I completely lost track of time while dealing with the lack of power at home. I finally realized it was November when ConEd gave us an estimated power restoration time as Nov, 4th. Of course that didn’t happen and we’re still without power. It’s been a week now. A new date was said to be tomorrow by 11 pm. However, rumors are the real date is Nov 9th. At this point we don’t want to keep our hopes up. We’re just trying to make the best out of this situation and focus on keeping the kids nice and warm. After all, losing power is nothing compared to losing your possessions, or even worse losing a loved one. Without power and all, we are the lucky ones. And we’re thankful for that.
The house is a mess but I’m trying to get ready for some upcoming events. L’s birthday party, which I think we’ll change for a later day, a trip to Boston for Thanksgiving, and the Holidays. I can’t believe it’s almost December again! It’s going to be a bittersweet Holiday season, though. My family is coming to spend the Holidays with us, but my sister and brother-in-law, due to work schedules, won’t be able to make it this time. It’s sucks we won’t be able to be all together, especially for Christmas. But we’ll try to handle it as best we can and I’m sure we’ll have a great time.

All media has covered all the devastation Sandy has caused here in the East Coast. But let’s not forget that before Sandy hit the States, it slammed the Caribbean, causing lots of destruction there, too. There are many organizations trying to bring some relief to the affected areas, International Medical Corps, Direct Relief, Red Cross, among others. Please, consider a donation.
Hope you all are safe and warm.
