I know I've mentioned before that pregnancy has a strangely calming effect on me. I'm usually a little more relaxed, a little more go with the flow. It is nice for me and I'm sure everyone else around me as I'm normally all worked up about some sort of project or what not in my everyday non pregnant life. However with this pregnancy I do have one crazy (and possibly irrational) fear.
My pregnancy radar is predicting one crazy blizzard this winter. It will come with very icy, non-travelable roads and electrical outages that will last for days. Yes my friends, here in the southern state of Tennessee we will be having a great snow/ice storm while I will be helplessly at home with a newborn and toddler who are both dependent on milk.
I've already been browsing snow boats (yes, I'm seriously crazy as temps are still in the upper 90's here) and I've been pressuring my husband to buy us an ungodly expensive generator to make sure we have heat, an oven, a fridge and of course wi-fi to survive with. I'll be damned if that liquid-gold gets spoiled due to a crazy power outage. We must save the milk people!
I kept thinking that this crazy fear might subside, but no, I feel it is just growing stronger. I'm pretty sure I will refuse to have this baby without a generator in our possession. I will also be hoarding away canned food and other non-perishables like a squirrel collects nuts for winter.
I remember crazily stocking my freezer with numerous frozen meals before Ethan was born, but I'm pretty sure I'm about to take this to a whole different level. Please tell me they make medication for this. My husband is starting to get concerned.
