April 14, 2010

We are having a major breakthrough at our house… Bella is almost totally potty trained! We’ve gone days without any accidents, and she is sleeping through her 2 hour nap without having any accidents either! Woo-Hoo!!

Last night was a nice relaxing one at our house, well not really relaxing at first, but it ended that way! When Bella & I got home, I turned the oven on to cook some tilapia. Within minutes, my oven was smoking and my smoke alarms were going off. Apparently, my oven is quite dirty and let me know about it yesterday! I was running around opening the doors and windows to disarm the smoke alarm, when my huge set of 2” blinds in my dining room decided to fall off and land right on top of my head! Ouch that hurt!! It was just me and Bella, so I made sure not to show any pain, because it scares her. I just calmly went to my phone and called Eric and told him we were eating out tonight. We ended up grabbing something through the drive through and then coming home and turning on the self cleaning feature on my stove. Whew it smelt bad and heated up my whole house! Bella kept telling me the house was smelly!

This morning I went to check on my stove (it finished last night before bed, but was still hot, so I let it cool down overnight) I seriously can’t open my stove’s door! I even had Eric try and he couldn’t either. After both trying for a few minutes, we decided to leave it and try tonight. I am praying we won’t have to get someone to come out to fix it!

Friday night, I am getting a much needed night off and going to Vivo’s with the girls! It’s a Mexican restaurant downtown that I’ve heard great things about, & they just opened one near Lakeline, so we all decided to go. I am super excited to get out and catch up with my girls. They are always so much fun! That’s all the plans we have for the weekend, but I am sure more will pop up as we go. Have a great rest of the week!


  1. When we had our oven do a "self clean"... it definitely made the house stink. I remember the oven locking itself while it was cleaning and for a little while afterwards... and I couldn't open it up. Tim did something to open it up... I'll ask him and let you know.

  2. Thank you! Eric tried forever last night and couldn't get it to close back up. Hopefully Tim might have a trick. Thanks again!


I love comments & questions so please leave yours and I'll try to respond quickly!
