Three Girls Camping

08 Jun


Last night (as if there is not enough going on in my life), there was a double explosion at our power plant.  Translated no power for 11 hours.  AGAIN NO POWER FOR 11 HOURS WITH TWO TODDLERS.    Consolation?  Red wine does not require refrigeration.

5:45 p.m. Tennyson hurls everything she has eaten for the past three days in the car — 1/4 mile from the house. 

Asked Landon to help watch Tennyson while I extracted the heinous smelling carseat.  She did saying “Mommy she go in biddy street … so many cars…. ”  WHAT?  I said WATCH HER — not send her to her death. 

6:30 p.m. — power out.  HOTTEST DAY OF THE YEAR — Temps?  UPPER 90’s.   Seriously are you kidding me .  Blackberry reports transformer explosion. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

6:31 p.m.  Finding corkscrew. 

7:30 p.m.  Tennyson late to bed.  Slip sliding over the sheets from lack of air conditioning.

7:45 Landon in basement bedroom to watch Monkey George (Curious George) after her water bottle bath because hot water is gone.   She screams up ” Mommy dis bed so comftable”

8:45 fight over watching another movie.  I win … for once.

8:55, 9:30, 10:05 — Tennyson crying due to heat.

10:06 — make Tenny bed on yoga mat on floor in basement.  Tenny much happier.  Sleeping.

10:10 — going through bills by candlelight — much more appealing when you can’t see the actual numbers.

11:00 — to bed with Landon in basement. 

11:31 – upper cut to my back.

12:11 a.m. jab to my forehead

2:10 round house kick to the abdomen

3:46 no injury but arm shield is up because my little kickboxer is moving again.

4:10 – Tennyson awake … again…. now in bed with Landon and me.  Super Fun and relaxing.

4:57 – finally asleep and I hear it — printer kicking in, computer beeping, TV blaring.  

                                  Mother of God — the power is back on.  Flipping CAMPING sucks!
