Crack – Not the kind you smoke, the kind that’s showing up all over what’s left of my sanity

Today hasn’t been going so smoothly for me.  After sleeping in the couch last night because the lotion I had used was hurting Lizze’s head, she let me go back to bed until almost lunchtime. 
That was totally cool of her and I’m very grateful.  It may not seem like much to some people but for Lizze, that wasn’t easy. 
As soon as I wake up, I’m greeted by a clogged toilet and a broken plunger.  Once again the clogger has struck again.  It’s the kind of clog that can’t be easily plunged, even with a plunger that’s not broken. 


The last time it literally took me about 6 hours worth of plunging until my hands hurt too bad to continue, taking a break and getting back too it before it finally flushed. 

Of course no one claims responsibiltiy for this but I know who it is.  It’s always the same person and it’s because they seem to have no concept of what can and cannot be flushed successfully down the toilet. 

It always happens in the middle of the night and is left like present for whoever needs to use the bathroom in the morning. It’s like a cat killing a bird and leaving on your doorstep as a gift.

Lizze’s Mom came and picked up the boys and brought a brand new plunger because we are without a car still and couldn’t get to the store. 

Lizze was definitely on her game today and we are both grateful for the break, even if that break is spent fixing the goddamn toilet again…… 🙁

Please don’t get me wrong, I’m grateful that everyone in our house is potty trained but at the same time, I’m so tired of having to do this as often as I find myself doing this.  It’s exhausting, frustrating, painful and gross. 

I’ve taken a break from the plunging and looked in the mirror.  I swear I can see cracks forming all over me.  It’s like I’m getting ready to just shatter all over the place..

Sigh…… Time to get back to it…..
