My Brain's Abuzz

Lots to do and lots to think about.

The Clintons have redeemed themselves in my eyes. Their speeches at the Democratic Convention were rousing and showed real support for Barack Obama. I love Bill Clinton but found myself continually disappointed during the primaries by the tactics of the Clinton campaign as Hillary battled Barack Obama for the nomination. I had my fingers crossed that Bill would not show his disappointment over Hillary's loss to Barack. But tonight Bill was on message and on fire as he showed his full support for Barack Obama's candidacy. I was also impressed by the speeches by Beau Biden and Joe Biden. And then I got giddy like a fan girl when Barack Obama stepped on stage to embrace Joe Biden and acknowledge the delegates. A great night of conventioneering!

I was glad to hear Bill Clinton mention Hurricane Katrina during his speech as Tropical Storm Gustav is churning his way toward the Gulf of Mexico. Everyone I know is worried and we are preparing for another potential evacuation. We are hoping that we don't have to actually follow through with leaving our homes once again but we are ready if need be. I just hung up decorative plates and pictures in my kitchen last month after almost three years and it's unnerving to think that my little house may be damaged so soon after getting things back to normal. We will evacuate on Sunday to Jackson, MS if we must but I have my fingers crossed and my anti-hurricane shoo box altar working its mojo. Gustav is verboten in these parts!

We have reservations in Memphis, hopefully we won't have to use them!

Trying to be rational and practical. I keep thinking if we must do this again, we can handle it. I just don't want to have to do it all again as my I stomp my mental feet in a mini interior tantrum!!!

Thanks honey! We've been lucky the last two hurricane seasons so we've had a break from all this drama. I'm just making the preparations I can now as we wait for the storm to do whatever it's going to do.

You can bring Rocky and Bess and Juannie and come here and if you can't get home right away at least he will be in the world domination headquarters of his employer and Rocky and Bess can play with Bailey...

p.s. I was a walking altar today with my SAVE NOLA NOW purple-green-gold baller band caught from a float at Mardi Gras 2006, my water-meter cover earrings, and a necklace made by a little girl whose mom was selling fancier necklaces at the parish fair at Our Lady of Good Counsel in 2006; its pendant has a picture of the Sacred Heart with pressed flowers and the necklace itself is glass beads.

and by "come here" I mean to stay with us, of course, not just to my town.

Thanks so much for the invitation! We are set to go to Jackson if we do have to leave. And keep all that gris gris going so that Gustav and now Hanna follow paths that causes little damage for anyone.
