Adventures of Darth Daddy

Back from the edge

Today went smoother than I could have imagined, specially after yesterday. The Kids were fine - the wife came home around 10:45am - we got organized, had breakfast/lunch at IHOP, then browsed around at stores for about 2 hours. We came home, and it was nap time. Baby went to sleep - Logan went to sleep - daddy got frisky. Right as we were about to retire to the bedroom, Lance woke up and decided to rain on my parade. No sooner did he start to cry, then Logan woke up and was upset. The wife got Lance, I layed down with Logan, and the next thing I knew, it was 3 hours later. I guess we all really needed a nap. We were just getting ready to make dinner when the wife discovered that she had flooded the garage. The washing machine stopped working ( the part that determines there's enough water in it, and stops the flow), and it just overflowed all over the garage. I got 1.5 shop vac buckets worht of water out already - and there's no telling what's damaged (in the areas I can't get to yet). And it's very cold out there!! So, I threw dinner together for the boy, wet vac'ed the garage for the next hour, then came in, and it was group "put the children to sleep " time. I finally got my dinner ( I made 2 hamburgers) around midnight.

Well, Im off to Google to see if I can find a fix for that damn washign machine.

    We must be brothers in an alternate universe. The other day, I flooded out the washroom too. No wet/dry vac however. Good ole mop did the trick. I am going to have to call ARS Service Express to come out and root the drain. As for damage, I eat mold for breakfast!
