Today, I just wanted to share something I thought was silly.
Yesterday, Hubby and I met MIL for lunch at CiCi's, in case you don't know about it, it is a pizza buffet. And MIL LOVES it. She and Hubby can eat a LONG time at a buffet. I spend most of the time chatting and listening as I will never be able to eat as much as either of them do. And they don't gaine weight! Ugh!
So the topic came up about a huge fire that happened on Friday. You may have heard about it as it did make some national news outlets. A restaurant caught fire and the fire moved on to a motel and it ended up being a 5 alarm fire.
It got huge and I was getting email news alerts all afternoon.
Sadly, 4 firefighters were killed and 13 injured during the fire. It was one of the worst fires in Houston history.
The subject came up and MIL said, "Oh, there was smoke all over the Southwest Freeway. I hope Meredith did not have a hard time getting home."
WHAT?! Four firefighters DIED. 13 were injured. The building burned to the ground. Apparently, a lot of people LIVED there and they are now homeless.
And you are worried that Meredith might have been inconvenienced?????
Needless to say, I did not say that to her, but I sure was thinking it. Don't get me wrong, I love my kids. But their convenience is not always the most important thing.
Now, back to work for me. :-)
