All morning long Sarah and I kept hearing this noise downstairs. It sounded exactly like the time we caught a mouse on the kitchen counter playing with a piece of aluminum foil. So we kept tip toeing down the steps to catch it. No mouse. Then we started singing, "Come out, come out wherever you are." No mouse. We got ready for work and Sarah went outside to wait for the bus.
All of a sudden I hear Sarah screaming, "Mom, get the camera." (sign of a true blogger) I came running as she impatiently says, "Come look. Hurry!!"
She goes to the front door. At first I didn't see what she wanted to show me.
"Mom, don't you see the hole in the glass?" oh, Oh, OH!!! Good grief. The entire front door was shattered. That was the noise. It was mildly creaking as it was falling out. I handed Sarah the camera and went into the garage to get the shovel.
This is really weird. I expected to find a rock or something inside that had been thrown at it. But there was nothing.
I had to go put my camping boots on there were so many tiny pieces of glass.
I told Sarah, "Good thing you spotted this Sarah. If I had opened the front door from the inside this glass would have fallen into the house. You are like a detective house inspector." She loved that. "Ya, ya put it on the blog right now so my friends can see."
"I'd love to stay and help mom, but my bus is here."
"Bye Sarah. Have a great day." I said.
It really is amazing to me how they have perfected the manufacturing of glass to crumble like this. None of the edges were really sharp and actually a pretty easy cleanup. I am so glad Sarah found it though so it did not fall into the house. That would have made me paranoid for walking barefoot for weeks. THANK YOU SARAH!!!
