So how do you build a log cabin anyway? Can a girl from the Bronx find quiet somewhere besides the bathroom?

I think that I may have to become Kelly Thoreau and find a cabin in the woods for peaceful, undisturbed and healing blogging time.  Has it really been this long since I blogged?  It has been a busy time for me with planning for Fright Night at the intermediate school (a big success gratefully), juggling the kids' activities and my volunteer work, and weathering through a week long power outage.  All in all, we feel blessed to be safe, healthy and happy here in our home together.  I pray for all those who have lost so much due to the storm.

I can't wait to visit all of you soon.  My battle with laryngitis is almost over and a vlog will soon be showing up here.  Now that the voice is returning, my kids are "thrilled" that I don't have to make all those crazy hand gestures and facial expressions to get my point across to them. How much the teenagers loved to act like they didn't understand my mime attempts at communication.  When a battle would brew among the boys, you can be sure that an almost accurately thrown laundry sock ball was thrown into the mix to get their attention.  Needless to say, they laughed at my "lame" (their description) attempt at pitching!

Happy to hear you weathered the storm! I had to laugh when I read your post title. I remember those times when the bathroom offered little found peace and quiet! LOL!

Yeah you're back and safe. I've been thinking of you with all the storms in your area.

Take care and looking forward to reading/hearing more.

Oooh Kelly, I am so very pleased to see you back safe and sound. I worried about you when that storm descended on your area. Hubby keeps asking if I've heard anything. I can tell him now. Glad to hear the laryngitis has found it's way out the door! Hugs from me.

I knew you lived in the area where the storms hit and I am so happy to hear that you and your family are doing fine except for the laryngitis part. Take care and get better soon!

Glad to hear you survived the storm. Let's hope you survived Thanksgiving and the laryngitis, too. I haven't heard from you in a long time! :)

I like the sock ball idea. Lame or not. My two rowdies often seem to be deaf to my voice.
