Had a crazy week, which was capped off with no power Friday evening. We had a massive, crazy storm blow through, which I got caught in because I was running errands for work. I went home to let the dogs out, and was relieved to see that we still had power. That relief turned to complete dismay after work, because by the time I got home, hours AFTER the storm was over, we didn’t have power. UGH! To make matters worse, none of my “essential” electronics – my phone, my Kindle, my laptop- had much battery life left, so I multitasked. How? I took the dogs to the park for a walk, and left my phone and my Kindle charging in my car! I have now exercised every day for at least 45 minutes for over week (I usually take Friday nights off to clean the house), and my Kindle was locked and loaded for a weekend of reading in case we didn’t have power restored.
Dean and I then took advantage of the lack of cooking options (as in, we had none) to go and treat ourselves to sushi and a tasty Japanese dinner. Then I cuddled in the dark with the pups and the Kindle, and tried to keep from freaking out about the fact that we didn’t have water and I might not be able to shower Saturday morning. Power was restored around 10 PM, so we weren’t inconvenienced as much as we could have been, and I am trying to take things in stride like the dogs. They didn’t care that we didn’t have lights or flush toilets!
