We Interrupt this Blog to Bring You an Important Public Service Announcement!
Ok, So, last Monday night (a week ago) I am getting ready for bed and I turn on the dishwasher and go upstairs (like I do every night). I am fiddling around on the computer when I hear these weird noises downstairs so I check them out.
I walk downstairs and enter the kitchen and there is SMOKE coming out of the dishwasher!!! You know, that stinky, black electrical fire kind of smoke! I run over and open the door of the dishwasher which turns off the cycle then I run back to the stairs and start yelling for Scott to come downstairs NOW! We both enter the kitchen and there are now FLAMES coming out of the dishwasher!!
FLAMES IN THE KITCHEN IS A HOLY CRAP MOMENT in my book!!!
We get everything under control and are in clean up mode when my mind starts working.... What if we had gone to bed??? How long would it have burned before the smoke alarm alerted us???
When I think of the things that could have happened and what did.. It just scares me so!!
So there's my story about the flaming dishwasher of doom, and here comes the public service announcement part... Please, NEVER LEAVE YOUR HOUSE WITH THE DISHWASHER, THE DRYER OR THE CLOTHES WASHER ON!! When I think of what could have happened - it's just too scary!!!
Anyway, the sun is shining and it is a beautiful day today and I am washing dishes by hand - like they did in the "olden days".
Have a great day and please be careful!!!!
Oh, here is the quilt I made for my Mom (it's my ON THE RUN pattern and we added one row to the bottom), we worked on it together when she was out here for Thanksgiving and I think it turned out great! She loves it too!!
