When the kids were tired of the library we went to a couple of stores just for something to do. We stopped for ice cream treats and went to my mom's. We hung out there for a while. The kids were in heaven watching TV. Mickey called to say people we know in the neighborhood just posted they got their power back and someone else close by got theirs too. He thought maybe we had it too. I wasn't too hopeful. He went home after work to find that we did indeed have power. I was ready to start dancing around I was so happy. He stayed home and started the clean up. Lulu and Gertie, the washer and dryer, were put to work right away. Some of us were down to our last clean pair of shorts. Mickey got a LOT of work done. When I came home from dropping Meg at practice this is what I saw.
All of this went to waste. What a shame. We took all the important stuff to Jan's but thought the other stuff would be alright not knowing it would be days until the power came back and not hours. Mickey was nice enough to make a list of all the stuff he threw out. Now I know what I have to buy. It's a long list.
The kids are so happy to be back in their beds in their own rooms. And so are we. There are a few more storms predicted for this week. I really would like to see them pass us right by without any destruction. I don't know if I could do this again. Actually I won't. Jan, make sure your extra rooms are ready, just in case.
