This evening we came home to no electricity!!!
An unexpected twist to our family evening activity.
Everyone had a plan outlined,
And each one had to be redesigned.
Instead of the planned movie marathon,
The boys retreated to their room, and with blocks they carried on.
Engel took it as a sign to get some rest,
So, when later podcasting, he would be at his best.
With my thoughts, I thought I would just lay silently,
But there was a steady, timed interruption of ‘mommy, mommy ‘
Since sleep seemed to evade me,
On preparing dinner I focused my energy.
Clearly, this evening was a lesson on flexibility,
Despite plans made, things can turn out quite differently.
