Tonight it was my turn to pick up something for dinner. Chris had come in with 2 fantastic meals and I could not even think of what to buy. I stopped at Whole Foods, thinking surely I would find something. Nothing jumped out at me. I ended up buying some Roast Turkey Breast and a pound of Quinoa and Chickpea Salad.
As I approached our street I noticed that a house had lights on. I figured they had a generator. Then I turned down our street and I saw our porch light on! Then I saw a light go on in the living room. I was in tears by the time I got out of the car. I was so happy. Lights and running water!
After having a celebratory cocktail in our brightly lite living room the dinner I picked up was not that bad after all.
