    Just a scarey vent about work!!!!

    So I thought that the hurricanes would only effect our gas prices but I was so very very worng. My family (DH works with us to) runs a irrigation supply house. We provide irrigation (pipe, sprinklers, fittings etc.) supplies to residental, commerical and industrial customers. Just so happenes that some of the major plants that manufacture the material that is need to make the pipe that we sell is located in the golf coast. So you know what that means?? They are down right now, and maybe down for a while no one knows for sure how long it will take then to get back on line! For one they have some damage from the storms, then all their employee are spread out all accross the US and some have no homes to come home too and last some of the RR that they use to transport the material are washed out!!!! So things are getting really scarey for us. We are running out of pipe very quickly. Thank goodness we are going into our slow season. Things could get really scarey for our jobs if the shortage last to long!

    And of coarse the AF witch shows up today!! She's only two weeks early!!!! I'm not sure why she's here she wasn't due till 10-14 but she came with some very very painful cramps!!!! I didn't even "O" this month! We were hoping that this would be our ttcing month, NOT!!!!! But now that just means she wont be coming with me on vacation!!!!

    Well thanks for reading!!!!

    I can imagine how unsettling and scary, Priscilla. I will keep you all in my thoughts.

    Sorry about AF, but vacation is always a nice time to ttc and it sounds like O may coincide. [insert amorous smiley here-lol].

    Oh Priscilla--I'm so sorry--about your family business, and about AF. I'm sure it is in a lot of folks best interest to get those manufacturing plants back up and running ASAP, but in the meantime, do you have alternative suppliers in other parts of the country (world?). I'm sure you all have though of that, but I just had to ask.

    Regarding AF, maybe she came early so that you could spend lots of vacation time TTCing?

    Hugs--

    Its frightening to think of all the 'what-ifs' but we have to believe that everything will always come out all right.

    Sorry about AF coming early but like the others have said... perhaps you can just TTC your little heart out for the rest of the month

    to your family business.

    I'm sorry about AF showing up early but like the girls have said maybe she did this so you could "plan" and "play" around on your vacation.
