2. Given that we were there and not here, we did miss the earthquake. Reports from family were interesting and somewhat amusing; for example that shaking was initially blamed on my nephew by my mom until he pointed out IT WAS AN EARTHQUAKE!
4. Not anticipating a storm we had done the usual pre-vacation eat down the fridge and so were in need of some food. Upside ~ less food went bad, Downside ~ husband driving in tropical storm winds in search of an open store while I try and convince our 3 year old that despite the noise outside and the fun of walking around our house with flashlights she really does want to go to bed.
5. No power for 48 hours ~ creative menu planning, gratitude for battery powered entertainment options, and intensive education on candle safety with a certain little girl.
6. If it is September then I'm mom to a nearly one year old. How? I remember this phenomena with Lisbeth, the newborn period a tiring blur, the search for a routine and the new normal, and suddenly a year has gone by.
7. Happy Weekend!
