Not Cool

In more ways than one.

First of all, It was 107 degrees at my house yesterday. Must I remind you that it is the end of September? I'm trying not to complain, because we've had a really mild summer this year, but seriously?

The second thing is, our power went out at 7pm last night and has yet to be restored. That is correct. 18 hours without power. Again, trying not to complain because I know that like, a bazillion people all over the world live without electricity on a daily basis.

But one of the things I'm really good at is complaining.

And really... Three kids under the age of four, in a house without fans, or air conditioning, or a working refrigerator, or a freezer, or a microwave, or a toaster, or playhouse disney so that I can have some peace and get a shower... you get the idea.

Not to mention that I had JUST been grocery shopping.

So I am super grateful for in-laws that live within 2 miles of our house that are willing to store our newly bought food and let us soak up their air conditioning while they are at work.

Am I using this as an excuse to not work out this week? Of course.

And we may or may not be attending the all you can eat buffet at Round Table Pizza again tonight.

P.S. Normal, blogger commenting has returned. Thanks for the input. Comment away.

My heart goes out to you. Living without power is miserable...especially if it's hot. It sounds like you're in survival mode, and who wouldn't be under those circumstances? I hope your power is restore soon.

jealous of the nearby inlaws. we are so spoiled by a/c though, I'd be incredibly whiny w/o it. We had to turn our heat on yesterday . very cold here in nw ohio.

Wow! 107 is scorching! This past winter, we had 12 hours without power during a nasty storm. Our friends went a WEEK without power and without the ability to leave their home - they couldn't get up the hill to leave the neighborhood. The first thing they did when they were able to leave was to buy a generator!

Hope your day is mucho better tomorrow :)
