He blessed me with a day off!
Last night around 9:40, our power went out. It did not come back on until 3:40 this afternoon. The power was also out at school, so it was canceled meaning no rushing around to get ready (although if Uncle E hadn't called & told me school was out, we'd have been there early), no Spring Musical, no planned events. Instead I got to load up all our food in coolers & take it to Busha & Bucka's to stash in their fridge (thank you, Lord for grandparents with an extra fridge!!). They were one of the lucky homes to have their power come back on at 4:30 this morning.
So the day was spent cutting up magazines to make collages, teaching BabyGirl to make paper beads, reading, lounging about, breaking up the occasional argument, and washing dishes while Bitsy dried.
I needed a down day. This wasn't what I had in mind, but it sure fit the bill.
