After somehow managing to survive a complete power outage, 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.
So, 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 OCD 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 black, or, how my whole family camped out at our local Country Club known as KHCC in their respective corners and on their respective computers, or, how having hundreds of candles lit sent me into a full blow panic attack because OH MY ZOD ALL THOSE OPEN FLAMES ARE A TOTAL FIRE HAZARD AND EVEN THOUGH I’M SCARED OF THE DARK I AM EVEN MORE SCARED OF BURNING ALIVE.
Instead, I would just 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.
