{August 29, 2019}   Hurricain, Not So Fun

So now we have a hurricain that may hit us. We have no idea until Saturday and everyone started losing their minds yesterday. Then this afternoon I get a text we are closing tomorrow so they can prep for it. I do not see where we really need to do anything for the shop but I guess they feel we need to.

I am not boarding my house up, I see no reason to the way it sits. I think it be a long shot for anything to fly into any of them. If something comes out of one of my tree’s it is going to hit my roof not my window. Bigger problems to worry about. But I’m really not worried. If it blows in under a 3 I am sitting in my house. If it comes more I have no idea where we are going to go or how we are going to get there.

I have to get 4 kids, two big dogs and two birds in my car. The dogs want to eat the birds. There is hardly room for the 4 kids. I told them everyone can take a few outfits of clothes and that is going to be it. One or two things they dont want to lose if we have room. I’m taking my dad and guns. They can take a blanket if we have room. I am so mad we don’t have my truck to even get out of here in. At least I would have room for the dogs and a few things.

I hope it don’t blow in here to strong. We have never had a direct hit but we get hit by the bands pretty bad.

My mom is all freaked out we have to leave and board the dogs and get a bunch of food. We are going to be without power for weeks. I am never without power more than a couple days.

She acts like I am hoarding money away I make so much. I am bleeding money right now. My rent is due Sunday, I have to pay it by Tuesday and I do not get another check until Wednesday. I am short a day this week from my day job since we are not working tomorrow. I am short Monday at both jobs because of the holiday and not getting to work. I was short my night job last week because of the thing at the kids school. That is $78 from being a whole weeks pay from my day job. If this storm messes things up to bad I may not get to work Tuesday and then I will be over a weeks pay I have lost.

To think I was excited the first of the month because I was going to have 9 paydays this month instead of the normal 8. That is gone now add the dog to the vet and whatever money this storm cost me. I can’t win. The last big one cost me over $1500 between missing work and money spent.

This year has been a bit like that for me too – no matter how hard I try, the money vanishes.



Every time I think okay there is a glimmer of light something blows it out. It stinks. I’m okay and will get by but I am tired of getting by.
