I went to church tonight, I remembered I didn't blow out my candles on my entertainment center, it was 25ish miles oneway to go home and blow them out--so 50ish to go home and come back. I asked my friend what I should do--they were jar candles, I asked her if I went home if she could drop my kids off on the way home(she is always offering to help me with the kids and I always say no my kids are kinda naughty sometimes) but this time I didn't want to waste all that gas(I am on unemployment). She kinda thought I was being lazy, and cheap, but she agreed to take them anyway. Its not my home church I have to drive 15 mile(both ways) to that one tomarrow---- what would you do-----1. left the candles burning trusting God would never let you house burn when you were at church??!! OR 2. Drive back and forth back and forth(50 extra miles on the car plus gas) OR 3. leave the kids and let the friend drop them off OR 4. Fight with two kids 7 and 11 years old, have them scream and cry all they way to the car and look like the biggest bitch taking two kids out of church when they wanted to stay

It probably would have been fine to just leave them go until you got back. I would be more concerned that your 11 and 7 year old act like such brats out in public. It's ridiculous to cry because they have to leave a place. Grow up!
