It was almost like God was playing a joke. He was like, "what would be the WORST possible conditions for Rachel & Doug to move in? Freezing cold weather? Oh, sure. But let's add rain and ice, too! Oh, and it would also be funny if they didn't have electricity for 2.5 days AND have a broken phone line (which means there's no Internet) for a few weeks AND, for good measure, I'll make sure their dishwasher is backed up so they can't clean anything too easily." And then He made it happen.
So yeah, that was fun. Phone won't be fixed for a while and dishwasher won't either.
But now we get have some real fun (and nearly free) in Chicago for the next week. Doug is going to a band clinic thingy and I get to tag along. Oprah isn't filming, Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me doesn't have the guests I really want to see on. So...normal fun Chicago stuff.
