It’s getting hot in here

After 5 nights of no power, one of them spent in the shadiest hotel in NJ, the heat is finally back!  This has definitely been a trying experience and I am glad I do not have to become a permanent caveman.  I have a new appreciation for things like hot water, lighting a stove without a match, and ice cube makers.

Part of me really did appreciate the chance to disconnect.  And yes, I was still tweeting up a storm and texting/calling friends the whole time.  But I didn’t suck away time messing around online or watching tv.  I finished 5 books, 2 of them on my list of 100 classics to read before I turn 30.  I played some awesome board games and enjoyed getting to cuddle up in front of the fire every night.

I will definitely not miss needing a flashlight to find the bathroom or wearing 6 layers of clothing, but maybe I’ll start disconnecting completely once a month or so.

PS Sorry I know this post is super lame and it’s only Day #3 of NaBloPoMo. I literally wrote like 23 drafts and I feel all of them require more energy than I have in me right now.  But at least I’m posting!
