Today has been a CRAZY day......I had BIG BIG plans to clean my house today. Yep, might sound silly to plan a day to clean the house but life has kept me from vacuuming lately
.....so today was the day.
No more had Emma started the vacuum when the power went out. I literally had just finished putting soup in bowls for lunch and it was out. Normally it wouldn't have bothered me much but today
I HAD PLANS TO CLEAN
....and trust me, that does not happen often :))
So, we read books, watched a movie on Em's computer until the battery died, went out for a loooong dinner and came home to light as many candles as we could find
(which is a lot 'cause I like smelly candles)
Poor Emma.....She had invited Mackenzie for a sleepover and now we're bundling up to stay warm. I offered to take Kenzie home, but what a girl...she thought it was a fun adventure !!
So I gave everyone flashlights and when I went to Em's room to check on them I found this......
They were huddled on the floor in her room playing Operation by flashlight.
I absolutely LOVE how kids find the fun in EVERYTHING.....
So it's been a little over 8 hours now....and they say (1) more to go. We'll see.....
My laptops' battery had enough time to post this with about 3 minutes left. I'm going to read by candle light and hope that the power comes back
before the groceries go into the green bin !!!
Wish us luck......
