The boys thought it was a fun adventure. At first. Like camping. Now, I think the "fun" is starting to wear off. The boys' game systems are dead or have low batteries, the laptops are dead, mine & Ben's phones are off limits because we're trying to save the batteries, etc. We've played numerous games of Battleship, Go Fish, Left Right Center, etc. We even read aloud last night. I KNOW, I can barely believe it myself. Gabe even asked for me to read. Imagine that!
I know we're are not the only family without power. From what I understand Arkansas originally had over 190,000 homes and businesses without power. Now there are approximately 130,000 still without power, including the big Baptist Hospital in Little Rock. As much as being without power stinks, we are okay. We understand there are others that take priority. They'll get our power back on as soon as they can. In the meantime, I'd like to ask for your prayers, not only for my family, but for all of those affected by this storm. Actually, please pray for anyone struggling this time of year, whatever their struggle may be.
