Living in the dark ages

Just after 10 this morning, our power went out. Called Craig and found out it was the entire grid. Lunchtime came around...still no power, so I took the getting-antsy children and hubby out to lunch.

No power all afternoon. That meant no computer, no housecleaning, no getting into the refrigerator, no electronic entertainment for the kids, and one very short-tempered mommy at 5:00pm.

Craig calls and says Andy is wide awake (his workbuddy from the UK who is here a week for business) and is joining us for dinner. No power means we're going out.

I got home 15 minutes ago to find power is *finally* back, so now I can try and get things done that I didn't earlier. The Legions chapter is done...on paper. So I'm going to transcribe it tonight and get it up later. Andy's over so he and Craig will likely be playing Xbox until all hours.

Oh, and kallysten? He brought 2 jars of Nutella with him. You need to e-mail me your addy again so that I can get them out to you. :)

Off to get the kids bathed and to bed so that I can come back and hug my laptop properly...
