Hurricane Sandy, Nor'easter Athena, & beautiful Baby B

What a two week span this has been. Clearly, it's been longer since I've last updated the blog. Long Island, NY and NJ were pummeled with Sandy's nasty presence. She left us wounded but certainly not broken for long. We will rebuild and once again be stronger than ever. I was blessed to fair well, the only things we lost was power. Power is something we can deal with when others lost it all. If you haven't seen, here are some of the pictures that show just what happened here.

Our ever so famous gas lines
It's been stressful, it's been hard. I am 8 1/2 months pregnant and I have been more stressed than I needed to be over what would/could happen to our home, loved ones and if and when we'd get power again. The gas shortage has me edgy too but it will pass. All things pass. And you become better, stronger and more prepared.

Our little babe is doing great, but I may have over done it. Too much stress, less water intake and doing way more than I should has landed me ordered semi bed rest and to drink lots of water. I am now seeing the doctor every other day to make sure things are okay. So far it's been a scary ride. I can not wait to meet our son. It's becoming more and more real with every passing day.

To my fellow New Yorkers, Long Islander and New Jerseyians (is there such a thing lol?), stay strong. God is watching over all of us. This is not permanent and life will return to all of us and be better than ever. For the rest of you reading my blog, pray for us. We need shelter, prayer, and love.
