Monday, Monday

Well, the week got off to a raging start for me around 4 am today.  I was awakened by A – calling out to wake us and inform us that the electricity was off.  Sigh.  She unfortunately got herself so worked up that she didn’t fall back to sleep, for the rest of the night.  Double sigh.  

Further complicating the power outage was the fact that we have a well:  no power = no well pump = no water.    Such a delight.

Breakfast time and still no power.  Lucky for me there were a couple of dry crusts of bread.  Hungry yet?  Not so lucky was the 1/4 cup of all natural peanut butter left at the bottom of the tub.  I absolutely love all natural peanut butter – except for this part.  So I try to spread it on the dry bread crusts.  It is like a couple of peanut globs sprinkled on the dry bread.  And then I try to pass it out with a smile and overly cheerful ‘ don’t you just loooove peanut butter’.  They weren’t buying.  Made me dump a bunch of honey on it as well.  All things considered – that was a good compromise. 

When you start the week like that it’s bound to improve, at least a little, at some point.  And the good news is –  we are back on the grid!  And boy do I love electricity and plumbing!!!
