Go East, Irene

"By failing to prepare you are preparing to fail." — Benjamin Fanklin

Looks like Hurricane Irene is tracking just right to hit us head on... granted it will only be a "1" hurricane, but even so, they're predicting high winds and 6 - 12" of rain. That's a LOT of water.

We'll be fine. We have no trees close enough to the house to hit us, save one. We have a generator. Plenty of food and water. But I'd really prefer NOT to lose power.


Earthquakes. Hurricanes. Tornadoes.

God is really displeased with the northeast right now.


Yesterday, when we returned from the movies (LOVE Regal Family Film Festival) to find what looked like an exploded dog in the room with Dakota. There were piles of fur everywhere!!

I took her outside to spray more hot spot stuff on her, lifted her head and her throat was totally naked and bright red. So ... off to the vet we went.

She has bare spots on her head, her throat, her back legs ... rash is pretty much 100%. She has an ear infection from the scratching, too. So, she got a steroid shot and ear ointment.

She's feeling better today. Not well, but better. A little.

Now we just need a good, hard frost.


You Are Quiet

You focus on fantasy more than reality. You have your head in the clouds.

You're incredibly introverted and introspective. You live inside your head, and it's a pretty comfortable place to be.

You may seem quiet and withdrawn, but you're paying attention to every single thing around you.

You are secretly sensitive, but you often put up a front. Shy and private, you yearn for security.

Um ... maybe 50/50...

I'm glad you're prepaired for the hurricane. If something like that were to hit me, I would be stranded. I have no food in the fridge, a flashlight with dead batteries, and a few big trees by the house. I guess it's time to buy some food and batteries.

That sucks about Dakota. I hope she feels better. My dog gets shots for his allergies too.

Poor Dakota. Sometimes you have to go for the hard drugs when nothing will do. It's got to be sheer misery for her to be so itchy.

Having been through one hurricane, I'm not eager to ever go through another. I hope y'all are safe and don't lose power!
Poor puppy! I hope Dakota feels better soon. Gentle hugs for Dakota!

You Are Comfortable in Your Own Skin: You are very idealistic. You really truly want what's best for the world.
You can't fall in love with just anyone at any time. Everything needs to align for you.
You have a strong sense of right and wrong. You are a justice enforcer.
You are interested in all types of people. You find almost everyone to be compelling.

About 90% correct. *g*

I hope your day goes well!
