happy new year! take a bunch of money!

So, the plumber showed up this morning. And the way to start the New Year right is to spend over $500 before noon. On plumbing. I mean, it's a good thing to be able to take a shower without actual shit coming up out of the drain, but I'd rather spend $500 on something a lot more fun than a length of PVC pipe.

And the news just keeps getting better. We get to donate a few more thousand dollars to the cause of plumbing, probably in the next 2 weeks. Whee.

At least the plumbers are having a good start to the year, I guess.

We rang in the the year the same way - plumber hasn't gotten here just yet, but our toilet is clogged beyond recognition!

Heh. I think it's a New Year's thing. Some other people are also having plumbing problems. We were secretly hoping it was a Lego or something. But no. Ah, well.
