my midnight escape turned into a wild night which resulted in the filming of an exercise video

My weekend started off with a bang (which really is a TERRIBLE choice of words considering what I'm about to say) Thursday night when someone in our apartment complex was shot with a gun. I thought the gun part would be obvious, but when I was telling the story to Erika she said, "YOU MEAN SHOT WITH A GUN?!" I suppose it's possible it could have been a crossbow, but it wasn't. 

I had zero desire to spend the rest of the night at home alone after that, so I tossed a few things in a bag and prepared for a midnight escape to Hotel de Jenn. After I packed my bag I made the bed. Obviously it was not important for me to do that and I have no explanation for why I did except that I recall saying to myself, "I have to make sure the bed is neat in case the shooter comes in here." Because the most important thing to do when your life is in danger is ensure that people are impressed with your housekeeping skills. I'm surprised I didn't spend a few minutes cleaning the inside of the microwave.

The owner/operator/housekeeper at Hotel de Jenn is extremely generous and said I could stay as long as I want. Personally I think she was glad someone else was around to watch Sam's trash truck movie with him and pretend it was the most fascinating thing we'd ever seen. 
Molly spends a good deal of her life alternating between trying to eat Sam's food and crying to be picked up asking in a quiet and lady like voice to be held. In this picture she's wondering why Sam got to try coffee and she didn't. 
 
"Surely Mom isn't worried about coffee stunting my growth."
Without really meaning to, Jenn and I turned the second night of my stay into a wild party night. And by wild party night I mean we sat on the couch talking and consuming an impressive amount of chocolate and Jelly Bellies. I had the best time with her. I'm pretty sure it was one of the only times Jenn has voluntarily stayed up that late since she'd had children.

It has yet to be confirmed, but in a fit of unusual silliness (Serious and Dignified are our middle names) it's possible that we may have begun filming a vlog. 

And now that I've put the vlog secret out there I guess that means we'll have to finish it.

Oh myyyy, how scary about the shooter!

Jen said...

That is seriously scary that someone got shot! So glad you had a good time with Jenn.

I love that in the face of danger you made your bed - PRIORITIES. It's like your mother always telling you to wear clean underwear because you never know when paramedics will have to cut it off you. Or was that just my mother?
