well…what a couple of crazy days!  we had 6″ of snow on saturday and lost power till today (tuesday)!  i will never take running water for granted again!  we did have fun, though…played board games, made smores on the wood stove and just sat around and laughed!  so there was some good that came out of the bad and we found out how wonderful our friends are!  i have to give the hensel’s a HUGE thanks for inviting us on sunday for the steelers game (they won of course!), pizza and showers!  and thanks to ellen for letting me use her shower this morning before work!  so i thought it would be appropriate to post a thank-you card…
