Bermuda Vacation 2010: Day 18 – Back Home

Now THAT's what I call hurricane damage...!!

I had no idea that hurricane damage would reach as far as Oklahoma!  Wow…did you see that pile of stuff!  It took me ALL day to  get clean clothes in their proper place, dirty clothes through the washer, suitcases stored away and the mail sorted through.  I’m almost sure that Igor came home in one of those suitcases….it was devastating.

But, back to reality we are…our biological clocks are still on Bermuda time..waking at 5:30 a.m. to figure out that we’re up too early!

Back on “the rock”, Mom & Tim finally have power.  Belco arrived Thursday afternoon around 4:45 p.m. to start repairs and by 8:00 p.m. they had electricity again.

In the meantime, The Royal Gazette called Mom wanting to interview her for an article about her power outage.  Remember that Darin had called Belco telling them a “senior citizen with a handicapped son” needed power.  Well, Tina posted a similar comment on Facebook that got picked up by The Royal Gazette and the next thing we know Mom’s being interviewed for a story and they’re asking to use a picture of the kids off the Blog!

Mom was already in the newspaper once this week.  Although they incorrectly spelled her name, she was featured in an article complaining about the bus service being suspended on Tuesday.

This is getting interesting!!

Back home, we’re just trying to stay out of trouble.  Braeden & Brock had an orthodontist appointment to get their braces ready for their upcoming surgery.  They’ll have their wisdom teeth extracted in October and then their jaw surgery in December.  Jacob had a broken retainer, so that took time to address.  Jesse had mowing to do…lots of mowing.  Ian had some fishing to do (I know..tough life) so we went to the bait shop and bought some worms and some minnows.  He didn’t catch anything but it’s always fun to talk about the ones that got away.  Ali, well, she’s just happy to be home to ride her bike and play with her toys.

I’m off to work tomorrow.  We have a couple of surgeries scheduled so I’m diving back in hand-first!  That was funny….hand-first!  I just thought of that.

Darin is meeting a mason later today to discuss the new tile for our new addition.  If all goes well, we might be moved into our new portion of the house in   4-6 weeks!  That is good news.

Ruthie…she’s good.  The horses are good. The goats are good.  The chickens are good and laying lots of eggs.  The donkey is good.  The cats are good.  I’m thinking we’re all just pretty good.
