This week, our lovely power company turned off our electricity for about 24 hours. It was quite a trying experience, especially for our children, who think that if you don’t have any electronic devices, your life is pretty much over. “I’m so BOOOOORED!!” was the call du jour.

So that was fun.
Compared to all that, nothing else this week is even worth mentioning. Tune in next week when (hopefully) there will be a longer post. However, next weekend is also my birthday weekend, so I make no promises.
