Well from what we've heard Hurricane Irene wasn't the damaging storm that was anticipated, thank goodness! We are on the way on home from our mini-vaca in Raleigh, which was truly nice. Over the past few years, with our finances in the trash, we have had to forego vacations. So we ate yummy food at some fab resturants (another luxury we have done without); swam in the Marriott's indoor/outdoor pool and had a blast swimming in the rain; watched lots of movies; stayed up late, slept in, skipped breakfast, and went straight to lunch!
We've heard the yard is a wreck but the house is safe. We'll know soon enough. But at least we're safe and relaxed...couldn't have asked for a better outcome!
