You have me restless now. I am on the Peninsula. I have all the food and water but the generator is acting up. I have yet to fill the bathtub thinking that I still have time in the morning. Better get to finishing the prepping.


Good luck - will be praying for you and your family! I stuck it out during Katrina - it was terrifying but my family and I were lucky. Here's to hoping Irene takes an eastward jog!

You, too my friend. I think we are as ready as we can be. Rick has 230 galloons of rain water he has collected. We have a generator, fuel, propane, batteries, etc. I am just worried about all the trees surrounding our house.


Hoping all of you are able to stay safe!


Be safe. Love y'all.

Be safe, Carmen. I'm feeling panicky just thinking about my friends in the storm's path.


Hoping you are all doing well. Must go check on Mary now. :)

Keeping you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.

Hope you all are staying safe, it'll pass and you'll have loads of bottled water.

About Me

  • Carmen Staicer is a whirlwind of energy and execution, who never sleeps and drinks way too much coffee. She works from home as Social Media Programs Manager for SheKnows, and is the mom to six kids, most of whom play instruments, sing or dance and all of whom are much smarter than she will ever be. In other words, her house is never ever quiet or still. A concentration of asthma, food allergies, spectrum disorders and learning disabilities means that she spends an awful lot of time second guessing herself and Dr. Googling, as well as learning to cook everything the family might like to eat. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, boxing (she has her Black Belt in Muay Thai), sleeping, exploring coffee shops, photography, ballet class and cooking. She excels in being a smart mouth and has her major in sarcasm, with a dual minor in BS studies and avoiding laundry.
