Last night got weird, y’all.

So last night, our power went out around 8:00…And my first thought of course was MY FOOD.

Priorities, you guys. Priorities.

According to the AEP website, it wasn’t coming back on until noon today. WHAT.

But it’s summer, and it was still light out, so I found all of the flashlights in the house, NONE OF WHICH WORKED, even after changing batteries. But then I found my Halo backup charger, which doubles as a flashlight, and works just fine. Also pulled out a few candles and put them by my bed.

I took the dog on an extra walk, because she was going nuts following me around the house as I looked for batteries. Plus it was light out until like, 9:30. Everyone in the neighborhood was outside, but it was so hot and sticky and buggy and gross…Also everyone is younger than me and they all hang on their porches drinking beer while I’m working, so I don’t feel like we have a ton in common. Yep, I’m the old almost-30-lady hanging out in her dark house alone with her dog. LALALA DON’T CARE!

ANYway, I got back from the walk, twiddled my thumbs, and then remembered my many electronics that ARE charged. I gave my Kindle a boost from my Halo, and did a little reading that way…

The biggest struggle of the night was that without the TV on or any other ambient noise, the dog heard EVERYTHING, including everyone talking outside, and kept barking. UGH. So I opened my mostly-charged laptop, and broke out the old iTunes that is really a time capsule to my college/just after college days. I mean, before spotify…iTunes. It houses the playlists of the shows I was in, of my friends, my moods, my boyfriends, my breakups…you name it. My favorite playlist is “Ingrid and Sara” aka every Ingrid Michaelson and Sara Bareilles song I have on one playlist. I fell asleep with this playing to keep the dog distracted…

So reading by candle/kindle light, listening to memories, the dark and quiet of the house…all of it made for a weird but really pleasant night. It’s for the best that I missed the Bachelorette. Brain cells die when I watch it anyway.

OH AND THE POWER CAME BACK ON AT LIKE, 1 in the morning! Yay! My food is fine, don’t worry. Sorry I held you in such suspense throughout this whole post…
