We started our hurricane preparations today, attempting to beat the rush.
Wal-Mart was almost a complete bust. No "D" batteries. No lanterns. Couldn't find the flashlights. No water (except for one case of flavored water). We did find oil for the generator.
I say it was almost a complete bust because I did find some super cool Sharpie pens. I have the original pack (blue, black, and red) but these were pink, aqua, "melon," and lime green! I love them...they were totally a hurricane prep essential!
Next, we went to Target and got some cases of water, a black Mag Light for Tom, and some "AA" and "AAA" batteries. Still no "D" batteries. Still no lanterns. But, I did buy the new InStyle magazine and a People magazine special on the style of Kate Middleton. Seriously ladies, priorities! This is my hurricane survival pack!!
So, off to Home Depot we went. We FINALLY found lanterns and bought two of them. When we walked through the door, a man that worked there said they did not have ANY "D" batteries in the store. Well, when Tom and I were searching for lanterns, we stumbled upon a forgotten display in the back that had a mere 6 packs of "D" batteries...we bought all of them!
There was also a sign on the door of Home Depot that said you cannot pre-order, reserve, or order generators. The man that worked there also said that the last two generators in the store had just been sold. People do not kid around when it comes to preparing for hurricanes! Luckily, Tom's family already has a generator (this is not their first rodeo).
Here are all of our hurricane goods:
Now, on to other matters...
I have a job interview tomorrow! It is a group interview for a Personal Banker position! I am super nervous, but am trying to focus my nervous energy into making sure that my outfit, purse, portfolio, resume, and appearance is all in order. Basically, when I get nervous, I obsess over every little thing I can control!
Has anyone ever been through a group interview? Any idea of what I should expect?
Lastly, a girl that is only a year younger than my sister died today. Her father and her were in a horrendous car accident yesterday that took his life and left her in critical condition with a broken pelvis, both of her femurs broken, and brain swelling. While I do not know the exact details of her passing, please keep her and her family in your prayers. I do not want to imagine what her family is going through. Here is a link to the news report if you want to read more about it.
I hope y'all had a great Wednesday!
