I'm just glad that we had turned the fireplace on before the power went out, so at least we had one warm part of the house.
And now we have power, and heat, and internet, and school in the morning. Hallelujah.
In other news, our furniture finally came! We ordered a new couch and chair two months ago, and they were custom made just for us, and they are beautiful and glorious, and SO SO us. It makes me feel like a real grown up, because four kids and a mortgage isn't enough of a reality for me.
ALSO: tomorrow is my anniversary. 11 years, baby.
