Ivan the Terrible

Well here in Alabama today we are all preparing for hurricane Ivan. Its amazing how fast bread and milk sell out in a disaster. Everyone is so concerned about the power being out for a long period of time, so why buy milk?? I must admit though, I bought into it all myself and was at Wal-Mart last night with the rest of the state of Alabama. So now I am prepared as I think I should be but not overly prepared--like the end of the world is upon us.

My boyfriend, Brandon, and I just had our house sided and new windows put in this past spring so I hope that nothing happens to it. Brandon says not to worry thats what homeowners insurance is for, but I dont even want the hassel of all that. We live on the top of a hill so I dont think there will be any flooding but the wind will be wipping around us. So now its just a waiting game. Waiting on anything is never fun, but waiting for a disaster is unsettling to say the least. Its the unexpected stuff thats never fun.

This evening when I get home from work I will post a few pictures of our house as 'before' pictures and finish this post. Then afterwards I will post a few 'after' pictures. I am crossing my fingers and saying a prayer that you will not be able to tell the differance between the 'before' and 'after' pictures.
