We survived Hurricane Rita!
It was very scarey for awhile, but we really lucked out when she made the northern turn. I have never been so scared in my life. I am absolutely exhausted from the preparations we did for this gal. We boarded up windows, packed up special memories, stocked up on water and packaged foods, and considered leaving. In the end we stayed but never let our guard down until late last night when we knew for sure that she was landing well to the east of us.
I think we are going to chalk this up to a good disaster drill. We worked as a team and now know exactly what is important to pack up and what is not.
It was quite a chore taking everything down and putting the house back in order. I am not sorry that we did the preps we did, but it was ALOT of work.
I do have my foot surgery scheduled for Oct 11th and am hoping that the date won't be changed due to this city shutting down for the hurricane. Dh and I took a short drive early this evening and Houston was like a ghost town. Gas is still in short supply and most everything else was closed. I kept forgetting it was Saturday as the city was so dead.
My foot is getting so much worse so I am glad that I decided to go ahead and get the bunion fixed. I know that it's pressing on a nerve and that is what is causing me the problems.
That's my update for today. I am trying to declutter as I put stuff back and am hoping that soon my foot will be pain free. Small steps, one pain free body part is a major milestone for me.
