I am not really the big worrying type.
I have my typical mommy fears, like everyone else. But as a whole I am pretty laid back when it comes to thinking about every little thing that "could" or "might" go wrong in life .
I tend to think that the more you focus on bad things happening , the more you attract the same thing you are afraid of. So I take my precautions and move on with life. There is not use sitting and fretting. It's a waste.
With that being said, I will be honest that all this news about the impending hurricane arriving in Connecticut is freaking me out a tad. When I heard the weather man refer to Irene as a potential "historic" storm I started a running list in my head of things we should have, just in case. So Derek and I will be heading to the store to stock up on batteries, candles, and water. I am not looking forward to spending Sunday (the day of the storm) alone in the house with the kids. Derek will be at work, unless they close and I hope they do. Trace doesn't do well with storms and quite honestly I feel like a 6 year old again every time a storm happens. When Trace starts crying and asking to hide under blankets I keep my brave face on but inside I just want to say, "Oh baby, mommy wants to hide under blankets too!"
Hopefully this will all be one big dramatic flop. And in that case, at least I took the precautions and we won't have to go shopping for the next big hurricane (that better not ever come).
As for now, the sun is shining and mama has a lot of laundry to catch up on.
And I should probably clean the cat box.
