I'm still here, just barely. I'll be seeing you all soon, though. I hope you are all doing well. I've been round your places, but I have a short time limit here, so I am not able to comment as much as I like.

I really appreciate all of your support. It means a lot. Cleanup is starting, although all I have is a few branches, really. It should be okay. I'll likely go volunteer on my days off, there's a few places that were hit pretty hard in my town.

On the upside, I had lunch with my aunt A yesterday and it was really nice. It was good to see her, and I've been spending a lot of time with her and her girls lately. Its nice to have family members I can talk to, and that I can be friends with. My mom isnt talking to me right now, or she wasn't since Valentines, when I told her it was not appropriate for her to "drop by" at 9:30pm, especially because Beloved was sick. She hung up on me before I could schedule a raincheck. She phoned and left a message the other day [sometime last week, I think?] but I a not calling her back. It sounds petulant, but I left her no less than 1 message a day for a week after the incident, and if she is just now calling she wants something from me, and I haven't the time.

Working my first night shift tonight, new trainer, so it should be interesting. Liked my old one really well, I hope this one is just as nice.

Right. Miss you all. Still thinking of you.

I'll be back soon.

I'm relieved that you've sustained no worse damage than a couple of fallen branches. Good to know that you're ok. Sorry to hear about the tension with your mother, but I'm glad you have your aunt to talk to.

Best of luck with the new trainer!

So glad to hear you made it through the storms, Alecya!

I heard an older man his story on the news how a year or two ago, his home was completely demolished by a tornado, but he rebuilt...but last week, this new home, built where the former once stood, was completely destroyed by another twister! What are the odds?! Oh, I felt so bad. He says he will be constructing a new home in a different location...

Hope you're okay AG. Sorry I've not been around to be more supportive, but I've been caught in my own storm.

I'll drop you an e-mail.

Damn, girl--I leave Bloggovia for a few days and look what happens!! Glad you're okay--what an ordeal! I've always been petrified of tornadoes as well--when I was a kid, I'd tear through the house every time a tornado warning was announced, gathering up my most precious possessions, and then scoot down into the basement closet where it was "safe". I was a strange child.

Hang in there, kiddo--it's bound to get better.

... the odds, if you build your home where tornados go, are pretty high.

those who dont learn the mistakes of the past are doomed to build homes in tornado flightpaths.
