Eye Opener

I've been having a really difficult time getting back into the swing of things since the holidays. Have you, too? I had a lingering cold/flu bug of which the effects I still felt long after I was all better. Then I had an allergy flair-up and a bout of insomnia that lasted about a week. It's enough to take a serious toll on a girl!

Today is the first day since before the holidays that I woke up reasonably rested and feeling normal (knock on wood!). I'm looking around and noticing how my home appears to be a little neglected and in need of some serious TLC.

Also, with the eye opener of the Haiti quake, I've realized that my home also needs some earthquake preparedness. So this weekend is a home weekend- cleaning, organizing and supply stocking. Has the situation in Haiti caused you to rethink things in any respect?

  9. Thanks for mentioning that because that really got me thinking. I take for granted all the things I have and some days I come home and think uggg I've had such a bad day, but i don't even know what a bad day is...the people in Haiti do though and I feel greatly for them.

  10. I think the tragedy in Haiti puts everything in perspective...I can have a crappy day of things going wrong but it does not compare to the devastation of hundreds of thousands of people dying. Good God.

  11. Hope your feeling better and getting back into the "Swing" of things....I have had a hard time as well. I JUST started taking down my Christmas decorations...ummmm....late night. Ugh.
    Since you live in Cali..."YES" most wholeheartedly you must be prepared for an earthquake...have the proper supplies on had that you may need for an emergency of any type.
    We live in Louisiana so we do this as well...it's crazy not to.
    God Bless the Haitians....so sad.

  12. Not rethinking anything as I don't live in an earthquake area. But still...! Events like this always tend to open my eyes a little wider.

  19. We've had a lot of small earthquakes in the Bay Area lately ... which is always a reminder. I go back and forth between wanting to obsessively prepare (like the forty-gallon drums of water my parents used to keep in the garage) and feeling like there's nothing I can do. Which is lame.

    Glad you're startin to feel better!
