I'm doing well...

Hey there everyone! I miss all you guys soooo much and have missed seeing all of your creations...I have so much to catch up on!!! My family and I are safe and sound! We arrived back from Austin on Sunday @ noon. My brother and sister did not have power so we were all counting on my place to have power and WE DID!!! I was so happy I just wanted to cry!!! LOL!!! :D So everyone has been shacking up at my house till they receive power. My brother finally received power on Monday and my sister has yet to receive power. We are just hoping and praying that their power will be fully restored soon, I know it's hard for them.

After two days of no work I was finally able to come to work today...I was about to go stir crazy at home. And you probably think I got some major stamp time in but I just didn't feel like stamping...this storm just physically and mentally drained me...KWIM?!?! I work in Galveston and they aren't letting anyone onto the island, so I am at our Satellite office in Houston. Our Galveston office got about 2ft. of water in it and a group of workers have been trying to get it all cleaned up. The island still doesn't have electricity or running water so I will be working at our Satellite office for about a couple of weeks till the city gets back up and running...it may be even longer. I don't have internet access available at home yet, so I am typing this on my lunch break. I don't know when I will be able to post again, but I hope it's real soon!!! Thanks to everyone who said a prayer for us and was thinking about us...that really means so much to me!!! :D Hope to chat with you soon!!! Thanks for stopping by and take care!!!:D

P.S...So sad that I will miss the Bella Bash tonight, have fun ladies!!! :D


Much Love,

Jenn, I'm so so glad to hear from you! How wonderful that your family is all safe and sound and that you have power. If you think of anything we can do, please let me know. We are praying for you and for everyone there. I can't believe the footage we've seen and that the piers are gone. Oh my, Jenn, I just don't know what you'll see when you get back on the Island. I miss you, Friend!

Hope

I have been wondering if you faired the storm okay! Glad to hear that you and your family are well, and I will pray for everything to get back to as normal as possible.

I was so glad to get your email and find out that you were safe! I am sure life is a little crazy, but we all know you will be back with "stamps and all that jazz" soon! :-)

Stacey said...

Oh my goodness! So glad to hear that you are safe and sound! I just came back from Greece where we had pretty tropical storms (ie, pitch black sky at noon!) and I thought that was bad but then I read your post.... poor you. Just glad you and your family are home safe. Makes me realised just how lucky we are here in the UK! ~x~
