What a day. In addition to it snowing like crazy this morning I had another adventure. We live "off the grid" which means we make our own electricity. We do have a few solar panels but as you can imagine, with all the clouds and snow we get we have to have something else as well. We have a generator/battery/inverter system that makes most of our power. This morning, the generator would start but would not stay on!! The company that services our generator is a good three hour drive from our house. My poor husband didn't get home until 6 am, was dog tired, and had to work again tonight. So ... we called a friend who helped him load the darn generator in the back of our car and off I drove ... after going to town once to take my mom to work (the roads are too bad for her to drive right now) ... to the Onan dealership!! The good news is they were able to fix it and as I type I can hear the sweet hum of the generator!! YEA!!! So ... I had a total of 8 hours of driving today and 3 hours of shopping (had to do SOMETHING while they worked on the generator ... poor me!!!).

The shopping part was fun!! I don't have to buy in the big girl's section anymore ... so that is cool. I pored through the sale racks and ended up with 2 pair of pants and one sweater. As I looked at myself in the mirror I couldn't believe how good I looked!! I sort of began to see why my hubby tells me I'm "skinny" ... it felt so great to see myself and feel good about what I saw!!

I'm glad to be back home though. It was a long day. Tomorrow hubby and I will be spending the night out! We have a class to take on Sunday together so we're staying in a hotel and going out to eat tomorrow night and who knows what kind of trouble we might get each other into!! LOL!! We haven't had much time together for months now so we are both looking forward to our weekend. He's been working nights since November and unfortunately we haven't had overlapping days off this year ... it will be fun to see if we still like each other ... ha! ha! I'm just a little nervous about splurging by eating out but I know it will be fine. I'm just going to go enjoy myself. Well ... I've rambled on long enough!!! I hope everyone else had a much less eventful day!!!
