After a few consecutive afternoons of not getting actually much rest, I was desperately craving our bed yeahterday night. I was only halfway through the work week, and I needed a wonderful night of sleep in order to recharge to make it through the rest of the week! Nothing was going to stop myself and others from getting into bed early. There regularly seems to be something or another that occupies our attention to where I do not get enough rest, however this time, I really went to bed with enough time to spare to sleep well. I could hardly know it as I closed our eyeah. Tomorrow would be better after all! A mere more than one hours later, I could not know our rotten luck! My power was split off! I knew instantly, because our fan that is regularly on our afternoonstand turned off, and I cannot sleep without the noise from our fan. I also could not sleep without the a/c! I laid there in bed, willing the power to come back on as rapidly as possible, five minutes turned into ten minutes and ten minutes turned into thirty minutes. I wanted to cry. By that time it was already hot and stuffy in our room. For multiple hours, I was without power that night. There wasn't even a thunderstorm outside that could have caused a lightning strike to knock out power. Finally, after multiple hours, our power kicked back on. However, by then, it was 3:00 a.m., and I only had multiple more hours before I needed to get up for work! Three hours had been stolen from me!
