Good and Bad

Good thing about having no electricity: my house was cleaner than usual. Apparently boredom leads to cleaning.

Bad thing about having no electricity: we got very tired of eating plain peanut butter and bread. Let's just say that our culinary options were few.

Good thing: we got more sleep than usual.

Bad thing: we had to go to bed much earlier than we like.

Good thing: candle light is pretty.

Bad thing: candle light is insufficient for reading.

Good thing: it was peaceful.

Bad thing: no music except the few times I played the piano.

Good thing: the girls played outside more than usual.

Bad thing: the girls stank smelled "outdoorsy" more than usual.

Good thing: I didn't have to do laundry.

Bad thing: I couldn't do laundry.

Good thing: fewer obligations.

Bad thing: church was cancelled Sunday night.

Good thing: family togetherness.

Bad thing: family togetherness.

Good thing: not so much time wasted playing around with various computer things (email, blogging, etc.)

Bad thing: too much time to fill. No blog. No news. Very few connections to the outside world.

Yes, it was an interesting experience and no, I don't want to do it again. Any time soon. Or, you know, ever.
