Surviving Sandy

Just in case anyone was concerned, we have managed to survive the Frankenstorm known as Sandy. Luckily, we didn't lose power at all, which is definitely a good thing, considering how horribly underprepared we are for that situation. Yes, I know I had at least a week's worth of warning to stock my emergency kit, but it just did not happen. I mean, I didn't even make it to the liquor store before the storm hit, so you can see how good I am at preparing for emergencies. However, we did have one bottle of wine (which was demolished last night), as well as a couple of flashlights left over from 4-H camp and a plethora of yankee candles. So, at the very least, we could make sure we didn't run into furniture (especially after all that wine), and the apartment would smell really nice. Also, having a Walking Dead marathon in the midst of a superstorm wasn't such a good idea, in hindsight. I made Matt watch an episode of New Girl with me before we went to bad, because I needed some happy in my life after all that flesh eating. 

It was actually quite nice to be home yesterday; Matt's weekend is Sunday-Monday, so we both really enjoyed the extra quality time together. I was not pleased when he had to go to work this morning, but I guess you can't have your cake and eat it too.

Unfortunately, I know that others didn't fare so well in the storm. One of Matt's co-workers, who basically lives down the street from us, had his roof collapse during the night, and there are loads and loads of people without power. Please continue to keep everyone affected by this monster storm in your thoughts and prayers. 

Since I haven't been to work at all this week, I have managed to accomplish some wedding planning tasks:
- My mom and I had a serious discussion about decorations
- Matt and I picked out the readings for the ceremony
- I addressed the invitations for the Bridesmaids Breakfast
- Planned out a tentative wedding day timeline to send to my coordinator

Look at me, being productive! I will be returning to work tomorrow, which means I have the rest of today to get even more things accomplished. Not sure if that will happen, considering my stubborn refusal to drag myself out of bed and put on real clothes, but I have high hopes for myself. 

Stay safe, warm, and dry, friends! 

p.s. While we fight flood waters up here, my parents are dealing with several inches of snow and the potential for blizzard-like conditions. That's what happens when you get a storm of epic proportions!
