Happiness is NOT Hurricane Matthew! Why yes, I hail from the south and we are currently in the path of the undecided and very unpredictable hurricane. This hurricane really does suck the joy and happy from oneself. Today was spent both in denial, laziness, work mode, then back to denial.
I know the hurricane is coming. It’s on so many tv channels and my phone is blowing up with weather notifications. However, it is kind of hard to wrap your head around such a massive storm heading your way. The Bees and I are not evacuating until it is mandatory. Right now it looks like we will be okay but you never know. Plus I’m terrified the house down the street won’t secure their belongings. I don’t care to have a grill in my living room. That is for sure.
This evening was spent scrolling on Instrgram and Facebook and seeing all my friends and family board up their houses with plywood or put on the hurricane shutters. I did none of that. Mostly because I knew it would go bad. Plus my dad told me I’d be okay. I will blame him when it goes south. I’m praying we will be fine.
So yes, the happiness of life is put on pause while we all do a mini panic race to the grocery store for water or random items. While in grabbing a couple non important items are Kroger, there were hundreds of people shopping. Of course I am people watching. In their carts was just junk. Literally, junk. Half of them didn’t have water. Or toilet paper. Or even flashlights/batteries. It was bizarre. In my head I was like “what in the world?”, however they could be thinking the same about me with 2 packs of Starburst and a pregnancy test.
So yeah. Happiness is NOT Hurricane Matthew.
