Love is in the air... no sorry that's the stench of poop.

Please scroll down for today's other post, that doesn't involve various names for caca. Thanks.

Guess what neighbors! Once again, in the general vacinity of my anniversary, my basement has flooded.

With poo.

Yup, that's right... Severe thunderstorms and rain the last 20 minutes, and the sewage backs up through a drain in my basement floor.

I just called the hubs to share the good news, and reminded him that this is the second time this has happened before our anniversary.

"What's the basement trying to tell us?" John asked.

"You want to know? It's saying your the sh*t, baby."

"That's right, I am the sh*t! See? the basement knows."

Exuse me while I go open the windows and light a candle. I light this candle in the name of Love.


And poo.

Sounds like my parents house. We use to have carpet in my room (located in the basement). Not anymore.

That is NOT a good way to spend your anniversary. gag.\

Is there a saying: "The family that cleans poo together stays together?" probably not.

Mert said...

Sewage, Pamela... but ya know... pooh is pooh, no matter where it comes from. LOL!

Karmyn, I don't think there is a saying like that but there should be ;)

Daddy Forever, I hope they sealed the floor before they put carpet down because otherwise your room was probably a science experiment underneath the carpeting.

OMG! I think I would just close everything up and move out. How do you even begin to clean that up?

Nothing like a backed up sewer in the summer. Life is good!

It's the Universe making your husband pay a little more for that sweet camera he bought recently...

I like the simplicity of your new blog look, but the blue letters on the black background are hard to read. It DEFINITELY loads faster though. I used to open another window, link to your page and do other stuff while your page loaded. It loads faster now.

Too funny! At least you have a sense of humor about it.
