By the time we woke up Friday morning the power was back on and I was happy to find that none of our food got ruined. Just as I was getting ready for work I got a text from my boss that the district had shut down. A free paid day off? My weekend had begun!!! I'd say the power outage worked out pretty well for me. For a minute I felt like I didn't know what to do with myself. I was already up so I went to the gym. Later on that night Mj and I met some of his co workers for drinks. Saturday I got some errands done and hung out with a friend of mine while Mj was out biking. Then we went to a early dinner and did more errands. I found a great vase for the living room. Sunday we both stayed home all day which was really nice. I had a great surprise 3 day weekend.
Thanks to everyone who commented on this post. Clearly I'm not alone! It helped me gain some perspective on the age old pesky hot button topic of neat vs messy and relationships. It was very helpful for me to blog about it. I'll continue to work on patience and trying not to let any of it be a bigger deal then it needs to be. And by the way my little refrigerator labeling joke actually worked. Mj did complain about having to open 3 drawers just to make a sandwich but he actually put everything back where he got it from. We're having sandwiches again tonight for dinner so we'll see what happens. I'm hoping it sticks!
