Update

I spoke to my husband. He is back at the station. They have a landline there, so he was able to call me. It really is true that I can go home Monday, collect as much shit as I can, and get the fuck out for a month. My tentative plan is to do that and then drive up to Pittsburgh to stay with my mom's sister. My husband has to work every single day which is actually probably a blessing because I now have no income. However, I plan to work as an independent contractor for a company out of DC doing deposition summaries so at least I will get a few dollars coming in. I am just afraid. And terrified. And scared. And feel so very alone. I am very used to my husband being here. He is like a big security blanket and now I am out flailing about with no security. It is very frightening. Please say prayers for us. I appreciate that.

Torrie - your emails are so sweet. More than anything, just send good thoughts for all of us.

Not many words that I can say to make one bit of difference in your life except there are many, many of us listening to you and who are poised to help a Southern Fried Gal. I'll keep checkin back to see if you need anything. Seriously.

I am very happy you and your husband are safe. It's an overwhelming situation. New Orleans and the entire Gulf coast are in my thoughts.

It will be ok. You built everything you had from a starting point, and now your just at a new starting point. Who knows, you may find a home you love more, a job you love more, a city you love more.

Your safe, your husband is safe, and being a hero to many, and its going to be all right.

I cant imagine processing everything your trying to deal with, take it in small doses and be easy with yourself.

I don't think there's too much to say other than I'm sorry. Mother Nature is a vicious bitch. I hope you can recover as much as possible.

SFG - My heart just goes out to you. I watch the news and I just can't believe the devistation that is going on down there. The most important thing is that you and hubby are safe. I am sorry he can't be with you, that must be really hard on you...but he is making a huge difference to many people doing what he does.

If there is ANYTHING I can do, let me know. I am all the way up in Colorado, but you are welcome in our home. My prayers are with you.

Email me if you need anything or need to vent:

God Bless.

You have the prayers. I just read through your recent posts to catch up. So good to hear your voice, even your ranting voice or your scared voice. So glad you're OK. I can't watch the news without crying. It looks like a nightmare. My friends from Mandeville went to Little Rock; I don't know if that side of the lake got any damage or what. Still relatives in NO I don't know about.
Take good care. I am glad that the Memphis people have been good. I am horrified at the looters, too. And I must say, I'm surprised. Like you, I understand the food, the water, even diapers. But the jeans, appliances, etc.? Shame on them. I thought people in that city were better than that. Maybe you knew they weren't. Very sad.

I agree with Sillnessa! Houston has lots of legal work and you could be close to hubby! We'll take care of you, don't worry. :) *big hugs*
