I know. I missed yesterday. Again.
But this time I have a good excuse reason. You see, we were in the middle of a typical evening. Sitting down relaxing a bit after a busy day. I was finishing up processing on the days photos as the kids were playing wii, and then off to the blog.

Why couldn’t the power go out when there was daylight! Our only light was my laptop screen, and it’s battery would only last about 10 mins, so we had to find more light quick. Not as easy as it seems.

But he wasn’t home. And I have no idea where our flashlight storage center is. But I’m fairly certain that it’s out in Matt’s shop – not somewhere I was going to go in total darkness – after all, I don’t want junk like flashlights cluttering up the house.
