Burnin' Down the House



All right, I had to pop in and share our moving stories from yesterday. We still haven't packed up the computer yet, so that should tell you something about how our day went. Started out all gung ho yesterday morning. My brother decided he couldn't come after all to help (won't go there). Our friends Robert and Cyndie came over to help and we did get a lot done, but we still had so much more. After they left, Mike was trying to move the freezer and ran over his toe. It's now two or three sizes bigger and he'll probably lose the nail--ouch!

Not 15 minutes later, I was working in the kitchen and I set the big bag of baking soda down on the stove top just right. Somehow it was enough to light the burner. Unfortunately, there was a bunch of stuff sitting on the stove and POOF--up in flames. I yelled for Austin to get Mike and he grabbed the fire extinguisher and put it out. It was plastic, so it smelled horrible and now I still have to clean up ash and fire extinguisher debris. Fun and games. Hoping for a better day today. Yes, I do have pics, but no time to load them on here.

Moving is always the pits. Even when you try to plan for everything. I'm glad that you didn't "burn down the house." We moved two months ago and I still can't find everything. UGH!!
