Ice came from everywhere and out went our power at 2 a.m. Monday morning.
Surely, it will be back on soon, right?
We didn’t get power back until almost 5 p.m. We were freezing but other than that it was a wonderful day. Even the kids thought so. They said it was one of the best days they’d had in a long time.
I thought a day without TV and video games would mean total agony for the kids. But it didn’t. They played all day long and never once complained. We read books together, they built Legos, they did a craft, we made cupcakes for Olivia to take in to school for her birthday, we chilled out. And it was awesome.
I guess our power went out for a reason, huh? We needed that lesson!
