At 5 PM Friday, after 5 days without electricity, 8 weary men (some from 6 hours away) spent an afternoon at our house putting the electric lines back up.  I really really wish I had had something to give them; even candy bars would have been nice!  (Note to self:  for next time)

Now it's back to work, sigh:  laundry.  Vacuuming.  Cleaning.  Shopping for food.  Fetching back our Freezer Food From Friends (the 5 F's).

Something I have to unlearn: 
Not to reach for the flashlight in my pocket when I want to go to the basement.

Something I should consider more: 
Not to have so many lights on all at the same time.
Keep better track of what exactly is IN that freezer.
Go to bed earlier.

Something quite exciting:
I have a completely totally clean refrigerator and freezer.  Yee-haw!


  1. I am so glad to read this... I read your last post this morning and have been praying for you on and off during the day as I could tell how tired I would be of dealing with all the inconvenience. I am very glad. :D

  2. Hurray for working electricity! A lot of people around here lost theirs too... I'm not sure if it's all back on or not.

  3. Hi, I just happen upon you site. And I took a little look around, I hope you don't mind. I have really enjoy read alot of you posts. You are welcome to come visit my site anytime. God bless

  4. I just want to say it's rather ironic that you blog more when your power is out...

  5. What is good with you is you always see the positive side of the things or events .Yes fairy Electricity is a good one !

  6. How have you been doing this fall? I feel so out of touch with all my Xanga friends.
