Never pined for one of those decorative living room waterfalls. But I got one Friday night. Well two. And they weren't so decorative flowing down from the ceiling into garbage cans. Some child named 'not me' left a sink running on the second floor and the sink drain backed up. We were all outside, it must have ran for 45 minutes before we came in.
Never wanted a new ceiling either. There are many other things in this house I would like to replace but the living room ceiling was not on the list. I may have to get one. Rats.
Never wanted boxes of damp books, but the ones in the closet next to overflowed sink are surely not dry.
Now new carpet in the bedroom near the sink, that I want. But it looks like we may be able to save that. Rats again.
All I have to say is that I am writing notes in big letters to tape up all over my house that say 'Do you know where your toddlers are?'
