Last night I came home around seven and the sink was making a funny gurgling noise. I looked in it, I ran the garbage disposal, no problemo.

Around 10, I watched the much-awaited Downton Abbey that I'd recorded. At midnight, I took my little stockinged feet down the hall and -- SQUISH!!!! There was 1.5 inches of standing water...on my carpet.

My daughter once said, "The smell of Lysol reminds me of my childhood."

Yes; and make sure the panties are clean ...

Hey; I just remembered I am a germa-phob (sp)... when I was married to ex there were times when there were his four kids and my son in the house all at once especially in summer.. Well? I would wash everything down with alcohol all day long on everything.

If they are only wearing your panties on their heads, then you won't have to worry (sorry!)

We all have our precious pieces thats for sure. I have an awesome collection of Waterford crystal, it is all packed away now and won't be displayed for a very long time, I simply don;t have room. The hideously ugly antique china and silver can stay packed away until I can give it to DD, then it is HER problem.

oh; good idea.. couldnt DD stay there while you are gone?

I would be a bit anxious too about the stuff.. Can you put things away somewhere else behind a locked closed closet or door?

the most valuable precious thing I own right now are a set of LLADRO elephants.. Mama, Papa and baby.. I got that piece in Spain and it remains at my ex marital home with ex because I have no safe place to put it.. THe piece was 1,000 ..Not much to some people but hey it came all the over from Spain..

One day I went back to the house and the piece was missing.. Ex has a lot of grand kids so he put the piece away high on a shelf in the closet.. Thank God

do you have anyone that could "apartment sit" while the work is being done, just so they know someone is watching them?

I would be happy to volunteer, but I can;t get there that fast :P
