We had so much fun putting on our water boots and exploring the creek. We got to pet a corn snake and a box turtle. Seven's favorite part was inside the museum when he got to play with the water exhibit.
Then last night I was very happy my camera didn't work. Because I broke the kitchen sink.
We have a double sink (disposal on one side) and it was clogged on both sides. Both sides were full of water that would not drain. Usually I just get the plunger and clear it right up, but this time the water just kept going back and forth from one side to the other. So I got the pipe wrench, put a big mixing bowl underneath, and unscrewed the little U-shaped piece. I kept switching the bowl with another one and emptied them several times into the bathroom sink, climbing over the dog gate balancing a bowl full of water each time, until all the water drained out.
No problem. No clog. I got the snake (I have kind of a snake theme running today, don't I?) and ran it through the pipe to try to find a clog. Nothing. So I decided to put it all back together and hope for the best.
But when I tried to reattach the U-shaped pipe, the big long pipe beyond the U broke off into my hand and water gushed out all over the place. Meanwhile Dan's upstairs on the couch watching the weather forecast because we were under a tornado watch. I ran around grabbing towels and trying to quietly get his attention without yelling because the kids were in bed. But I couldn't leave the sink area because I had to keep switching the buckets/bowls and emptying them into the bathroom sink. After a few minutes I got tired of running the Bucket Brigade by myself. Finally I went upstairs and said, loudly, "I would GREATLY appreciate your help downstairs!!!!"
Dan walked into the kitchen and said, "What did you do?" and I said, "I broke the kitchen sink. What does it look like I did?"
Ten wandered in, awakened by all the commotion, and said, "Wow, Mom. What did you do to the sink?"
I glared at him. He said, "Oh, oooo-kay. Well, since I'm here can I have some bread? I'm starving."
I'm just glad my camera is broken so Dan couldn't take a picture of my lower half sticking out of the area under the sink.
I'm not sure if we have a wide angle lens.
