During the whole party/ event the lights stayed off. We hung out for 4 hours with flashlights. It was kind of camp fire like and actually ended up being a lot of fun. I wished I hadn't spent so much time cleaning up yesterday as no one could even tell that I had mopped. But oh well. Jared's policy friends were really nice. I love how they try to include me too.
That night we moved Luke into the pack n' play in our room because his room is cold anyway, but without any heater is frigid. Since he won't keep blankets on himself we redressed him by adding socks and a long sleeved onesie to his sleeper.
The electricity was out until 11 o'clock this morning. Luke and I were pretty dang cold in our house by then because our entire apartment is run by electricity: heat, stove, you name it. I had on a beanie and Jared's sweats. Luke was wearing the onesie, 2 pairs of socks, his sleeper, and a jacket with the hood on. We spent the morning cuddling on the couch under a quilt reading books. I was sooooo glad the heat came on before his nap. What a crazy lot of hours.
And today when the rain had stopped and the roads had cleared, I ran to Target to update our emergency storage: candles and more batteries. After 4 straight hours I'm sure the ones we had will soon be ready to retire.
