The W Family Chronicles

Told you so.

Posted on: May 24, 2007

This is what I’ve said over and over to D in the last 20 hours or so.

A few weeks ago, I noticed the microwave acting funny. I mentioned it and said we needed to think about getting a new one. And we started looking. We looked at over the range models and he kept saying he needed to measure and see if we had enough room. Over and over he said this when we went into a Lowe’s or Sears or anywhere they had them. Did he ever measure? No, he did not.

Yesterday afternoon, I wanted a snack. I had some super yummy (homemade!) stuffed baked potatoes in the freezer. I read the directions for reheating and popped it in the microwave and programmed it accordingly. This is where things went horribly, terribly wrong.

The potato caught on fire. For no reason. No aluminum foil, no metal, nothing that would cause it under normal circumstances. And the microwave caught fire. It was very scary!

Luckily we are all safe…I got the boys out right away and even though I breathed a lot of the smoke, I will most likely survive with nothing but the occasional nightmare. The house smells really bad, but I think it’s getting better…we’ve had the windows open and all of the fans going since yesterday. I got a new microwave last night.

And for the record, NO, we did not have enough room for an over the range model. Wish we’d known that weeks ago.

(Brett, if you read this, I really hope you didn’t want that microwave back…if you did, I’ll buy you a new one! Hopefully one that won’t explode!)

W Family Players

D is the dad, the husband, and the breadwinner. All around nice guy and good at pretty much everything he does. It's disgusting, really. But makes him worth keeping around.

M is the mom, the wife, and the hopeless housekeeper. At least the kids' heads haven't fallen off yet. Beyond that, she sucks at the "stay at home" thing. Oh, and she's the blogger.

J is the big boy. Born October 11 2002, he is in kindergarten and loves it. Now 6 years old, and too smart for his own good. Talks a lot but extremely entertaining.

C is the little boy. Born June 26, 2006, he went through a lot in his first year but is doing just fine now. The only blond in the family, so his paternity is routinely questioned by rude strangers.

V is our baby girl. She is brand new and arrived in January 2009. So far everything is going well. We're thrilled to have added the final piece to our family puzzle. And yes, she WILL be the final piece!
