Lights Out!

I’m sitting in total darkness.  For some reason unbeknownst to me, our power has gone out.  And yes, Honeybun, I did pay the bill!

It’s kind of creepy.  It’s really dark except for the computer screen illuminating the living room where I sit.  I really think its sabotage.  I didn’t work out yesterday, because I was really tired.  I guess we’re all just trying to get back into the routine of school and all that.  I went to bed early instead.  So tonight, the little one went to sleep a little early and I’m looking forward to a quiet night and a Wii Active workout. 

So I started the game, and right away it tells me that I cannot complete the 30 day challenge I was working on.  I don’t think it would gripe at me if it knew I was running.  Well, maybe it would since I have missed strength training quite a bit. 

Anyway, I’m half way into the workout, which is pretty intense.  There were lunges and these awful running kick ups and kick backs which are hard enough without the Wii not picking up your movements and telling you to pick up the pace.  I was just starting to work up a sweat when “poof” the lights go.  They flickered, and then they went out.  And my first thought was that there was a crazed masked man outside my door.  But when I looked outside, I could see everyone was without power.  But it’s creepy even without the crazed psycho.  The wind is blowing through the trees and there is just enough light for you to see it.  It’s all just eerie and I swear it’s happening to sabotage my efforts.   Because it’s all about me.

Hopefully it will come on again soon.  But if not, I think I’ll just go to bed before I get freaked out.   For once I wish someone else was home.
