Creature Comforts

It's been a while since I've posted. There are two reasons for that.

First, our computer modem died, and we had to get a new one. I never realized how much I used this computer! I felt so disconnected from the "outside" world. Then the disconnect got even worse!

Our electricity went out in the ice storm. It went out about 2am Tuesday morning, and we got it back on Tuesday afternoon at about 4pm. The kids didn't seem to mind too much though. The later it got in the afternoon and the colder it got in the house is when I began to stress. Tim was at work--he is crazy busy at work when the weather gets bad, so it was just me and the kids. Brad brought us a propane heater, which was a lifesaver! When he brought it the temp. in the house was already down to 48 degrees. Brrrr. We bundled and managed, but are thankful for lights and heat again!

Speaking of ice storm, we have been out of school for 2 days. Any teacher's dream right? Not so much. The idea of being home is great, but the kids were stir crazy and are about to kill each other! We finally got out today and went to McDonald's play place(which has a whole other story to go with it--another post soon), and used up a lot of our stored energy.

Anyway, I'm so glad to have our computer back, and electricity for that matter, and am so glad things will be back to a normal routine tomorrow!

Oh--do you love my new look? Heather fixed me up with the new blog design. I love it. Thanks Heather!!
