I know it’s cliché and old but it truly is. I have been thinking about this post since this morning. There is so much that I want to do with life and I’m not doing it. I want to stop that starting now.
I haven’t put it out much on social media but with the huge rain storm and flooding this month, we were displaced. Never in a million years did The Mister think that the lake would overflow so much that water would get in our house. The first day and a half the water was halfway up our back yard. I was in a panic and worried and so we decided The Littles and I would go to my parents house in town. From Thursday until Sunday night The Mister fought the water has hard as he could in an effort to say our house. But the Lake had other ideas. Water got in the house and luckily it wasn’t as high as others.
Our neighbors across the channel way still had water up to their waist this weekend. The crazy thing is we are not in a flood zone. So sadly we had no flood insurance. Thank goodness for this being declared a Federal Disaster and FEMA stepping in. Thanks to them, we will be getting a little assistance in order to put the house back to rights.
It also helped the hubs realize that we need to live closer to town. He misses it, I miss it. He’s had so much stress going on that on Sunday night he scared the daylights out of me and had a seizure. That’s what’s so insane. It’s never happened before and they are attributing it to stress. He certainly has had a lot of it. I can’t say enough about his efforts in trying to save as much as he could.
I am so incredibly proud of him and all that he has done.
But as all of this is going on, I have realized life just needs to be more than what we have been doing. So going forward, we are going to take that and run. I will be redoing this blog. I have plans for it. I want to start a little side business. I am going to literally run more. I am planning to run a half marathon. It is time to take life by the balls and run.
I hope you will join me on this journey. Who said life doesn’t start at 40??!!!!!
