Just Say No To Crack...

Okay, I only titled that because we're having the plumber out tomorrow. Seems like there's a problem in the lines somewhere and the utility sink is all clogged up.

The City had done some work on the lines on the next street over late last week, so we're not sure if that has anything to do with it. Our water looked yucky and dirty until it ran clear when we first used the faucets after they'd finished whatever they were doing over there. And, we had a lot of air in the lines.

The pisser is that I'm sick and I had a doctor's appointment tomorrow - I was hoping to get in and get a Z pack or something. This is actually an appointment I had cancelled and rescheduled from last week due to bad weather. So, this will be the second time I have to reschedule this appointment.

Hopefully, they won't be too mad at me. I've been seeing our general physician for at least 10 years and have never once cancelled, rescheduled or missed an appointment - EVER.

It's just that the plumber said he'd be here tomorrow, for sure, but gave no official time. So, I must sit and wait on him.

I just hope whatever is wrong is a quick (i.e. cheap) fix.

And on a final note - not related to my plumbing problems - I wanted to send a shout out to my friend J in Texas who gave me the Crock Pot Chicken Tortilla recipe! It is so good, I'm making it again this week! I also found a good Italian Sausage Sub Sandwich recipe that is a crock pot recipe too. I'll post that one later on (Renn - it doesn't include cream of anything soup!)


  1. Good luck with your plumbing adventure and get your butt in to the doctor for drugs.

  2. Usually my doctors' office is happy to reschedule if I mention fearing I may be contagious because I have a low-grade fever and I really wouldn't want to spread it to their staff. :) Just a suggestion.

    Hope you get to feeling better.

    Plumbers suck. I've been through a few companies now and found the suckage to be fairly normal. Share if you get a good one.

  3. LOL @ your title ;D

    Funny, but hubby ended up working 4-hours this evening to unclog our kitchen sink/disposal. Still don't know what was in it, but he's sure it was my fault. First time it ever happened though and of course it was after "I" peeled the potatoes & ground the peels. It surely couldn't have been the sausage grease "he" left draining from the pan in the sink all morning, ;)

    Hope you feel better soon & can keep that apptm't. Its a pain to wait around for people that won't give a time. I did a lot of that last summer during the kitchen remodel. (But do give him Hell if he don't show!)

  6. Viennagirl - I posted it a few blogs down, but here it is:Crockpot Chicken Tortillas
    4 (or how many ever) boneless, skinless, chicken breasts
    1 jar/can of picante or salsa (whatever heat you like)
    1 pkg of dry taco seasoning

    Put chicken in crock pot. Add taco seasoning to salsa and pour over chicken. Set to high and cook for 8 hours. Shred and use in tortillas, enchiladas, etc. It's good with tomato, lettuce, frijoles, sour cream, cheese, black beans, black olives, etc. Dress to fit your tastes. Yummy.

  7. Hey--- I gave you an Excellent Blogger award at my site! Come copy it and paste in your sidebar :)

  8. Yay! I am anxiously awaiting the new recipe!

    Feel better first, ok?
