it could be worse....

So today started out kinda poopy. I was feeling a little poopy, losing patience with my boys, stuck in a hot house with no car (car at mechanic again!) etc etc. I was going down that downward spriral of feeling sorry for myself and why can't things be like how I want them to be. So in the middle of my wallowing, just as if God was saying "you know it could be worse..." the power goes out and it was out all afternoon! So this means of course no light, no fans, no fridge or microwave for lunch, no tv, no computer and so on, and more importantly no car to get out of the neighborhood. And as my luck would have it Jake was 2 hours away in San Juan. So the boys and I opened the front door and with that and some window light we played games all afternoon. All in all not a bad way to spend an afternoon. Then hours later the power comes back on and suddenly I'm thinking things aren't really so bad after all...

Oh Carolyn! You guys are such troopers! Hope you had fun playing with the boys. Was the pool closed???

Lina! I'm sorry about the power. At least being outside is usually cooler than inside. I was wondering why I didn't get any IM's from Jett :)

Always putting a positive spin on things, that is the Carolyn we all know and love!!! Way to stick it out.

Hello to my fellow "cool cousin crusading the countryside!" I'm glad I found your blog. I've been wondering how you are doing in Puerto Rico. I can't even imagine. Ririe, Idaho, is about as foreign as I can get, I think. Can't wait to read more of your posts!

Hello. I found your blog via wonderful Christine. I love reading about your life in Puerto Rico. I would have a hard time with no power and no car too!
