TGIF - hopefully a end to horrible week!

TGIF! I am having one of the worst weeks of my entire life!!! (actually…my whole household is!) So we start out lovely week off with my sister’s family coming to visit and a cookout. It was lots of fun on Saturday. Sunday we thought DH, Me, and Lily Anne would hang out and clean house and make a run to Sam’s for formula (we got there as it was opening for the day…not a lot of people). I even thought I would try to get Lily Anne eating a lunch…so I feed her mangos mixed with rice cereal. She loved it…went down for nap and all is well….. Fast-forward to the evening…Lily Anne now has diarrhea. But just two diapers of it. I thought nothing of it ….maybe because of a diet change (adding lunch). All went to bed normally.

Monday…normal morning…except I noticed that when DH was taking his shower our toilet bubbled. I chuckled and told DH about it. We have had a lot of rain lately and we are on city sewage. DH thought maybe air in the line. Nothing more came of it. So…Lily Anne is up. DH goes to feed except she would only take 2oz of her bottle. I said no worries, I will feed her cereal and tell Mr. Brown at daycare. They can adjust her schedule when she gets the 1st bottle. Fast-forward….I pick her up and noticed that she did not nap a lot and she drank all her bottles. So I thought I was in for acranky tired baby evening. Well, dinner I pulled out squash and pears. (LA’s 2 favs!). OH NO…Lily Anne had a meltdown. Okay…I give up. Bath, bottle, and bed. Only to wake up and hour later….re-rocked her and sounded like a beginning of a cold coming and so we get ready for bed. I use the bathroom..Just pee …ladies (THANKGOD!!)…and the toilet would not flush. Yelling for DH …the plunger would not do anything. So DH said leave it and I will call a plumber tomorrow 1st thing. We have 3 other bathrooms..not no biggy ……if I only knew!
Well…to only be woken up at 1 am by DH puking! OMG. Seriously??? So he spends the rest night on the couch and trashcan….Now to make this nasty and completely a horrible situation…we have no working toilets at this time. None of them would flush!!

Tuesday: So the plumber comes out thinks he knows the problem. Our access point to the city sewage line was broken and clogged. In the meantime I am on my way home from work sick now myself. LA at daycare – healthy. So they got the toilet temporarily working for us. And DH goes to get LA…now two sick parents trying to take care of one semi-healthy child. (just runny nose…that is the typical lately)

Wednesday…they dig a nice 9.5 foot hole in my front yard…to find that it is not our pipe..but the cities. Well the city came out and said not their problem. WHAT! The pipe has your damn name on it. Okay so now we are talking the possibility of having to dig up some of our street.. WTH does that cost. OKAY ..>DEAR GOD, I know I have been a little off the past months…but I need a serious break.

So DH and I pick up LA and the plumbers were filling the whole. They fixed it YEAH and without having to tear the road up. Thank you! Well $1230.00 later we can take a shower! (A tree root grew inside the pipe…because the original plumber who plumed the house did not seal the pipe and a little root became a huge root) …..So Lily Anne did not do well with bottles at daycare and horrible at dinner. We gave her a bath and attempted the bottle to which she threw up. She was up every hour..

Have our horrible night DH stayed how with her. Maybe to get her back on a schedule again…wellwhich only ended in my calling on my way home …to be ask to meet him at the DR office. Lily Anne is a proud owner of another ear infection = okay..repeat. I can handle this. Over and over in my head.. Only to come home and fine my REFRIG is BROKEN! WTF!!! God do you think I can handle another damn thing going on in my life right now. I am on a serious verge of a huge breakdown. My refrig 3 years old GE Profile, and My house 6 years old. WTH!!!!

If you even made it through this to now Holy Hell you are one champ.

PS….I just feed LA breakfast which she ate ½ of …but I saw she is getting her first tooth…just breaking through!! Wonderful! And to my on going rambling. Here are some photos of our lovely ROOT!!!
