The house is slowly but surely getting back into shape. I have two people come in to help in the clean up and for three days they cleaned the yard and "washed" the house. Two outlet circuit breakers are still out and I just can't figure out why. I have been calling an electrician to come and check the circuits but I guess he's still swamped with work.

Ethan has not been to school for the past 4 days plus today. He and I are just too tired to go to school. I know! Classes have been suspended for one week but his school is open for those who want to come to school. About 99% of the school population was not affected by the recent flooding. The 1% was Ethan. Crazy! The reason I think was that the school admin didn't want to make up for lost school days so as not to affect the semestral break. I didn't like that. A parent said the school admin was worried because the students were already behind their studies. Give me a freaking break!!! These kids are from ages 2.5 to 7!

Anyway, PAGASA said another mega typhoon will hit the northern part of the Philippines tomorrow. D2 and I went out last night to buy stocks for the pantry, buy my medications, and stock up on candles, flashlights et al. Boy! The supermarket was teeming with panic buyers. I even saw a couple dressed to the nines! The woman was in her sparkly evening gown while the man was in tuxedos! The hardware section of the grocery actually ran out of flashlights that I literally had to run to the mall's hardware store to buy flashlights.

Here's hoping and praying that the typhoon weakens and dies enroute.
