Happy Monday!

This is how I feel today.
I'm off to the neighbor's to pee... the pool to shower... and the laundromat to see if I can get raw sewage out of every article of clothing Ryan owns. Oh, and I have cramps, too. Yes, that is TMI, I know (and I apologize) but I wanted to illustrate just how friggin' inconvenient a major plumbing issue could be.

Happy Monday.

Fabulous photo! There is a limit to how neighbourly one wants to be. Hope it's sorted soon!

Protege said...

I FEEL FOR YOU!
I would HATE not to be able to use my own bathroom.
I hope all will be fixed soon.
And I agree with the comments above; the photo is hilarious!;))

Mama Wheaton said...

Love the photo! How long till the plumbings fixed?

Missy said...

So sorry for your woes! Things will get better!

namaste said...

I think that photo is a perfect depiction of what is going on out there. I think you should also really consider moving and becoming my "real" neighbor now. You can pee in my toilet anytime. ;)
Oh, and I'm with you on the cramps thing!

Summer said...

Oh girl. That does suck...

Oh, I do pity you. I lived in Oklahoma when we had the huge ice storm last year. We didn't have electricity OR water for a week in freezing temperatures. ... In times like these, I say margaritas for everyone!

SouthernBelle said...

Euwww, and I thought my office's hallway smelling like ass was a bad day!

But what I want to know is did you feel like that, then spend the morning concocting the scene, or was it something you prepared earlier?!

Melissa said...

Ok, so that picture is freaking hilarious...love it!!

I'm so sorry you are having a crappy day.... I hope your plumbing issue gets worked out--- without costing you a fortune!!

Blarney said...

Wow! Just Wow!
Oh ~ next time you take off to London my family would like to stow away in your luggage. Just watched SiCKO again this weekend and we are ready to move.

Michelle said...

It sucks!!! And its inconvenient for sure!!! You will get though it though because you will get though it with humor and jokes and then you will have all clean water and stuff!!!!

Great photo!!!!

I love that picture. I needed a good laugh. thanks. I'm just glad you aren't going to the pool to pee. that would be gross for the little children who have lessons after free swim time.

That evil Teddy is just fabulous - So sorry you are having to go through this at the moment - I really feel for you both, Diane - Sending love and warm (and clean!) hugs for a swifty resolution! xxx

hautepocket said...

I'm not sure which is funnier...the evil teddy hacking away at the unsuspecting gummies, or the fact that you OWN an evil teddy hacking away at unsuspecting gummies.

Either way, I know this post wasn't meant to be humorous, which is sad because there used to be a time when I thought sewage and poop was funny...That was until I had my OWN plumbing issue. It's awful. I wouldn't wish that much crap on anyone (Get it?).

But seriously, good luck. Think of it this way: AT LEAST YOU STILL HAVE INTERNET. Am I right?

Heather said...

Bless your poor little gummy bear murdering heart. I hope things look up soon. I can't imagine having to go shower at the pool, or having to use my neighbors bathroom. Or having to wash sewage out of my clothes...
Sheesh. Just come stay with me for awhile, k? Ryan and Sundance are totally invited, too. Clean water for everyone.

Lee said...

Red Cup Mom said...
