All was great this week until a little storm named Hurricane Sandy decided to pay a visit. Fortunately for me I only lost power for a few days but unfortunately many in the tri-state area were not so lucky. DH blames me for the power loss when I exclaimed "I bet we will lose power as soon as the xbox decides to finishing updating". Long and behold that is exactly what happened. He will blame me for the power loss for the rest of my life. Despite the fact that it was a rough week I am thankful for the time I got to spend with my family. There was a lot of wine, a lot of talking and a lot of just spending time with each other which rarely happens in everyday life. While there were lives lost and homes destroyed I have to say that Hurricane Sandy brought me the greatest gift of all. For the first time in a long time I got to spend quality time with DH and Rubi the Cat.
