I set the house on fire
Yep that is right. Last night I set the house on fire.
It was really starting to chilly in the house, so I decided to start a fire and break the chill.
I went to Sams and got some wood, and I stacked it very nicely in the fire place, got some news paper and started a fire.
Then smoke started to come in the house. Holy crap I forgot to open the vent. So I opened the vent and even more smoke came into the house!
I had all the smoke detectors going off. The dogs were going nuts and all the cats ran for the garage. Nikki and I are trying like crazy to fan the smoke detectors but nothing worked.
Berry walked in and grabbed a bucket of water and opened the doors on the fire place. That is when flames shot up the wall.
Oh dear Lord I set the house the house on fire and now it is filled with smoke. There was no real damage and everyone is safe. When Rusty got home he was kinda wondering what had happened, but was scared to ask. So I said "Baby I set the house on fire tonight. How was your day?" Rusty just looked around and said nothing.
Rusty has gotten very wise over the years and has learned to not say anything.
Today I get the great pleasure of washing everything that can fit into a washer. Everything smells like smoke and it just stinks. I have started cleaning the carpets, but I only have one room done.
I will have to stop cleaning at some point and go vote, but other then that I will be desmoking my house today.
Note to self: call a chimney sweep!
