Not only was it quiet, but it was HOT! Sweltering, sticky, ungodly, sort of hot, and of course the 2 year old couldn't sleep due to the silence either and he wanted to
Jumping out of bed, I grab the only clock in the house that is battery run, my laptop of course and boot it up as I feel for a lighter to relight the candles I bought last week at CVS. (They were originally 4.99 and thanks to my CVS sale and coupons, I scored them for $.99, so it was like Jesus saying, "buy the candles, Ally".) Just as I am lighting the last candle, POOF, they are all blown out! My fan had come back on!!!! There is a God after all! It is only 5:30, I have power to make coffee, kids have an hour to get ready and be on the school bus, and I can actually flush the potty-well pump doesn't work without electricity so we never have water when we don't have electricity.
I am hoping for a better day than this one started off to be, for sure. I am off here to do my weekly store research, because after picking up my children from school this afternoon, it is grocery shopping day!
