No electricity + trees and debris all over the place = NO SCHOOL!  We have electricity again.  Today we watched as the power crews (not local’s….they traveled here to help us) worked tirelessly in our woods replacing all our neighborhood’s lines.  At almost 5:30pm, we had lights!!! Woohoo!  So exciting!  We would’ve really enjoyed our days off of school…..had we had some elecricity.  Haha!

You know that “not a happy camper” title?  I’ve learned where that fits best…when you’re stuck in a terrible windstorm and you lose all your county’s power!  I was not a happy camper!  I was hatin!  Hatin no lights…hatin no computer……hatin no hot food (we spent our budget this week and then some eating out here and there!!) hatin no hot water….hatin no real way of seeing the real me in the mirror or being able to do my hair.  I could’ve molded it into a nifty design if you asked, that’s how dirty it was.  For those of you who know me……I take 2 showers a day, so imagine how sweet I was?  Grrrr.

Oh the best part……I’ve been dealing with shingles all week!  My lip grew to the size of a fat grape and throbbed so hard that my eye kept twitching.  My left side of my face hurt so bad. Pathetic, huh?  I was, totally hurting.  Then on Tuesday, I decided if I was going to be a skank princess I was going to get out there and clean up our yard (the war zone).  I raked and hauled away trees and limbs all day (thank you to Gavin and Gates for helping).  When I stopped around 3pm for a sandwich, a little yellow jacket landed on my arm and when I went to blow him off (I was totally being kind and peaceful) he stung me.  Now 2 days later my arm is still swollen and throbbing as if he were still stinging me.  I’ve taken Benadryl….no helpy!  Can you believe all this?  I can’t!  It’s so crazy!

But, tonight….I cooked, washed tons of laundry, changed sheets and I’m feeling so good.  My anniversary was surely one to remember.  Tomorrow the kids go back to school and hubby and I are off to celebrate in Indy for our anniversary.  We are excited to get away, even if it’s only for the day and evening.  We know how to party!

So, to my bloggy pals, I’ve missed all of you.  I think I really am addicted to the blog world.  While the world was shut down…..I got a bit restless and fantasized about how to get on a computer somewhere and go to it!  Haha.  I recognize that’s a bit nutty.  I have since repented!  heehee.  I love my hubby for rigging me up that one night with his handy-dandy cell phone online so I could blog my misery across the airwaves.  What a guy!  That’s love.
