Project Optimism: It’s Time To Flush The Toilet!

Remember when we couldn’t move in for a month because of plumbing problems? And then I had to be rushed out of the shower? And then…? Oh well, then last week we had to evacuate to my mom’s because we could no longer use any water.

Finally, last week, Daddy actually called a plumber. A big step for him considering he doesn’t like to have strangers (or people he knows) over to his messy house.

Friday they came and dug up the sewer pipe in the front yard. Daddy said there were so many tree roots in it, he didn’t know how any water was draining.

Good news! We can go back home! I haven’t yet, because I’ve been sick and my mom’s place contains certain niceties, such as food. But when we go home, I can shower and flush with impunity.

As for last week’s optimistic goals: I confess, I came down with a cold that prevented me from doing most of those things. But it hasn’t gotten me down. This is a new week and, without pushing myself too hard, I hope to be back in shape by the end of the week.

Happy Monday y’all!


  1. Digging up a sewer pipe does not sound fun…

  2. There is nothing better than a good flush!

    Yet, food is a nice thing to have too. Is it bad to eat on the bowl?


  3. Happy Flushing!!!

  4. ‘pushing myself too hard’ + a picture of a toilet = me laughing.

    I called in sick today too, was so nauseaus this morning but feeling better now so am doing expense reports and reading your blog.

  5. Ahhhh, the joy of flushing and being able to use water. I hope you feel better Jilly-bean.

  6. Yay for the toilet! Hope you’re feeling better now :-)
