I thought I would give you a glimpse of what was going on at my house while Momma was away..........Poor Poor Darling Husband.....giggle giggle


 


Sometime during Thursday morning after Hubby went off to work and he left our soon to be 19 year old in charge of getting our 2 lil ones off to school, when a pipe in the crawl space ruptured, now the usually bright 18 year old thought that someone was either in the shower or a toilet must be running somewhere in the house and left the house as soon as the bus picked up the two lil ones.......Hubby comes home from work to the sound of rushing water and goes to investigate the noise and see's old faithful in the crawel space drowning the floor boards in the living room........OH VEY! Hubby spends all night fixing the sump pump and then drying out the crawl space all day Friday.


 


Friday the almost 19 year old cooks dinner for her boyfriend and leaves the kitchen a total mess.......When Hubby see's her again, words are said but she promises to come home and straighten up the kitchen Saturday Morning. (She is the one still experimenting living outside the house but still likes to eat at home from time to time..GRRRRRR!) Needless to say she doesn't show up to do as promised so Hubby enlists the help of our 13 year old daughter.....beautiful, talented child that she is still gets confused with ordinary things, you need to explain in great detail every thing you want her to do, kinda like she doesn't have improvisational skills and in life you have to learn to improvise........Hubby tells her to load the dishwasher and run it, but does NOT tell her which detergent to use, so instead of using the detergent strictly for dishwashers.....Dory (Nickname for 13 yr old daughter) puts in dishwashing liquid.........15 minutes later my kitchen is a SEA OF BUBBLES about 2.5 feet high........Hubby drags out shop vac and goes to town busting bubbles, DORY is right behind him with mop and floor rags....Now Hubby has to take DORY to a meeting in an upcoming fund raiser she is entertaining at (Yes! she was picked to be part of the entertainment at the audition she did a few weekends ago!) So hubby and the 2 lil ones leave...Enter 18 year old who has no idea what happend and while Jim and the kids are gone, she adds the right detergent to the dishwasher (already cleaned dishes mind out) and leaves the house, but since alot of the wrong liquid was still in its system again Hubby walks into a SEA OF BUBBBLES.....


Sunday my 12 year old son becomes ill with slight temperature and a sore throat, Sunday night he's a lil worse.....but Monday hubby still sends him to school only to be called to come get him due to 'PINK EYE'


No wonder this man was THRILLED to death to see me come home on Tuesday, once again he has walked a mile in my fuzzy slippers and wonders how I am always able to handle everything as it happens without batting an eye and once again I tell him it's because I will always have him to hold me up.......


If I would of known any of this was going on I might of missed my plane.......accidently of course! lol
