Thankfully despite scary 40-50 MPH winds we survived just fine. We brought all the outdoor chairs and furniture inside. Put the toys in the shed, stocked the woodpile, filled the flashlights with fresh batteries, and made sure we had plenty of wood for the fireplace. And amazing ( and thankfully) enough we didn't even lose power. I think its because Mike told me that if we did lose power he was buying a generator ( it would be the third extended power outage in the 1.5 years we have been in this house) and frankly I would much rather put $400 in my hardwood floor fund than to buy a generator. Schools were closed for 2 days and other than the 200 something sticks I just picked up in the backyard and the piles of leaves everywhere life continues on as normal.

In other news Keira and Mary are adjusting to school and I am adjusting to my new title of chauffeur. Israel and Nairi have deemed school pick up time as snack time and the floor of the van and their carseats now have enough crumbs to feed a small daycare. And I think I have come to realize that what I thought was witching hour before was just a precursor The hours of 3 -5 pm are nutty around here. Everyone is tired and cranky, there is homework and dinner prep and aye yi yi. Its nuts. I have never been so glad to see 7 pm.
