Capacity

My capacity for calm, reason, and kindness in the face of the inconvenience of losing my electricity and being displaced is, apparently, 9 days. Good thing the good guys from Georgia Power showed up at 2:00 this afternoon and restored my power. My sanity was returned to me immediately.

I'm happily blogging from my warm(ing) apartment, on my own internet connection, music blaring in the background, with the world's clingiest cat resting on my chest!

Home, sweet home!

I have a whole new appreciation for St. Casserole and those whose experience of loss and displacement after Katrina was far worse than what we've had here, and truly sorry it took my own experience of this kind of storm damage to gain such awareness.

ETA: Thanks for your prayers, thoughts and good wishes this past week!
