On the road again

We are leaving beautiful Gulf Shores Alabama.

My in laws have power on at their house on the lake. They have no damage so we are going to stay there.

Their house is only an hour and a half away from our home instead of the ten hours it took us to get here.

Any of you who know me, know I am planner and this day to day stuff is beginning to get to me.

Our plan today is to drive to the lake. Then on Wednesday head over to our house. Assess the damage and get to work.

My mother in law, the angel that she is, has told us she will keep the boys while we go and get to work.

I am so thankful for this woman! What ever needs to be done she does it. I really don't want the boys around for several reasons.

1. I don't want them to see things so torn up. Our house is their comfort zone and I want to keep it that way for as long as possible.

2. The mosquitoes! After Hurricane Rita they were AWFUL! Friends say they are so much worse this time around.

I feel better having a plan. Even if it is only a two day plan.

Interpeeps, if any of you know a good way to calm this anxious feeling that has my poor stomach in a humongous knot again that doesn't involve alcohol please let me know.

On the bright side, I wanted to lose some weight and I think I just might have.

Last night I had anxiousness surrounding me because of several family situations. It felt like a 10pd weight on my chest. I kept saying...be anxious for nothing but in everything with prayers and supplication, let your request by made known to God( I recited each situation to Him) and the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your heart & mind in Christ Jesus.....It worked for me. I felt the stress leave me in a supernatural way! Praying for you still :)

Maybe some tea would help you feel less stressed. I listen to Enya when I am sad and I definitely cry. Crying always makes me feel so much better. I know you are already praying and talking to Jesus about your fear and anxiety. I am praying for you too. I am thankful your Mother In Law can help you. God will sustain you!
PS Losing weight is always exciting : )! Way to go....who cares if it was stress related!

I'm so glad you have a safe place to stay while you work on your house. I love what THE ROOST told you, plus good, slow, deep breaths help bring my blood pressure and stress level way down. Still praying for you.
