Double Suicide


I'm grateful tonight that my husband is smart. Here's why. We were sitting is his new car in the garage trying to figure out how to sinc his phone with some hands free bluetooth thing and it was a long, confusing process and we were reading the manuals and trying all different ways to hook it up and Jeff stops and says, "Um we better stop this or open the garage. We're committing suicide." HELLO!!! We had been sitting in the garage with the garage door closed for 45 minutes with the engine blazing. Wouldn't that have been the worst story ever if our kids would have come out in the morning and found us dead in the car with the manuals on our chest and one big confused look on our faces?!
So tonight I am grateful that we are alive. (and that we figured out how to sinc his phone to the car.)

hee hee. i mean...that would have been tragic for sure. thank you for being so smart jeff.

p.s. i was laughing at the thought of you guys dead with confused looks on your faces. i don't know why that's funny but i really don't wish you dead. just thought i should clarify. you know how it gets on the family website when you don't clarify.

what!!?? You weren't supposed to be IN the car WITH jeff. Melanie, none of my plans will work if you don't take copious notes.

I'm glad you're alive. One time I pulled into my garage, left the garage door open and ran in the house to get my purse. I ran back out and someone yelled at me for trying to kill my kids. YELL YELL YELL. One minute with the garage door OPEN.

HA HA HA! Shelby I love you.


Ya, I called poison control when I got in and she was actually quite amazed we had been in there so long . . .and were able to make the phone call . . . and we're breathing and all that.

What a comedy/tragedy all rolled into one. I have to say I would probably be laughing a little bit under my breath at your funeral. I know you would be appreciative of my giggling though. Thank goodness Jeff still had some brain cells left to get you guys out of there.

I hope everyone giggles through my funeral. That will make me happy and less likely to haunt them.
