I have been rushing around trying to get things done before Hanna arrives. William has been my venting outlet. I call him telling him what I have already done and ask what else I need to do. I vent at him when the electric fence stops working. He tries to tell me what to do and I am screaming back that I don't know how to do those things and I shouldn't have to know how to do everything. He waits for me to calm down, talks me through what to check and we decided I need a new charger. I rush to TSC before the close, come home and realize I can hook up a new box without getting zapped and it will work. When I tell him I am purchasing water he reminds me a couple gallons isn't enough and I purchase the bigger water jugs. When I tell him I purchased more lamp oil for the lamps he reminds me to get extra batteries and fuel for the camp stove. I tell him what I have already put away so the wind won't blow away he reminds me of other things and what needs to be covered and strapped down. How much water I need to stock up for the animals and extra feed. Hanna may not do anything here but at least with William's help and patience we are ready just incase. Its stressful having to deal with all this but its even more stressful for William having to deal with it from across country. Knowing he wants to be here to take care of the animals and things around the property before Hanna arrives makes me feel bad about venting with him. Except for a few last minute things needing to be done we are ready. The goats and other animals will be safe and dry. I will be safe and dry and things should still be where they belong hopefully when Hanna has come and gone. I can't promise I won't be venting more before its all over but I know William will let me vent and then tell me what I need to do to fix the problem. To all in Hanna's path stay safe and dry!
