Trapped Like the Donner Party but, At Least We Have Food

As I shut the garage door this morning, after dropping the kids off at school, the spring on our automatic garage door broke, essentially trapping my car inside. Hugh had not left for work yet so, his truck was trapped as well. Apparently, we aren’t going anywhere until the garage door repairman can get here to save us.

Trapped in the house all alone, together. Whatever shall we do? Wink, wink, nudge, nudge.

Oh, Hugh just reminded me that we actually live three blocks from the hardware store and that I can walk to work, it is a beautiful morning, after all.

I would kill him now but I’m too lazy to clean up the blood.

Which reminds me of a conversation I had with my mother-in-law last week.....

Emily: Chelle, do you have some extra room in your freezer?

Chelle: Why? Do you need to hide a body?


Emily: No, I just wanted to put a turkey in there; they go on sale today and I don’t have any room in my freezer, why would I want to hide a body?

Sometimes, I just don’t think she gets me.


  1. Love the conversation with your M-I-L!

  2. Does anyone's mother-in-law get them?? I would love to find one who does...

  3. MIL's seriously!!! Geesh.. Terrible problem to the "trapped" in the house with "nothing" to do with poor hubby!!! ;)
