Well, That Was Interesting...

...we had a major storm here last night. Sky turned black and the rain fell in sheets. I instantly felt as though I was inside of a car wash when I looked out my windows. Our patio umbrella was up and I really thought the whole set was coming through the slider. Alas, Steve ran out and saved the day, but just then the power failed. Lights flickered on, off, on and then gone. Nathan, my sensitive guy, was a bit freaked out. Meanwhile, it was still relatively light outside. Giggle. We decided that the kids and I would go to Nana's for the night. Steve stayed to bale out the basement. He carried a million buckets of water out of our house, trying to avoid flooding.

The power was out for about 24 hours. I decided that...I am not good with straight down time. I wanted to scrap, wanted to work, wanted to clean...had to sit around. I am not good sleeping on an air mattress. Ouch! I am not good with spontaneous change of plans. And I am a homebody.

But we survived. And now tonight, even though I am home in my fully lit office, I am too tired to scrap. So I will post a layout instead. My creative daughter has deemed Nonnie the teacher of all things. She makes up fairy tales about their adventures and has apparently learned a variety of interesting facts from her. Except that most of it is made up! LOL!

So of course, I had to scrap it! I used the amazing June kit from the Nook. They are having a DT call, so get your stuff in ASAP. I love Cosmo Cricket and the Early Bird collection is officially my favorite!!

And after wishing the lights were on all day, I am now turning them off and going to bed. In my own bed...Sweet dreams!
