this past weekend was horrible. Actually no. The horribleness started Thursday afternoon. Dallas has a HUGE storm Thursday afternoon that knocked out power all over the metroplex. (That would Dallas and Fort Worth and everything in between) I had to get ready for work Friday morning by flashlight and candlelight. I took a cold shower and my dry shampoo really pulled it’s weight. I’m also surprised my makeup didn’t look like a three year old did arts and crafts on my face. I had a granola bar for breakfast since I was trying to be optimistic and keep my fridge closed so some of the food could be saved if the power came on.
I got home Friday night and no power. I started reading a book by flashlight when I heard a beep. Then another one. beep beep beep My flipping CO2 monitor was going off. After 20 minutes of trying to change the battery and getting it to shut up I got really frustrated and just yanked the damn thing out of the wall. Turns out I’m the hulk when I need to be.
Saturday morning I woke up and still no power. I grabbed Winston and we went to the park. We stayed out of the house all day. I did get to go work out and have a hot shower at the gym. Oh I love my gym. Yall I didn’t have power until Saturday night. SATURDAY night. Everything in my fridge was spoiled. I had to throw away everything save the condiments. Anyone want some katsup?
I went grocery shopping Sunday, came home, put everything away, turned on some tv, and screamed as the power went out AGAIN. This wasn’t like a oh-I-stepped-on-something-squishy scream, nor was it a oh-no-I-dropped-this-cake-that-took-me-hours-to-frost scream, it was a ARE-YOU-EFFING-KIDDING-ME-IM-GOING-TO-BREAK-SO-MANY-THINGS scream. Seriously, I’m pretty sure my neighbors were wondering what was going on. It finally came back on a few hours later.
How did I celebrate? Watching Madam Secretary, having a glass of wine, moving my furniture around, and baking pumpkin bread and banana bread. I used a lot of power last night and I don’t give a fig about it.
My plan this weekend was to get this blog all in order and get my life finally squared away but that didn’t really get to happen.
