An app for that

At least I can blog. That’s about the only thing I can do. It’s been raining for 24 hours and the power has been out for 23. They hope to get the power back on by midnight. There were trees down all over the place. We’ve had nearly four inches of rain today alone.

I’m going stir crazy. It’s completely still and silent except for the rain falling on the roof and splashing in the puddles. I finally got dressed thinking that would make me feel like I had a direction as opposed to lying around in my pajamas. I was up at 7 something with the cat. I took something of a nap in the late morning, clinging to my phone so as to not drop my games of words with friends. I kept waking and clutching the phone when I would feel it slip.

Days like this when I have nothing to do to keep my mind occupied are dangerous. There are too many thoughts to sift through. Too many questions. All of the “what ifs” my brain can come up with. There really needs to be a switch to shut off some brain functions. In the mean time I’ll sit here and stew in my thoughts.

  1. I hope your day got better. I hate it when the power goes out. Actually, life is crippled when the power goes out.


  2. Rain makes things grow, even if it is just the water level in your pool. There is an upside to most things:)
    You don’t have to be alone, you know. You just have a different job now. That is really what this parental care thing is; a job. With weird shifts. Build your life around it and do things for you.
