Just a quick note to say that after 12 days we have our power back. We've emptied the refrigerator and cleaned the bathrooms, turned the heat up and retrieved our bird Kirby from his exile to my mother's house. I'll have pictures to share soon of both the storm damage and of what I did manage to work on during our "indoor camping trip from hell". I am going through the photos that I have taken as well as trying to catch up with the news and it is taking me a little longer than I anticipated. We have laundry that's piled up and the refrigerator needs to be restocked. The recycling container is quite full of empty jars and bottles.
So to my blogging buddies, I hope to catch up with you all very soon. I've missed you all.
