By now I'm sure all of my readers know that we live right on the Gulf Coast. The water is less than a mile from our neighborhood--which is wonderful and all except, you know, when a hurricane is approaching.
Waking up this morning I had a news alert on my phone warning us that we were under a hurricane watch for Ida. What?!
When did this happen! I knew Ida was looming herself out in the Gulf, but now she wants to come my way? Eek! I have a Christmas party to plan! I don't have time to worry about a hurricane 2 1/2 weeks before Thanksgiving!
After calling my parents to let them know that Ida may be visiting us I made a list of the necessities to survive. Here are my favorite hurricane must haves:
Chocolate (preferably Reese's pb cup miniatures--you know, for the protein)
Diet Coke (if we don't have power I need to get caffeine in some form)
Spaghetti/Lasagna noodles (um, I'm blaming the cold on this one. Unsure of the reasoning)
Water (for those not drinking the Diet Coke which would be everyone except for moi)
Of course I put other things on the list. But those above were my faves....they have Chelle written all over them.
PS--just got another weather alert on the computer. Under hurricane warning now. Why am I kinda excited about this?! Not "I'm so happy I could sing" excited...it's hard to describe...
PS (again--and totally random, but they are on tv-again-as I type this...)--can someone please tell Jon Gosselin and his girlfriend that they aren't that important to be doing television interviews? Please? And how weird is it that she's giving an interview and he.is.right.there. hovering all over her. Ew. So over them. Them and the whole Sarah Palin/Levi Johnston (Playgirl?! Really??) saga!
