Into the Light
Last night our power was restored around 7:30 p.m. Oh how very happy we were. My husband and I were checking out and checking into a cheap hotel Tuesday and Wednesday. I would come over to the house in the afternoon and start the task of throwing away food from the refrigerator. Here are some thoughts and revelations I discovered:
-I love electricity, internet and indoor plumbing that works :)
-I do not do well under stress and become some what teary eyed and cranky (who me??)
-I found the most kind thoughtful people in unusual places, hotel lobby, restaurants to name a few.
-Kind words soothed my nerves and gave me a smile
-Neighbors-banding together, commiserating, sharing their stress-meant so much to me
-dare I say I see the glass half empty when there is no coffee and shower in the morning?
And now to my resolutions after the no power experience:
-I am not going to hoard food in the freezer and refrigerator. As I threw away package and package of good food gone bad, I saw someone who is not menu planning and using up what is available at her fingertips. Not doing that again.
-After eating out more times than I can count, I am ready for a detox of unhealthy food. I'm thinking of a lentil soup with a tossed salad on the side. Mmmm. Yum!
Most of all I want to thank each and every one of you who commented and wished us well. Your kind words and thoughts meant so much to me. I am truly thankful for your friendship. I am also thankful that our house is fine and overall we were spared any of the devastation that the east coast experienced.
I hope you have a lovely weekend :)
I will be visiting your blogs over the next couple of days, I missed my daily reads!!
