The winner, etc.

And the winner of our Anniversary Giveaway is Jolie! Congratulations, Jolie! I'll be in touch with you about your custom jewelry.

The last couple days have been pretty crazy. There was a big (but short) storm here Wednesday afternoon which left our power out from about 3 until midnight. Keeping three kids occupied during an entire afternoon of inside-with-no-electricity is not easy. Naomi didn't sleep well because she was kind of freaked out by the whole thing. Even during the daylight hours she wouldn't be more than a few feet from me. Asher just didn't understand why he wasn't getting his afternoon TV time and was pretty mad at me about it. Isaiah was only upset because I couldn't warm up his bottle like usual. The night's entertainment was me falling asleep with Naomi at about 8:00 and Richard asleep on the couch. At some point I woke up for a little bit - long enough to read an entire "Real Simple" magazine by flashlight. When the power came back on at midnight we were all asleep in bed. Unfortunately, half the lights were on. The boys room and the master bathroom were the most disturbing ones. It was...shall we say... not a fun night. But I guess it could have been worse. I guess I should be thankful the power was back on by the next day. Especially since it was nearly 90 degrees yesterday. I admit it, I love technology. I'm glad I wasn't born in pioneer times. I am way too much of a wuss.

Of course you don't miss it until it's gone!!!!!! I meant to say:
realize how much you need it until it's gone. :)
