Another Day...

Nothing profound or deep to report. Today was chalk-full of activity, but not before my Monday ended w/ a thud.
My electricity went out last night right around when I fell asleep. It was out for about 4 hours, as it was over most of my city (so they told me). It's hard to sleep when all is dead silent. No air circulating, no humming of appliances. It was surreal. Why is it that when all goes silent I wake up with a start, yet when I have 4 alarm clocks blasting for 1/2 an hour, I'm barely conscious? I didn't get much sleep last night...I think the funny part was me using my atomic clock as a flashlight when I couldn't find one that had batteries (note to self: find flashlights and replace batteries!) I kept pushing the button that lights the LED screen as I walked around my house.
Anyhow...today was also a bit crazy, as always. I worked until 8 (over a 12 hour day) and still feel like I need another 10 to get caught up! Hopefully I'll catch up someday soon!

I am cracking up about the clock as your light source. I have used just about every battery powered object in my house that way too. Sorry your week is so long, hopefully everything will calm down soon.

Not fair! I live about what? six miles from you and yet all we got was the light and sound show. You guys got all the rain! I am exhausted by the way. I can't wait to sleep in on Saturday!

Lula, when the electricity went out there wasn't a cloud in the sky! It was all of Lewisville, my neighbor said because of some expensive vandalism! Tuesday night we got a light and sound show though!
Enjoy your weekend--!
