“1” (ONE)…???…???…???…dress is ALL I’ve had  for casual-wear during my 2-days OFF from work EVERY week since last October, 2016!!!  Aaahhhhhh!!!  “I”…???…???…???…am NOT kidding, folks!!!  “1” (ONE) DRESS…THAT’S IT!!!  And I wear that same, 1 dress on non-work days.  🙁  ALWAYS!!!  🙁  🙁

I will NEVER forget throwing together a few scrubs for work and even fewer clothes-clothes in my suit-case to evacuate the island for Hurricane Matthew.  Yep, “TEAM ALLEN” evacuated to my work-place, MCNRC, which ALSO serves as an area “SHELTER”.

We “THOUGHT” we’d be heading “RIGHT” back home in a couple days.  Like ALL previous evacuations for the last 20+ years.  HA!!!  Hurricane Matthew came by here in early October, 2016.  We are still in a rental home…4+ months later!!!

Many clothes are in boxes and bags…???…???…???… “SOMEWHERE”…out there in either this rental garage or back home in our garage.  Folks, I remember just grabbing clothes hanging in my closet and throwing them in the back of the van…still on hangers.  Trying to salvage ALL that I could from the ruins.  And those clothes…???…???…???…are STILL there, folks.  JUST piled in the back of my van!!!  :/  Along with other “STUFF” waiting to return “HOME”.  🙁

The neighborhood “JOKE”???…???…???…is how I ALWAYS wear that same 1 dress!!! During the initial demo. work at our house…I wore “THE DRESS”.  When stopping over to check on the reno. process…I wear “THE DRESS”.  For neighborhood holiday gatherings, 2016…I wore “THE DRESS,” etc.  I ALWAYS wear that same 1 (ONE) DRESS, now referred to as:  “THE DRESS” by ALL!!!  We’ve had some pretty good chuckles about “THE DRESS,” folks.  NO KIDDING!!!  :/  IT’S ALL I’VE GOT!!! FOR NOW…

Yep, I wear “THE DRESS” everywhere I go on my days OFF work.  And NAVY scrubs (“TEAM BLUE” @ MCNRC) 5 days of the work-week.  :/  UGH!!!  I’m just tired of this whole…???…???…???…”ADVENTURE” (as my husband would call it!!!)  :/  I’ve had enough adventuring for now, Babe.  Just “show me the way to go home.  I’m tired and I wanna go to bed”…

NAVY scrubs and/or…???…???…???…”THE DRESS” have comprised my ENTIRE wardrobe for the past 5+ months, folks.  I think I’ll treat my“SELF” to a new DRESS once we get settled back in our home-home.  😉

I must admit this current rental home (a townhouse) has fit our needs quite nicely.  It feels like “HOME,” in that we can relax and be comfortable here… living out of suitcases!!!  While “TEAM ALLEN” is STILL…??…???…???…”SURVIVING HURRICANE MATTHEW!!!  :/


P.H.P., folks.  People Helping People…to survive “LIFE”.

Give the BEST of yourself for “JUST” today…“EVERY” day!!!
