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