Still Catching Up...

I wish I could devote more time to blogging these days, but the best I can do is to post when I can.

Stay tuned...

The Sound of Silence

I hate thunderstorms. They scare me. I'm sure it is just a phase, maybe I will out grow it when I am old enough to turn off my hearing aids and take off my glasses. I will admit that daytime storms slightly better than nighttime ones on the fear scale... but not when the power goes out in the middle of "Diego".

Yup, that's what happened today. Just after the storm blew through, while Mommy was putting the Dandilion down for his nap, we lost power. I guess this must have been the first time in recent memory that it had happened because the Tumbleweed just could not understand why Mommy could not "fix" the TV. "But why, Mommy? You can do it. I know you can." (quoting "Little Quack")

Since it was almost naptime for her anyway, I convinced the Tumbleweed that it was a really good time to sleep. For some reason she decided to listen to me (a rarity at naptime) and for the first time in nearly a week she actually took a nap!

With the gift of two sleeping kids, I put my feet up on the couch and listened to the rain. No kids talking, no TV, no baby monitor, no computer, no fans, no phone, no dishwasher, no nothing! Very relaxing. I even caught a nap myself :)

Thunderstorms & power outages might not be so bad after all

I'm SOOOOO Jealous! we lost power yesterday too. Gavin went to sleep, I finally got Luke down, Gavin wakes up 10 minutes later, and falls back to sleep 5 minutes before Luke wakes up. I then put them both in the car and went to D&D because there was no way I was going to survive the afternoon without coffee!
