Blogging In The Dark!

We had an ice storm yesterday and our power has been out for 24+ hours and I realized how dependent I am on the internet. For the first 17 hours  I had NO internet access and to say I was fidgety was an understatement! No less than 8 times I moved my mouse on a dark computer just out of habit!

I’m now blogging in the dark on the last of my laptop battery (my wonderful husband charged it at work) and my backup Wi-Fi battery is on it’s last legs.

So while I don’t have a beauty update today, I do feel fortunate that I’m at least able to blog.

Fingers crossed that tomorrow I’m back up and running! Is anyone else out there in the dark?

    That sounds horrible! I know I freak out if I don’t have internet too. I think part of it for me is just knowing that I can’t use it if I wanted to. That bothers me. Plus, not having power in general makes it worse because it’s so boring. What did you do for heat? We had our power go out a few years ago for 12 hours due to a snow storm. It was so boring, but we also didn’t have heat, so it was freezing cold in the house. I was bundled up in bed the entire time and was still shivering.

  2. We were off school today because of the terrible wind too and only lost power for about an hour, but even then I was wondering what to make of myself lol

    I am so with you, I lose my mind when the power is out! After Hurricane Irma, we were without power for 8 days, and cell service was incredibly limited. There was absolutely NOTHING to do and without having access to the internet, I about lost my mind. We’re so spoiled with access to everything at our fingertips. I am glad you are back on!
