If, by rest, you mean get up, get the children ready for school, take them to school, walk dog, start to cook gumbo, go to hospital to help mama-in-law get discharged and take her home, get to her home, find papa-in-law unable to walk with a very swollen ankle, figure out makeshift ice packs for him, go get lunch for both of them, then come home, finish cooking gumbo, and feed the tank. I really don’t understand why I’m always tired, do you? 😛
Grumble grumble grumble ROAR. I hurt my back on Sunday evening, it’s definitely improving, but still. How did I hurt it, you ask? Unclogging the toilet, of course. A regular activity that all of my city friends engage in. I want to know, does everyone in the world have these ridiculous low flush toilets, or is it just in NYC apartments? Mama is all for saving the earth, conserving energy, conserving water, etc, but shouldn’t the toilets still work? How much more water is being used by pouring it down toilets to unclog them by shaving a few gallons off of the regular flush?
Between the weather, the toilets, and a cost of living so high I’ve practically got the kids counting out the Cheerios into the bowl to make the box last longer, Mama is feeling very, very done with this city. New York state of mind my patootie!
