On a normal day Jacob would have been home by now and I would be starting dinner. Normal is a word that hasn't been used often in our house these days. I pulled the crock pot out this morning and made a huge pot of the Pioneer Woman's beans. They have smelled so good all day. I was going to make some of her corn bread to go with them. This was my plan and everything was falling into place until the sink clogged up right at 3:20. The garbage disposal burped and coughed and then the sink began to fill with water. I tried the plunger -- it didn't work. I took the boys to the store after I picked up Alex from school and bought two containers of Drain-O -- one for each sink in the kitchen. I waited 15 minutes like it told me to -- Nothing. I can't wash dishes and I can't use my dishwasher. So, to prevent dirtying anymore dishes Jacob volunteered to get dinner. The annoying problem has been announced and we're hoping to be graced by the presence of a plumber tomorrow who can fix this problem.
As always -- I'll keep you posted. ;)
