We own every toy known to man but we have never bought a generator!
Guess what? There are no generators left in the world! Except for one and it lives near my sister in Niles, Ohio!
And...guess what? We bought it and were prepared to drive 12 hours total to get it on Den's birthday!
Until I got the brilliant idea of a courier and frankly I don't even know how I know that word...but the courier was going to charge us $1,008.00 until I cried...no...not really but almost...anyway they are picking it up...putting it on a truck...and we have to be in Harrisburg tomorrow morning to pick it up or else...at 4 ish in the morning!
So hopefully we can flush toilets and our basement won't flood...once Den figures out what to do with everything...and that is a whole other story...we were at Home Depot and men were telling us a million things to do...get a cord as thick as my wrist and plug in into the dryer outlet...yikes...put a marine battery on our sump pump...and more!
We also bought a saw...the kind that buzzes!
There are fun things to buy at Home Depot if you truly look hard enough...I bought headlights to wear for all three of us but Lucy's will be more of a saddle light...I bought glow in the dark crack open light sticks and at least 500 batteries!
Wish us well!
Say a silent prayer that our generator actually gets here!
And also say a baby prayer that Den will not actually have to use his giant saw!
Happy Birthday, Den!
