The Darkest Night Comes Before the Dawn

Since I'm posting twice on one day, read the previous post first.

WE HAVE ELECTRICITY!!!

Today is Sunday, which means we were without power for 6 days and nights. This afternoon we went over to Gil's classroom where we all took naps and Gil and I got some work done. We came back home about 5:3O, and I saw our outside lights on. I gave such a shriek that I almost gave my poor husband a heart attack, who later told me he thought we were being robbed or the house was burning down.

Since being home, it's already gone off again for a half hour, so I have my doubts as to whether the problem is really fixed. But for now, I am enjoying life.

...cold drinking water...warm shower water...fans...the washing machine humming away...the ability to keep leftovers...my husband home tonight!

The simple pleasures of life.

I am thankful!
