Crazy Saturday

So last Saturday(11/15) was a very rainy day. My house was clean so I decided to ,finally, sit down and finish Twilight. I got my chair all comfy with a quilt and grabbed myself a nice hot cup of coffee. See this picture doesn't look like comfy.
Here is my book and coffee waiting for me. Em is upstairs playing. I am so ready to just read.
About 20 minutes later I hear a crash!!! It sounded like a dresser or bookshelf fell over. I called out Emily's name and ran to see what it was. I didn't hear her respond and I didn't hear her crying. The only thing I could imagine is she was reaching for something and it fell. I was screaming and running to get to her. I get to the spare room/playroom/Emily's second bedroom (which she named it lol) and she is like "mommy I'm ok, whats wrong". Hmmm I am now wondering what the heck happened. When I was headed up to see Emily I also saw one of my cats run for cover under my bed-he was still there so I knew something happened! Emily and I walked around the house and looked in each room and saw nothing. I then checked each closet thinking a shelf fell. Nothing!! The house seemed completely fine. I am totally confused and decide to go back to reading. I can't read because I know something happened. So I get up and look out my french doors in the family room. While looking outside I see some small branches in the middle of my yard. I knew the lawn was just mowed so where did they come from? I look from side to side and see nothing. Then I was like wait a minute....I looked to the left again and saw it. A tree fell onto our shed and deck. I freaked because I couldn't see if it landed on the house too. I ran up stairs to the dining room and looked out the sliders and saw this.


Its hard to show you how crazy it is from the pictures, when you look out the sliders all you can see is the top of a very huge tree and it tippity tops of the tree is like 5 inches from my slider door. I went outside to investigate and took more pics and saw that the house wasn't hit at all. But the poor shed holy cow. Smashed!! Check it out!!


After trying to reach my Hubby and Father in law and lots of pictures. Trying to stop Em from crying (she thought we were stuck in the house forever). I did get my book and enjoyed the rest of that crazy Saturday!
