My power just came back on about 20 minutes ago. It has been out since Sunday morning! My house is freeeeeezing and since we have a well....we have had no water too! sucks big time! Last night I slept over at one of my new friends house with all the girls so they could have showers/baths and wake up to a warm house. I am so grateful for the friends I am making up here. I can't imagine having done all this without support! I was pretty miffed at BC Hydro, they were not so compassionate to me crying on the phone about not having heat or water ... no water! imagine if you will 5 girls in one house not being able to flush toilets! like oh.my.gosh. The high today is -10! so I am thankful that the heat came back on before my pipes froze! It is snowing again now.
I love modern convenience and made me SO THANKFUL to live in this century. Laura Ingells I am not! It was quite overwhelming without J too. Well he was home for the weekend and now has gone back up to work. He was thinking about flying down to the coast cuz his gramma is in the hospital and not doing so well apparently. In the end he decided to just go back to work cuz he figured his gramma will not recognize him anyways but it was not an easy decision to make. I think if she is really not going to make it then he will fly down from work. His gramma has been sick for a really long time. I can't imagine what it is like for his grandpa to watch his loved one deteriate like this.
My weekend with J was eventful as always. Seems we don't have many dull moments around here. He decided to surprise me and came home a bit early on Thursday which was so wonderful. Friday morning he went out hunting first thing and called me at 8 am to come pick him up because he slid off the road into a ditch.....he needed to be towed! We couldn't get someone there til Sat early evening cuz he had to get a 4x4 tow truck and surprisingly they are scarce up here in the white north??!!! who would have thought that?! not us! we also had to pay extra $ cuz BCAA wouldn't cover the 4x4 tow!! ok $$ grabbers! that also meant that we had to keep the rental SUV a few more days which also meant more $$.....so J said to me "I think God is trying to tell me something!".........ya hunting is expensive and we have yet to have any edible meat!! yeesh......good thing I loves that man. To top it off Aunt Flo visited with us this weekend too making me a little grumpy and feeling down. Then add NO power to our big Grey Cup party with over 25 people at our house including a wack of kids and I have had full counters and no clean dishes since Sunday! You know we are the hostess's with the mostess's for having a grey cup party in the dark borrowing a generator to watch the game on our big screen tv.....no heat just game! yah we know how to throw a party! now 2 days later I still have to clean it all up! again thank goodness for dishwashers and hot water!
