I'm Counrty, But I Don't Like To Rough It.

When do sleeping photos cease to be adorable??

Friday evening we lost power. I had such a crappy night. I barely slept a wink. It had been freezing rain the whole day so EVERYTHING was coated with ice. Probably the reason we had no power. It was insanely windy and all night all I heard was ice breaking and shifting on the roof, ice falling off tree branches onto the roof, tree branches breaking onto the roof. *sigh* It was an extremely loud, restless night.

Come Saturday morning I was tired, haggard, and in need of a shower and a cup of hot coffee. Neither of which I got because the power was still out. Boo. The kids were rowdy, I felt greasy and disgusting, the bathroom smelt like un-flushed pee all day,  and for some reason I developed really, REALLY bad dry eyes. I'm talking blood shot, itching, burning, couldn't even cry if I wanted to dry eyes. Cold weather? Dry heat space heater? UGH. My eyes are still killing me today. And I can't keep my eyes pried open long enough to get the eye drops IN my eye to help give me some moisture and relief. The only good thing about Saturday (other than the sweet photo I took of Molly passed out on the floor with her baby on her chest!) was the breakfast dinner Sammy made us by hooking up the generator to a griddle pan and cooking us french toast, sausage, and eggs.  We ate our delicious breakfast dinner by candle light.

We decided to let the kids camp out in our room for the night. Just as we got their blankets and pillows all set up on our bedroom floor the power came back on, lol. We let them camp out anyway. I was soooooooooo glad to shower Sunday morning. 24 hours without power isn't a huge deal, but I do prefer my modern day luxuries. ;)  Now it's back to the daily grind. Anthony was delighted to returned back to school today. The main roads are clear and our road and driveway are clear enough for me to force my Focus down it.....hopefully I wont get stuck. I'm crossing my fingers for no more snow, rain, and ice! I love being home, but I don't like being STUCK at home.

With love,
Mama Hauck


  1. Too cute!! I love how kids can fall asleep in the strangest places!

    And I totally agree with you. After a day of no power, I'm ready to shower, and get out of the house!!

    Good luck getting out, and hope you have a great week!! :)

  2. Sounds like there's never a dull moment in the Hauck household! You certainly have your hands full my dear.
