power failure

I had somewhat of a productive day yesterday even with a 3.5 hour power loss! I was mid sewing (that blue and yellow wristlet above) and Alex was playing a computer game with his friends when it happened. We just sort of looked at each other and said, "Now what?" I realized last night just how much we need electricity. The power company said it wouldn't be until the following day that we'd regain power (yikes!). We watched the next episode of Alias we had from netflix until the battery on the laptop completely died. It started getting dark so we got the flash light Alex got for Christmas (thanks, Mom!) and put it by the front door before going to Chiles for dinner. When's the last time just the two of us sat down somewhere to eat? We're all about convience (aka: we're lazy) most of the time. It was nice to go out though. We were hoping the electricity would be working when we got home but no such luck. We decided to go to bed at 9:30 (Ha!) just as the power turned back on. Woohoo! We resumed our tasks and went to bed at a more normal hour- midnight.

You did real good honey. The true fiasco would have been Carmen getting one of the bright orange beads stuck in her throat! :( Glad it all worked out.
