Did I Really Do That?

My washing machine and my dryer are located in my kitchen, along the far wall in my dining area. As I walked past the pantry closet to do a load of laundry, I got the pocket of my carpenter pants caught on the knob of the bi-fold doors, just like I have a hundred times before. However, this time, it was different.

Instead of me just pulling the doors off the track, I managed to pull the door COMPLETELY off, breaking a section of wood off the bottom that holds it to the frame, and knock out a bunch of the slats....

thereby exposing my messy shelves that need to be organized and straightened up.

When Skippy got home from work, I told him what happened. He came into the kitchen to take a look. As he is standing there shaking his head and LAUGHING, yes, I said LAUGHING at me, he said, "Well, I guess we have some firewood for tonight now!" :> 0

I guess then it was a good thing that we were led to go to The Salvation Army thrift store yesterday. I picked up a pair of curtains for a dollar that I was going to sew together and use for a shower curtain. I guess they will go nicely right there instead! lol

That is too funny! But I bet curtains would look good there.

Sorry - I was chuckling along with Skippy - I'm like that! HAHAHAHA
So now those pants won't cause any problems. :)

So my house isn't the only one where crazy things happen. I am sure the curtains will look great.
