I confess I get distracted EASILY and here’s why I really don’t like to cook! I cook, I really do, but it’s not my favorite thing to do. I start a meal and get bored. You know that part of the recipe that says ” bring to a boil and then simmer for 20 minutes” I get the first part “bring it to a boil” got it… it’s the simmer for 20 minutes that gets me into trouble.
I start watching TV or I get hooked into the latest Facebook post about the dog with only 2 legs that ran a marathon or I call my mom (I love my mom and our hour long chats) or I take the dog for a walk….
So here’s what I’ve done- I bought a timer, and can’t remember where I put it. I rely on the smoke detectors to go off in the kitchen. I bring a chair into the kitchen and sit right in front of the stove, that’s so fun! – all really cleaver ways to not catch my kitchen of fire…. but my favorite is we go out to eat!!!!!!!
So far I have not had to call the Fire Department or my boss at Insurance Restoration Services to save my house from my cooking…..YET!
So here’s a quick run down of the top #2-#7 reasons for a house fire- and YES I think I’ve done or am doing all of them
2. Let your electrical cords get worn out
3. Overload your power strips
4. Buy a malfunctioning electrical appliance
5. Put something flammable near something hot
6. Leave a candle unattended-just for a minute
7. Use a fireplace or wood stove incorrectly
Makes you think, doesn’t it!!! I realize my home is a train wreck- it’s a miracle it’s still standing…. Here’s the funny thing I work for a company that responds 24/7 when there is Fire Damage to your home or business. I hope I never have to call my boss because I set my kitchen on fire and I hope you never have to call us. We all know accidents happen, fires happen, life happens. At Insurance Restoration Services we get it , we really do, and we are ready to help. We make bad situations better 24/7 and we do it with compassion and support because we know this could be us one day, this could be me.
