Come on Irene!

I live in Eastern CT. We got lots of wind for Hurricane Irene. I don't expect power back until Tuesay Sept 6th @ 6pm. For the record, I lost power early Sunday morning on Aug 28th. Yes, Ladies and gentlemen. That is over 1 week without power. I do not know what I would do if I wasn't staying a friends house. Since I don't live in the rich part of the state, I don't have power. Yellow is with less than 1% outage.

This week has been rough. The gym only got power back Wed night. I ran only once this week and no gym. Need to get back into my work out routine. I haven't been eating great. I did run once this week but it wasn't great.

Got the dress for my friends wedding last night. Fits great. I think I could have gone a size smaller actually. My friend disagrees but it feels big in lots of places. And Spanx can hide a lot ;)

I am trying really hard not to be whiney but I miss my house :(

No Power No Water That is a problem!

Hurricane Irene hit on Sunday. I lost power early Sunday morning and it still hasn't come back. Today is Wednesday. Since I have a well and not city water I also don't have water. I am staying at a friends with my dog because I need to shower I am such a city girl it isn't funny. I am going back to my place today after work to check on the cat. I keep hearing different estimates of when I might get power back. The gym down the street is 2-7 days. This is not a good sign.

I did go for a run in my friends neighborhood last night. I don't know all the side streets so I did a loop that was .89 miles. Since it wasn't that far I decided to do another loop. This time her 13 yr daughter and the girls across the street decided to join me. Then my friend decided to walk her dog on the same loop. Fun night of excercise. I think the girls may join me running while I am there. I really want my power back. I miss place and my cat. The dog is with me since my dog and my friend's son are BFF's. It's pretty darn cute.

I never realized how much I took running water for granted.
