Really Glamorous Thursday

The plumbing issue has returned.

First clue: Caden-9yr says, “hey. there’s mud in our sink.”

And Ethan-13yr says, “Ummmmm. I don’t think that’s mud.”



The plumber is on his way.

For plumbing purposes only.

Sure, last time he was here he sort of did an ab flash, sweat wiping with a t shirt move that was frankly, the most excitement I’ve had in ages. But it was somewhat less effective because his face was spattered in raw sewage.

My personal raw sewage. I presume. And my children’s.

MMmmmm, sexy.

That’s real funny, God. I go through a ‘I kinda need to lick some random man’s face’ phase and the only one who appears has a face that is sprinkled in poo. ┬áHA. I mean, really. I GET THE MESSAGE, GOD. I’m over it. REALLY.

THEN. The landlord – who has a fatherly thing for me – tells me completely out of the blue that I have probably been hurt a lot and dating the plumber is probably not a good move, and watch out because he likes me.


I’M NOT INTERESTED IN THE PLUMBER. OKAY? I’d just like to clear that up. And my pipes, too. And that’s all.

I’d like to be able to hear a flush and not have to immediately pray that it’ll all be okay. I do not think that is too much to ask.


There’s tons of stuff going on that is filling my head but I can’t discuss it yet.

But yaknow, hang in there, because you sure don’t want to miss my description that is sure to follow of what it is like to bugbomb a (practically new and perfectly otherwise clean) microwave in a trashbag in order to rid it of the roach nest within. That is Jenn’s professional advice, and it’s on the schedule for today. After plumbing appointment.


The boys are REALLY excited. I suspect there will be much girly screaming and hopping, and not just from me.

Bless your heart! To have to deal with not only icky plumbing issues, AND a nest in your microwave? I love how you find a way to handle it all with grace and humor. Hang in there kiddo – it’s got to get better!

Hilarious! I’m glad licking a random plumber’s face is not on the things-to-do list today. Crack is addictive, you know ;)

Hi lady, I am not sure if you remember me or not, but I came across your name and thought I would say hi!
