The Calm AFTER the Storm

Our town looks awful. Trees are knocked down. And, the ones that aren't knocked down look like they should be knocked down. While everything is thawing out, the electric company is scrambling to restore power all over our area. To tell you the truth, I'm extremely happy to be back up and running because now I can begin to fill the two orders I got while the power was out. I just hope that I don't get a negative rating. :(  Either way, I'm feeling very fortunate to have power back finally. I also got my chenielle in the mail (YAY!). It was a lot more than I thought it would be. Very happy. If you guys have any ideas for chenille besides scraves, let me know.

Anyhow, today when I got in my house, despite the fact that I left a clean house, I still had a laundry list (literally) of things that needed to be done:

Do 121 loads of laundry
Bring in the food that's been chilling outside. BTW, if your power ever goes out due to ice, put your food outside so it won't go bad. We only had one casualty instead of all perishables.
Unpacked the car.
Cleaned my dirty children.
Paid Bills
Checked and filled my Etsy orders
Caught up on a blog.
Started on Featured Etsy seller of the Day

There is nothing more comforting than knowing that I'm getting to sleep in my own bed, type on my own computer, lounge around in my pjs all day,and finally be in a room that separate from my husband and my son. Love them to death, but there's only so much time I can spend with them in one room.

Glad you got back in! Sometimes an inpromtu "vacation" is fun, but it is ALWAYS nice to come back home. (Can't wait to see my feature too by the way! let me know if you need anything else :)

I had a loosely knitted chenille bath sponge cover that was really really nice. Lost it in the most recent move. Made for a very frothy shower with little soap. If you make one, I'll order it. : )
