We are all up now and playing in my well lit and cozy warm house. It is easy to take things for granted so tonight I will say a prayer for all those without the basics and for how blessed we are.

I have to thank God and Central Hudson for electricity. Last night while I was getting ready to snuggle into my warm bed our electricity went out. I panicked as I thought about how cold it could get in our house. The only thing I could think about was my little Girl fast asleep (finally) in her crib in the next room. What should I do? Run to my husbands parents? It was 11:30 pm. Pack a bag and go to a local hotel? That would be silly if the electricity came on quickly, plus I would have to wake the baby. Should I grab her and bundle her up and bring her into our bed? That would wake her up. I sat there paralyzed not knowing what to do. I called CH to let them know about the outage and waited and waited. The lights popped back on after 1 am only to snap off at 2 am then back on at 4 am. This woke The Girl up at 4 am, I fed her and crawled back into my bed to get some sleep. The alarm went off at 6 am for church but I checked on hubby who was sick on the couch since 1 the previous afternoon. I decided it would be best to let him sleep and get some more sleep myself.
