THE TWINS STRIKE AGAIN
What do 100 bucks and a hole in the ground have in common?? Twins is what they have in common. The twins, in all their creative glory, thought it would be best to put rocks down a hole in the front yard. When I caught them I of course told them to stop, thinking it was only a hole for watering the plants. And since first time obedience seems only to be a pipe (no pun intended) dream in our house, they absolutely went back for more rock fun. Little did I know that they were putting rocks down the sewage system for the entire house and the casita.
So a few days later, when Dena and her family were scheduled to arrive, we noticed that all the bathrooms had overflowed. After further investigation Rob came inside and said "apparently someone's been putting rocks down the pipe," to which I replied "oh yeah." He said, "what do you mean, oh yeah?" And the rest is history. Praise Jesus for Saturday plumbers!! We didn't have to have the entire yard dug up as we first thought and we are all extra thankful to be able to use our toilets despite the twins' rock extravaganza. Just so you don't worry about our potty situation, Rob has taken extra precaution in securing the hole with plaster, zip-ties, and super glue.
