Alone In My Own Bed

For the past SEVEN MONTHS, we have not been able to live in our own house, thanks to that bitch, Katrina. We have lived in Florida, at my aunt and uncle's house, at my friend's cousin's house, and most recently in a FEMA trailer. In those seven months, I have shared a bed with either Ma'Ma' or my mom every single night. It's been tough, as you can imagine.

Last night, for the first time in exactly seven months, my mom, Scott and I all slept in our OWN rooms, in our new beds, in our own house by ourselves!!!! Amazing, I know.

I never thought I'd be so excited, but it really was incredible. Our beds came over the weekend and we got our new linens, so even though the house is not completely finished, we are going to move in gradually.

My bed is really nice...pillow top on the top and bottom of the mattress, we all got 600 thread count sheets and a new comforter. The bed is so high; I almost need a ladder to get into it! It is comfortable and I can spread out as much as I want! I have my old TV on a chair in the room, so I was able to feel as close to normal as possible back in my room. There is absolutely nothing else in there right now, but my chest of drawers and nightstand are being delivered next week.

I just had to share the good news of us sleeping in our own beds last night. It's the little victories in life that put a smile on your face. :)
