What next...?

You would not believe the week I've had. First off my job situation, which I thought was decided two weeks ago, turns out was not decided at all. There were serious communication issues, but it is all resolved now for the most part. If you want a fair dose of righteous anger, please ask the details.

I also spent the whole of last night after getting home from work in complete darkness. A huge storm rolled through Phoenix starting at around 8pm and @ 9:30 the lights went out in the apartment. I didn't get home until around 10:30, but the power was till out down the entire street. My roommate had jumped ship to her parents house before I got home, so I was alone. Didn't think much of the lights being off seeming as I was headed straight for bed. So I showered my flashlight and then stretched out in bed. Granted the apartment was warm for not having air conditioning for over an hour, but I didn't mind the temp... it wasn't that bad. I fell asleep around 11:30pm and fell asleep easily enought... BUT I woke up again at 1:45am completely awake a ready for the day (too bad it was still 5 hours of night-time away. Ugh. I could not fall back asleep... by then it was warmer, the power was still not on and with the complete lack of airflow and deafening silence I could not get comfortable... I also want to take this time to tell you that my bed squeaks. I dozed every few minutes or so into 30 seconds of "sleep" and during one of those "sleep moments" the power sprung to life all over my apartment. It was 3:30am and besides the lights coming on, the fire alarm beeped three times which seriously stopped my heart and took time off my life expectancy. So I was again more than awake... now out of fear. I was awake trying to get my internet to work (of course post power coming on), reading, stretching, staring at my air vent, praying, praying for sleep, etc... all this until 5AM!!! FINALLY I fell asleep until 7:30am when I got up for work.
Surprisingly, I am not tired yet... totally awake. Maybe I need to have insomnia more often.

That's all I got... between crazy work drama and power outage that is my life.

You know you can always pop on over and sleep in "Emy's" room when the power goes out next time.

love you,
your bestest Mom

Oh dear. No AC in August--that's just unnatural!

Every summer our power goes off at least once and it's always at night. I am proud of you for staying there! You are such a trooper!
