We were without electricity this morning for maybe five hours.
It quickly revealed how dependant our household is on electricity AND water. That, and that my kids would in no way be able to function without either.
Admittedly, I think my day just starts off better with electricity flowing through my household. Monday just starts off better with it too.
I need my shower and my coffee ASAP each day.
I'm reminded how grateful I am for the luxury of running water to wash the mountain of clothes that fill my laundry room on Monday, to wash the dishes that didn't get washed last night, brush my teeth, flush the toilet, shower and to fill the coffee pot.
It made me think that perhaps I should write a thank you note to the power company thanking them for the daily gift they give me with electricity.
But I think I already do that by sending them a check each month.
The first things I did when power was restored: brewed a cup of coffee and took a shower.
NOW, I can begin my day!
How's your day going so far?
Happy Monday Everyone!
