yaay, three arms

The power is back on!

I got up early this morning and went home to check on the cat. The porch light was on! Yaaaay! I went inside, sure enough, the lights worked! Yaaaay! It was still hot, though. So I turned on the air conditioner and closed the windows. Then I let the cat in and fed her. By my calculations, based on what the clocks said, the power came on about 9:30 last night. Sheesh, if we'd known, we could've turned on the air conditioner last night and moved back in today. Ah well, it should be cool enough to sleep at home tonight.

So, current plan: there's not enough time to pack up and check out before noon today, so we'll do that tomorrow. Mom is certain that Dad will want to sleep in his own bed tonight. And so will I! The bed at the hotel is way too saggy and uncomfortable.

This means we'll be paying for two nights but only spending one night at the hotel but oh well, it's not like we can't afford it.

Also I think I'll be able to log on from home tonight and get back on IRC! This should be the last time I find myself forced to post to LJ from this Apple store in the mall. Also I drew some cartoons I want to scan.

Back home now!

Just got a bunch of stuff dealt with and now I'm relaxing on the computer.

Good thing we didn't empty the ice cube trays; the ice in them melted, but then refroze. So we have ice! I had to get the huge solid slab of ice out of the ice bin, though, by repeatedly pouring hot water on it.
