Oh My Goodness!  
First off, I'd like to wish everyone a very Happy Earth Day! *loves planet Earth*

So, the other night I was making a glass of iced tea for my Mom and something quite bizarre happened. I went to put the jar back into the lazy susan (which is right next to the oven) and it slipped out of my hand. When it hit the floor I heard a loud noise resembling glass breaking. My first thought was, "great, I broke the jar of iced tea mix", but nothing happened to that. Instead I looked down and saw tiny pieces of glass and black plastic all over the floor. What had happened was the whole front door of the oven had shattered! Needless to say, I was a complete wreck, because I didn't remember the jar ever hitting the oven, just the floor. The only explanation we could come up with, was that there must have been a small fracture in the glass already and the vibration from the jar falling onto the floor must have been enough to cause the whole thing to break! Crazy, huh? I'm still in shock over what took place and feel terrible (of course I'm blaming myself). D: So now we have to replace the door and it's going to cost a couple hundred dollars or so. *facepalm*

I'm so bummed that a new episode of LOST isn't airing tonight! How many of those dumb re-cap shows do they have to have? ><

In other exciting news, the high temperature today was 46 degrees- by saturday it's supposed to be 77 degrees! o.O I can't believe the difference, it's so substantial and will, of course, reek havoc with my sinuses (good times).

I know. Thanks for your concern, you're so sweet! *hugs*

I was so bummed without a new LOST. I only watched like the first recap show and then I got sick of it.

Wow, talk about a total freak accident with regards to your oven door! That's so bizarre :p

It was the freakiest thing that's ever happened to me I think. =)

Awww Kristin. **hugs** Don't worry about it accidents happen to everyone. I kind of had one with my mom's car about a year and a half ago. My grandma was in the hospital back in October 2007 and one morning, I took a break and went to one of our local grocery stores that has a hotbar in the deli to get us some breakfast. So I'm used to driving smaller cars, but my mom's sister bought us another car back in May 2007 that would be easier for my grandma to get in and out of. It's a used grand mercury marquee 1997. So it was definitely a bit bigger car than we were used to. So I go to the store that morning and prepare to pull into a parking space. Now I had been doing real good---until that day. I thought I had plenty of clearance to turn into the parking space and when I went to turn in to it, I basically scratched the person's car on my right with my front fender and it was BIG scratch. Now you wanna talk about being hysterical. I was went balistic. I went into the grocery store and had them page anyone driving that car next to me and to my surprise, it belonged to a real sweet lady I used to go to church with. When I told her what happened, she was completely understanding and was very nice about it. We traded phone numbers and I gave her my insurance information and everything turned out fine. Of course my fender still looks like garbage right now as we haven't been able to do anything about it yet. But my mom was understanding too. :)

So don't be so hard on yourself. And enjoy the cool weather while you have it. :D

Aww, thanks for sharing your story with me. I do feel a little better now. *hugs* I am definitely enjoying the cooler weather while I can! ^^

Wow that's frightening! It doesn't sound like it was really you're fault.

They always have recaps, I don't really get why. I guess maybe because the 100th episode is next week?

Ugh yes! This weather kills the sinuses.

Thanks, I need to know that!

I'm so tired of the recap shows, it's a waste of time! I can't wait until next week for a new episode. :D

Save the Earth, it´s the only planet with chocolate! *waves flag*

The thing about the oven door was just... weird. I´ve never heard that you can drop a jar on the floor and break a door. It can´t have been your fault. Don´t feel too bad. :o)
Kristin: Davy #2kristypadalecki on April 23rd, 2009 03:50 pm (UTC)
I know, what are the odds? With me, quite high I guess. :/ I still don't understand what could of happened.
Maia the Owlsie: DC - easymiss_nightowl on April 23rd, 2009 07:24 pm (UTC)
Does that mean you´re accident proned by nature? I know some people just are.
If so, let me give you a small tip, because sometimes you just CAN learn from other people´s mistakes:

Should you ever be ironing and wonder if the iron is hot enough, NEVER EVER put the iron on your nose to test it.

Yeah... on a scale of 1 to 10, guess how stupid that was?
(and also, guess how much I laughed when a friend fessed up to that? Great entertainment value, of course).
Kristin: Davykristypadalecki on April 23rd, 2009 09:09 pm (UTC)
Not exactly, bad things just seem to happen to me. D:

Lol, thanks for the tip! =)
Erin: Tulip; Openbjtp on April 23rd, 2009 10:26 am (UTC)
Hehe! Dude. That Oven breaking thing sounds freakish! Thank God everyone was ok though.

I can't wait for more Lost. It truly bends my mind!
Kristin: Stock- Flowerskristypadalecki on April 23rd, 2009 03:51 pm (UTC)
Yeah, it was rather freakish. Thanks for your concern, I appreciate it!

I know, next wednesday can't come soon enough. =)

That is crazy about the oven! Glad you didn't get hurt!

Kristin: Heath Ledger #3kristypadalecki on April 23rd, 2009 03:52 pm (UTC)
It was! I'm so glad no one was hurt either, it could have been a real disaster. o.O
