I had to make Taylor a special treat yesterday because she asked me when I was “going to start cooking fancy again”. So I knew anything s’mores would make her happy. The hubby comes home today and I’ll start the “fancy” cooking again. No pressure there… :/
My hubby has been out of town (28.36 long miles away in Dallas) for a few days, so something would have to go wrong. While he has been out of town in the past I’ve had geckoes, an injured hawk, beeping smoke detectors, dead bunnies…. So yesterday when I went to get the mail I heard rushing water, noticed a mud pit in my front yard, and saw a river running down my street. Since I live in Texas and we hadn’t seen rain since like 1982, I knew something had to be wrong. (of course once my yard was completely flooded it started pouring down rain) It was my water softener system. When I finally figured out who to call, she tells me the guy can’t be here until next Tuesday…8 whole days without soft water!! Not sure I’m going to survive. Then she proceeds to tell me that I need to turn the key on the knobs of the unit to bypass the system and stop flooding my neighborhood. There wasn’t a key, so I had to improvise. The lady driving by looked terrified when she saw me walking around the corner of my house carrying these tools. I really wished I would have had a martini to put in these glasses instead of pudding.
