Fire.....well almost



UNPLUG THE TREE...UNPLUG THE TREE!!!!!!!

I hear my husband screaming......

Holy shit the tree is smoking and I'm standing there like a fuckin' idiot not moving. I was paralyzed. I couldn't believe that this was happening.

Of course my 6 year old was standing right there to witness us yelling and swearing. So he chimes in with his cries of terror......or should I say cries of "I thought we were gonna decorate the tree tonight"

He could care less as long as we buy a new tree, and get to decorating, and then have a place for all the presents to go. That's fine I will make sure to take the $300 it's gonna cost me to replace the tree out of his "presents" fund......hahahaha

I mean all funny aside, this was scary as shit!!!!.....I'm glad it happened when we were putting up the tree. I never leave the tree on when we aren't at home, but what if we were all upstairs having dinner or something. This could have ended up a lot worse.

Now I have to go put up the lights outside......

Wish me luck!!!

  3. So glad it ended up ok hon. I think we've decided not to put up outside lights this year. We'll likely get the tree up on Sunday (hopefully minus the fire). Good call on never running the lights when you're not home.
