How I'm Doing So Far

survived the blow job

shouldn't be making light when some people suffered extensive damage and loss to homes, but i've just finished up (kind of) a shift that started at about 5am yesterday and included a 2-hour 2:30-4:30am nap on a very hard floor. (noticed then that i've lost all my padding!)
We were again spared here in Nassau. Had tropical storm force conditions from yesterday evening straight through to now.... Work was hard - we were experiencing the storm, chasing the storm (reporting on the southern islands) and staying ahead of the storm (looking at how northern islands were prepping)... but we got so many really nice comments from people who were counting on our updates and that made it easier and worth doing. Plus we have a great skeleton crew that stayed the course and got the job done.
Irene sped up so we were able to get out this evening rather than spend a second night there thank goodness. I came to my parents' house because I knew all the roads were relatively clear to get here and hadn't heard whether i'd have major obstacles trying to get out to my house. and the friends who were taking care of the house and sylvia had planned on 2 nights anyway - win win again :)
Betsy the Band DOES NOT LIKE hurricanes. In addition to being tight because of all this stress, exhaustion and the lower barometric pressure, my period decided it would be a good time to come yesterday! I've pb'd (sometimes poltergeist style) pretty much everything i tried to eat the past 3 days..... ugh.... this afternoon i managed to get down and keep down the cheese mixture from a sandwich triangle..... that's it. had all kinds of food to ride out the storm and managed to eat none of it!

Anyway, I'm still having to update the website but need a shower desperately. and then i think bed will be coming soon.

thanks so much for all the kind messages. I really appreciate them. And to whoever is next on Irene's hit list - ALL THE BEST!

We are next in line - I'm in eastern NC. Center of the storm is predicted to be within 80 miles of my hood. Glad you're okay.

So very glad you came through ok dear. Thanks for the update, I was worried when I saw Nassau on the Weather Channel this morning getting hit hard.

The title SERIOUSLY cracked me up! I am so bummed - we were unable to go to CocoCay on Saturday because of the storm damage so I unexpectedly spent two days docked in Nassau...and I was wishing I had a way to reach you! I had no way to get in touch and I knew there was another Bandster RIGHT there who I couldn't reach. I would have loved to have met you there pre-Chicago. Ah well...I had a great time in your town.
