Exploding Toilets.

I slept in late this morning, really late. Actually, I woke at 10AM, went down stairs and popped the top on a can of Diet Coke, I looked out the kitchen window to see that it was snowing, and decided that it was just too damn cold to stand around the kitchen in my jammies, so ran back up the stairs and crawled back under the covers. The next thing I knew, it was 1:30 in the afternoon and the phone was ringing. I have no idea who it was, I didn't answer it. I've been known to sleep in, but rarely that late! I suspect that the past two days of chills and body aches may have been my body fighting off some virus, all I know, is that when I woke up, I felt 100% better. So I guess my body won that battle. I'm feeling very proud - that doesn't happen too often.

Damn it! I just went to get a bag of Cheetos out of the cupboard, and one of my precious little darlings have already been into them, and put it back into the cupboard without a clippy thing on the bag! Why is that so hard?! It's not like they couldn't find a clip, there are 6 of them clipped to the front of a box right next to the chips!!! Do you know how many bags of chips I have to throw away every week because they've turned stale and rubbery? UGH! I know, it's just a stupid little thing, but you never know which stupid little thing might push me over the edge one day . . .

Anyway, Today has been a long day. My hubby has been working a lot of hours lately. His boss made the decision to let the other service tech go, so he has been picking up the slack. He's been up early and home late all week long. The extra money will come in handy, but I miss my hubby.

I felt really bad about it, but this evening, after Roy got home from work, I had to ask him to fix a leaky pipe in the basement. He had to shut the water off for a few minutes to solder a new cap on the end of it. Afterwards, he ran the faucets to bleed the air out of the pipes. A few minutes ago, I used the bathroom upstairs, and as I flushed the toilet, there was a terrible belching sound and I turned just in time to see a huge air bubble came to the surface of the bowl and splatter all over! Normally, I would have gone downstairs and slapped him around, but when I got down to the living room, he was splayed out on the couch, snoring away. Poor baby. He looks so cute when he's sleeping. When I woke him up to send him to bed (before he started drooling all over my new couch cushions) I didn't even mention the exploding toilet incident. See, I can be a nice wifey.

Well, there really isn't much else happening around here today. I don't know if I can sleep, after sleeping in this morning. (uh, afternoon) But I'm going to go give it a try, I have to get up and get the kids off to school tomorrow. I may have to drive them, it's only supposed to be 6 degrees by morning. Brrrr !

Good night all.
Love,
Susan

I'm glad you got warmed up!

An exploding toilet does not sound too nice, I am very suspect of toilets in general - things get flushed or not flushed, water gets sucked down and doesn't return..water returns but goes up to the top of the lid.
Urgh. I don't trust them at all.

Have a good day or night!xx
