I doubt that after the havoc that a hurricane brought through this weekend, that the name Irene will be at the top of any baby name lists on the East Coast next year!
Thankfully we were spared any major damage here. We had some tree limbs down and a lawn full of leaves to clean up plus 20 hours without power, but some people fared much worse. We are so thankful that we are all okay and there was no major damage to our house/yard.
My mother-in-law was a huge help watching the kids while I was busy getting things ready for the storm and then cleaning up after the storm. And congratulations to her for making it through her first hurricane!
We’re now keeping our fingers crossed that the remainder of this hurricane season is a quiet one!
