Last Thursday was a little crazy for us. It started out normal. I woke up, got the girls ready for Swimming Lessons and headed out. After swim lessons, we headed over to my mom's house because Grandma and Grandpa Jones were driving through and we wanted to meet up with them when they stopped by. While chatting with them, Heather mentioned to me that the news said there was a fire in Eagle Mountain and asked if it was close to me. I told her I hadn't heard anything about it, so probably not. I was wrong. When we went inside about an hour later, I got on facebook and saw panic ridden posts from all of my neighbors because the fire was indeed very close to my home, and they were talking about evacuating our division because of the smoke and bad air quality. Since I was already at my mom's house I didn't like the idea of taking my allergy crazed and asthmatic self out to a giant smoke cloud especially if I might get out there and be told I couldn't go home at all. I called Ross and had him stop by home after work to grab some clothes and the dog, and we stayed at my mom's house to keep out of danger. The kids loved this.
