I am banning myself from using space heaters as punishment for not being careful
I am so upset with myself because I ruined my favorite blanket. You see, I had been so careful about setting my space heater near anything that could melt, but the one day that I forgot, I melted my favorite blanket. That blanket was about twenty years old. It was a wedding gift to me and my husband. It had our anniversary on it, and I cannot believe that I was silly enough to set my space heater close enough to that blanket to melt it. My husband does not get as attached to things as I do, so I knew that he would not be as upset when I told him about the blanket as I was when I saw what had happened. I walked into the living room that afternoon, and I smelled something weird. I could not figure out where the smell was coming from. I kept trying to follow my nose to the smell until I eventually found it. It was my melting blanket. I actually cried when I first figured out what had happened. My husband said that he is going to try his best to find the exact same blanket and have our anniversary stitched onto it just like the one that was melted. I am banning myself from using space heaters as punishment for not being careful. I don’t know how realistic that will be though because I get pretty cold in my living room during the evenings. I will probably end up using a space heater again just because of how cold it gets.
