Update on my family & Hurricane Harvey

I'm happy to report that H and Ava were reunited the day before yesterday. I feel like I can breathe so much easier. I'm still stressed over the situation and seeing all the images of what it is going on in Texas is heartbreaking, but my anxiety has gone down a bit. I think I literally made myself sick. I now have a massive cold again and I feel so weary. I can hardly sleep. I know they are safe and also enjoying spending quality time with family, but I'm just so ready to have them home! I'm trying to keep it in perspective. I feel pretty crappy right now with exhaustion from parenting solo at the moment, and this cold....but I could be sleep deprived with a cold and sleeping in a shelter, or stuck on my roof so I feel bad for complaining as well. 

My mother and brothers, relatives and friends are all doing ok. Some don't know if water got in their homes, but we're praying it didn't. The sun has started to shine and the waters are starting to recede so that is good news. The city will thrive again. It's going to take some time, but they'll get there. Seeing people band together to help their fellow neighbor has been amazing. It's things like this that restore my faith in humanity again. I am bracing myself for the stories that are going to start coming out regarding looters. I mean what kind of low life do you have to be to take advantage of another's misfortune? Let's just hope people behave themselves. I'm not holding my breath, but I can hope. 

H's flight is scheduled for Friday if they can get to the airport. Their subdivision is not flooded, but surrounding roads are. If they can't make it Friday, the next flight they have booked is Sunday. 

Have a good Wednesday.
