The olden days??


I now know for sure that I could have survived back in the olden days, but maybe only a day or two.  So, we have been without power completely since Thursday at noon.   We have all been staying warm as best as we can.  Brian finally got a generator Friday night and plugged in our heater and fridge.  Then Saturday we plugged in the TV with the DVD player.  So, we have been watching movies non-stop.  Brian cooked a big pot of Taco soup for everyone Saturday, my sister brought beans and cornbread, and my Mom made a cake and spicy corn.  Her electricity went out at the end of the cooking time for the cake, but she just left it in the oven for a while, and it turned out delicious.  We have actually gotten to take a shower each day, and sleep in our own bed each night.  Our water pressure is slowly dying, and now I hear another storm is headed our way.  Marlow is saying that we will be without power until Friday, Awesome!  Kenna and I are at work right now, they just got power fully back on late last night.  So, we are here just for support right now.  I sent some laundry home with mom last night and she kept Gracie and Addy.  The attitudes have been for the most part great, just a little crabbiness, from boredom, I am sure.  Needless to say, we are ready for things to get back to normal, but maybe this will be a new normal.  Maybe we should turn off the TV every once in a while and let our imagination run free :)  Gracie loves to make up stories now, and we know we can find stuff for them to do!
