Best laid plans

It has been another struggle this week. Energy levels low all the time no matter what I do. I thought to myself “at least it will be a nice weekend” before the storm kicked in last night. I love the sound of a storm. It feels strangely soothing much to my wifes disgust (she hides her head under a blanket) but it is not how I saw the weekend going.
