the great storm of '09
I waved goodbye to my dreams of making all 12 for Mr. t!m this year. Well not really waved, more like mopped out!
When I arrived home, arrived safely I might add since it was ice ice baby all the way home, I was greeted at the door with a strange hissing sound followed by a heart sinking "SLOSH" as I stepped in.
Yes ladies, the dreaded "PIPE BROKE" sounds of disaster! One little tiny split in one little tiny pipe in one little tiny space that flooded one little tiny trailer...
my little tiny trailer.
So as of right now my "to do" list that did look like three days of creative heaven now looks like this:
1. Go to hardware store and stay the heck out of paint chip isle. Pray that someone who actual knows how to fix a pipe and doesn't mind sharing, is working. Purchase parts for pipe, new insulation and plastic garbage bags ONLY. Don't get anything that has the "oh I could store my ...." with it.
2. Laundromat for 3 loads of every towel I own, cat bed, throw rugs, and those 2 sweatshirts that were in the back seat of the car.
3. Grocery store for paper plates (in case this doesn't work)!!!
So ladies, tomorrow afternoon I will be sitting crosslegged on the floor of my trailer with my little trusty toolbox by my side. I will be talking, out loud, the entire time. I am sure that at some point I will be bleeding from at least one knuckle. But, I will not give up! I will have running water, from my faucet, before I go to bed Monday night or my name is not Soggy Sally!
I know that is not my name, but let's not get to carried away. I may have to bat my eyelashes and get some guy to fix some part of it.... I am not crazy! LOL
till next time, ENJOY (the sound of your toilet flushing)! the Oz
