Your Three Words

That's right... we're finally home.

After 3 hours of sitting on Rt 12 {the one road off the island} and peeing in the bushes in front of someone's house {what?} we're finally home.
The 6.5 hour trip took a total of 10 hours. The kids were angels considering the circumstances.

While we're so glad to be here, we also feel... short changed. We missed out on 2.5 days of our vacation. Thursday and Friday are usually the days we go shopping, play mini golf, do activities around the island, and other fun stuff. We didn't get to do any of that.

Oh well.

Thankfully, we had hurricane insurance. We get it every year {this is the second hurricane in 5 years we've been going to OBX.} I have to call today and put in a claim but we should get reimbursed for at least 2 days of the trip due to the mandatory evacuation that went into affect at 8am on Thursday morning.

On the bright side, we have a 4 day weekend ahead of us. We plan to do some shopping, restock the fridge and cabinets, and relax. I also want to put out all my fall decorations {yay, I can officially celebrate now!} We might take the kiddos to the aquarium too... we'll see!

Thanks for all of your well wishes! Now play along in the Y3W Blog Hop!
