Things I could have done without this weekend...

1. The power going out about ten minutes before dinner was finished, and staying off until the next day. The power went out in three whole counties! I can't even explain how dark it was out on the street. With nothing but a sliver of a moon last night, it simply took my breath away.

2. The snow, and below freezing temperatures. Our heater has an electric ignition, which won't work without that good old electricity. Luckily the house didn't get too cold overnight. We made sure the dogs slept with us though. Simply as a precaution of course.

3. Our sewer main getting backed up and the basement flooding. What can one say? Having an inch of water standing on the floor you mopped the day before, and not being able to use the only restroom simply cruel.

4. Fletch tearing up the guest bedroom and momentarliy forgetting that he is supposed to be potty trained. Poor, poor dear is getting so restless. He needs to get out and run around. But with the remnants of his cough, I can't allow the cold weather to make him any worse. Vet appointment tommorow morning though. Hopefully he gets the all clear!

Ummmmmm.... Yeah. I think that's about it. 

Everything else is pretty good. :)

'til next time...


  1. oh wow, it sounds like you have had an eventful weekend. How often do they have blackouts, not often I hope. I guess it can only get better from here, eh?

  2. This is the first blackout we've had since we've been here. It seemed like kind of a big deal, so I don't think they happen often. At least, I hope they don't! The worst part was Todd has been out of town, so he comes home on the weekend just to deal with this!!!

  3. Oh no! Hopefully not sewer ‘water’? That is horrible, no-good, beyond-awful. So sorry to hear about the house mishaps.


Your comments simply make my day!
