Gustav

So, I have been waiting and waiting for this hurricane to get closer so I will know what to do. Mr. Cowboy doesn't want to leave, as of right now. He is thinking the storm will stay east and then we won't get much of the bad stuff. It will be down to a category 2 storm and we can hold that out here.

I do believe that everyone who is living on the Gulf Coast of Louisiana is going to get some piece of this storm. If I want to get out of the storm's way I will most likely have to drive about 5 to 6 hours north, or east, or west. Mr. Cowboy wants me to go to Katy, Texas. I don't think that is safe enough. If the storm takes a western turn then I will be a sitting duck. As of right now we are on the west side of the storm. The west side is the good side. It doesn't have a lot of the rain and tornadoes. I would prefer not to see any tornadoes. I drove 30 minutes today to pick up a man that goes to church with us. He is from Mexico and barely speaks any English. I am very rusty with my Spanish. Some how we have been communicating. He is very nice and very grateful for us coming and getting him. He was living in a trailer. So, he will stay here with Mr. Cowboy, or he will evacuate with me and the kidos. I will know what to do tomorrow. I am packing bags tonight. I figure if I pack my bags then the storm will stay east. I pray it stays east.

As of right now, I'm thinking we'll be ok. I've resigned myself to just staying home. Plus, we have people coming to stay with us too. I'm praying for a more easterly path as well. I feel bad for wishing it on someone else though! lol
You know how I am, with my social anxieties! I can't even imagine them not letting me come home and having to stay somewhere for days and days. EEK! I would go crazy! A hotel room wouldn't be so bad but a shelter, ICK!

I cant imagine living a place with weather like that! I'd be running at the slightest wind. The worst we get here in Canada is a snow storm (but we just sit inside by the fire and drink hot chocolate!)Be safe. Cute blog, btw, I'll be back.

BTW-your cake was very beautiful and little cowpokette is so very lucky to have such a wonderful mom.;)

I used to love to make cakes of Megan's b-day's when she was little too. No one ever looks back and thinks anything other than it was a wonderful day and how special that cake was!!!
