Under construction

On the afternoon of January 8th, a certain 3 year old in our house flushed an unknown item down our toilet on the second floor. Said item caused much blockage, and the toilet ran, unchecked, for the better part of thirty minutes flooding the bathroom, the kitchen, our first floor bath, and causing thousands of dollars worth of damage.
Fast forward to last week, and we’re ripping out walls and discovering black mold and all sorts of stuff. Life has NOT been good here in JH2D land. It’s been chaotic and dust-covered. Beer and alcohol consumption is at an all-time high and tempers are flaring.
Soon, however, we will be back to normal, whatever that is, and the posts will resume with some regularity. Right now, it’s all I can do not to run screaming from the house.


  1. ARGH! Continuing to wish you the best...

  2. Blimey! What a revoltin' development this is!!! Ah, brings back memories of #2 child flushing a G I Joe Action figure down the commode. Fortunately, I caught it before the flood. But taking up the commode and having to reach up into it from the bottom...YUCK!
    He was about 3 then, too. He had laid the figure on the back tank while he used the potty..."And Daddy, it just fell in."
    Keep on keeping on. Let us know how things go!

  3. I stop by regularly; I wait with the porch light on....

  4. Ugh. I *hate* the process of home repair. Hate it. I'm so sorry!
    Hope it is over soon and that the booze helps.
