Sickness, clogged drain–setbacks this week
On the heels of needing downtime, I ended up sick over Labor Day weekend. This resulted in my routine being lost, as well as my needing to sleep, sleep, sleep. The latter didn’t happen though, because I had too much schoolwork, household duties, and other commitments to do.
Just when I started to recover, our basement sink clogged and overflowed. Not only did this result in pools of water on the floor, but everything smelled like a sewer. My husband and I spent an evening wiping up the mess and feeling grossed out. The next day we called our landlord. Turns out a tree root in the alley had gotten into the pipes. With it removed, we cleaned up the water that had backed up during the night. We also threw away boxes and other non-essentials that the water had soaked.
So, I’m starting a new weekend by once again feeling a strong need to relax. I do have a few blogging commitments but, if I can get those handled quickly and efficiently, my husband and I will treat ourselves to a “weekend couple date”. Oh, and I’m sure somewhere over the next two days, football figures in his life and reading in mine. 🙂
What’s your week been like?
