What a difference a year makes.
This year Texas is in a severe drought. We have been besieged by fires since Labor Day weekend when we finally received a break of having 80 days over 100 degrees.
As I read an article about the fires, Hermine was mentioned – the tropical storm/hurricane from last year, not to be confused with Harry Potter’s BFF.
I remembered writing a post about Hermine and reread it.
I was floored.
The dramatic difference is almost astronomical.
I recalled almost none of what happened, blotted from my brain.
I’d totally forgotten it occurred on CG’s birthday (Happy birthday!).
I’m so glad I blogged it.
Today, I enjoyed another day with my children, following the awesome day of Tuesday.
Where I rejoiced in every minute of being a parent.
Rereading about last year only made me savor this year much more.
Most of you didn’t read my blog then.
I think many of you might relate to the post: Hermine and the Banshee.
Because last year, it wasn’t pretty. Or fun.
Here’s to CG having a much happier birthday this year.
