We've lived in our current house for just over 4 years and we love it here. The house and the location are just exactly what we had always wanted. Prior to this, we owned a house for over 10 years in a different part of town. Why we stayed so long, I don't know... but, we're in this house and it's great.
The house is over 50 years old and is situated on a double lot, so there is quite a bit of ground to cover when it comes to yard maintenence.
On Saturday, the Evil Twin was getting his wheelbarrow out of the shed in the back yard to gather up weeds and other debris.
We have this crab apple tree that sits near the shed and this season, it has over produced it's little crab apples and they are all over the ground. Sissy likes to pick them up and throw them. The deer, squirrels, chipmunks, bunnies, etc. like to come around and nibble on them.
While the Evil Twin tried to roll the wheelbarrow out, he stepped on a wayward apple and his feet slid out from under him. He busted his ass on the ground and then the wheelbarrow landed on top of him.
While he was outside doing yard work, I was inside doing laundry.
Sissy had been wearing a new dress earlier in the week and had a diaper blow out episode. So, I put the dress in the utility sink with some Oxyclean before putting it in the washer. I had a load of clothes in the dryer and added another load to the washer, forgetting that I had the sink full with the stopper in place.
The washer drains into the utility sink... so guess what happened?? That's right, we had an overflow of water all over the laundry room floor. Luckily, there is a drain in the floor there and we have a wet/dry vac, so I drained the sink and started on clean up duty.
I had caught it fairly early in the process, so it wasn't as bad as it could have been.
After all these interesting activities, the Evil Twin and I were sweaty and tired - and it wasn't even noon yet!
Sometimes we get boring weekends. I like those weekends.
