typical

This is really what you want to see when you're looking to purchase a home...

(flooded shower floor)

THIS HAS NEVER HAPPENED SINCE WE'VE BEEN IN THIS HOUSE. But of course, it happens now, 30 minutes before a potential buyer is to come.


I tried to unclog whatever it was (Tom says it's my hair - he's probably right) with a barbeque skewer and a chop stick. It wasn't working.


So I had to haul out the big guns. Who knew a turkey baster had so many uses. Between the mucky shower water and Chumley's pee, I think it's time for a new one.



I'm sick of showing this house. If it happens again I'm leaving it just like this.

owww...that is crappy timing.
Have you tried an actual plunger?
they really work pretty well. I find they work excellent in the hands of a man. ;)

Isn't it true that those things seem to happen when you need the place to look its best, or right after your husband has left for a business trip...or both? I hope you got it unclogged!

That last picture is hilarious!

What a major pain. I hate the house-selling process too.... we've only had to go through it once, but it was such a hassle. (Our kids were 2 and 3 when we had to sell our first home.... plus we had 2 cats and a rowdy Black Lab..... it made it "challenging" to keep it show-able, to say the least...)
