power out

July 23rd, 2006 at 12:07 am

well...another huge storm came through st louis yesterday(2 in 2 days), and....we have power out for 2 days now.
it got dark as night, the cat ran behind the washer, and i knew we were in trouble.
we aren't the only ones, 1/2 a million plus out here have the power out. thank God the power went out when it is 80 degrees out right now instead of 100+ like the week before.
we are staying at my finace's parents, who live 2 blocks over and have power, and we are grateful for that!
my budget for gas and food is $10/day after bills, which is a little high, but so far i am saving around 2-5$ per day. and putting it into savings....but then insurance comes up, or brakes, or a higher electric bill or something, so it goes back down, but i am not losing faith!!!(getting frustrated, that is why i am here) i know i can save, i am just keeping at it.

the most important thing is that i am saving and paying for my own things and emergencies that come up now instead of running to other people to ask for $.
all for now, power SHOULD be up by tommorrow(wish us luck).
