Another night and nothing to say.

This is getting to be a habit. A habit I don't like.

It's interesting living in Hawaii lately. First, we were threatened by hurricane Flossie. It was fascinating watching that. The authorities took no chances. They started issuing warnings last week. They were telling people to make sure they have water, medicine, gas, food, enough things to last 3 days. I guess after Katrina they want to make sure people understand they have to plan for themselves. We kept hearing, don't expect help for 3 days. Flossie was expected to hit the Big Island the worst. It didn't happen. Flossie petered out and just brought a lot of rain.

In the midst of preparing for Flossie, the Big Island suffers an earthquake. Luckily that turned out to be not so bad.

Then today, they thought the earthquake in Peru had generated a tsunami that would hit Hawaii around 2 a.m. Luckily they cancelled that warning and said no tsunami has been generated. Thank God!! Let's hope the natural disasters are over for now.

I'm bird sitting my boss' bird. I had thought I'd gotten over Xena's death and that I wasn't too worried about watching Tatu. Yeah, that's not true. Every time a small situation presents itself I go into major panic attack. I mean big time, heart pounding, sweating, total adrenaline rush. It's bad.

Tonight I was taking Tatu to help get dinner ready. She jumped off my shoulder onto the cockatiel cage. I totally freaked. I could not think straight I was so panicked. Now nothing really bad could have happened. When Tatu jumped on the cage the 'tiels went into the nest box to hide. So nothing could have happened, but man I totally freaked. This is not good, not good at all. Around animals you have to be calm and in control at all times. If I get panicked like that, I could cause a major accident. That can not happen.

Okay, that's all I have for tonight. Just some ramblings.......

It's good to hear Flossie left you guys alone. That's awful about the other disasters, though.

Just think of it this way, at least now you have a 72-hour kit so you're set for a while on being prepared for emergencies!
