Kimbosue's Blog has MOOOOOVED!

**As of November 9, 2009, please find me at my new home below.**

Some posts are pw protected, so for the super secret decoder pen....ahem... code, please email me at kimbosue2 AT hotmail DOT com.

This blog will remain open. The link is still tied to lots of IF blogs, groups, and websites. I hope someone can read through my journey and find hope and strength and know that there is a light at the end of the IF tunnel. Prayer is the key! I love all my IF girlies I met along the way, and I hope to keep your friendships going forward during this next chapter of Mommyhood. I hope to see you there!

I love a Rainy Night...

It's been raining like crazy here in Houston since about 3AM! Now that I am off the van and my carpooling buddy got laid off, I have to drive Zoe into work. Zoe = 350Z which is a mere 8 inches off the ground. We all know Houston has serious drainage problems - you would think with all the storms we get, they would do better...

I was a big ol' ball of nerves by the time I finally got to the office today! The 288/610 interchange had high water so I couldn't risk going that way. I stayed on 288, hoping to take 59S. It was so dark and the headlights were reflecting off the water on the road, so much so that I missed the dang exit. Took the next exit and thought I could u-turn and get back onto 59...not so much. So stayed on Alabama and came across a feeder going to the left one way (usually they are right) and there was a sign to get on 59S here...2 ramps one on left of esplanade and one on right. I went to the left a little ways up and had a bad gut feeling that I was going one way on a wrong way street. REVERSED DOWN THE RAMP...back to street...continued on Alabama...found Montrose (familiar...good) turned...found Westheimer (office is off of this..good) turned..Finally made it in 1 hour later!

Hoping the storm is gone-gone by this afternoon so I can have a nice UNEVENTFUL drive home!

Yeah, cute list. :)

Now you really would think they'd have better drains in Houston. Only time we've been in a hurricane was there, and, boy, can it ever rain!
