I got up this morning, got the kids off to school, came home and was getting ready to do day 23 of the bootcamp. I walk into the den, and the power goes out. Bummer. So I stand there waiting, and it tries to come back on, but no, there it goes, right back out. So I stand there waiting for a couple of more minutes, hoping that it will come back on so that I can get my workout done. Nothing.
Well, good time as any to head to the grocery store. So went grocery shopping. I use easy shop, where you scan your items as you shop, and then pay for them on the way out. So I tried to use that, my card was not working, had to get it reset. Said it had to do with the store losing power, no big deal to get it reactivated. Got my shopping done and head back home. The power is back on! Checked out the clocks in the kitchen, and the power had on been back on for 11 min. Good timing! Put the groceries away and get the workout completed!
Then off to do the 30 day challenge on the Wii. What a frustrating workout. The Wii was not recognizing that I was doing the exercises. Get only half way through and had to get my son off the bus. We get home, and I start lunch, and try to get the rest of the workout in before eating. I gave up, it was too frustrating. As I was turning the thing off, my son (5 yrs old) says "Mommy, it needs new batteries." Ugghhhhh. That is probably why I was having so many issues. Why does it take a 5 yr old to figure that out. Well ran out of time anyway, so I will replace the batteries when I get home and try again.
Then got into work, and the rain and wind that we had last night and today wrecked havoc with the circuits and we were busy all day long.
