Things I just really didn't want to know

If I ever wondered how long it would take to cook all the meat in our I know. A couple weeks ago we traveled. When we came back I discovered that I had not gotten the freezer door all the way closed (it was mostly closed...just not all the way). I had to throw out a bunch of stuff, but most of the meat was still refrigerator cold. So I was able to cook it and refreeze it (fruit is re-freezable, vegetables have to be thrown out).

The answer it that it took me 13 hours with four oven racks (we have double ovens) and an electric skillet.

The other thing I just really didn't want to know but now do know is what it feels like to be punched in the mouth.
I was tucking the boys in and they were being silly. Andy was hiding under his cover. As I bent down he came up full force. He's fine.... I am not sure about me.
No teeth came out, but I am not sure they are quite where they used to be. No answer from either of the emergency numbers at the dental office, but looking online I think I am able to wait until Monday morning.

I'm just hoping that there are no more lessons like that for me to learn.

Oh, ouch! JC stood up into my nose once. It was several hours before I was sure it wasn't broken.

Sorry to hear about your freezer - our fridge has an alarm if you leave it ajar, but the freezer doesn't, and while we've never had the whole thing defrost, I've found the door partially open and had serious frost as a result. Glad you were able to salvage some of it!
