Potholder fiasco

WELL.... decided to bake something for xmas for son and relatives, never mind i end up eating TOO many of whatever.... I have pampered chef cookie sheets, they are heavy, BUT nothing hardly ever burns on them or sticks!!! So worth the effort.. And i use my heavy potholders that i make with two layers of jeans fabric (recycled) in between cute material.... so they are nice and heavy for those hot sheets..... the cookies i was making cook for 12 minutes..... was sitting waiting, watching TV and something smelled odd..... WELL, when i opened that darn oven there was one of my potholders!!!! Not quite on the coil on the bottom of the oven, but up next to the door and stuck under one edge of the sheet.... GEEZ, i mean really?? Feel that those potholders are so heavy they did not catch fire immediately, but smoulderd  (sp) for awhile, turned it brown, singed, is the word. Am i lucky or what??? 
Would just like to know what else i am going to forget?  Brian did not think it funny at all, went on and on about how i could have burned the house down, was i not paying attention, what was he going to have to do? was he going to have to worry about me being alone every day?  (poor little dear, sounded a bit worried and concerned, hahahaha)
Take Care All and God Bless
Have a Blessed Christmas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  1. Tell Brian that he needs to be worried, extremely worried, beyond worried because everybody in the whole world does something stupid more often than not. LOL I got such a chuckle out of this post because it is so like me. It's wonderful that our kids worry about us - turn about is fair play since we always worry about ourselves sick about them. But hopefully he can relax and you can all have a very Merry Christmas.

  2. I had a good laugh reading this first thing today! I dropped a whole tray of raw cookies in the hot oven once. What a mess! And, you have to love a son who gets angry because he is worried about his dear old mom getting senile! Merry Christmas.
