So I completely missed yesterday's confessions because, well this happened. Tropical Storm Halong came through and put up quite a fight. Fortunately, it wasn't as bad as we thought. The electricity didn't go out for the most part (some parts of the island did lose power for a short period of time) and nobody was reported to be seriously or fatally injured. The biggest issue Guam had was the flooding.
Our house wasn't damaged at all, but my in-laws' house (where my children are spending their summer) got flooded early yesterday morning.

Two storms have passed by in just this month and it's been pretty crazy. Tomorrow is August (can you believe it?) and we're hoping that the sun will come out again. We're all in serious need of some sunshine and salt water therapy.
Now that it's the end of July, I've started to realize how behind I've gotten on everything in the last two months. My blog planner got drenched so I had to chuck it and I hadn't even used it since May. I started to create my own planner from scratch but had to hold off on finishing that because of work craziness. Even my work space is piled with files and papers that I haven't had time to organize because of how busy we've been lately. The house needs a serious cleaning overhaul, I've got to update all the stats and pages on the blog, and I still haven't been able to get rid of the crap we've been meaning to sell.
I've decided that this weekend (and maybe for the whole first week of August) I'll be doing some catch-up. Blog maintenance, planning, cleaning, reorganizing, etc. The floods of June and July have washed me out and I need to regroup.
What about you? Feeling overwhelmed lately? Need to relax and get shit back in order for fall? Ever experience some crazy storms?
P.S. The July giveaway winner is: Stina! Go on and congratulate her!
