On The 9th Day of Christmas...

... we got our power back around 9:35 pm last night after nine long days of hell! I've never been so happy to be able to flush a toilet, have running water and be able to turn on a light switch in my life.

I may even be able to get past the fact that my car died on Thursday night after we took Tut to the vet and stopped to get some food. Yes, died... stranded with a dead battery until a friend came to jump start us. $184 later on Friday, I have a nice, strong new battery....

Between Friday and yesterday we got about a foot of snow and we are in the midst of another snow storm today that is set to bring 8 - 14 more inches. So maybe there really is a Santa Claus? If so, maybe he can help me play catch up... I have a tun of wrapping, packaging & mailing to do (not to mention last minute shopping for anything missing)... a fridge to finish cleaning out (hundreds of dollars in food went to the dump on Friday morning)... a house to clean up... about 10 loads of laundry to do..... so please do excuse me as I attempt to make my way back in to the real world before the hussle & bussle this week. I know I have tuns of blog reading catch up to do too... and Ravelry ... and Facebook... oh the simple pleasures of life that we miss when put through mid-evil like times. I have always said my second house has requirements - simple ones really - 2 bathrooms, a bigger kitchen and a farmer's porch. I've now added being on the same electric grid as a hospital to that list.

I am on a hospital's grid and it has been useless in blackouts. They have generators. Plan on adding that. I had no idea you were one of the victims of this storm, poor Nichole! We are also into foot #2 of this latest snow storm. Have you ever seen so much freaking snow??! It's downright comical, it never stops.
So glad your power is back. Merry Christmas to all pups and family! It will be a white Christmas for sure.
