Karl is not in Houston so no worries about him.
Friday morning I got a message from him that said. “Left Houston. Headed to Dallas. Can you find me a place to stay?”
I had told him the worst case scenerio was that I would find a blog reader that would let him stay. I was going out on a limb but I’ve found that all of you are really great people and wouldn’t leave me to worry about my boy. I was confident that something would work. Well you all know the awesome long-armer Cheryl who is always doing charity quilts for House of Hope and the quilts are featured here on the blog…well I went out of my box and asked her if she would be so kind as to host Karl. She was quick to say yes and I can’t tell you how special that was to me.
Just in case Cheryl was out of town or things didn’t work out I put something on the blog asking for help. WOW…I got a ton of replies. THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!! That was so kind of all of you.
The plan became that Karl would stay at Cheryl’s in Dallas for two nights which gave him long enough to access the situation in Houston. Today they cancelled classes in Houston for the upcoming week. We made the decision for Karl to drive home here and spend the week with us…again we’ll be watching the weather. Karl was told that another time when a hurricane was through classes were cancelled for two weeks so, we’ll wait and see what happens.
In the meantime, Hubby has a list of things for Karl to do and help him with…I’ve got a bit of a list too. I miss having a helpful kid at home with us!! I’m sure he’ll have plans besides just hanging with us all week.
Thanks again to EVERYONE who was so thoughtful and kind. I quit watching the news as all the stories are so depressing. I think the opposite is true here on the blog…we have WAY more good news than bad.
