This is how the story goes...

Ok, so... here is what I think... if they are going to turn the electricity off each day (not accidentally)... they need to give me a schedule! So, just about every day the elecricity is turned off (different sections of the city at different times). It is SO irritating! Here is the story when I'm at home and the electricity goes off... it wakes me up because my fan stops making the noise that I require to be able to sleep. I get up out of bed, find my Ameren bill and call them... waiting on hold for as long as is necessary, only for them to tell me that they are aware of the problem and working on it. So, back to here... there is no number to call, it is extremely hot and for multiple hours at a time... they turn the electricity off ... on purpose (I know I said that originally, but just wanted to make sure you get the idea)!

Ok, here's another thing... today we tried to wash our clothes in the washing machine at our apartment... it took 4 hours! Seriously, not kidding... and that was with us helping it along... I kept turning the knob to try to make it stop! I thought we were never going to get our clothes back! :) Fun times in Kaz!

Keep praying for us... lots going on...

Steph, I'm laughing because I can hear you telling me this story earlier today! And I KNOW, I'm living it too! We did have electricity when we got home, so that was good. It was out for quite a while here today. And it's only going to get worse?? That makes sense, since it's July and all, and it's only hotter than "Who-Ha" as Jenn says! lol

See you tomorrow!!!
Check out my blog, I got the pics of Brad up!!!!
