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. :)
