I am home again from work today. I am working from home. It is smoky and there is ash raining down. Luckily, there are no fires heading for us, just above and below us. The one closest to us was a smaller one and they have it 100% contained. There are no evacuations for our area. The evacuation boundaries came very close last night, but have since been scaled back. It is a mess.
Carolynn is very upset about this whole thing. She has asked me a million times if anyone we know is in the fire. So far, no one we know has had to be evacuated except my boss and his family who live in the voluntary evacuation zones. They are safely out of town. Carolynn is also concerned about her turtle and the cats. She does not need to worry because we would not leave them. Poor Carolynn gets so upset over stuff. I am trying to keep her busy. We are going to watch Dreamgirls and have hot dogs. Last night we had egg rolls and fried rice.
Carolynn still wants to have her Halloween party on Saturday, but with the schools being closed until Monday, it makes it very difficult to invite friends. Who knows what will happen by Saturday anyway. She is trying to call around and ask people, but she only knows like two or three kids phone numbers. I have a feeling it is going to be canceled. Maybe only Jessica will come. We will have to see.
With school being canceled, I imagine the cross country championship will be canceled too.
Carolynn is having a rough week.
