Evacuated: Elise, Me, and Chip Chip

Elise and I were evacuated from the Roseville Galleria last night. We were waiting in the line to see Santa when an announcement came over the intercom, "This is the Roseville Fire Department. The mall is now closed. Please calmly make your way towards the nearest exit."

Thanks, Mouse!

"The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places." -Ernest Hemingway

There was a company take over a few months ago. In the shuffle, 950 jobs, including my husband's, were outsourced to India. During the transition period, while the new people in India were being trained, they kept the call center open here in North Highlands. They required employees to be at work at 5:30 am. So, my husband started getting up for work at 4:00 am.

One morning I'm woken up by John screaming, "Oh my god, Oh my god!!!!!"

I ran out to the kitchen and my big, manly husband looked like the elephants on Dumbo who were running from Dumbo's mousy friend.

"There was a mouse on top of our stove!" he screamed.

OH! I forgot I have a blog :-)

My blog has been like an abandoned amusement park for a whole year.
Sorry :-(
So, I'm going to give a rundown of the year for my own peace of mind so I can pretend that I've kept my readers informed (what readers, right!)
Right after my last post, my family and I were whisked away to the Montage in Beverly Hills for the Healthy Child Healthy World Gala.
