William asked me today if the fires were out, yet. I heard on the radio on Friday they are estimating containment on Tuesday - 16 days after this began. I read an article this weekend that said Wednesday. And, if I understand correctly (and I may not) containment only means they have the fire set inside a certain area not that it is not still burning.  I unpacked our bags a few days ago. I feel relief we have a home. I continue to think of the little things those around us have to deal with. Unfortunately I am too sensitive to follow the news and groups too closely or else I may just start crying and not stop. I have seen and heard so many that have said they have driven through the areas and it’s worse than they ever could have imagine - despite seeing the videos and photos. I can’t imagine. I know what little I’ve seen has been unimaginable/surreal. I barely saw smoldering parts of the freeway as I skipped town two weeks ago. I feel like it’s been a long two weeks and things are a blur. Yesterday I walked by our back slider and a neighbor was BBQing. There was a HUGE cloud of smoke emerging and my heart dropped and my anxiety shot until I realized what it was. I felt silly.  #sonomacountystrong #tubbsfire #nunsfire #pocketfire #evacuations #airquality

It's been sad times in #northerncalifornia. There have been at least 230,000 acres lost to fire in our areas in the last week. We voluntarily evacuated. But, it has made it no less painful. We have had handfuls of friends lose their home, or worse. We've all been living on edge - just wishing for a night to sleep easy knowing we, and our homes, are safe. It is scary, and painful. And, we all just can't wait for it to be over. #tubbsfire #atlasfire #sonomacountystrong #sonomacountyproud #fire #anxiety #scared #sad #newnormal #isitoveryet #survivorguilt #thankfulmykidsaresafe

Believe it or not this was his expression in between fusses. He wanted me to SNUGGLE before bathing and was not pleased after hanging with his bros and still wanted mama.
