Power Outages

After reading Kristen's blog, I was comforted to know that I'm not the only one who reports power outages. Jason always makes fun of me when I report them. He says that everybody is reporting them. My fear is that everyone is sitting at home thinking that everyone else has reported them and that the electric company is in the breakroom having coffee and donuts thinking all is well.

I am the person who lights a candle and pretends to be camping. Break out the cards and read a book.
