bada boom, bada bing!

ooo it was so creepy last night!  
the girls and i were just watching tv and BOOM a flash of green light!
lights flickered on and off...
maya comes screaming over to the couch from the table...
another BOOM and a BANG and another flash of green light!
lights flickered on and off and then nothing.
darkness.
the girls started crying and of course wanted dad...
who wasn't here.
to be honest, i wanted him a little too.
it was creepy!
thankfully it was bedtime so i got them each a candle,
tucked them into bed, 
assured them it was all ok.
then i crawled into bed, 
got freaked out by every noise,
and read old country living magazines by candle light
til i couldn't hold my eyes open another second.
i hate it when the lights go out!
did i mention the wind was also howling??


hope you are somewhere nice and toasty warm!
