Happy Birthday, Mom!

Today is my mom's birthday - Happy Birthday, Mom!

It's also my husband and mine's wedding anniversary. We got married on my mom's birthday, which also happened to be her father's birthday. It's a special day. :)

One of my friends here at work was pregnant and I was really hoping she would end up having the baby on the 25th, too. But, the baby just couldn't wait - she was born yesterday. I mean, that's good and all, because my friend had been hoping the baby would come for the last 2 weeks and she was really ready to get it over-with, but still, it would have been cool to have yet another special event on the 25th. I guess you can't get everything you want.

Including power. Our area is now a small black hole in a sea of light and normalcy. I called Centerpoint yesterday just to make sure they know they missed us. I really don't know what their excuse was because Marxo was trying to talk to me and I couldn't hear the lady, but at least we're in their system now.

Last night was much cooler and we didn't have to sleep with the generator on. That meant we got nearly a full-night's sleep without having to empty the AC unit. (Except for the fact that my husband stayed up until 1am working on his laptop and I got up at 4:45am to get to work early...)

Anyway, as much as I complain, I keep telling myself that there are people who are a lot worse off than we are. We have many offers from friends and many other options available to us. And we've worked ourselves into kind of a routine. So, we're thinking even when we do get power, we might just boycott electricity out of spite! Har, har, har...
