It was 10:30am, my husband was on his way to Hawley to take the table I rented for the Relay yesterday back to the store, the kids were playing NickJr on the computer when I decided I needed to check the good ole bank account online to see how much money could be spent for groceries since my husband has been laid off for two weeks and we are just squeaking by.
I send the kids to the family room downstairs to clean up their toys and I go online. I didn’t notice that my soon to be (in 5 weeks) 2 year old decided to head upstairs to reek some havic. I sat solemnly at the computer looking at my account when I heard the upstairs toilet flush…soon I saw my 4 year old come downstairs, so I assumed that was from him. Then I hear the toilet flush again and again and then the sound of rushing water. I yell, “Where is the baby???” and my stomach sank as I hear, “I dont know” from my two sons.
I ran up to my bathroom to find myself ankle deep in water as it rushed out from the toilet. I was surrounded by Q-tips and toilet paper and my almost 2 year old saying, “Uh oh.” I yelled for my 7 year old to grab me the toilet plunger, as I grabbed mass amounts of towels and tried sopping up all the water before it could go through the ceiling.
I wasn’t fast enough.
Soon I heard my 7 year old saying, “Its raining through the light in the ceiling mom!”
I heard my 7 year old and 4 year old discussing that they wanted to go stay in a hotel because boy was mom in trouble with dad!
So now I’ve lost my ceiling in the kitchen, the drywall just crumbled with the water pouring through. I’m also a little nervous to turn on the light since water still keeps coming through the electrical wire. To add to that, how am I to know just how many Q-tips remain in the pipes?
Oh the joy of having a 2 year old.
On another note, I noticed it mentioned in the survey that someone thought my old blog is gone. I wasn’t sure what you meant because I only changed the template on this spa blog; everything is still intact in the archives. If you meant my diary, then yes, I removed it from view in my profile. However, it still exists. It’s here: I need to vent. I removed it from my profile because I just didn’t think those who came to hear about beauty really wanted to know about my dealings in pregnancy pee sticks and their radio frequencies. lol. Feel free to bookmark it or subscribe to it, so you can find it.
Thank you to those who answered the survey, I love hearing your feedback.
Also, for those who listen to the podcast, I apologize that there hasn’t been any newer shows. Unfortunately Odeo takes forever to fix the bugs in their system. I have recorded a show and it goes out to the vacuum of cyberspace never to be heard from again. I recorded this show over and over…and still my Odeo account does not save it. The show will be on our facial line as a special treat for Miss Cinnamon. So Cinnamon, if you (or anyone else), has any questions you want to submit regarding our facial line or skincare questions, drop me an email and I will answer them for you in the podcast.
That is, when Odeo decides to fix the bugs.
