Ten Days- Nothing

So I guess when they said we'd have power back on Friday it was a lie. With no power = no water. We are miserable. We called all day Saturday and they tell us we have been moved down the list- to MAYBE Thursday. But it's just an "Estimate" you understand. I am so angry I can't see ... I am so upset, I can barely breathe. All I did Saturday was cry. I finally came out of it enough to sit on the back porch with Conrad and play Battleship for a couple of rounds ... I won TWO of THREE. So I guess I'm the champ, for now ... then the mosquitos came. I don't know if we have ever been this miserable.

The water in the bathtubs is getting low. I'm starting to worry about flushing the toilet and since we have no fridge, we're still eating out. It's getting expensive and I don't know how much longer this can go on. Even when the power does come on, do I have the money to replace the food? Conrad says we can- just slowly.

I miss my house. I miss my life. I am so very depressed.
I just can barely get out of bed.

and oh yeah- the Cowboys beat the Packers. I guess there's a silver lining.
