Over it

I am so sick of everything. My employer thinks its employees have no life. Third shift change in three weeks. Two days off after 7 day straights. Lost one day to needing to adjust sleep schedual. I am so over it already. I think I'm over the husband. I'm over everything bad in my life. I so need to get back to New Orleans.

Finally things have settled down. Everyone from Florida Keys to Houston have returned home and the house is silent again. The in laws looked out and Ike missed the keys and brother only lost his fence in houston.
Just as people are heading home I am switched from the 6 am to 2 pm shift to the 10 pm to 6am shift. And the shift happens all within 24 hours I am so tired. I was going to make a trip to NOLA on my days off but I think I will catch up on sleep instead.

New Orleans avoids Ike

Ok, my in laws and friends are in keys and they got lucky and only got tropical storm strength winds. It also looks like Ike will not threaten New Olreans so I wont have any one visiting soon. I love having family and friends over but I am relieved all are well.

The couples shower went well. Many people came. Although I had to run home to Alabama the morning after to get ready for work and get the dogs on a schedual.

I start work tomorrow as 911 dispatcher here in Alabama. I am excited to have something to pass time while my husband is in Iraq.

got into new orleans Wednesday. Absolutely no traffic along the way which surprised me. My party for my cousins wedding is still on saturday. So much to do. I snuck this in by jumping onto a neighbors unsecured wireless since my aunt only has dial up. (can't believe people are still on dial up) Tomorrow I'm going around Quarter to purchase things to send the husband in Iraq. Amongst his request are Zapps, Tony's, and Creole mustard. Then I'll be having dinner with dad. We figure we'll drive around and see whats open.

no getting thru

Ok no surprise here, there is no getting thru to cell phones. tried to call dad who went thru the storm on the cape kennedy in the port of N.O. Haven't heard anything about the ship so I'm sure he's fine. Also can't get thru to the rest of the family or friends. I may come in when they open the area. I was suppost to host my cousins bridal shower Saturday but that will be postponed.

Been keeping tabs watching wwl streaming online. Thrilled the levees held and its only a matter of power outages and trees down.
