We are HOME!

After 13 days, we are in our home again. With electricity. And cable. And internet connectivity. It is heavenly.

I have lots to write about. There are thoughts that have been trying to claw their way out of my brain for almost two weeks now, keeping me up at night while I turn them over in my mind. Writing--BLOGGING--has become such an important coping mechanism and processing tool for me, suddenly being without it at a time like this was strange. There is, of course, KayTar's progressive hearing loss and what that entails, as well as the decisions being made about surgeries and such, and I haven't had the time or space to really think it through. Unfortunately, tonight I don't have the energy or mental reserves to write anything of note. Tomorrow, she has a repeat hearing test to confirm the additional loss. I'm sure I'll have much more to say after that is said and done.

For now, though, I leave you with Evacuation Photos, then and now.
