My yesterday.... [Jan. 18th, 2006|08:52 am]
Verminius Rex
About half an hour before Elliot (a tiny 14 month old I was watching for 3 hours) showed up, I noticed water coming from under the sink. Some of the pipes had come loose, easy fix really but no time to get new joint nuts and seals. So I do a stopgap there, then watch a tiny child cry for 3 hours for his mother. Luckily they are tuned to specific parents, so his voice didn't shatter my sanity. His mother is going to see if someone else can watch him for the next two days, so that no single person bears all the joy of a crying child for 3 hours. After Marz got home I shipped an order and got new plumbing to deal with the issues, total spent under $5. I also put a bit of wood underneath to support the pipes a bit better, since before it was rigid iron and now it's pvd. Works well, and I was able to do a load of dishes last night. This morning, I am doing many loads of laundry to catch up.

Goals for today include a trip to the dry cleaners (Kiyan spit up on my wool coat), and trips to 2 stores for tea if possible.
