Mom gets the night off and Dad tries to burn down the House!

Last Night
After the death of my very best friend, Lori, I have felt so lost in this world and empty, so during Winter Break I found my old phone book and called the parents of my best friend from High School..... WOW she lives in a neighboring town only 15 mins away from me.... We have not seen each other since 1989 and that time was lunch we both left thinking we had nothing in common....

Anyway--she is a mom now (6-yr old Twin Girls) and last night we hooked up to catch up..... Andrew had to HEAT dinner up in the OVEN....

Well, he put things in the Oven and set the timer--he thought--but he actually turned the Microwave ON--NOT knowing that all day long Jeremiah had been putting a big dish towel in it (Who knows why) and the fire alarms went off the house filled with smoke--Andrew called 911 and the Fire Department RIPPED my OVEN and Microwave out of the built-in unit and put out the fire All of this took place within the time I left and the time I got to my Friends house!

BUT--apparently Makala was a very HELPFUL and Good girl during the whole ordeal! Daddy was so surprised how well she was and how much she understood that acting up was not a good idea when things are out of control! She really is a bright child and does know when to do the right thing--too bad we cannot have a crisis everyday so she can get good at this

Daddy says this is what happens when I have him cook....as if this might be the last time....NOT I told him next time he can take the kids to Pizza but that there will be in fact a next time for sure.....It was too nice to have some time off and hopefully have a friend again...

I have been sooooo lost without Lori I miss her even more today then ever.
