Friday before the stormFollow

What's everyone's weekend look like? Anyone going to get pulverized by Irene?


Seeing as this whole hurricane deal put a quick stop to my beach proposal plan, I went and did it this Wednesday. Made a nice dinner for us outside by our apartment pool (it's actually quite nice) under a flowery trellis thing. We had the whole thing to ourselves. It made for a nice setting, and a good surprise, I think.

So yup, we're happily engaged.

Looks like most mass transit is shutting down around NYC for the weekend. Between that and the miserable weather, so much for any elaborate post-engagement plans. Guess we'll have to entertain ourselves indoors, somehow. Smiley: wink2


So what's everyone else up to, before the internet goes down and state of emergency is declared?

We're gonna try and go to the county fair tonight. The rest of the weekend is just trying to stay safe and sane, cooped up inside. We're far enough upstate/inland to avoid the worst of the storm but there's always the threat of a tree knocking out power so there are steaks waiting to be grilled and plenty of charcoal.

It's supposed to completely miss us and sail west of us and drown Quebec (Thank you God). We'll see if that actually happens though.

gratz!

I'm in a ***** mood this weekend because I've been working for several months on a huge event for tomorrow that was cancelled due to Irene with no rain date. I also had a DR appointment today because despite eating healthy,living well, etc, Ive been gaining weight. The DR think it could be either thyroid or adrenal issues. I'll find out next week and hopefully have answers. I feel screwed though. I didnt even get a chance to enjoy bon bons to gain the weight Smiley: glare

So this weekend will be hanging out in my house, watching Irene skirt the area, organize the promo **** in my hallway and pack it away until next year, and host a pity party drinking water instead of wine.

Golfing on Saturday, then spending Sunday organizing my move the following weekend.

There will probably be some beer involved at some point in all that.

Driving down to the coast tonight. We are spending the weekend in Corpus Christi. Hitting up the beach on Saturday morning and cooking out by the pool with friends Saturday night. Sleeping it off Sunday morning then driving home to try and help the Whale shore up a playoff spot in the 3 on 3 beer league.

Thanks all. And bummer, DSD.

That reminds me...I should stock up on beer. I don't have the motivation to go out and hoard supplies like many are doing, but damned if I'll go through this whole weekend pinned indoors without beer.

Irene stuff is really ramping up. It's crazy when you look for flooding/wind/rain projections for your area and all that weather.com says is "SHIT'S GOING DOWN."

Smiley: um

Congrats Eske!

I'm too far inland for Irene to be getting to us. Which is kind of odd, most all east coast hurricanes generate some rain for us a day or two later, but there's not a drop forcast for us for the next 7 days.

As for what I'm doing, not much. Since my husband got a new job (he's now a property manager at a pretty nice apartment complex), I'm going tomorrow to help him clean up one of the units. I've been 2 other times to help clean and get them ready. He needs to rent them all so he can get a bonus Smiley: lol

Congratulations. Looks like I'll be spending the weekend indoors as well. Which, is fine with me.

Woot Congrats! Have you set a date yet?

We're supposed to get heavy wind/rain Sunday and whatever Irene has left in her to hit Sunday night.

Hurricanes tame quickly when they hit the bracing cold northerner water.

Still my husband just phoned and told me he just ran and refilled the generator. Smiley: smile

This post is the last thing I need to do before punching the proverbial time-clock (hah how sad is that when I refer to a forum post a work task??).

TGIF. Smiley: yippee

Nothing yet. I'm leaving it up to her, and she's still sorting out her opinions on wedding plans. It'll likely be something real small, probably within a 1-2 year window.

Fortunately, I'm quite a bit inland from Irene, but I might also stock up on beervodka. Never can be too safe! Smiley: nod

Other than that, have a pretty laid back weekend planned. Um... So basically I got nothing.

Grats Eske!

I live in a beach town. If the eye doesn't pass over us, we'll still likely be seeing some of the worst of it. Work was cancelled, because of a mandatory evacuation, so I'm off anyway. Too bad I'm not at school--that's where my PS3 is. D:

Grats Eske!

Youngest one has sleepover birthday party at a friend's place tonight. So hopefully that means Ray and I can have a semi-short date tonight.

Tomorrow, I have a continuing legal education class. Smiley: frown Ray's car is getting worked on so my credit card is already shrieking in protest. Cousin's anniversary party later that day.

Sunday, catching up on odds and ends and whatnot.

Ugh, I know the feeling. This whole week's paycheck for me is going to my credit card. And none of that was even spent on fun stuff. D:

The new house we just bought in the dreaded suburbs has two trees the are about 60 feet tall. We're probably 20 miles from the coast, I imagine we'll be fine, but we've put off homeowners insurance pictures until we finish updating our kitchen, so that could be exciting if we did have any damage.

Good luck and God bless to you East Coasters. We're in Michigan right now, spending the weekend at the lake (as in 'The' lake) and doing standard "my parents took me on a vacation to some small town" things. Right now it's fairly cool out so I'm sitting by the indoor pool while the older child gets his swim on.

I find it ridiculous that something named Irene is a thing to be feared. We really need to rethink how these things get named. As to the weekend, I have blissfully empty calendar. I think I'll spend a good portion of it sleeping.

You heard about Hurricane Dora right? I couldnt stop giggling every time it was on the news. Oh the fun I could have had with THAT one!

And it's going to drown Quebec. It really is a sign from God.
