After the Storm

I know my blogging has been sporadic at best this past year. Most often it's just been that life has gotten in the way and I haven't taken the time to blog. I wish I could say that was the case once again.

As you may have seen on the news, three weeks ago Louisiana experienced historic flooding. Sadly flooding that impacted us. We left our home Saturday, August 13, when water was starting to enter. There's quite a story there, one I'll have to write down eventually. But the end resort is that we spent one night in a shelter in a middle school gym and since then have been living with my mother-in-law and father-in-law.

By Wednesday, the waters had finally receded enough to where we were able to get back to the house where we discovered our home had taken in a couple of feet of water and both of our cars were flooded. We were lucky in some ways because most of our kitchen supplies and clothes were able to be salvaged. But so much else is gone, almost all of our books (and I'm sure you can imagine how many those were), toys, furniture, pillows, towels, board games, and so on and so on. I'm not sure when I'll be back with more updates since I'm having to type this out on my iPad (since both of our computers were also lost), but hopefully I'll be back soon with better news.
