Hello out there in Tumblr land.
Yesterday, my grandparents’ house, where my sister and her husband lived, burned. They are both okay, and the dog and the cat, too. However, the house is probably not salvageable. My dad had to watch his childhood home go up in flames. He’d just finished renovating the bathroom so that it was useable for R and K. Looks like that was an exercise in futility.
We are very grateful that all we lost were things; however, the things we lost were important to us. It will take some time to get back on track. I talked to my dad last night, and he sounds pretty awful. He’s very relieved that he installed a new smoke detector recently.
So. That brings me to my public service announcement: Check your smoke detectors! If they don’t work, buy new ones!!! Put new batteries in them. Take the five minutes to check them. You never know when it could save your life. Seriously. R said that they wouldn’t have woken up if they hadn’t had the smoke detector.
