My day started off rough. I woke at 4:30 in the morning to the sounds of my husband in the bathroom. And from the sounds that I heard, he was worshiping at the porcelain God! Poor guy…
I asked my husband what he thought was causing him to be so sick. And he told me that he had cooked him some frozen chicken wings late last night! He looked at me and said, “Bad chicken. Mess you up!!” If you are a Seinfeld fan, you know those famous lines!
He was back and forth between the bed and the bathroom for hours and around 6:15 my son got up and crawled in bed with us. And as you may guess, having an upset stomach and a jumping boy in bed don’t mix well! So I got up and took Sebastian with me and we started our day much earlier than I would like on a Sunday morning!
Later that day when Sebastian and I were out running errands we heard lots of emergency vehicles. We even had a few pass us along the road. As I was noticing the direction they were headed, I looked up into the sky and saw a huge cloud of dark smoke!

On the evening news, I heard that a fire had started in the mountain area of our town and over 600 acres had already burned! Needless to say, it has been a very unusual Sunday!
That being said, my heart goes out to the people of that area. And I am praying that the fire will be contained soon and no homes will be lost. Please keep these families in your thoughts and prayers…I will keep you updated…
