I know, I haven't posted. Sometimes life is just very mundane. :) For example, my day today-woke up about 5:00 and did some drawing and watercolor doodles. Girls got up, made breakfast, and I read the Bible and catechism study to my boys, clean house, the usual stuff. Then the boys come up and say the washer machine is overflowing so I go downstairs to investigate. No, it was the toilet, not the machine. Bring on the bleach. Clean it up and wonder to self who could have been standing there flushing the toilet over and over because there was clearly more water there than just one flush. Throw away little area rug-not nice enough to bother with. Listen to boys read their lessons, daughter leaves for church decorating-we have an All Saints Day celebration on the 31st. Note to self, look for costumes tomorrow. Other kids leave for various piano and violin lessons. More schoolwork. Suddenly very tired. (I had about three hours of sleep the night before) so put boys in care of 14 yr old and went for nap. Got up to coffee brewing (yeah!) and husband saying no, it wasn't just the toilet, it is the main water line to the house. Tell renters no water use. Call Roto Rooter. Guy comes out and says it will be about 500.00 (at least) owing to our basement , heaviness of tools, safety requirements, etc. Really, really nice guy, suggests we call around, smaller company may not charge so much. So I do call around. Finally got a quote of 250. Hubby is inspired to buy his own tool and decides to try himself. Please go get him beer. Yes, beer is probably a good asset for a job like that. Go get beer and also tater tots-Wed is my night to make left overs and quickie food for dinner and the kids want tater tots. Older kids come home from choir and lessons, we talk and eat tater tots. Husband succeeds with water line. Yeah! Tell renter, you guys can flush the toilet now, aren't you happy? :) They are, we chat, they make pie, I go to bed. I need to call the plumber in the morning and cancel.
Tomorrow, schoolwork, (a trend?) house cleaning (definitely a trend), steak fajitas for dinner, and I've got to, got to look for those costumes.
See? Mundane. Who could be interested? I ask you?
