No power?!

Let me just remind you that we have a bun in the oven... AND I AM THE OVEN.


Tonight, Chad is at a VW car show at a local Sonic Drive-In. It's just me, the dogs, the cat (who thinks he's a dog) and Spike, the bearded dragon. At a little before 8:00 tonight, the power went out. I was like oh crap, the breaker tripped and I have to figure out how the freak to reset it... I don't want to call Babe because I don't want to be that one nagging wife who calls her husband 85 times while he's out for his one guys night that he was really looking forward to... I don't want to be that wife that they talk about...

So, after a few minutes of trying to find a lighter (using the light from my cell phone) so that I could light the TWO candles that we have, I looked out the window and saw some of my neighbors walking around outside so I was like whew... I won't call him. It's not just us. So then, I call SRP (electric company) and have a "hold time" of 18 minutes, according to their recording. So, 25 minutes and 31 seconds later (according to my cell phone timer), I finally talk to a girl and she tells me that they are HOPING to have the power back on by 10:00 tonight, she wasn't sure what happened but normally around that time if the power goes out, someone has hit one of their lines. Not cool. So, about 5 minutes after that, I had to call Chad. I was bored and hot and sweaty. I had to tell him that it effing sucks when your power goes out when you are 9 months pregnant, you are bored, and hot and sweaty. I needed to vent. I think Chad has magical powers that calm me down.

I got off the phone with him and I shit you not, 5 minutes later, the power was back on. Whew. I just wanted to let you know that I LOVE MY AIR CONDITIONER. AND MY CEILING FANS. AND MY REGULAR FANS. ESPECIALLY WHEN I AM 9 MONTHS PREGNANT!! Too bad none of them work when the power goes out!! ;o)

P.S. Yes, if you add up all of those minutes, the power was only out for about a 1/2 hour. I know, I'm a wuss.
