power outages suck... [Oct. 2nd, 2009|07:35 am]
Verminius Rex
Our power was out for about 3 hours last night. Getting the kids to settle down and sleep with no background noise was not the easiest. After it first went out we hit Wal-Mart for some small cheap LCD lamps that gave adequate light for what is usually under a 3 hour outage. Now I need to put them out of Pari's reach or she'll play with them until the batteries are dead and they will be lost or useless for the next time we need portable light. I also need to restock our supply of glow sticks that I keep around for a similar situation.

Bagel baking begins in about half an hour, I'm aiming for at least 12 dozen and will see how I feel when that many are done. Need to get my citrus while the first batch is on the rise so I have lemon ginger and cranberry orange available.

Oh, and 9 days until the Lawrence Zombie Walk.

That Bargain Depot on E. 23rd (is it still open?) used to have in the camping section some really cheap little battery lanterns that put out a lot of light.
