My original plans for this evening was to watch these flicks
(I just realized that Josh,Brendan and Tom are all climbing. That's kinda cool...like a really terrifying race)
And then the power went out at 4:30. When my kids came inside there was much wailing and whining. Apparently without electricity,life is NOT worth living.
What I did instead..
read The Hunger Games on my Kindle Fire while snuggling a sleepy Savvy Gracie
played outside with the kids while Adam mowed the
PET PEEVE - we live in a duplex so we share our yard with another family. This family has a dog...which is fine and dandy. But when you share your yard with someone,it's just common courtesy to pick up the dog poop,especially when it's on your neighbors side of the yard. Especially if those neighbors mow most of the lawn because they own a gas powered mower and you own a reel mower. And especially if those neighbors are pretty awesome. END OF VENT
After the power had been out for 3 hours, I decided a trip to Wal-Mart was in order since we didn't have batteries or flashlights and it was getting dark. While there,Adam decided to look at baseball equipment since our oldest really wants to play baseball. My kids decided to entertain themselves by trying on baseball helmets.
We stopped at Wendy's on the way home to pick up dinner. When we arrived home,the power was back on. Hallelujah!
Then I ate dinner too late and I didn't work out. Oh,the shame.
