Just to be very clear about this

1993--C babysits by herself for the first time, the microwave explodes.

1997--C is left home alone over the weekend for the first time, gets in her one and only car accident.

1998--C is left home alone over the weekend for the second time, the car survives but she is evacuated by a SWAT team because the crazy neighbors started threatening one another with guns.

2005--C is left home (albeit only for the day--I debate lumping this story in with the others because Juan was just at the library studying) and the building across the street from the condo catches fire and burns almost to the ground.

2008--C is left home alone with Luke over two consecutive weekends and manages to not only have her car battery unexpectedly die in a Wal-Mart parking lot, BUT, almost loses three years worth of pictures, music, lessons, and OH YEAH THAT NANO THING when the baby dumps an entire cup of coffee all over her laptop.

Needless to say, I don't have a good track record when it comes to staying home by myself. Thankfully (for today, at least) the laptop started working again when it had been dried out and cleaned up a bit, and all the data I needed on it has now been backed up several different places just in case it's waiting until the next time I'm alone to off itself in a more permanent way.

Oh dear. Maybe you should get a few more pets...In my experience that really makes things simpler. :)

Happy Thanksgiving! Tell your stinky husband, "Hello" and "Megan has given up on sending you emails so this is all you get!"

Oh yes, Gillian has decided that she's marrying Luke because he is "soooo cute." You should keep in mind that on same days she also wants to marry her sister...
