rinky dinky thunderstorm vs. hurricane irene

          Who would have guessed that flooding would be a bigger threat during a storm than a whirling twirling hurricane. I sure didn't. A pretty severe thunderstorm went through our area last night. The weather station reported more than 1200+ lightning bolts in just an hour's time. Driving home last night after a long day at my grandmother's house, I receive a phone call from Chris saying  that his car was stuck in waist-deep water.

september marks one year

        My anxiety seems to be at an all time high these days. Chris, myself and our daughter, Elizabeth, are still living at his parent's house. It's been one year since I moved in and one year since I've wanted to move out. One year since I found out I was pregnant at 17 and one year since I realized my life would never be the same. I want change. I crave it. I long for it. We are hoping to buy a house soon. Almost have the 15% for a down payment. It just seems as if we are never going to have our own life. With Elizabeth being almost 5 months old, she's going to start getting mobile soon and at his parent's house, we just don't have the room for it.
