Have You Ever Called Rotorooter

Hi Neighbors!

How are you doing today?I am tired, but it is a good tired.  We spent the day at Disney!  My husband and I came back early to have dinner together!  He went and picked up special dinners and we are having a quiet dinner for two.  Now something that I would really hate to do right now is have to call a local Rotorooter.  Since we are in a hotel I would not have to do that!  I will be posting more about our day later.

What is the worst plumbing experience you have ever had?  We actually have had several in the home we now are living in, but I think we have those all fixed, except for a small leak in the basement that we are hoping is coming from water running off the edge of the tub.  I really don't need anymore major plumbing problems.  I believe we have had enough!

I do want to share about a leak we had previously.  We had a leak in the pipes under our bathroom and had to tear up the floor.  We had a gaping hole right beside our bathtub and in front of the toilet.  We actually had to lift our daughters over the hole to the toilet.  They had to perch there like little birds and then get help to get down, as they did not want to fall in the hole.  At the time it was not very amusing, but of course it is quite a bit easier to laugh after it is over.

Fortunately we only had to live like this 2 days.  When he was not working on the repair we were able to lay a piece of plywood down and walk across.  Not only was I happy to have the repair done, but the girls were happy too!  It is funny the odd stories you remember when looking back.  The girls still remember this too!

So what was your most memorable plumbing nightmare? Something stuck in a pipe that shouldn't have been there?  Or maybe you had some pipes burst at the most unexpected time.  Of course, who goes around expecting their pipes to burst?  take a minute to share what happened to you.

See you At the Fence soon, with an update to our trip!

I don't need to call a roto rooter man, got my hubby to do it. He's a residential contractor that keeps our home in good repair.

We purchased a home and the basement was all nice and dry and painted but whenever we went to view it before purchasing, they had no lights in there to really see things good. We bought the home, and our first large rainfall left toys floating, new rugs that we paid $500 for ruined, furnishing soaked, etc. What happened was he freshly painted it, deliberately left lights out and we found out later. He did end up having to pay us for this one.Disaster!

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child
