We have power!

Yes! We have power! While I was at work on Friday, I got a phone call from the nanny saying that the lights were working. I wasn't sure whether or not to believe her, but Fellan got on the phone and said, "We have bright power!" and Marxo told me that the fans were "going really fast!"

I still hated to get my hopes up, but after I had put in my time for the day, I hurried home to see if it could possibly be true. When I drove up, I pushed the garage door opener and it opened. I just about started crying.

We spent the rest of the weekend trying to get things put back together. It took me two full days to finish all the laundry and we're still not completely "there", but we did retrieve our salvaged food from the in-laws' apartment and have stocked up again with the normal essentials: milk, cottage cheese, jelly, grapes, and parmesan.

Tonight, we have to head over to the inlaws' place to help them get their TV up and running again. They returned last night to find their place just as we and the apartment management had described it (livable, but not really completely put together) and were horrified that their TV wasn't working. Oh for geez...
