O.K. I have been wanting to do this for ... a long time but finally tonight I cut off the power to all but the kitchen major Appliances. (Fridge and
freezer) I am online in a crazy corner of my home and the house is BLACK! or should I say DARK really dark. Thank goodness for the almost full Moon
giving some light but most curtains are all closed.
I am a Mom of 3 small kiddos and my husband is gone working well a lot! What I am trying to say is give it all up for 24 hour to prepare for what may
be around the corner or if not ... you will still have a blast with your family!
It is not easy because us Adults - (Har, har, well some) Keep putting it off. Well I finally said enough and switched out well most of our home.
Some of my kids are trying to talk me into not doing this but I already did ... right in the middle of dinner. Some are loving this! Camp out at
home! But I am trying to let them get used to the fact this could happen anytime. We could lose power for a hundred possibilities! Better be ready
Of course Mom has found a cheat but I really wanted to know how my young kids reacted and took all this in. Well I can say 2/3 love it but the 1/3 is
not on the boat. I am hoping by working with him and keeping up this "drill" from time to time he will get used to it.
The funny thing is our family hunts, fishes and camps a lot and everyone is always trying to be number one! ...Whatever I guess! I will be online for
a few more minutes to to be fair to my kids ( they are too young to know but this is my test as well) I have 24 hours nothing coming too and it could
and will be a welcomed break...even though I already mowed my lawn.... I guess I will utilize my cordwood sauna and take one!
What I am tying to get out is get off your butts and shut off the garbage spewing from what ever and live for 24 hours! I know it is going to be hard
for me as well as my kiddos! Hell instead of a Bunn coffee maker i will be outside cursing a stove to heat faster! We will see but we will learn.
Just sayin.. Can you? Have you? What is 24 hours?? Times and updates! Great Weekend prep stuff!
OK dropped my mouse in the endless darkness........ crap..... found it and now awaiting the fearsome trolls.
