We had some excitement at our house yesterday.
While I was attending Melanie's baby shower...our dishwasher caught on fire.
Thank goodness Troy was home...he had the presence of mind to run downstairs and turn off the power to the house, thus containing the fire to the dishwasher itself.
The dishwasher is a lost cause and our house still smells like burnt plastic. But that's it.
It's so scary to think about how much worse it could have been.
One minute you have a house and the next minute you don't.
What if Troy had not been home?
But...it got me thinking...do I know how to turn off the power? or the water for that matter? We have talked about what to do in a fire and how to get everyone out of the house, but what if there is something I could do to save our house...to prevent things from getting worse. Do I know how?
I don't...but today I am going to learn.
Will you take some time and learn too?
