wordless{ish} wednesday: we've got power!


after five days & five nights without any electricity in my entire neighborhood, the lights {& the heat!} are finally on at our house.  i think at the peak of the craziness, there were over 400,000 homes & businesses in the greater seattle area without power.  that's insane.

luckily we kept warm & were taken in by friends & family for all five nights.  but you guys?  it feels so amazingly good to be home.  i've had the heat cranked up to completely ridiculous levels in the house just because i can.  parker ran around from room to room scooping up his toys like it was christmas morning... he was so excited to be reunited with his stuff.  one thing that wasn't so awesome?  throwing away everything in our fridge & freezer & then going out last night to replace it all.  not the high point.  but climbing into my own warm bed?  pretty dang good.

and now maybe life will return to normal.  whatever that is.

  17. So happy you have your power back! And happy (and a little jealous!) you had friends to stay with! We lost our power in Dec and we're 4 days without, day 4 when our house was 56 degrees I was about to lose my mind ... and ready to book a flight to Hawaii ... and poof the power came back. But the cold, oh the cold. Anyway, enjoy your power and heat and keeping warm :)
