Good tidings to you!

We've had two major house disasters in the last 24 hours -- dead sump pump, broken sump pump, and sewer line backing into our basement utility sink. Both fixed now, thanks Husband-cat's mad repair skills and Roto Rooter's all night holiday service (man, did that guy look tired).

On the plus side, Toddler Flails-a-lot slept through the clanky sewer line clearing that happened right outside her window and we just so happen to have an industrial air purifier for the rank smell rising from the basement.

For Christmas, I think we're going to eat ham until we can't move, drink alcoholic eggnog and fight over the last piece of cake. It will be wonderful.

Whatever your flavor, happy holidays to you. :)
I'm taking the next two weeks off, but I'll be back Monday, January 7th, with all new adventures and a new posting schedule (Mon, Wed and Fri, like a baller). See you then!

    1. Happy Post-Christmas! I celebrated curled up in the fetal position thanks to a fake three day flu. All the joint pain & migraine you could wish for in a 24 hour period! Wheeee. Very, very glad to hear that you didn't executed yourself and that your husband only totaled the car. :)

  2. I was still processing the holiday when I read this ... all I could think was wish I were there, broken sump pump and all! I could help bail!!

    Back safely at home, I can say that it wasn't the best Christmas we've ever had, but we figured it out.

    Glad you weathered the storms and their repercussions ...hoping to talk to you soon!
