Official start to the holidays!
Something always gets broken over the holidays, be it good china, a mixing bowl, someone's glasses, phone, etc. It's an unspoken tradition.
So dear hubby Steve officially started off our holiday by breaking the glass in the coffee table while playing Wii! All I can say is I'm glad it was him who broke it and not me! And, no, he didn't break it with the controller. He was sitting on the edge of the glass plate (there is one in each end). You know, the place where we tell the kids not to sit? LOL So he broke it with his backside while leaning back trying to turn a corner with his controller. The picture isn't the best, but you get the main idea!
So, after much laughter, reassuring the dogs they weren't in trouble (it made a huge "cracking" sound, picking up the bigger pieces and vacuuming up the tiny ones, the game resumed. We then got further amusement watching the kitten fall through the empty spot about 3 times before she realized the glass was gone (she'd run and jump on it).
So, maybe I can rest easy the next few days? I am having a wonderful time with everyone here safe and sound, though I may be a raving lunatic at the end!
