Ok, so this is getting serious…

Today is the 9th day that Marlow has been without power.  When this whole ordeal happened last week, today was the original day they were suppose to “power up” the substation.  Well, then yesterday we were told it would be Monday, because of the weather.  What flippin’ weather, rain??  Then the lovely weathermen that we have in this great state of Oklahoma, said a snow storm was coming in on Monday.  So, this morning doing my daily rounds through the internet, I see where PSO will not power up the substation until Wednesday, which means it will be 2 WEEKS WITHOUT POWER. 

Don’t get me wrong, I am very thankful and feel truly blessed, to have shelter, heat, family and health through all of this, but I just want it to be back to my NORMAL crazy life.  Gracie is ready for light in her bedroom, so she can play dolls and read books in there.  We have cords running all over our house running a lamp, fridge, tv, and depending on what time it is, one of the extension cords could be running a lamp in the kitchen, the deep freeze, Gracie’s TV, the microwave, or the toaster.  Every time I step on one of those cords, it hurts my foot, and I just want to scream.  I have only cried once, and I think I am getting delirious.  I am sleep deprived because all I can think about is something catching on fire, since we run our generator all night.  All in all, I think we have all kept a pretty good attitude, and once again, I am very thankful for the things I do have! It could always be worse!
