    My mom had a sign on the wall that read, “Women’s faults are many/men have but two…/Everything they say/and everything they do.” That’s what these remind me of. ^_^

    • Kids can sure be mercenary. One time I took my daughter, then about ten years old, to do some errands, and she saw something she wanted to buy… but she had left her money at home, so I bought it for her on the understanding that when we got home, she would pay me back. But when the moment of truth came, she attempted to reimburse me only for the price of the item, minus the sales tax. When I said that she should reimburse me for the actual cost of the item to me, which included the sales tax, she frowned and said, “That’s taxation without representation.”

    I say, “We only moved in recently so things are still all over the place”, and yet I notice it’s about the one-year anniversary of us living here. Oops–I’ll find a new excuse!

    • Three years ago the lower level of our house (where all our bedrooms are) was destroyed in a sewer backup, and everything had to be torn out — carpeting, drywall, insulation, baseboards, door frames, etc., etc. — and everything in the lower level that wasn’t destroyed in the flood had to be dragged upstairs and piled up in the living room, taken up to the attic, or hauled out to the garage. We were completely discombobulated for almost two years while we attempted to get the lower level rehabilitated and livable again. Now it’s been more than a year since I lost that excuse for the house being cluttered or disorganized, but I still resort to it all the time. I blame it on my PTSD caused by the sewer backup and the city’s failure to take responsibility for it. 🙂

        That’s terrible. Our main line to the septic is still blocked, resulting in water in the carpeted hallway, and we had the plumber out for $420.00, then later have cleaned it out ourselves more, and are now using a lot of those bacteria-solution things to eat up the goo, and I am still not thrilled with it all. It is discouraging when things that people figured out long ago should be kept separate, like sewage and indoor living space, are not that way. Best wishes getting over your stresses about it, and wish us luck please so it all clears out. Interestingly, the plumber said that the #1 cause of that kind of backup is people using those baby/personal care wipes, even the ones that say they’re okay to flush, because they’re fabric and hence bad to flush. We don’t use them, but the people before us seem to have, since the plumber found some of them stuck in pipes that took a full year to dislodge even with big plumber machines trying to –we simply don’t waste water, and so that can make things slow moving in the system too. Oh well–

        • In our case, the backup was entirely due to negligence on the part of the city, which failed to maintain the sewer system adequately — this despite the fact that we pay large quarterly fees for sewer and water, and very high property taxes (God only knows what they do with all that money). We actually had photographic proof of the city’s negligence, and in theory, we could have sued the city for damages; but as a practical matter, we had almost no chance of winning. The lawyer we engaged explained to us that state law is written in such a way as to make it pretty much impossible to win a case against the city, which is always assumed to have acted in good faith. Even the fact that after the debacle occurred, the city stepped in and did some major repair and maintenance on the system to prevent a recurrence could not be used as proof of negligence. Sigh…

            That’s terrible. Ours started when we had storms a few months back and the water company, which is one guy in Long island and two wells down the street from us which serve maybe 100 local houses, had no running water for about three weeks, due to lack of maintenance on their system–everyone other than the unfortunate 100 else had water, electricity, everything restored within a couple of days. That seemed to make a lot of trouble for our hot-water heating (we had no heat) and the plumbing. It’s too bad that those responsible for system don’t always do their best, for various reasons.

  10. If I haven’t learned by now not to drink coffee while reading your posts (or at least not wear a white shirt while doing so) I guess there is no hope by now. Spewing indeed!
