Oh that's rich

and now I have "Friends" from Dallas who are happy in their air conditioning, probably washing their clothes and drinking water from their fridge with ice from their freezers ... telling me that I need to stop complaining. That I CHOOSE to remain here in Houston, even though um having to find somewhere to stay, having to LEAVE OUR JOBS seems like maybe not such a big deal ... and leave our house and what do we do with our dog? TELL ME THAT... and telling me that if I cried about it on Saturday then maybe I have some deeper issues than just this no power/no water thing.

I have a DEEPER ISSUE FOR YOU- STOP READING MY POSTS AND MY BLOG. If you can't handle what I have to say then GO AWAY and stop concerning yourself with me. Why don't you come down here and live for a few days how I have lived for TEN DAYS.

I am not a princess. I am not spoiled and I have worked really hard to maintain my composure ... but until you have lived in this mess, don't judge me. GET OFF MY SITE.

that is so sad!! I am so sorry that people (who really have no clue) are saying these things to you. No one can know how they will react or what they would do in a situation until they sre in it. I feel so bad for you guys. I hope you guys don't have to wait until Thurs.

I just wanted you to know I was thiking about you - and that not everyone is a complete idiot.

Thank you Dee Dee.

I know know not everyone is, but would be surprised at the number of people who are!

Wow, that's really unsupportive. I go crazy without power for three hours. Ten days is a lot of time to be without power and it's a lot of time to be away from your home. There's not really an optimal decision to make in this situation, so it's unfortunate that people removed from the situation feel compelled to judge.

I hope your power comes back on soon.
