guess i should do this now while there’s power in case it goes out again later. it’s already come back on 3 times, but only for 5-15 minutes before shutting off again. so i better hurry with this to get it in in this little window of time 🙂 also charging up the phone while the electricity is on as well.
i am totally dependent on electricity. how sad. i couldn’t even fall asleep because there’s no fan. i couldn’t pass the time away on the computer. i had my phone, but there was no service, so no internet that way. there’s all the apps i have on my phone but after playing a few, i thought, i better save the battery in case the power never comes back on.
well, i hear the fan starting to slow down again, so i think it might be another power off thingie so i should sign off. but at least i got something for today up 🙂 i was panicking and kicking myself for not posting something earlier yesterday!
. . . . . . . .
feeling a bit guilty as i’m reading everyone’s tweets about not having power yet. the power stayed on for good after i typed the above, at about 2:30am. we were lucky, especially since we were one of the last ones to lose power, as well, so i don’t think there’s much spoilage in the icebox and freezer. so, teşekkür ederim, for that! someone important must live around here! 😉
even with the power coming back on, i just couldn’t sleep, so i don’t think i did so until about 4ish…and woke up for good at 11 *sheepish* (was woken up at 530 by a txt from sister saying their power had just come back on, but went right back to sleep afterward). i then read all the tweets about how people still didn’t have power yet. yikes. we had power all this time (clock hadn’t reset since i had set it at 2:20) and i was just sleeping away. well, charging stuff, too. but you know what i really like? it is sooooooooo quiet outside. very quiet!
i’m still kinda iffy about using things with power (i say as i type this out on the laptop that’s plugged in!). i even turned off the fan, and am not sure about firing up the a.c. the only thing going on power right now is this laptop and the icebox. well, at least it’s not like my neighbors last night–practically all of them still had their christmas lights going full-blast and my upstairs neighbor was thumping out his music and no one seemed to care the rest of the island didn’t have power…until we lost it. 🙂 then we just had to deal with teenagers driving by in their cars and setting off fireworks every hour or so–loud, explosive bangs, followed by their hoots, and then driving off, then by various neighbors’ voices shouting expletives at them, all the way until 4am. but yeah, even with the power on now, i hear no cars outside, i hear no kids playing, i hear no music thumping from upstairs. it’s nice and peaceful and serene.
i wonder how long it will last.
