D'oh.

Remember how we've been talking about crazy presents, bad Christmases/holidays, etc.?  So I didn't ask for this, but apparently I got it juuuuuust in time for the holidays: a main water line break to the house, hurrah!  And all the plumbers are off for the holidays.  We may be stinky and dirty-handed for Christmas...  There may be many dishes needing a'washin'.

Basically, I'm going to be scarce.  There will be staying away from ze hoose so I don't witness all of my plants being creamed/dug up/stomped on while the front garden is ripped up to access the leak.  *cries*  They're just plants.  They're just plants.  They're...  *woe*  I hope everyone has a great holiday - tonight is the last night of Hanukkah, may there be light in your life!  And same to you who enjoyed the solstice.  Happy Christmas, Voo Doo Day, Magic Baby Eve, Holy Hand Grenade Week, etc.

*sends everyone peace and joy and fudge.  possibly tequila.  but only virtual because I'm actually made of skin and bones and flesh and not money and/or time*  SMOOCH!

[ETA]  I have found the LAST PLUMBER IN TEXAS, hallelujah.  But he can't come until tomorrow.  I'LL TAKE IT.  Still with the love and kisses to you all!
[ETA2] Because I can NOT stop singing this song.  Still. Funny.  If this is what you want for the holidays, may you get it.  With a big shiny bow.

With this weird weather: the freezing, the thaw, the freezing again, it's no wonder they're all busy!!

Happy Holidays to you!

Do pipes always wait for the worst possible moment to burst? I think it's a law.

But I am glad you found the last plumber in Texas. Have a wonderful Christmas, even as you give out coal to the boy.

Well, if that isn't the roller coaster that we call life! I hope everything is fixed very, very quickly. 8 ]

Hooray for the Last Plumber in Texas!

And what a very daft song, indeed.

Julia, possibly done shopping. Please let me be done shopping...

Three months ago my husband decided we *had* to have a drain pipe laid from the back yard to the front right through the roses. The workers dug up roses, laid pipe and then mixed the good dirt with clay and gravel leaving the rose bushes in a nice neat pile. I so sympathize.

But...working plumbing is good, too.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
