All evening my lights were flickering and I was trying to ignore it and tell myself it's my imagination, but no, eventually the lights went out, the A/C went off and I heard a bunch of sirens. Have no idea what happened. Luckily it was only about 45 minutes and now things seem to be back to normal, but I was getting angry thinking that this can't be good for the appliances to have these flickering periods, followed by a surge of electricity.
Oh, and for the past three days, I've seen a mouse. On Friday night, I decided to just ignore it -- that if I hadn't been in my kitchen at 10 pm, I wouldn't have seen it, but this guy has made its presence known all weekend.
I am tired and crabby, but at least I can watch Hoarders: Buried Alive, followed by The Newsroom on HBO which I am really enjoying.
