It's always fun when one of your kids wakes you up at 4:00 in the morning
to tell you they just threw up in their bed.
And as you're gathering the sheets and blankets together you remember
your washing machine doesn't work properly
and the repairman isn't coming until tomorrow.
It's always fun when you go down to the storage room in the basement to put the cushions from the porch furniture away and you realize the carpet is all wet.
And then you realize that the furnace man who put a new motor in the furnace
accidentally knocked the plastic tubes from the water softener out of the drainage hole
and now you have to try to figure out how to get the carpet dry from
two days worth of the water softener draining out
on to the concrete floor
and then out into the finished basement.
Seeing that Thanksgiving is next week,
I need to look for something to be thankful for.
I'm thankful that I decided to put the porch furniture away on Saturday.
Otherwise the water softener would still be draining out on to the floor.
I'm thankful that the washing machine decided to work this morning.
The spin cycle still doesn't work properly,
but I was able to get everything
washed in hot water.
I'm truly thankful that my daughter threw up in her bed
and NOT on her way to the bathroom.
I can always wash the sheets and blankets in the washing machine.
Not so easy to wash the carpet.
Well unless it's the carpet down in the basement.
That will be nice and clean and sanitized sometime this morning after
the pro's come to get the water out!
Enjoy your Monday!
