Recently have been told I look like Mary Ann from Gilligan's Island. I hadn't heard that in years, but that is a good place to start as to what I look like, although she had a better bod. I have three boys and have been married for 13 years. Born of a Navy family, in Hawaii, one Mom, one Dad, one sister and one brother. The eldest of three children. BS in Applied Mathematics. Consider Pensacola my home town although I moved every 2-3 years of my life growing up. Currently work in the aerospace industry in an engineering position while being a Mom. Of Celtic heritage and very proud of it.

Well, Hurricane Frances took the big school, but left us with the library, Kindergarten, and the Parish Hall/cafeteria. We went into the big school and cleared out all that we could save after the flooding, storing it in boxes and hauling it all across the parking lot, via a moving company we hired, and stored it in our Parish Hall. Last week a bunch of parents went in and sorted what was to be sent to real storage and what was to be sent to the temporary schools. A storage company was going to pick up all storage stuff on Tuesday and move it out.

Then on Saturday, Hurricane Jeanne hit. I drove by the school yesterday just to make sure the Kindergarten was still standing. It was, as was the library. But our Parish Hall/cafeteria had the roof blow off (de ja vu?) and it took in water and everything we stored in there is now history. Well, maybe not everything. Once again, parents and staff are sorting through water logged crap trying to determine what is salvagable.

There has been concern that our Parish priest (who has been in Ireland with his dying brother for this entire ordeal) will not allow a new school to be built, that he'll just want to spiff up the 40 year old POS we've been making do with, mold problems and all. I'm telling you now, if this man isn't taking all this as a BIG DAMN SIGN FROM GOD, he is deaf and blind and I don't want to stand next to him for fear next time it will be a bolt of lightning that gets his attention. 'Nuff said.
