Okay, still no power, and the electric company says that we won't have it back until THURSDAY
Living in a house with no power leaves few options for food, entertainment, etc. So John and I came up with a solution to benefit both of us - separate.
His parents have power and they live really close to the school where he teaches. My parents have power and they live about the same distance that we do to the hospital, plus our houses are pretty close to each other.
So John just left for his parents' house, and I am back at my parents' house until the power is back. Funny thing is - my parents are still at work, and have no idea that I am temporarily moving in! Aren't they in for a treat!
