Wanted to cook nice meal, filled condo with smoke

I’m the sort of person who always has nice intentions however doesn’t necessarily do the best job bringing them to fruition.

  • I get really great ideas in my head but I tend to botch the entire plan when I actually get started, then you might say that I am too careless & actually overwhelmed to effectively pull off anything major, however sometimes I just get lost in my own head & overlook the pressing details that are critical to successfully bringing my plan into reality.

This is exactly what happened Last year when I attempted to cook a surprise dinner for my hubby… And instead I brought the entire fire department to our house. I was doing my best to keep a million warm pans sizzling on the stove when I completely forgot an pressing step in the cooking process… Turning on the ventilation fan. Before I knew it, there was smoke billowing out of several pans & the indoor air was completely contaminated with thick, black toxins. I couldn’t even see, let alone breathe, through the horrific indoor air quality that I had just created. I did my best to ventilate to the nasty indoor air by turning on in the thermostat to full blast, engaging the central Heating & A/C system, & opening every window I could for natural circulation. However, I couldn’t clear the warm & spicy smoke out of the house. I was in such respiratory distress from the low quality indoor air & contaminants I was breathing that I eventually had to flee the house. I called the fire department for help at that point & waited for someone to save my cooking disaster. My hubby was surprised when he got home…
