Sorry I’ve been MIA. Hurricane Sandy hit my area last Monday around 4pm and I lost my power at 11am on Monday, before the storm even hit. Ack! I’m am now on my 9th day without power but luckily, my parents live nearby and they never lost their power. My situation does suck big time but I am far luckier than other people who have lost everything. My parents never fail to never let me forget how grateful and lucky I am because they are nearby and have heat and everything. I AM grateful and I AM thankful. If it weren’t for them, we’d be stuck in a shelter somewhere, or hotel or just freezing in the cold. *sigh* Meanie, my boys and I miss our home but it is way too cold to go home. Now the munchkins and I are sick so it’s best that we stay in the warm house. My mom is saving me a lot in the middle of the night because BB hasn’t been sleeping well so my mom has come to help me. Thank God!! 🙂
JCP&L (our electric company) says that we’ll get our power back BY Wednesday but that’s what they’ve been saying since last week. I’ve heard from CB’s daycare owner that the reason why we don’t have power in our area is because the substation has been severely affected by Sandy and the soonest we will get our power is NEXT WEEK. WTF. FML.
At this rate, we’re going to have to cancel our weekend festivities – Football Sunday/My birthday/Mrs. Prindables House Party. How ironic I finally get chosen to host a House Party party and I am not able to host a party because of lack of power. Ugh. I hope this doesn’t hurt my chances of other parties. This sucks total monkey balls.
I am back at work today – that’s how I am blogging. Ha ha. I am behind on my blogs and reviews. I finally finished the book I received from the Cravebox Book Lover’s box and will need to review that. Oh! Cravebox changed the way how they work now. There are no longer monthly subscription boxes, just boxes in general that you have to enter a drawing to win. I won the drawing for the Cooking Light Cravebox that should be arriving this week. Looking forward to that!
The Mrs. Prindables House Party package should be arriving tomorrow and I just need to figure out where I’m going to keep it cold. I guess I could just keep it in my garage because it’s so freaking cold in my house now due to lack of heat. 😦
So stay tuned and wish us luck in getting our power back. 😦
