Back to work!

So today I went back to work after a weeklong, at-home vacation with my husband, celebrating our first anniversary. Thankfully the day went quickly. However, the company I work for has clients in the Houston/Galveston, TX area (among the hardest hit by Ike), and that's one of my main areas, Houston.

About half of them on the list have no power yet and a few still remain closed. Some are closed for a couple of weeks. Even though the storm made landfall as a category 2, Ike's devastation is incredible. All I know is that I am praying for the TX coast to return to normal as soon as possible.

That ties into the anniversary celebration. We had planned to go to Houston. Unfortunately, those plans washed out (no pun intended). Evacuations to Austin and even San Antonio made even those options non-viable, as we were concerned about overcrowding. So.... we stayed home. Good choice, although not as planned. We pretty much hung out, did some errands and even painted a bedroom in the house and planted a tree and a few new shrubs. It was nice to return to work refreshed, and the new, cool weather helped.

As for the rest of things, they are pretty normal. For those who don't know us, I know you're thinking, "WTH?" LOL Well since I unfortunately can't seem to import old blogs from my Myspace (which I still have and plan to keep, if you are wondering), I will share a little of my basics here and there in my future posts.

First off, the pe(s)ts. Crazy Lizzie, Inspector Keely (cats) and Goofy Bernie (dog, sorry no pic of the pup on the puter yet but I promise I will get one). The one on the top is Lizzie ("WASH ME!") and the bottom is Keely (taken in my apartment over a year ago.. *sigh* can't find the better pics!).

I promise, I will get a picture of the dog on here... one day. Even if it kills me.

Happy Anniversary!!!! Sorry your plans didn't go through as expected, but the best laid plans never do! At least you were together!
