11-3-2010

Earlier today the girls were in my room watching an old home video and Camden was in and out of there a few times. At one point someone (and I'm pretty sure it was Camden) bumped the ironing board and knocked the iron off but didn't bother to pick it up. To turn on the iron, you tip it forward (and then set it back in it's standing position...for obvious reasons.) Well when it got knocked off, it was triggered ON and was left sitting on the floor w/the hot side down. I really don't know how long it was like that before I walked in there, noticed it and picked it up, but it was long enough to burn a whole into the carpet, and leave a very stinky smell! I don't even want to think of how quickly a fire could have started and how crazy that would have been!

So, needless to say, today what I am grateful for is that our house is still standing!!

In our first house, one of the kids took the water heater out of the fish tank and it ended up on the floor. We had left and after a few hours had returned to smell soemthing funny. After a little while we figured out what it was and found it had burned a hole into the carpet. Somehow I imagine that some carpet is semi fire proof. Thank Goodness nothing happened in either case. House fires are one of my biggest fears!!

Thank goodness! Isn't that just like a kid to knock something (big) over and just leave it?

So glad you're back to your blog! I've missed it!

Other touches include a simple date readout at replica watches uk circular cyclops, sapphire crystal with replica watches, and a cool handset with a segmented pattern for the minutes hand. My favorite aspect of this swiss replica watches is the way it all complements the glossy aluminum bezel and its thick coinedge pattern. Now, whether the in house movement paired with silicone tech in a vintage inspired diver is worth the price rolex replica uk is totally up to the buyer but this watch is going to have some pretty stiff competition. When this hits the grey market it will be a competative purchase. I love the overall rado replica uk of it, stunning, it grabbed me straight away and I fell in love with it. It even the first cyclops replica watches that I am considering putting on the dream list. Diver replica watches uk and test the quality and practicality of the newer independent watch company.
