We had an earth shattering experience this afternoon...
Our power went out.
Our power went out for 45 MINUTES!!!!
Ok, so I realize it is not earth shattering. But in those forty-five minutes I did the following:
Opened the pantry door and turned on the light switch to find a snack. Only to stand there and remind myself the light bulb burned out last week. It didn't even dawn on me until after that thought that the power was out.
Then I thought about getting something to drink. When I opened the fridge it startled me that the inside light was off - duh, no power!
Well, I decided a cup of coffee sounded good...AGAIN, NO POWER - The Keurig doesn't work without power. They really need to make a battery back up for that thing.
Tried to check Facebook, email, and use my house phone..... I was experiencing a serious learning curve with this issue!
I finally decided to grab this sweet opportunity and spend some quiet time with the kiddos. We enjoyed a nice long session of play dough. It was great! It was quiet! It was uninterrupted time with my children.
This lasted until I decided the house was getting hot and I needed the windows opened. The moment my brain knows the power is out and the AC isn't on I immediately get hot. Does anyone else do that?
What a nice, unexpected time this afternoon. I think I will go make a cup of coffee, use creamer from the fridge, make a snack, and replace the light bulb in my pantry. :)
