Our little outing to DC yesterday warranted a full day at home for recovery.  Seriously, I was totally beat and ready for bed when the sun went down.  Convenient since we had no power and only 2 flash lights between the 3 of us.  Note to self: buy more batteries for flash lights; also, candles.  We did manage to stay up late-ish and play card games which was loads of fun in the dark.

Juice’s alarm clock has a battery in it that is supposed to remember the time (but not display it) until the power goes back on.  Our power came on with a whump in the middle of the night.  I turned on the fan because I was hot and went back to sleep.  Juice got up when his alarm went off.  The clock said it was 6am.  He came downstairs and glanced at his watch.  4:30am.  Oops.  He ended up at work before 6am today and worked over 12 hours.  I’m not thinking that battery is working too great.  It’s brand new.  Maybe it’s the clock.

We have introduced the kids to the video game Pikman and they are LOVING it.  It’s what we played all day long.  We also made cookies, totally awesome dressing, and blueberry casserole.

I think we’re mostly recovered and ready for our next adventure!

    Why is there no recipe for blueberry casserole? Is it like cobbler?

    p.s. ElCid is cursing you right now because I’ve decided I want benches, with storage, for my table instead of new chairs. :)
