Day 10 w/o power & my house smells…

I still don’t have power. It’s getting closer, the houses in the back of the subdivision now have power.

Yes… my house smells like dog butt. Sad, but true. The two greyhounds are really gassy girls, and with the lack of A/C & air circulation, the house just stinks. Their beds need washed, but it cannot be done until there is power. I need to run the Vacuum, and will prolly hook that up to the generator tonight.

My fish are all alive. There have yet to be casualties. In fact, they are doing so well that they are multiplying. I saw a molly pop out a baby this morning when papa turned on the generator.  Oh the fun…. I’ve been giving fish away like mad. As soon as we get the pond repaired, they’re going to go in there. I’ll just pick out the ones I like and put the rest in the pond. That’s what one of my friends do, for she also has guppies that multiply.

So… I’m here at work enjoying the AC and the Internet. I never thought I’d see the day where I’m thrilled to go to work and look forward to Monday morning. *sigh*

Nonetheless, those power guys are working overtime. Hopefully they don’t forget about us…

    Hi Fizz,  Happy to hear from you.  When our power goes out we have no water as we are on a well.  I am glad that you have water at least.  Sorry it has been so long, that is really a hardship.  As you say "Happy to be at work".  Take care and I hope all is on when you get home today from work.  Penny

    I now fully understand how bad it must be for you.  If you looked forward to going to work on a Monday that says it all!  Hopefully you’ll be next in line.  I sure hope so.
