Hello, my friends!
I was most perturbed to find a power outage awaiting me when I got home.
I mean, it wasn't enough that one of my students stole my cell phone yesterday, and I was nearly flattened by an obtuse driver who switched lanes unsafely and then had the nerve to flip me off when I baby-tapped my horn to remind him I was there.
I'm supposed to be grading online discussion boards and outlines, packing for my Cincinnati retreat this weekend, doing laundry for same, etc. (Kind of hard to do without electricity.)
I'm supposed to be finishing up my reveal post for tomorrow. (Kind of hard to do without an internet connection).
And emailing my October projects to Kimber for the Hampton Art blog. (Also kind of hard to do without an internet connection.)
Since I no longer have my iPhone and the Internet was out of commission, I got back in my car and drove to U Indy to use their WI-FI connection so I could find IPL's phone number so I could call and report our outage. (I had to use my computer to make the call - I have a neat trick if anyone's interested.) They told me our power would be back around 10:45 p.m.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
Well, I'll say this much for them: they are very accurate - my power was restored at 10:57 p.m. (It's now 11:02.)
So I have light just in time to get ready to go to sleep!
Needless to say, the CCC will be delayed until late Thursday afternoon/evening or Friday morning. I apologize for the delay!
Oh, and if you're playing along this month and haven't recorded your card's arrival date, go to our online spreadsheet and look at the bottom. There are a couple of tabs - click the one for this month and add your info, please.
Thanks for stopping and have a blessed day!
