Earlier this evening I was going to bake something so I turned on the oven. And for some reason this thought came into my head---My head said wow it would really suck if the oven blew up right now. And then I pictured myself getting blown back across the kitchen. And I was wondering who would take care of my kids while I laid on the floor unconscious.
Crazy, I know. What a weird random morbid thing to be thinking. So I just sort of chuckled at my crazy self.
And then I heard this huge loud WHOOOOOOOSH sound and THE FREAKING OVEN DOOR BLEW OPEN AND THE WHOLE OVEN SHOOK AND THE WHOLE KITCHEN SHOOK TOO!!!!!!!!
I jumped or was jolted? a few feet into the air. Luckily I had already stepped off to the side of the oven and the door didn't get me. I smelled gas and quickly turned the oven back off and called the gas co.
They sent someone out and it's fixed now. Something had come loose or was off--I can't remember the name of the part.
But it was FREAKY. And so strange that I had just pictured something very similar in my head right before it happened. I'm still a little jittery.

I bet you could smeel faint traces of gas and your subconscious let you know. I've had similar things happen. I remember being told in grade school during sex-ed that you could get pregnant before you ever got your first menses because you ovulated before you started bleeding. Now I was 11, never even kissed a boy, but I kept having the thought that I shouldn't have sex because I didn't want to be pregnant. I got my first period shortly after. I think my body was telling me I was going to start.
I'm glad you're o.k!
Lovin my sweet babygirl 3-17-10 and expecting another in March!

Once DD was taking a nap upstairs and I was downstairs showering, she was just under a year old. All of a sudden I got this image in my head of her falling down the stairs, and I just KNEW it was going to happen. I shut off the water and ran naked into the living room... and caught her right before she hit the tile floor. Apparently, the baby gate had broken. I am so glad that I listened to my gut then!
I'm glad you're not hurt and that your oven is fixed now!
