Interview with Stephanie DosReis over here.
The power went out for about an hour and a half tonight. It was fun but its hard to sleep without all the evening house noises. Without power or light to make things, I went to Target. As one does. But they closed after 10 minutes so I came home and started a journal page by flashlight. Then S woke up. So I got in bed. Then it all came back on and scared us to death. Since I was the last one up, it was my duty to go through the house and turn off all electronics that had been on and since I was downstairs, I decided I should go ahead and waste the lesson of 'turning things off' and tell you all about it.


Happy Thursday. More to share soon.

The Power went off here too yesterday. Someone hit a power pole near work and all the power went off. (there were live wires everywhere so they shut down the whole grid) and the ENTIRE downtown went black (town of about 60k people)- at least it was lunch time so it was light out. Then of course the power comes back on after about a hour so that I didn't get to leave work early- but it was still a good day :)

Hope your day is awesome!

Such a pretty flower! I still had my power. I love it when it goes out but I agree hard to sleep. I try to teach my kids to turn off the lights when not in use and they seem to get it more then the adults! LOL!

Oh I love that picture Rach! Makes me smile!!

We lost power here as well. Unfortunatly I was at work when it happened. The only good thing about it was our backup generator actually worked and there werent too many patients awake to notice what had happened.

Did I mention how scary spooky a hospital gets when it is pitch black?

You are so funny! When I was little I used to read under the covers with a flashlight (not because the power was out, but because I was supposed to be sleeping), but it reminded me of that! Beautiful picture and I enjoyed checking out your interview!

You're so brave! I flip out when the power goes off. Me = Afraid of the dark.

Hopefully your whole clan will get over that bug soon. Yuck!

Have an awesome Friday!
