This by far was the best 4th of July that I can remember!! The weather was perfect! We started the day with a good service at church. Then helped my mom get ready for her 4th party.... one of my famous minute to win it parties, then off to the lake.
We went out on the boat with my sister and ate some wonderful food. We had the best catfish in the world... so good I even ate it. I swear it was caught, battered, and fried up all in about 1 hour. Thank goodness for un-incorporated areas because we got to shot off tons of fireworks! The girls had a blast (oh Eric had even more fun) then we went back out on the boat to watch fireworks from the water.
It was spectacular and the kids had so much fun!

well... time to start a log for the fun we are about to start.
Day 1: Morgan banged on the kitchen window yelling in that it stunk outside and she didn't even fart. Upon going outside we discover a smelly swampy mess on the side of the house. I immediately call the plumber and Eric and I start shoveling s***. More specifically, anything that I had put down my garbage disposal over the past few weeks.
Day 2: Plumber arrives.... 5 minutes and $125 later plumber stops and says it is a sewer line break and to call a plumber (seriously that is what he said). My sphincter muscle then tightens. He also mentions I might want to call my homeowners insurance. Check and check. Lengthy conversation with our insurance agent my sphincter muscle relaxes. I call my hubby at work and tell him the news. Based upon the plumber's estimation that the problem was 12-14 feet from the clean out drain access point we place bets on where the leak is.
Day 3: Real plumber arrives. My dad also comes over... we won't go into why... but I am grateful for all of his help! The plumber pulls out some cool tools and tells us the good news... the leak is right under the wall in our newly redecorated office (um, the good news part... that was sarcasm). I call and tell Eric the good news... he won the bet. The plumber then moves to the drains on the other side of the house...sphincter muscle workout begins again. My dad chimes in... "I have been thinking there were problems on this side too." Really?? Huh. The diagnosis on that side is good... no leaks. Then go inside and the plumber starts asking me if I have extra tiles for the kitchen... and the entry way.
This is going to be interesting!! We are now taking bets on how may feet of pipe will be replaced and which direction the pipe is laid... will it be going into the living room?? the entry way?? will the take the cabinets out??
