We had massive storms in Chicago this morning. It was a record for ComEd in the number of folks left without power. We lost ours in the first 3 minutes.
I had to cancel my work from home day without power. I may slack when I work from home, but not having an internet connection is a dead giveaway.
I said good bye to all the fresh groceries I had put into the fridge yesterday in my new Effort to Eat Healthier. Waste of money. I put my dogs in kennels in the dark with a flashlight, hoping the batteries would last until power was restored. Guilt.
I got dressed in the dark and put on clothes that did not need ironed. I had product-free, air-dry hair that I went to sleep with wet the night before. Ugly. I gave a brief prayer of thanks I was not born in the 1800's.
It was a loooong and very hot day.
Toddlerina picked me some flowers when we came home from school.
Can you see how beaten they are? Past their prime? Hell, one of them has no petals.
Sentimental fool that I am, I send you all my very best withered, tired, but oh so beautiful flowers.
They made my day.
