Remember that song from Bruce Springsteen?
Do you know what THIS picture is?
It's the little felted lop-eared bunny I made last night
in our felting class at the library.
Now, that was a good day.
That was fun.
That involved tacos and a cool beverage at the pub up the street
before going back to the library to make this little guy.
This? Not so fun.
Remnants from the water in the basement
Last night the sump pump died.
It was 20 years old
It tried hard but it's little heart just gave up.
What am I saying???
I'm wet, dirty, and tired.
Actually, I'd like to kick the son-of-a-gun to the curb...
Me and my husband do not do home projects well together.
Those of you who paint your cabinets white, and strip furniture, and do fun things like roofing, sheet metal, installing drywall and all the other fun DIY projects together and
Well, God bless you.
We are not like that.
This was my best friend today.
It's the top to the wet-vac.
We have become very close.
I think we'll be taking a cottage by the sea together.
This is the new sump-pump.
It's 1 horse power.
This son of gun will pump out the entire neighborhood!
I Googled "changing sump pump."
I found a website that said
and I quote,
"If you can change a spark plug you can change a sump pump"
Let me just say
that isn't exactly true.
At one point I thought my dear husband might be
wearing a wrench or a large PVC pipe as a hat.
I'm pretty sure he was thinking the same thing about me.
The good news is that no divorce papers were filed.
The bad news is we are short on money this week.
The good news is I have 3 dozen eggs!
The bad news is it's a crap-shoot
if they are hard-boiled or raw.
