On Friday night I had just started to get ready for bed when I heard sirens outside. Half jokingly, I said to hubby "looks like someone got stabbed again." Not 5 seconds later, there is a pounding on my door. I immediately freak out because I'm not completely dressed since I was changing for bed. Hubby runs for the door and I'm right behind him, wrapped in a blanket, thinking that there must be a fire.
Lo and behold there is a fireman standing at the door decked out in full gear. Before I could start screaming fire, he said the neighbors carbon monoxide detector had gone off and he needed to do a reading in my apartment too. The idea of carbon monoxide had me freaking out just as much. Hubby showed him to the kitchen while I ran to the bathroom to get dressed again.
The fireman said our apartment was clear and told the neighbors to buy a new alarm. I was still totally freaked out though. Talk about an exciting Friday night. I learned that in an emergency, my instinct is to panic. I totally felt like a schmuck...like George from Seinfeld when he pushes kids and runs out of an apartment on fire.
Saturday and Sunday were a lot less exciting, thank goodness. I made another daisy square, even though I said I wouldn't, because its a ROAK over at Crochetville.
I promised Cami I would send something for the Relay For Life fundraiser she is helping with. The theme is home items. I thought that lots of people would do kitchen things, so I went with a bathroom theme. More bath puffs!
I wanted to get some knitting in this weekend too, but I didn't get around to it. I want to try a knit hat, but most of the patterns I've seen require circulars and then DPNs for when the hat gets too small. I've got the circulars but not the DPNs, so hopefully I'll be able to find a hat pattern that is worked flat to get the hang of it.
Hope all you peeps had a good weekend!
