last night wasn’t the worst night of my life…but it certainly made the top 10. …and today…is another day.
half of the house is gutted by fire. my stuff is okay, rommates in that half of the house lost almost everything. people are ok. dogs are ok. the beautiful cat Freya, passed at the er vet, she got scared and ran deeper into the smoke. holding her in my arms as she faded was a tough thing.
not sure how it started, old house, electrical maybe? started in a back apt both of those roommates were out of town. what followed, working with my rommate vicki, trying to fight the fire, realizing that was out, save pets, call 911, grab my hard drive and abandon ship…that was probably the most insane 30 minutes of my life. Everyone from our neighbor Amy, our landlord, and the MPLS fire dept were AMAZING!!!! truly amazing. i am very lucky to have them, they made a really terrible night a little bit easier to handle. i would appreciate it, if you are friends with me, or any of my roommates….don’t blow up our phones today with texts. i made this post to let you a know that we are all okay…and i we need help, we will ask. we love you all, but we don’t want to tell this story a hundred times, and i think we all just need a stiff drink and a long hot shower.
