Stick a Fork In Me

Cause I'm soo done with this no power business!! We have a generator, but it's only running the fridges and whatever we need for a short time. It sucks. We're on day 4 of this and sounds like power won't be restored until Sunday...Nice. We sent a bunch of trucks down to Texas. They are sending some back. I still can't believe that IKE got all the way to us and knocked us on our butts like this. I can't believe part of Ohio is in a State of Emergency because of IKE. It's just crazy! We have an all electric house, so we have no hot water and that is the biggest pain. We can't cook. I did finally realize I could use the crockpot. We were able to use part of the grill to boil water to make instant potatoes and stuffing. The rest of the grill is useless, so we can grill out. Eating out is getting old. So I'll try to figure what I can crockpot for dinner tonight. It was glorious to get a shower at the Y last night. Makes you feel so much better and more human to wash your hair...

Aren't I a genius to reheat the food I cooked on the grill?? I know, slap me a high five!


The kids are enjoying this, it's not really bothering the little ones. The big ones, it's sucking for. But what can ya do? Steph is freaking about getting her hair done and straightened. I said it's power outage hair week, deal with it! She's not buying it.

In other great news, Steph decided to pierce her bottom lip with a needle last night. Fabulous...Can we see an infection coming from this? I sure can...Why can't teenagers have intact brains during this fun time of their lives?? Seriously.

Okay, I was gonna post that you are a genius and go on and on for your survival skills, but I laughed when I heard about the pierced lip!

When I was slightly younger than Steph, I decided I wanted a pierced belly button. I took a long sewing needle and a big round earring and after about an hour, I had it through. I took it out the next day when I couldn't even sit down :) Completely idiotic, but something I'll never forget!!! I thought I was the only one to pull that kind of stuff.

Would you like to come use my shower? Do you need to catch up laundry? Heck you can cook dinner here too! I am serious! Bring the littles over and they can play while you wash a dry away...

Well look at you!! Your genious. But I'm lazy and still would be eating out. So you get extra props.

I'm dumfounded by Steph, the things kids will do with no electricity! I hope she doesn't get an infection, but kind of do in hopes it helps her learn a lesson.
