After a long, stormy day of errands, we arrived last night to a house without electricity. It’s a rare occasion in spite of our back woods living. Man was it dark!
To alleviate the creepiness, we sang silly Christmas carols while blundering through the house. Armed only with a dying cell phone and Christmas spirit, we gathered supplies (keeping in tight formation).
A toasty fire, ice cream and blankets and one Bad Kitty graphic novel later, it’s was all giggles and fun.
We played a not soooo long game of Life–thanks to the not always so fun uber-competitors under this roof. Seriously.
If the drive to succeed is the only issue in my life, then we are truly blessed. Good, bad, fun or not; we have a solid roof over our heads and food + ice cream in the fridge. Globally speaking, that’s pretty darned cool.
So now the house is a mess, there’s dishes to do. No complaint here, just a quiet Thank You. Merry Christmas, everyone. Please stay safe, it’s ugly out there.
