6 Year Anniversary of the Ontario/New York Black Out

Yes, yes it is. How do I know this so certainly, you may be asking? Well, my little girl is 6 today. I know exactly where I was the day of the blackout. Do you remember where you were and what you were doing? did the time go. She is going to be starting grade 1 in a few weeks. What the heck is that? I don't know if I am prepared for that yet. But, whether we are prepared for it or not, life tends to move forward.

We finally got Riley's monitor in yesterday. What fun. The thing doesn't particularly like to hold a signal too long, but it was like that in the hospital too. Once the baby moves, even the slightest, you tend to lose the signal. But, he has been doing great on it. High (and I mean 97-99) saturation. So, 4 p.m. today, we will get to remove the horrible prongs and tape and tubing from his little wee face...that will be so nice.

Wish us luck.

Good luck! It'll be so nice to see pics of him without the prongs. His handsome little face and all. :)

And I TOTALLY remember where I was and what I was doing during the blackout. Andrew and I had just met and fallen into DEEP infatuation with each other, but lived in different cities. Having our internet suddenly cut off was torture, since we chatted on MSN all the time. I was working ina call centre and hated it, too. :)
