    I'm promised civilization by Tuesday, but it will be some random Tuesday (Random Tuesday Thoughts)


    Oh, hai. It's Tuesday. Well, actually, for me, it's Monday, and not even the 'close enough to Tuesday' time of day that I usually write these posts, it's Monday afternoon. I have something going on later. YOU PEOPLE DON'T OWN ME.

    I feel weird, though, blogging in the middle of the afternoon. I mean, when I'm not at work.



    In addition to all the spiralling out of control that the bathroom renos are doing, on Saturday the drywall dust, combined with the massive amounts of water we were running through the plumbing to ensure none of the new fixtures leaked, made the sewer back up. So we abandoned ship and went out to stay at my parents Ranch, where we could flush and wash in relative leisure.

    Well, by "we" I mean "my son and I". I left hubby behind to deal with Roto Rooter and the lingering stench. Some things are just "blue" jobs, y'know? Heh.

    There is wi-fi out at the Ranch now. But there is also this pervasive sense of serenity and quiet, that makes me want to take long walks and then nap afterwards.

    And think about zombie apocalypse survival. Here's a flow chart.

    After the sewer backed up the first time, I soaked everything (mostly water)(well, stinky water) up with towels and threw them in the washing machine. Then I ran the washing machine.

    Because I am SMRT.

    Obviously, the sewer backed up again (mostly water)(still stinky) when the washing machine drained and I was left with sopping wet towels and no way of absorbing the new overflow. Until my eye lit on a bag of left over newborn-sized diapers.

    I am fucking MACGUYVER, you guys. And diapers are frighteningly absorbent. I shudder to think what would happen if an ocean liner full of Pampers capsized.

    Bruce Wayne has disappeared, but he's not dead. He's just been busy honing his lightsaber skills. Underwater, even.

    I wish I could win the lottery so I could build my own serene Ranch. About a million would do it. And another million to soundproof the toddler.

    Do you ever not check your lottery ticket because you want to spend more time imagining that you might have actually won?

    I feel like napping. Everybody else is napping. I should be napping. You should be napping, too! I hereby declare a group nap!

    Oh, well, wait. You need to write a random post first. And grab your button and link up. THEN you can nap.

    (I'll be over here. Getting a head start.)

    (I really wish I had the power to declare Group Nap.)

    They only thing you can count on with a home remold project is that it will go crazy wrong.

    I hope things get under control again soon.

    Enjoy your nap.

    I am down with the group nap. Count me in. Can we make this a daily thing?

    March 23, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMissy

    You have the power! This is your blog! If you call group nap, then so be it. G'night. (good thing I'm not at work

    March 23, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterCollette

    Pampers, now that's a genius idea! I'm all about getting a nap. I look forward to getting about an hour nap daily. It's almost a daily part of my routine.
    Happy RTT.

    Group nap would be awesome. I think everyone deserves at least one hour out of their busy day to devote to napping!

    March 23, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterTori

    Holy crap Keely, a group nap? Brilliant! Do you have any way of guaranteeing that my kids will go along with it?

    Let me know when you build that ranch, I'm in. I'll even bring some ranch dressing. Actually, any sort of dressing consumed on a ranch would automatically be "ranch" dressing, no?

    Group nap? No problem....zzzzz

    Happy RTT

    Ahhhh, group nap. Even at 6:30am that sounds like a good idea.

    March 23, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJennifer

    I am in with the nap!!! The ranch sounds wonderful! I will take one of those too!
    Happy RTT

    Batman v. Darth Vader totally blew my mind. And I'm not even going to tell you how long I spent reading that zombie flow chart. "You are Marty McFly." "What is this, some kind of hand trolly? Are you serious?" "We don't want zombies on the lawn."

    Bruce Wayne IS very very cool. I wonder if he could help sort out your bathroom.

    March 23, 2010 | Unregistered Commentermo.stoneskin

    I'm a daily napper if at all possible. Makes me a nicer person.

    I do the same thing with my lottery tickets. Might as well extend the dream a little longer.

    Good luck with that bathroom remodel. You will love it when it's done.

    I never check my lotto ticket for that very reason.

    March 23, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSprite's Keeper

    You are the Queen of Randoming!

    Don't even get me started on lottery tickets. Damn.

    I like the group nap thingy. What time (each day) were you thinking. I'm pretty sure you have the power to make it happen. Looks like others agree.

    That zombie chart was exhausting. I need a nap after that.

    March 23, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterShelly

    Count me in for the group nap.

    March 23, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMichele

    I'm in for group nap. Let my boss know why I'm sleeping because that would be great!

    March 23, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterkendrasue

    I never wait to check my tickets. That would allow valuable spending time to elapse.

    March 23, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMiddle Aged Woman

    Wow, I'm impressed!! I can barely hang a picture let alone remodel a bathroom! And the diaper thing? Pure genius!

    I hope you get the bathroom done soon and everything gets back to normal.

    Oh, and count me in for the group nap too. I've been exhausted.

    Happy RTT!

    March 23, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterRaven

    I'm with ya on the naps...... Also the batman pictures were very cool!!! Have a great day. Hope you can sneak a nap in there somewhere!

    March 23, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMelanie

    I wish I could nap ... especially when I've missed sleep at night. Unfortunately the body never cooperates (or perhaps it's the MIND that just won't stop). Best wishes on the continuing repairs.
    Hugs and blessings,

    March 23, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSmall Reflections

    I wish you had that power too! And I love the diapers lol they CAN hold a lot!

    March 23, 2010 | Unregistered Commenter♥ Kathy

    I hereby decalre you powerful enough to declare a group nap! Ha there ya go!

    I like to pretend with the lottery tickets too! if you soundproof the toddler you need to copyright ur technology then share it with me so i can soundproof the 5 year old. Happy RTT!

    I'm fluffing my pillow as we speak. No, that's not a euphemism for anything.

    Backed up sewers are justifiable reasons for getting the flock out of Dodge. Ack. My brain melts every time my toilets overflow. Because sometimes kids flush their underwear.
