Shit Storm

16 Feb

My parents arrived yesterday for a visit. They haven’t seen Lucy since October. She’s changed so much since then – she’s walking, talking, learning to swim – I just can’t wait for them to have some time with her.

So, today I came into work for the morning with the plan of meeting my folks at our house around noon for lunch. Lucy would be well rested from her usual 10-noon nap and we’d all have a fantastic afternoon together.  But we all know what happens to the best laid-plans…

Justin sent me a cryptic text message earlier this morning: “I don’t think we’ll be eating lunch at home today…”

Hmm. No biggie, I thought. The propane tank is probably empty. We’ll eat in town and refill the tank.

But then I remembered that we just refilled the tank a few weeks ago. It couldn’t be empty already.

Too curious to wait, I called Justin to learn that there is a shit storm in our house. Yes, a literal shit storm.

Sewage has backed up into our showers and the entire house reeks of shit. Worse, it’s probably our own shit. Gross.

In a previous post, I referred to good days as lemonade days. From here on out, we’ll be referring to shitty days as, well…shitty days.

    Oh this is so not funny, but I’m laughing at your description of it all! I hope HOPE everything gets resolved soon! Good luck!
