Hurricane Isaac turned out to be a real pain in the butt this week! There is never a good time for a hurricane, but this was really bad timing! We decided to evacuate because electricity goes out in this Lynnmeade house with a brisk wind, so we knew it would be out, for a while, after this storm. We packed the kids up and drove up to Dad and Ellie's house in Hattiesburg. It turned out to be a fantastic decision! We never lost power in Hattiesburg, and outside of a few minor inconveniences, it was like a vacation! Nana came up the first night and entertained us all week! As an added bonus, Paw Paw came up later in the week. Gavin was thrilled! He loves Nana and Paw Paw!
The real thing hanging over our heads was the move into our new house. Once we got word that we had power there, we packed up and camped out for a couple of days on Piper Lane with no furniture or modern luxuries. We cleaned and painted and prepared for our move. Gary, Gavin, Emaline and I slept in the same room. We all kept each other up. Ok, mostly it was Emaline who kept everyone up. When the lights came back on in Gretna, we headed back to wash clothes and have everyone sleep in their own beds (and watch TV). Now, we pick up where we left off before that darned Isaac visited.
Our move is scheduled for this weekend. Hopefully, my next post will be all about our wonderful new house!
