SO glad it's Monday!
--Got stuck outside during a hellacious ten-minute storm that blew through Central Ohio on Friday evening. Luckily, we were just north of downtown and shielded from things like flying trees and dumpsters. Wet and twiggy, but no worse for wear.
--However, I am still without power at my house, with all of the downed trees and power lines, exploded transformers and old, ratty infrastructure. This is one of the times I wish I still lived in the "bad" part of town - never went more than 12 hours without power, ever.
--The lack of power means just about everything in my fridge/freezer had to go. Since I hadn't been to the grocery and I never feel the need to have a billion pounds of cheap junk in my house, I'm only out $50 in food total.
--Not having a billion pounds of cheap junk in the house means that I am eating a lot of take-out and PB & J. Also, no means of making coffee at home = $$$.
--Being a YMCA member has its advantages. Like being able to take a warm shower (with lights!) before work. Things like brushing your teeth by candlelight get old after the first time.
--Going to Cedar Point on the 4th, then to Cincinnati on Friday. Trans-Ohio travel FTW!
Hope you're having a great holiday week!!!!
