The morning sun reflected off the bay, into our room, bounced off the mirror above the dresser, and began searing a hole in my eyelid.
Gosh, I'm such a liar, you'd think I was into sci-fi or something (I'm not). I've just been married to Dirt for a while, I think I may actually be starting to make up an alternate reality. In truth, I had been up half the night because I was sharing a full size bed with Avery and Amelle and I couldn't wait for the night to be over. As soon as sunlight lit the room, I grabbed my cell phone off the nightstand and dialed home. Four rings later, I was greeted by my and Maya's voice recording. We had electricity!
KSeas and offered up our house to them - showers, warmth, lunch, technology - they were still without such things. By noon, we had a full house. By 2pm the kids were decorating sugar cookies.
By 2:03pm Maya was eating her hair.
By 2:05pm she had figured out how to get through the hair, and was licking frosting off of her fingers.
Don't you just love a happy ending?
