The Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves- Powerless Edition

 

The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba of The Caffeinated Book Reviewer.  This is a weekly meme where we can share news of the week and highlight new books received.

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!

    Weather has been crazy the last couple of years. Thankfully we never lost power, even during Hurricane Sandy. Glad you got your power back and everything turned out ok.

    Hope you enjoy all your new reads!

    Have a great weekend

    Nice book haul! Dark Triumph, The Culling, and Memory Zero look interesting. I will wait to check out your reviews on those. :)

    I’ve read Collaboration, and I liked it, it was pretty interesting.

    I’m sorry about your power going out, that sounds like a crazy weekend!

    I hope you have a good week,

    @Erinf1 – Sorry to hear about your fur-baby! Mine aren’t afraid of the thunder, which is good, because it’s pouring again right now, and we’re expecting thunderstorms all week! thanks for stopping by!

    WOW… you are sooo lucky that your dogs aren’t afraid of the thunder. Mine turns into a shivering mess that has to be *on* me at all times. Makes for great cuddle time but I appreciate it more than he does!

    @erinf1 – Our doberman was TERRIFIED of thunder and fireworks. July was a terrible month for her because everyone sets off the noise makers almost the whole month long. She was such a good dog and I miss her and my Buu desperately. He wasn’t afraid of anything lol
