So, I was pretty surprised when my mom made a comment about Hurricane Rita the other day (was it satuday or sunday? one of those days.). My 1st reaction was "Omg we are already on R? WTF I have been out of touch with the weather channel for too long!" then my second thought was "Hey, Hurricane Rita... Rita...Repulsa! HURRICANE RITA REPLUSA LMAO" then at last my final thought was "......................omfg this isn't good".
So I've been keeping tabs on the news since about Monday when I found out and watched as it progressed over Florida from a Tropical storm to a Cat1 to a Cat2 and then today I check the news and bam its a cat4. Wow. It's like Katrina but for the Texans this time! I feel REALLY sorry for the New Orleans people who just moved here from there and suddenly they're gonna loose everything again in another hurricane. This is exactly the reason why I want to move farther inland. Sure I love the ocean and the beach and I love Houston but Hurricanes are freaking CRAZY (yet so amazingly beautiful) things and I just don't like em. If I don't live somewhere in the northwest or something I'll just hightail it to another country. :/ I'm realllly loving France. :D As far as I know they don't get hurricanes. ;D
But I digress. Today is hectic. I went to sleep late last night (almost 3:30 am) because I was hoping my best friend would sign back on AIM (she got kicked off). She didn't and finally I was too tired and so I crashed because I have to get up at 7:45 when my mom leaves for work in the mornings. ~_~; So I'm asleep and I fall asleep and I actually DON'T HAVE TROUBLE GETTING TO SLEEP FOR ONCE (that's it, from now on "Gankutsuou OST- We Were Lovers" is my bedtime song.) and I sleep through the night only waking up here and there for a moment to sleepily look at the clock and look around to see whats going on. So then anyway, I'm sleeping. I'm getting good sleep and as far as I can remember I'm probably dreaming though I don't know what of. ~_~; So then I start hearing my name being called and I finally wake up to find its 7:40 am and my mom is on the other side of my door yelling for me. ~_~ Apparently my dog rolled in something foul.
So I opened my door cuz i didnt know what was going on and the dog freaking runs into my room and crawls under my bed and im like OMFG NOOoooooooooooooooooo. So now Im trying to coax the dog out of under the bed and It's not working. ALl the while my room is starting to reak from the stench of dead animals my dog has been rolling in. ~_~; So finally, after much hardness and strife I manage to get the dog out by leaving my room, turning off the light and shutting the door so he would come out. (Terry (dog) = doesnt like bieng left alone in dark shut rooms) So hes out and my room smells and my mom leaves for work and I begin the lovely task of bathing my dog in the bathtub at 8 am in the morning while listening to the freaking news for information and updates on Hurricane Repulsa. ~_~;
So now Terry is all clean and smells semi nicely (I used my shampoo/conditioner in one on him he should ~_~+). Ive eaten my breakfast and watched the news and then my mom calls. ~.~ She says she was on the freeway with my cousin's mom (her cousin, they work together at the same place so they carpool), and there's freaking MILITARY CONVOYS driving about. She said on the phone that seeing those conveys made the whole thing "hit home". So she gets to work and they tell her shes getting I think tomorrow off and Friday. ~_~ Because of the hurricane. So she tells me to bathe Tenchi (Our older, bigger dog.) so he can go with us in our car to my grandpas. THIS IS GOING TO BE UBER AMOUNTS OF FUN. ~_~; The dog is old, heavy and doesnt like baths. ~_________~ AND IM DOING IT ALONE. I'm going to wake up my bro and make him help me. ~_~;
So anyway. Today I get to bathe Tenchi, wash the dishes, finish the laundry, get my brother to fold the already dried laundry. ~_~ Finish moving around the bowls of ice in the ice box and fill up containers with water. THEN I get to start worrying about what i'm going to take with me when we leave. ~_~; I hope we can make it back for some trips because i dunno what all i can take.
This is basicly the most important things Im worrying about taking in the 1st draft of stuff we can take with us when we leave:
- My Computer Tower and my Brothers computer tower. I have unreplaceable stuff on these computers so they are going with me.
- My CDs, unreplaceable stuff on these CDs.
- My paperwork (might have to come back for most of these, but a good amount will come with me). I cant loose this stuff. Ive had novels Ive been writing since iwas a fucking 12 year old in some of these boxes. I NEED Them as they will be my future.
- important objects I hold dear. Short list of examples: My Malik scroll, my gifts from Micha, my egyptian decorations.
- Art supplies because I'm gonna have alot of drawing to do. ~_~;
I told my grandma to rent a uhaul but she said no! I said lets get a truck but they said its not gonna hit! NO ONE FUCKING LISTENS TO ME BECAUSE APPARENTLY TO THEM I'M STILL "JUST A KID" WHEN IM FUCKING 22 YEARS OLD. I seriously wish I had a truck so I could freaking pile in more stuff to take, put the dogs in the truck with me and go. -.-; If i loose my stuff I'm going to move in with Micha, she already said I could live with her. >.<;
So anyway, you might be wondering exactly where we are going? We are going up to my grandfather's house in Marque (can't spell that haha), Texas. He lives out in the country and he never actually uses his house anymore. Well technically he lives in Paris, Texas with his new wife and his house in the country lays empty for the most of the time. So me, my mom, my brother, my grandmother and my uncle's sister Ella and her two grandkids (my grand cousin...? I think) are all going to pile in our cars and go to the same place. I hope that it will be enough room for all of us there. There's 3 bedrooms: My Grandpa's room, and the two guest rooms + The living room and if im not mistaken a airmatress. We go up there every christmas for Xmas time with all the family. :) it will be nice to be up there though without SOME FAMILY there. :D You dont have to know what im talking about because i know who im talking about and its relaxing to get to stay in the "GRANDKIDS HOUSE". -.- I never get to go there.
BUT IM TRIALING OFF SUBJECT.
POINT.IS. I wanna save as much stuff of mine as I can so i better start my chores and get to packing. Im gonna miss anytihng we loose but I kinda doubt im gonna loose anything. I'm really hoping the house is going to stay up. I mean, its a trailor (double wide), so itcould suffer winddamage, but im feelin' it'll survive, if all goes well.
Its the looters im afraid of
and our neighborhood is full of low-lifes if you know what i mean. >.>
I dont want to be looted. ;3;
I think my mom said we can take the PCs with us and hook them up at my grandpas. I'll most likely be using aol though, so if I do manage to get online It'll be with dial up. ~_~ If not then I just wont be online for a few days. This really sucks. I hope micha gets on tonight because when she does im gonna want her phone number so i can try and call her or she can call me or something. I'm going to be sad if I cant talk to her. ~_~;
well gotta go, stuff to do!!
Note to self: Ask mom to take me to store for head phones and make CD of music to listen to while away from PC. >.< MUST HAVE GANKUTUSOU.
hehe, I just realised that while im gone I'll totally be able to draw that poster of Edmond I wanted to draw. ~_~ Yatta.
