Now I'm a Nitty.Gritty. ball of nerves...,

Thanks to all those comments for Chip yesterday. I think you all proved us both wrong. I thought there were like 22 of you out there. Now I'm a wreck thinking I could be telling 75 people a bunch of baloney everyday! Yikes! At least now I know I have a good start for when I rally for votes for President in 2008. I should start designing my 'Nitty.Gritty. for President' buttons and bumper stickers now.
I apologize to all you die-hards that I posted so late today, but our power was out for the past 18 hours. I have learned that my family and I would not have made very good Hurricane Katrina victims. We were starting to lose it by mid-afternoon today. You'd think it would be fun to step back in time to when life was simpler without all the electronic gadgets we have around the house. Instead, I was getting crabby because I couldn't cook anything in my kitchen, I couldn't vacuum or do laundry, and to top it off I couldn't blog, because the battery was dead on the computer. It was beginning to get ugly around here- attitudes were starting to show, and we were getting hot and crabby without our air-conditioning.
Just in time, though, our electricity came on this evening, and life is back to normal. I never thought I'd be so happy to throw clothes in the wash machine and load the dishwasher, but it felt good tonight.
I don't know that Chip's had a chance to read all his comments. I've scrolled through them, and I have to admit, I was surprised quite a bit...and even happier that most of you read and never comment. If I had 70 comments everyday, I'd never get a thing done around here! But, thank you for all the affirmation, and even some over-the-top compliments. I'm probably not nearly as wonderful in real-life as I am on my blog. Never-the-less, I think some of you would still vote for me as President. =)

I found your blog through Whitney's blog and have been researching your tragedy and reading your blogs(past and present) for a couple of weeks now. You are an awesome lady! I love your zest for life and I plan to return to your blog for inspiration as often as I have time. God is Good!
