Hump day was a crash, burn kind of day filled with stress. It turned out to be another snow day in the land of ice and snow, but at least the promise of school resuming with a call from the superintendent that although there would be a 2 hour delay, the little darlings would finally return to school. That wasn’t the worst of it. Waking up and discovering the pipes had frozen was the clincher. I went through all the motions of trying to warm up the pipes to get the water flowing to no avail. I finally had to call the heating plumbing guys I usually use and they hurried right out to lend a hand. The pipes were frozen leading into the house so they took a little blow torch to them. I freaked out a little when they caught the curtain on the back door on fire, but it was out quick enough.
After they left, the water finally started back up. By that point, night had fallen. There was supper to prepare. The kids needed showers and I was more than ready for bed after all the drama from the day with no water. So this is Wednesday’s post on Thursday scheduled for Wednesday. I am still in the game then with NaBloPoMo and the Ultimate Blog Challenge, though cheating a bit to accommodate life’s curve ball. Life has surprises. You have to learn to roll with them, survive them, and go on from there even more prepared for next time. Then you get back to normal and schedule your post back a day so it appears you wrote it then instead of now. It kind of works, you know!! I’m keeping warm and safe, happily blogging away once again.
