* FYI: I am totally breaking the rules, again. The following events occurred back in March 2010*
* Also, Ziva and MWJ are totally psychic because we are in the midst of Hurricane Sandy, the worst storm in history to EVER hit New Jersey. And I can almost guarantee we will be IN an actual BLACK OUT when this blog post goes live.
After managing to survive a complete power outage, and total BLACK OUT, and one that lasted for three consecutive days, it’s fairly safe to say I would never be able to handle living within the ‘Amish Community’.
I had no idea just how much I depended on electricity, until I didn’t have any.
Thankfully, my family members had a much better sense of humor about the whole situation than I did.
But, rather than writing an entire blog post complaining about how miserable I was, or, about how I felt completely lost without the use of a blow dryer and hot rollers, or, how I am incapable of getting ‘Outside Coffee’ unless I’ve already had ‘Inside Coffee’, or, how having O.C.D. and the need to put all of my things exactly in their proper place at all times came in really handy when I had to find my keys in the pitch dark, so I could charge my iPhone in the car, or, how having hundreds of candles lit sent me into a full blow panic attack because OH MY ZOD ALL OF THESE OPEN FLAMES ARE A TOTAL FIRE HAZARD AND EVEN THOUGH I’M SCARED OF THE DARK I AM EVEN MORE SCARED OF BURNING ALIVE. Or how it was IMPOSSIBLE to start a NEW ROLL of toilet paper, especially when it doesn’t have the starter flap, forcing you to claw violently at the paper, until you rip enough to create streamers, leaving you with something like this:
I am not going to write about any of that.
Instead, I would like to present some Video Footage.
I think the lyrics my son and my brother wrote in all of Two Minutes properly summarizes our experience.
Obviously this was filmed in the daytime.
* I am participating in a 30-Day-Photo-Challenge along with these fine people.
