Realizing that the impact from Hurricane Sandy is FAR from over, these are some of the “things” I have learned thus far:
Having no electric is a temporary annoyance, I'm lucky that I still have my home, and my family is safe. Ask me how I feel after 15 days of no reality TV and no hot water, someone please tell me what happens on Chopped, please!
Hot showers and hot coffee are a luxury.
Being disconnected from the world is bizarre, however having a smart phone and FaceBook has been great and as much as I hate FacebBook sometime it has been the only way to get news, and information in regard to my family and friends. Thank you Mark Zuckerberg.
Sleeping with my children still sucks hurricane or no hurricane, getting kicked in the head by four little legs still hurts but knowing that they are safe with me is kinda sorta worth the black eyes.
Reading is Fundamental. I should tell my children that the power is out every day, they haven't stopped reading, Richie has been studying, and Matthew is not whining about practicing his site words. Nice!
The kids are alright and so damn resilient, nothing phases them NOTHING. We should all rip a page out of their books.
Sour Milk is sour milk. NEVER taste (or smell) any food that you think “could” be bad. Not a good idea. EVER.
Starbucks Vermont pike blend is STRONG but tastes so good.
The hurricane Sandy diet is amazing... no fast food, limited supply of food, if this continues I should reach my goal weight in days!
People still suck, while waiting in line at Starbucks I overhead someone complain that they didn't have their mocha latte blah blah blah, really? How about thank you for opening Starbucks, and practice the Kindergarten motto of “you get what you get and you don't get upset”. Supplies are limited everywhere PEOPLE.
