Strong storms blew thru here last night and as a result, I have no power. According to the power company, it’s supposed to be up later tonight (fingers crossed). Hubby’s got his gas powered generator going (he was really tweaked he could finally use it – we’ve had it for over a year) and I have 5 critical things plugged into it. The fridge, rechargeable camping lantern, Pretty, my iPhone, and the fish tank. The fish tank was hubby’s doing – apparently the kidlet’s 2 goldfish (Goldie #1 and Goldie #2) outrank the TV or a fan. It’s supposed to hit 90 degrees here today, so soon the fish are going to have to do without their little waterfall filter.
In addition to having the forethought to purchase a gas powered generator, hubby earned even more BJ points today by surrendering his wireless card to me. *g* Who needs power from the power company? I have my laptop, my phone, a wireless connection, and cold cans of diet coke. Oh, and he took the kidlet to my mom’s house for the day (she has power). He’s so awesome! I will admit, I keep turning on switches in the house. And yes, I have that ½ second of ‘huh? Why isn't the garbage disposal working?’ before I remember – yep, the power is out.
Since I have a quiet house for the next few hours, I’m going to work on His Client. Later tonight or tomorrow, I’ll get the post up for Convincing Arthur. I had planned to write it last night, but got distracted by the whole power being out thing.
I hope everyone is having a great weekend!
