Well, that's one way for your hubby to get out of dinner duty in the future. Kidding!
My goodness - what a day, indeed. And what a blessing you all are alright.
Glad you all are okay.

That sounds like a traumatizing day's worth of events. The good news is that everything is okay and that's what matters. It's things like this that make us more mindful of what's going on around us. Some times we do just do things so automatically that we don't even think about our actions. Hopefully your hubby will think twice about cooking dinner again. Of course, if he really wants to cook, maybe you could encourage him to take a few cooking lessons. For fun, of course.


Glad your daughter and the house are safe !!

Jessica, what you described wasn't just stressful - it was downright traumatic! I'm so sorry you had what sounds like a really wretched, horrifying, scary day. So glad your daughter was unhurt and that the fire was doused quickly. Given the terrible fire you were in before, it's no wonder that brought a deep sense of terror back to you...

At such miserable times, it's almost our "default position" to head to the fridge for relief. I can really relate; I had many "whirlwind tours" of our little (but always well-stocked, sometimes too much so!) galley kitchen. We look to the calorie for instant comfort after being shaken to the core.

Gradually, you may find you're developing the habit of reaching for high-volume, lower-calorie foods at such times, like fresh veggies and/or lots of non-caloric liquids. Don't deprive yourself of some other forms of real physical comfort, either, though, like a nice, hot bath or a good nap in a darkened room...or just a few minutes' breathing time with some needlework and the TV (or Netflix or YouTube). It'll get easier.

Meanwhile... emoticon

that definitely sounds like a lot of stuff all at once today!
My fiance is a little absent minded too, we don't have kids though.
I'm glad you are all safe! Tomorrow's a new day!

Today was very crazy. I don't know a better word to describe it with. Started off heading out fr a local Easter egg hunt for my nearly three yr old daughter, my husband straps her in her car seat pulls out of drive and turns onto the street. I hear this crash and look back my daughters car seat was not buckled to the seat( husband forget reattach it after cleaning out his car) she was not hurt, but just really scared, she landed face down on the floor of he car( he drives a Honda element and there is space next to her seat, there is not seat next o hers. The noise hat came of my throat was horrible...finally her , I and him calm down.... Then dinner time approaches and he wants to cook dinner(which happens maybe once a year) I said go of thing I know I look over and there was a fire on our stove....some he caught the pan and oil on fire(no food in pan) still not sure how this happened...since I was caught in a fire 7 years ago and lost everything and nearly my life...I am terrified of fire I grabbed my daughter ran from our condo was first instinct ...he got under control but still I feel so wired right now....

LOVE my husband but sometimes his absent mindess drives me so bottom line at dinner time I ate out f stress...feel so stuff..ehhh oh well tomorrow is a new day ...
