Still scattered...

Huh. Well, what do you know? It's Friday. A whole day has gone by and I didn't even realize it...

I could post about my regular 2 am wake-ups from weird dreams. The one where my parents handed me a huge pile of bonds and stocks that they "forgot" they had bought for me when I was little. And how I woke up feeling euphoric until I remembered: Ah. Dream. Dangit...

I could write about the toilet that won't stop running. Even after I turned the water off. Even after I messed with it and messed with it until I said "Well, we'll just have to wait until we have a bit of cash for that suction piece thingy" and was thankful that at least it was just the water bill which is a small expense. Until I woke up at 6 am (After falling back asleep for the first time this week!!!! Grrrr!!) to Patrick's dismayed call. "Why is there water in the hallway?!?"

Groaaannnn....

I remembered my actions from the night before. I remembered Evan's description of how the toilet he'd just used (ahem) was almost overflowing. It was too full of water to plunge without splashing icky water over the floor, so I locked the bathroom door with the thoughts of plunging it once it drained a bit. EXCEPT I hadn't taken into account this whole "continuously refilling tank" issue. And the water all over the hallway (and some of the living room carpet! Joy!) was from the toilet.

FUN TIMES! You can imagine how happy I was to be starting my day by using ALL of the towels I had literally just washed AND put away (a rarity). They are now BACK in the washing machine with hot water and extra soap. Please don't let the washing machine overflow...

That said, some very sweet friends and family have provided bits of help this past week, making it possible to not only feed my family without a trip to the store but also to keep good on the birthday present we promised Justin. He and I will be going to Mammoth Cave for a Mother/Son bonding fest. And we will have the money for gas AND food while there!!

Thank you all..

Keep your eyes open for another really cool giveaway that I will soon host. I am just having issues with the videos I have made and cannot really fathom using the ones that are done. Really, I look weird and am rambling which isn't unusual but is still annoying...

The coffee is calling my name and Corinne is begging to play her Webkinz Jr. (have you entered that giveaway yet?) so I am off. Have a great Friday!
