Last Wednesday was trivia night at the local bar and I was part of the team to create questions. Since, we had the day off, I spent most of the afternoon drinking beer and writing trivia. Just before four I headed home to bathe and change my clothes. When I got home, the gate was flung wide open and there were two cars parked in the yard with many people milling about. I thought nothing of it at the time, focused on getting ready for my night out. I was later to learn that my host mom was in labor that afternoon. J had run out to the garage to start the car only to not have it turn over. So all the hysteria was about jumping the car so that J could take my host mom to the hospital to deliver a baby girl. I’ll write more when power is restored at my house. Yeah the line got cut Friday and I am now adjusting to no running water or electricity.
