I set fire to the rain!

Love that song :P


Ok, so I didn't set fire to the rain... It was my kitchen...

I guess I will be doing my kitchen a little sooner than expected.

Friday I managed a nice kitchen fire when I tried to turn my tea kettle on and instead turned the burner under the pan of oil on. I'm out one set of cabinets, a stove hood, a set of curtains, blinds, and a faucet, but no one was hurt... except my pride of course.




My Mom said if I wanted my kitchen redone, I didn't need to go to such extremes. To which I replied, had it been intentional, I would have included the living room carpet so I could finally have the hardwood floors I want. We have been planning a remodel for a while now, and although this isn't the best time for it, I now have very little choice. With NaNoWriMo right around the corner I was hoping, and trying, to get my house super clean so I could devote most of my time to writing, but now it looks like I will be painting.




Yay.

It's times like these that you just have to laugh at yourself and move on.

Moving on now...

  1. Well ugh. Glad, of course, no one was hurt or there wasn't more damage, but grrr- that's a little obstacle I'm sure you weren't expecting. We've all done something like that -- the palm-slap to the forehead moments in life. Sigh.

  3. ROFL!!! I love what you wrote in the soot. That is just awesome. So glad you're safe though. And that you still have a roof over your head! I'm pretty sure that would not be the best way to get a new house :P

    1. Ha yeah... I don't think I could have explained how getting a cup of tea turned into charred remains of our life to the Hubz. As it is now he just laughed and called my Mom to share what I did >.<
