Winter sucks the life from our tree...

It all started Monday night with some snow and ice and a phone call from EVSC that there would be no school Tuesday, and it went downhill (weather-wise) from there. Tuesday night/Wednesday early morning we lost power and by 9 am, the house was 57 degrees and we were packing to move to Princeton for a few days. We came back Thursday and it was 44 degrees in the living room. By Saturday, it was 41 degrees in there. We lost our fish to the cold...Lauren cried and cried. We had a funeral and promised a new fish or two and she pepped up. On Saturday afternoon about 4:30, Vectren held up it's end of the bargain and restored our power. YAY!!! We were lucky to only lose a few groceries and freezer items.
Today, we are getting some groceries and snacks for the Super Bowl and have a Junk-Food-Bowl and a good time at home.
Tomorrow will start our first "normal" week in three weeks. Malee is home from the hospital and feeling much better, we have power, Lauren should have school again...ah!
Life is good!!
