Last night, I tried to cook. If you’ve been following me for any length of time, you may know that cooking is not one of my strong points. Although I am trying to learn and cook healthy meals with fresh ingredients so that I can keep my children healthy. So, I turned on a pot of water to boil. Apparently, I turned on the wrong burner. I came back in about 5 minutes to check on things and noticed that there was a flaming coffee pot on the stove (I have no idea why there was a coffee pot on the stove in the first place). Thankfully, we were able to put it out with a fire extinguisher and get my wife and daughter out of the house without breathing much of the smoke from burning plastic.
We obviously had to get a hotel for the night. I couldn’t risk birth defects or brain damage for my unborn or my young child. I was, though, blown away by the support from everyone. At TeachMeet Nashville, I was astounded by the level of dedication of my PLN. Last night, I was impressed by their caring. At least 10 people wrote to express their concern and a local friend who I met through Twitter actually offered to help us for the night. I can’t forget @cybraryman1 who offered me his catalog of recipe sites.
Thank you to everyone. Living 1000 miles away from family, I truly value all the relationships that have been forged with m PLN.
