I posted on Friday that we had just lost power. We finally got it back just after noon today. 88 hours! We are very lucky to have family nearby to help us out. We have a terrible record when it comes to power outages at our house. They are rarely fixed quickly. After the storm passed I went out to see if there was much damage. A tree had fallen on our neighbors house.

Monday offered a bit of normalcy for all of us. Parker went to daycare and Jimmy and I went to work. Then we all headed back to my parents for another night and did it all over again this morning (Tuesday.) Xcel had stated that most customers would have power restored by Wednesday night so I was trying not be too optimistic about having power, but it was back up when Jimmy got home from work! He still had to head back to my parents after picking up Parker since we didn't have any food in the house. We ate dinner with my parents one last night and then packed up to head home!

Parker was very excited to be home! He got the biggest grin on his face when he saw all his toys again.
I am also very glad to be home. While staying with my parents is fun, it's always nice to have home bed advantage! Plus they like having Parker around more than us I am sure!
Things I learned from the power being out for 88 hours:
We have way to many bottles of sauce/dressing
We have way too many jars of pickles
It may be a good idea to invest in a generator (once supply is up again!)
I have the best family ever!
