So the week comes to an end... finally. This was the first week of having Carter at home with me everyday, and it was along week. Not because I had him or because he was bad or anything, actually he's the easiest kid I've ever seen, it was just a long week. I think getting used to working form home and the new schedule and everything just prolonged what was already going to be a long week. Carter's party is tomorrow and he's officially 1 on Sunday... weird. He's crawling like mad now (had to barracade the living room yesterday to contain him) also very very close to walking. He'll walk everywhere so long as he has something to hold on to. So tomorrow before his party I am puting the latches on all the cabinets in the house and cleaning the floor everywhere so he doesn't find a random piece of lint to munch on. Anyways, had a request to post a new blog ;) so here ya go, have a great friday and wonderful weekend. Boo 6-8 inches of snow!!!
So sunday morning I get a call at 9:00 from Pathway telling me that the womens bathrrom is flooding due to the toilets backing up...eww. This is not a total suprise after the issues we had a few weeks ago be we had really hoped that snaking out the sewer line would fix the problem. Not so much. So Tuesday we had a guy come out with his big tractor and start digging. First we tore out the flowerbed by the parking lot because this is about where we though the break was. To our surprise however the pipe there was not broken or clogged and was actually PVC not older stuff. So the guy sent his camera down the line from the other end and located the clog that way... it was about 15 feet from where we had dug... So, we began to dig there... and sure enough we found the problem. There was a Y in the pipe where another line joined it and there were roots all inside of the joint. When I say all inside I mean the entire pipe was fullied with thick coarse roots. not just one root, thousands of tiny roots all weaved together, totally clogging the pipe. I am thankful however that I was not the guy in the hole this time because when he hit the pipe with his hammer it gushed forth sewage all over him. I was standing on the driveway trying not to laugh...poor guy.
hey everybody been a little while since we updated this/ Really since I updated this, allison isn't involved... mainly because she doesn't have time. Thngs are good. Carter is almost one (crazy) He is doing great, almost walking and crawling at this point, we aren't sure which he'll do first. We are excited about his birthday but can't believe it's been a year already. He is so much fun now, we just sit around in the house most nights and play with him until the letter show comes on TV (wheel of Fortune) He loves to watch it, probably just the sound of the wheel spinning and all the bright lights and sounds. All in all though he is great, mostly healthy, or at least as healthy as an infant can be thier first winter. He's happy and love ot play and interact. He's saying mama and dadda and nana and papa and grandma and grandpa and turle and dog dog and football. He just learned his name today and says Carter pretty well. He knows other words too but I'll spare you the reading.
