So last night our electricity went out. It got hot while we slept and it was way too quiet. Plus the wind was howling from Dolly. All of this means no sleep. Our fence blew down (it was terrible to begin with Josh had it rigged) and we lost lots of branches from our tree but other than that Dolly was no big deal. OH... and 6-8 inches of rain. So... on with my story. I thought for sure we would have electricity by morning but no. So we went to my moms because she did have electricity and I couldn't cook breakfast. 11:00 still no electricity so we went out to run errands and finalize all the stuff for the BIG sleepover tomorrow night. (What was I thinking) Took Lolly to guitar lessons, got home still no electricity. Our house was HOT and muggy. YUCK! I had to stay home though because there was tons to do. The boys couldn't sleep at nap because they were hot and the house was too quiet. At 2:30 we finally got electricity. It took an hour for the house to cool back down but we are finally cool. It is really hard to care for four kids with no electricity. We take so much for granted. So I am off to bed and really tired. My little girl will be seven tomorrow. I can't believe it! and I have to hit the ground running to make her day very special. Oh one last thing....I still can't find that DARN snake. Don't you think he made his way outside? Surely? Right? Lots of Love.
