Unfortunately myself and my fellow North Easterners are currently being affected by what has been named “Frankenstorm Sandy.” I honestly didn’t think this whole Frankenstorm was going to be a big deal, but after watching many news reports and hearing heavy winds picking up and banging against my house, I was finally convinced I should run down to Shop Rite for some supplies earlier today. We are prepared and have my house as ready as possible. I’m absolutely addicted to Yankee Candle so I didn’t have to splurge on candles since my house is already filled with fall scents such as pumpkin pie, and apple spice ! If I’m going to be in the dark, it should at least smell good! Unfortunately, I expect power and internet to go out (I’m shocked I’ve lasted this long without power, I’m usually the first to loose it)… so why not do a quick blog post while I sit and wait ? I’ve spent most of my day riding this storm, curled up on my couch in a comfy t-shirt that I’ve stolen from my boyfriend, catching up on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, enjoying an antioxidant mask by Hylunia, loading up on
junk food (womp womp) and reading fashion blogs by scented candle light. With all my guilty pleasure snacks all stockpiled and ready to go, I pulled out a few other rainy day essentials to enjoy. My favorite hurricane accessory thus far? Without a doubt, my fuzzy warm socks. I am also keeping my MacBook Air and iPhone plugged in at all times, so if and when the electricity goes out, I’ll still be able to blog and tweet before I loose contact with society. I keep thinking about online shopping but almost too distracted by the news for that. For some reason I keep noticing every store having hurricane sales? Weird. Not sure if thats sick or genius…
My 10am facial appointment booked in Rhinebeck tomorrow morning was obviously post-poned until next week, along with a dinner date with my friends. But I am thankful I haven’t had any water damage (yet, I don’t want to speak too soon) but my heart does go out to every one that is being affected by this disastrous Frankenstorm! Tons of my friends and family in NYC are dealing with crazy floods right now, I’m hearing there is so much damage, and can’t believe my eyes watching the news! Ugh! Sandy is not messing around.
All I can say is that my thoughts are with all of the people that have/are going to be affected by Sandy. Please show your support to them and the aftermath of this awful storm. Although, I suppose Sandy is forcing all of us to spend some extra time with our family, friends and/or loved ones. I must admit this storm put a stop to all of our everyday hustle and bustle and force us to bond and spend time together. Jeeze. Frankenstorm please go away, but in the meantime I guess I will cherish this time to hang with my man and furry babies 😉 Hoping all outdoor animals and strays found shelter and are safe. Also my dad who is stuck working in this severe weather. 😦
Hurricanes are stressful. Sit tight my beauties! If there is no power tomorrow, I will attempt to reorganize my closet…. again.. Ugh! Stay safe !
