The house is on fire! The house is on fire!


(we are pretending here... work with me...)

The family has already collected at the lamppost across the street from our house (our pre-determined meeting spot). Our two cats have strolled out as well.  They knew the emergency escape plan, too.

The loved ones are safe and sound.

I look down and realized I grabbed three items on my way out the door...
  • Shakey doggie, my son's lovie
  • A small stuffed giraffe, my daughter's lovie AND
  • My kids's blankies
 ...what a loving mother

 No I didn't. I look down again. I really grabbed...

  • My blackberry phone
  • My Nook AND
  • My laptop
...what a geek. She can't live without her technology.

No I didn't. I look down again. I really grabbed...

  • Every picture in my house
  • Every photo album
  • My camera
 ...how sentimental. I must have my memories!

No I didn't. Who am I kidding? I can't carry all that crap. I really, really grabbed...

  • My shoes
  • A sweater
  • Some snacks
...how, um, practical. And, uh, likely. After all...it's going to be a while until we go back home again, so I need the shoes. I'm always cold, so I need the sweater. And the kids will be hungry soon... hence the snacks.

This post was prompted by Work, Wife, Mom, Life's Working Mom Wednesday prompt:
