iPhoning this in...
We were minding our own business on Saturday morning--making bacon for Pickle--when I got a call from our security company saying that an alarm was sounding at or vacation house. They summoned the police department to check out the situation, bit things turned onto something of a comedy of errors and we ended up throwing a makeshift suitcase, the kids and the dogs I to the car and hightailing it up here--about a two hour drive.
The good news is that everything I'd okay--we think the wind was so violent that it shook one of the doors so much it set the alarm off. So we have an unexpected getaway!!
The other good news is that I got to cancel my scheduled dental appointment and I stead we're out having dinner and I'm enjoying a strawberry margarita! Wheeeeeee!
