WIP Progress HALT

You know, I knew my writing time would be very limited because of the kids getting out half days, but I had the intent to do some writing last night after I put the kids to bed and spent a little QT with my husband. I figured I'd write from at least 10 until 11. Didn't happen. Why? Because at 9:30, our electricity went out. Neighbors across the street had lights blazing, but my whole side of the street was without power. And it wasn't just a FLICKERING. Oh no, that would be entirely too easy. No, we were without power until almost midnight. I know this because we went on to bed around 10:30, and we thought we had turned off everything before we retired. However, my 3 yr old sleeps with her radio on....when I put her down, I normally have it at a normal volume, then when we go to bed, I turn it way down. Around midnight, my room fills with music! Ah, the power's on and the monitor beside my bed blared with her music. I managed to stumble to her room, turn down the radio, and crawl back into bed. I guess I COULD have gotten up, come downstairs, reboot my entire system and wrote a little, but by then, my heart wasn't in it and my mind was set on sleep. So, today I hope to get SOME writing done, before I have to go pick up the 5 yr old from her half-day out! UGH
