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!
