39 Hours without electricity can teach you a lot.
Like how ill prepared I am for natural disaster.
How often I wash the girls' hands and face with the quick turn of the faucet.
Laundry and dishes seem to stack up faster.
The house becomes a wasteland of desperate dirtiness.
My kids are more resilient to coping without it than I thought.
There are still plenty of other things to be done without electricity, especially when there are branches/sticks to pick up and a garden out of which to clear debris.
Or how grumpy I get when there isn't the convenience of electricity flowing throughout my home.
A reminder that I am human and quite clearly was not designed to live in a different time era. My unwashed hair that was doin' its own thing was a testament to this truth.
Lastly, I take the power and workers that keep it coming to my house every day, for granted.
Stay tuned for photos from our Great Staycation last week,
aka The Fun Before the Storm.
**By the way, if you live under a rock like I did for a few days, Kim Kardashian had her baby girl last week. We can all rest easy now, can't we? Dare we hope we don't see any more about that woman? That was the longest pregnancy EVER. Of course now she and the Kanye will just monetize on their baby 'North'. Oh joy.
