Then on the way home, I got hungry. Not a problem, just needed to eat dinner. It had been a light protein day, and I run on protein. Seriously, not enough and I start eating people to make up the difference. We were driving up the driveway when my husband and I had to stop and turn around due to the tree that the wind had blow over. Right smack on the driveway. No damage to our property, but it creased the neighbors fence. Thank goodness it was also their tree.
This is also no big deal, in fact I'm surprised that this was the first time the driveway had really been blocked. We picked up a chain saw a couple of years ago for just this scenario. So we park the car and start walking up to the house. At which point I had a full-on hypoglycemic event. I managed to avoid falling down but the cold sweat, muscle fatigue, crazy heartbeat and attempt to faint was pretty awesome. Especially when attempting to climb the hill. I kept having to stop and just breathe because I wasn't functioning right. And having to explain what was going on more than once to my husband just about made me bite him. But he finally understood the gravity of the situation and got his butt up to the house to get me some food so I could avoid falling down.
Unfortunately, this set the tone for the rest of the night. Dinner was late because the chicken just didn't want to cook, the power went out for 3 hours, and I had to work until about 11. Which all sucked rocks. However! I got to nap in front of the fireplace while the power was out and when I couldn't stand it anymore, we pulled out the generator and got internet access back. So that definitely works, and is SO EXCITING. If only I didn't still feel a bit off, I'd be rocking the socks off today too.
