Not a fun day!

I decided not to go to the gym this morning since I've had to set the alarm the last 5 days (I am NOT a morning person!). We've been so busy and I've been so tired, so I decided I was going to sleep until whenever I wanted to.

Mother Nature woke me up at 8:50am. I go to the bathroom and hear the kids toilet running. It happens all the time, they push the handle too hard and it gets stuck and the flap thingy doesn't close. I went about my business and would fix it as soon as I finished putting in my contacts, brushing teeth and washing face.

I go down, to be greeted by about an inch of water in my second floor bathroom. I quickly fix the toilet. Jack loaded it with t.p. and since the flap didn't close and it clogged, the water just kept going and going! I yell for Chris and he comes down and all freaked out. He goes to our laundry room, which is right below that bathroom and it is raining in there! UGH!!!! Nothing like getting rained on by toilet water!! Luckily it was clear!

So, guess what I did today? Sure gives you that boost to clean!

So not fun!! Maybe I should've gotten up to go to the gym this morning, this may have not happened if I did!

I've got the laundry room all done and am now just working on cleaining up the stuff that got wet in the hallway. Glad we don't have carpeting!

Macy's birthday party was great yesterday! So much fun!! I will try to get pics edited and posted tomorrow!!

ARRGHH no fun! We have a toilet like that - we have even replaced the handle/flapper part a couple of times - it drives me nuts and I hate to think how much I wind up paying for water that literally goes down the toilet!! *lol*

Look at it this way - the clean up was probably just as hard as a workout!

melissa said...

oh man, definitely not something you wanna wake up to.

but as shell said you must have gotten a workout from all the cleaning you did ;)

I hate mornings like that. It has happened here many times when my kids were younger. Like the others said, you ended up getting a good workout for sure.
