WE ARE ALL OKAY!!!

just wanted to take a quick minute to let ya'll know that we are all safe. my house had very, very minor damage to it compared to others. me, the kiddos, and my mom were in tallahassee, florida when the storm hit while i had to leave mike behind to deal with the devistation. we got back on wednesday (on mikey's bday) to no power or phones. driving around is surreal. you look at things and see that it is nothing like it was before. i'm still trying to take it all in and think "this really did happen here". we got electricity at our house yesterday so we packed up our things from mom's and headed back here. now its time to try and get back to normal. i have to go back to work tomorrow and help out at the police department so our officers (many of whom lost their homes) can get paid.

sorry that this post really doesn't make much sense, but i promise that later i will post a better post and a good bit of pictures.

i also want to say thank you for all your posts, emails, and text messages i got showing your thoughts and prayers. that means SO MUCH to me, i can't even express it in words. that people who have never met me in real life care and are concerned for my family's safety. i wish you guys were all near so i can give you a big hug!!

thanks again.


lotsa, lotsa luv and hugs,

elizabeth
