I'm only asking because...well...we didn't for about 3 days. Wow. You know...in times like these, you realize that you never truly know how much you love something like that until it is taken from you. Especially when we are talking about heat. Warmth. In New England. In the middle of December. And you have 2 little kids with colds. One who is recovering from heart surgery. And your house is 45 degrees. Not. Fun.
Luckily, we went to our house on the cape after trying to brave 2 nights in the cold. Why did we wait that long? Who knows. I guess I thought that the power would come back on a whole lot sooner than it did. You know when you're sitting on your couch and you think, Now! It's going to come on right now! I can just feel it!! But...it never did.
I didn't even realize how severe the ice storm was until we went out to get coffee that first morning. There were trees and branches down all over the place. Well that and the fact that the entire world was at Dunkin Donuts.
Well, we are back home now and we are warm. We're watching T.V and playing on the computer. Our Christmas tree is lit.
Life is good.
