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?
