Let the Good Times Roll

I spent most of today at work and my head is swimming with tropical storm vs. two feet of snow vs. thirty foot waves. I accomplished more than I expected, but the path of the storm is so uncertain and so many details are so out of the norm that it's hard  impossible to predict the next twenty four hours, let alone the next few days. Thanks for the prayers and good wishes. They are so appreciated. Please send a few for the little beach community I visited last Sunday. It sits between a bay and the Atlantic Ocean and is exposed to wind and waves. My friends can use lots of prayers for their beach cottage.

Last spring my online buddies and I planned our annual fall get-away. We were in Chicago last year and Memphis the year before. This year (hope, hope, hope there will be flights) we leave on Thursday for the town of beignets and coffee...

New Orleans!

I booked the trip last May, not quite sure that I would be able to go and it was an incentive -- among others -- in my recovery. Visiting New Orleans and spending time with my dear friends was a great motivation through physical therapy. I have the go-ahead from my neurosurgeon and have been thinking about what to pack and what we will do. I am praying that the airport will be open, flights will be taking off and our plans will become a fun reality. 

Tomorrow I have theater tickets to see "The Heiress." It stars Jessica Chastain, who played the role of Celia Foote in "The Help." I've been looking forward to this for two months and hurricane or no hurricane I am seeing this play!

Friends on the east coast, stay dry and safe! Friends who live everywhere else, have a great Sunday!

It sounds like a wonderful trip and it would definitely be an incentive!

I've been praying for all affected by this storm. Hope you get to enjoy the play and that you can enjoy New Orleans too. That is one place I have been. I love those beignets!

Sending the best to you, Buttercup, as this storm heads in your direction. Hopefully you will be able to make that trip to New Orleans!

Prayers are heading your way as the storm is still making it's way up the coast. Looks like we might get, at the most, high winds today and rain on Tuesday but NYC won't be so lucky. Stay safe!

I'm sure you'll have lots of fun at the theater, it sounds like it will be a fantastic show.

I hope you stay safe through the storm!

There is something very ironic about this! You plan to go to New Orleans after Hurricane Week in NYC. I'm hoping the subways don't flood, the transportation systems gets up and running quickly and you have a great trip!
PS: Can't say that I'm terribly sad that schools are cancelled Monday.

I hope you stay safe in the storm.
