next few days, when I will cling to them for sanity as my sweet, dear, beloved family tears our humble abode apart from cabin fever. When I say that books transport me to another space and time, believe it. And when you find me in my closet in a few days, reading with a flashlight, just pat me on the head and close the door. Just close the door and step away. Step away and go find me some coffee.
I wish my fellow North Easterners safety! And I hope that I will be able to post in the next couple of days that this whole hurricane fiasco was blown out way out of proportion! Until then, my flashlights are ready, my bathtub's filled, and my phone is charged to capacity.
