Peace and Quiet and Sewage

Ah. Peace and quiet.

We reveled in it this weekend, thanks to the best Christmas gift ever: a whole night of babysitting. (Thanks Sarah and Dustin. Glad the Lillputians didn't take you down.)

Jeff and I escaped yesterday afternoon to check into a hotel and soak in the hot tub before heading out for an evening of fun at our multiples club's holiday party. We stayed out well past our bedtime, knowing there would be no 6 a.m. (or earlier!) wakeup call from the kids. Then we slept soundly and much later than usual since there were no cries of "Paci!" in the wee hours.


At least until the late-morning call came that sewage was backing up through one of our toilets.

Hallmark doesn't make a card that says "Thanks for watching the kids. Sorry about the toilet."

But that's life, right?

Sometimes sewage happens.

You can get upset about it, or just mop it up and move on.

We chose the latter.

Though I did feel a little bit bad since the kids slept all night, but Sarah and Dustin were up tending an overflowing toilet.

That wasn't what I meant when I told them we were still doing a little potty training.

LOL I'm sorry for laughing. Good thing your kids are adorable, or you'd be hard-pressed to find someone willing to babysit again!
