Sometimes mommies have to be brave.

Truth: I watched too many crime shows when I was younger. Once I moved out on my own, I quickly realized that they freaked me out too much so I stopped watching them.  But I had already seen enough.  Now, I hate being home alone at night – and my husband started his month long temp job yesterday … working overnights.

Add in a 3 month old baby and a middle of the night thunderstorm.

Thankfully, Xander slept through the whole thing and we never lost power (unlike most of the town).  I’m actually not sure what I would have done if the power had gone out – there definitely would have been tears and quite possibly a call to my mom begging her to come over and play boggle by candlelight.

I’m happy to report that with all the downstairs windows closed and the deadbolt in use, we survived our first night. I even managed to sleep for a few hours, once the storm died down.

I wonder what I could watch to counteract all the crime shows.  Maybe this…
