Just when I decide to turn in early to get some sleep, I was awoken by hubby’s mom waking us up, hubby jumping out of bed, to learn that there was a fire next door in the neighboring townhouse!! We were about to make a mad dash out the door, but realized that we should check first to see if we needed to evacuate. At first, they said yes, but then they said we could come back in (after we’d already gone to the car) since the smoke was contained.
But the irony is that I am normally awake!! I always stay up late on the weekends, to usually 2 a.m. or so! But the night that I decide to turn in early, there’s a fire. And heaven forbid we would have had to evacuate, I wasn’t even awake to know what was going on.
Guess the lesson learned is that there is some definite benefit to being a nocturnal soul……….
And even better, glad we had not been at the new house working late into the early hours. Otherwise, mother-in-law would have been here, alone, with 2 small kids, trying to figure out how best to evacuate, etc.
Whew, glad everything is okay. I guess it’s okay to go to bed now………………….
(I should have been awake…..)
