this morning, i was rudely jarred from sleep at 5 a.m. thanks to the all-building fire alarm episode, i trudged outside in my pajamas topped with a coat and hat. which is when i was told a pipe burst near the front door. it was spilling water like a waterfall. water that smelled like gas. because, the fire department said, it had been in the pipe since the building was built. this seemed odd to me. but whatever.
it was cold and kolby was shaking so he, b and i sat in my car. from approximately 5:30 a.m. to 6:30 a.m. when we were told we could go back inside. they did not learn how to turn the alarm off, however, until 6:50 a.m.
i am SO tired today.
