and...now we're here
I've lost my little man. He's growing into an inquisitive, curious, amazing, smart boy. Right before our eyes.
So that's the condensed version of him turning 1. I'll come back with more detail after things settle down from the storm.
On to Sandy and Frankenstrom. Unless you live under a rock or something, you know that there's this hurricane Sandy, that's heading up the east coast. And you also know that it's merged with a nor'easter. This has huge implications for us, here in 'Lil Rhody. Nick's volunteered to be recalled should his unit be needed. But at the same time, it's possible that once he gets to work (civi job on the sub base near here) then he may be stuck there until Thursday. Either way, it's going to suck. Nick got our generator working to day (Thank you Jesus!!) so tomorrow while he's home, he'll show me how to use it, and what can and can not be plugged into it. Unfortunately, we don't have it hard wired to our house, so the only things we can use it for is the fridge in our kitchen, the deep freezer in the basement, the sump pump if we need it, and the stove or microwave. I'm not looking forward to this. When it happened last year I was 36ish weeks pregnant. We had no power, no water (we have a well, and the pump doesn't work without power) We were without power from 11am Sunday morning until about 4 the following Wednesday. It sucked, but we got through it. I know that we will this time, too, but it feels different this time. I'm not sure if it's because we have Aidan now, or because there's a very real possibility that Nick won't be home with us for ANY of the storm. I don't know, I just know that I'm going to be super happy when this is over.
I'll catch back up with you once things settle from the storm, and give you a better update on Aidan's birthday. Have any questions? Leave them in a comment, or email them to email@example.com We're working on our next installment of Ask The Browns'!
