I want to say, to people sending letters, packages, positive thoughts:

it all really helps and I deeply thank you.

we are very fortunate and well situated in that we have a house in which we can stay indefinitely, we have electricity, we have clothes to wear, we have toiletries, we have food.

we are, like most (all?) evacuees, without income, but we are applying for aid from the state and we are for the moment not in need, you know? I won't be afraid to say so if our situation changes, I promise.

but letters and packages are wonderful, they really brighten up the day for me, and especially for my kids. we are all feeling intense emotional strain and hearing from friends helps us with that.

so again, thank you. and if you have a pile of money, please give some to the red cross to whatever shelters & organizations you can get info for. my internet time is severely limited right now so I can't research much, but the red cross does not seem to be the best option in terms of direct aid.

so bizarre.
The first thing that went into our cart were 2 whoopie cushions. And while they were willing to negotiate on other things, they were adament that the cushions stayed.

Thanks for continuing to update here. This has got to be awful for you and I can't imagine that it's easy to get online and type things out and go over things again and again.
Still sending lots of love, mama.
