The Evil Twin and I worked it out so I could still go to my docs office. He came home from work and stayed with Sissy, waiting for the plumber. After my appt, I grabbed lunch on the way home. The plumber had called at about noon and said he'd be here within the hour - and he was. The Evil Twin was juuuust getting ready to go back to work, but I'm glad he was here to explain the problem to the plumber.
Home maintenance, IMO, is the husband's job and if he can't do it, then he needs to call someone to do it and relay the necessary information to said person. I'll write the check when the work is done. That's about as much involvement as I can take.
Sooo, the plumber wraps things up just in time for me to go pick up Buddy from school, but he has to deliver some bad news first. Apparently, we are no longer able to use our disposall. WTF?? He said in older homes with concrete foundations, the pipes run under that and once they start getting backed up with gunk - short of jackhammering up my floor and replacing the pipes, I just probably shouldn't use the disposer ever again.
Come on! I have never lived in a house without a disposer (or dishwasher, for that matter). A girl needs her conveniences.
The Evil Twin and I plan to get a second opinion on this most poopy proclamation. Sheesh - what's next? I'm wringing out clothes to hang on a line? I don't think so.
I WILL have a disposer - or something!
Now on to happier thoughts. I've been honored with not one, but TWO awards this week, kids! I might even have to dig up that picture of me doing my victory dance in my back yard.
The first award is from Crystal at Backyard Academy. She's a homeschoolin' mama who is a knitting fan, crafty in other ways as well and always has something interesting to say. She presented me with the:
Then, Carolyn from The Ginger Quill bestowed uponeth me the:
The Excellent Blogger Award. Super cool. Carolyn is a super sweet WV gal who loves her animal babies and often has them starring in little vignettes on her blog. Always good for a laugh.
Visit my friends and have a laugh. I'm supposed to tag 10 others with the awards as well, but I'll save that one for tomorrow. (notice: cliffhanger ending to keep you coming back - yea baby, I've watched my fair share of soap operas).
