For those of you who still poke around here, you have noticed that there haven’t been any posts for the last few weeks. This isn’t for normal reasons of laziness, but lack of time. Many of you have heard of how sick Leah has been with her second pregancy. It has been quite a trial for us, but God has been faithful to bring us through, providing a lot of support through our church family. We were slowly counting down the days until we were able to go to NH for our early Christmas trip. The intention was to post some more once I was home. Funny how the best intentions become impossible.
I had been looking forward to the moment when we would get home and I would hand Leah and Micah over to her family and then go and collapse in a bed and sleep for a week. Between waking up to get Leah something to eat at 2am and waking up to take Micah outside for a walk to loosen up his cough at some point in the night, I hadn’t gotten much sleep. I was eagerly looking forward to putting ear plugs in, sleeping forever, and working off the fat I had stored up for hibernation.
Well, about two minutes after walking into the in-law’s house in NH, while we were still hugging each other, the power went out. On top of that, they had just got a new wood pellet stove that needed electricity to run. So we bundled up and waited for the power to come back on. We waited… and waited… and waited. Then we found out that we’d be out at least a week and we all moved to Leah’s grandparents whose house was unused and had gotten power back. I don’t feel too bad, considering almost a million customers were out and thousands aren’t going to get power back while its still 2008.
Just in time for us to take off for my sister’s house (she never lost power as she lives so far north), their power came back on. So even on vacation, I haven’t been able to post much. Not that I think anyone cares.
