    Now that we’re empty nesters…to be honest it was kind of fun. But more than a few days with kids is tough! Good for you for having a great attitude- I wish you all well!

    Thanks @88de423f0af582be5edb2a43fd8636e4:disqus! I have to admit – I am looking forward to school being back in tomorrow. I need to get work done!!

    I am also without power…and heat…and cold food for 7 days! We packed up our 2 kids and headed to my aunt’s who had power.
    Before we lost power, I printed (not enough!) coloring pages from Disney Junior and let the kids just hang out in pj’s all day. It was fun for the first…day or two :)

    Bless you for having such a great can-do attitude toward this trying situation. I sure hope you will get your power back on soon, and glad you at least have a couple of places to go to get warm and such.

    It looks like you have found wonderful ways to cope. I have never had to make it seven day without power.

    @392fa5cf5ca7a50287c8a625a0d26d52:disqus – hope you got power back. Ours came on at 6pm last night. That first hot shower was pure heaven.

    @b262adaeaa046a5f261775c3bf47fa83:disqus – It can be trying, for sure, I won’t lie. But honestly, compared to the problems of most of the world and those in Staten Island or Jersey or Brooklyn or Queens who lost everything – we had every reason to feel lucky. That is what kept us sane – and the confidence that it would all return to normal at some point in the near future.

    Thanks so much @facebook-649349322:disqus! The lights came back on last night (hallelujah!!).

    The only thing I can say after reading your article is “Respect”. I would be totally paniced, if i were in your place and I would nag 48 hours per day. You are really a very strong person.

    Really great ideas! I know it must have been difficult, but I have to say that I like some of your ideas a non-tech day, which we could all use a break from on occasion. Hope things are getting back to normal for you and your family!
