This weekend isn’t going as I had planned.
In a dizzying frenzy, I attempt Back to School shopping and hurricane shopping simultaneously. As Tropical Storm/Hurricane Fay heads toward the Gulf and the First Day of School churns in our area, preparing for both these storms isn’t easy.
In my shopping typhoon, I may have gotten confused.
I packed their backpacks with extra batteries. Their lunchboxes are filled with canned soup and water for three days. And I may have inadvertently thrown their desks into the pool and covered their textbooks with plywood.
This is challenging all of my skills as a Floridian mother, and I wasn’t ready for a test this early on. These two thunderous events have no business near one another. Seriously, who plans a hurricane to coincide with the first week of school?
Obviously, Mother Nature must have home-schooled.
