We knew in advance. They sent us letters and they even called us on Friday to let us know it was going to happen. Yet, when Sunday morning arrived and the power went out... I was surprised.
Maybe it was my half asleep state...
Maybe it was because I only skimmed over the letter...
Maybe it was because my husband is the one who answered the phone...
Ok, so maybe it is nothing more than I am forgetfull and didn't want to think about facing a torturous day without power or amenities. If we would have remembered, we would have planned better.
Ah... but that wouldn't have made nearly as good of a blog post either!
I mean seriously! What would I have said? Yep! The power went out. So we went to Disneyland. End of story! Boring - I know!

So we got a chance to clean the house. What else were we going to do? There was no power, but at least we had water.
We wanted to leave and escape the house, but since we forgot about the power outage, the car was stuck in the garage. (Sure, we could have manually unlatched it... but it wasn't worth the effort or the possibility of breaking the garage door. We are just good like that!)
So instead, we did things that people used to do. We went outside and played. Rode bikes... jumped on pogo sticks... jumped rope... and even went for a walk. We came back in and I taught my daughter how to play cribbage. My husband read a book.
People used to survive like this. NO TECHNOLOGY! They used their bodies and their imaginations.
Made me wonder.... It was just so quiet. Is this what it would be like if the apocalypse happened? Without the zombies of course. I can only assume they would be noisy.
|Would you stop with all the moaning|
and groaning. You are going to
wake the kids!
We are STILL ALIVE!
Which is why, for Music Monday I choose the song Still Alive from the game Portal.
Hope you enjoy!
