Friday Free-For-All – 11/30/18

Friday Free-For-All

I’m trying to get back to blogging a bit more regularly. As you may have noticed from the whole two posts this week. Go me! I missed checking it with you all, but I’m still struggling with what I want to share these days. Life with a non-sleeping baby makes it really hard to accomplish much, especially working out. I’m so exhausted most days that the thought of running or trying to go back to CrossFit is laughable. But I’m still here, still living life, so I’m trying to keep blogging.

Fall didn’t last very long in northern Vermont. We’ve had heavy snow cover for several weeks already, and I don’t think it’s going away any time soon. While I’m sad about the shortness of my favorite season, I’m already excited for Christmas, so I can’t be too upset about it.

Our house hasn’t had power since early Tuesday morning. All of the heavy, wet snow led to some power outages in our area. Because our heat, water pump, and stove are all electric powered, it means no water, no heat, and no cooking. Thankfully, my in-laws only live 15 minutes away, so we’ve all been staying with Grammy and Pop. I am so blessed to have such a great relationship with my in-laws, and they are wonderful with Vera. My father in law brought his generator to the house to power the small propane heater on our porch and our freezer to keep the pipes from freezing and protect our food. Fingers crossed our power comes back soon!

Have you ever had to deal with an extended power outage?

    So sorry about your power woes 😦 We have never lost power for more than a day – I recall a ‘April 1st blizzard’ back in the early 2000s in Mass where some peope lost power for over a week. It is awful – even one day was a challenge with two toddlers!

    Fall, yeah – my assessment was that I turned to say ‘hey, it is starting to feel like … ‘ and then I turn back and we got 15″ of snow and it hasn’t gone above freezing since.

      Losing power with one kiddo is bad enough, but two? Yikes. Thankfully we got power back around noon today, but more snow is coming and our electric co-op is already warning that there may be more outages this weekend 😫

      My in-laws are as great as they possibly could be, but being at someone else’s house with your infant is super challenging. Thankfully power came back this afternoon, yay!
