Started off GREAT, with baby sleeping until almost 7! A first! Then the plumber came at 9 to fix our shower and ended up flooding our bathroom and kitchen. He had to shut off water to the building, leading to many apologies to the neighbors. Next came my trip to the grocery store in the pouring rain. Started raining the hardest when I was leaving the store, so had a great time loading up the car in the pouring rain. Tried to pull through the post office to mail our Christmas cards, but it was ridiculous of course so I abandoned that. DW called my cell and said to hurry home as she thinks there’s a fire in the building. So I get home and she has called the fire department because our place was smoky and the smoke detectors went off. Find out that the neighbors are remodeling their bathroom and are putting hot tar in the shower stall and that is what was causing all the trouble. Abject apologies to the firemen, who came rushing over in the pouring rain. Add baby and cat shenanigans, and OMG, Calgon take me away!
All better now, though, as baby is napping and DW and I are hanging out eating fudge. I’m glad this happened today as opposed to the day of baby’s party or tomorrow, his actual birthday.
