Day 46

Aidan's teachers are Rutgers fans and apparently they have a big game today. As such, two of his teachers asked the kids to wear red today to show support haha. Aidan being Aidan, he forgot today. Luckily I knew since they had emailed everyone so he quickly changed clothes.

Day 41

Aidan had a great dentist appointment yesterday. I recently took away his electric toothbrush because it was making him a lazy brusher. His teeth looked cleaner to me using a manual brush and I was right. His last several exams were terrible, last night was so minor and it was just to make sure he was brushing all the way up to his gums which is common for kids.

Day 39

It has been great great for Aidan and all the other kids to finally have life back to a normal pace. Two weeks of having no power or running water when it's 40 degrees outside is just terrible. But it is past now, thank goodness.

Day 35

We just got power back yesterday which was good because school is starting back today. Aidan is excited to finally get back to school though he is disappointed that all before and after school activities are cancelled for this week at least. A lot of roads are still not passable in town so they sent out info about moving bus stops and asking people to be there early just in case.

Still no power

We still are without power and school is still closed. As of yesterday our town was still 93% out of power. I don't know how much was restored today. I finally got a hotel room for tonight. Aidan is so used to the cold that he is burning up in the warmth of the room. The gas lines are crazy as everyone is panicking. I got lucky today and found a place that I only had to wait 15 minutes on line. If I hadn't gotten gas today I would have had to drive to Pennsylvania tomorrow. They instituted a temporary rule that determines when you can get gas. If the last number in your license plate is an even number you can only get gas on even numbered days. I'm an even, tomorrow is my day off so I cannot get gas in New Jersey tomorrow.
Anyway, we are surviving. Aidan was able to keep himself entertained. I just hope this doesn't last much longer and we can return to our lives.
