On Tuesday of this week Julie and had plans to go out for a nice dinner. When I got home from work it was time to the make lunches for the next day, have a shower and feed the cat. To have all this done before Julie got home meant we could just head out for dinner once she got in. It was a nice dinner and we took our time relaxing and talking. It was shaping up to be a great evening until we came home and our neighbour called out to us..."I think I hear smoke alarms going off in your place" As we got to the front door I could hear them and then it HIT ME...one of the steps to making our lunches was to boil some eggs!!! I forgot 6 eggs that were on the stove cooking on hi. The house was full of smoke, no fire, cat was hiding under the bed and all six eggs exploded and were EVERYWHERE!!!
I will say Julie was very understanding but I was very very upset with myself!! So no radio at all for the next week or so as I have to do some major cleaning! Our insurance has a deductible of 1,000 and I figure I can get things back to normal for 1/8 that cost. Lesson learned I am now looking for an automatic egg steamer that cooks the eggs and then turns off on it's one if I happen to have another senior moment.
