Power Outtage!

This is SOOOO ANNOYING!! But on the other hand Bryanna is the cutest! When the light or the TV doesn't turn on when she attempts to, she says, "That's ok, Daddy can fix it!" Our Power is still out, but thanks to Mark's handy dandy work laptop, his wireless internet is feeding my blogging habit!

With out power...

~I can't take a hot shower...bummer! (guess I'll just be stinky all day!!)

~No TV, lights, or cable.

~No phone land lines...thank heaven for cell phones! (can't seem to live without them these days!)

~I can't put in the laundry (which I just finished my last load last night, phew! Too bad there is always more tomorrow.)

~Can't run the dishwasher (I was able to run it last night, but it's never ending!)

~Fridge and freezer isn't working...hope the food doesn't spoil.

I guess I don't think about all the modern luxuries until they are gone. Thank goodness its just temporary. I don't think I would have made it as a pioneer. On the bright side, at least we can flush the toilet and wash our hands:)

I know!! What the heck!!! I thought it was very funny that our stake had the emergency preparedness drill on the morning that our power goes out for hours!!
I think we are going to get a generator now!

Oh Stacy I hear you!!! In January we had a power outage that lasted 32 hrs. It sucked. Some people actually went with out power for well over 48 hrs. We are now much better prepared for these kinds of things because of it!!!! I hope you get power back soon.

I know just what you mean. I am NOT pioneer material, and I know it. I am far too accustomed to the luxury we live in without even knowing it! No power stinks! Hope you have power soon!
