Down But Not Out
We’re still without power, last I heard, and every time we call AEP they seem to put off the “final customers return to service” estimate by another 12 hours.
I had a patient cancellation at work just now so thought I’d let you know we’re okay–just sort of out of our rhythms and tired of eating soup.
The freezer leaked water (condensation) across the kitchen hardwood floor, I discoverd in my sock feet in the dark-cold this morning at 5 a.m. The milk we left outside on the porch was frozen solid. The keronsene lamp went dry about 30 minutes before there was enough light to see without it. Peanut butter was the best I could do for lunch. Man, is this about to make you weep or what!
I left for work in time to get a shower here before my first patient. And until this blessed no-show, there’s been a steady stream of clients since 8:00.
Oh how I hope to drive up and see a light on inside at Goose Creek. If not, I’ll certainly finish my book, eat my soup, and go to bed early, hoping for better fortune tomorrow–heck, maybe even blogging from home!
