There's a Reason for Everything aka God has a Wicked Sense of Humor




HolaHolaHola My Beautifuls!  Do you remember last month when Even BB Gets the Blues was posted? Bueno, a couple of days afterwards the plumber came and fixed the backed up kitchen sink.  You know Babushka's first words? "Oh thank goodness, now I can really wash dishes!"  Quee? After 6 months of doing the dishes with buckets- so I wouldn't have to siphon out the water from a clogged drain, I was truly grateful that a sink filled with dirty dishes could now be done in 15 minutes instead of 3 hours. Y no, not being Cuban here, I literally was using a baster to remove the backed up water. My reaction though logical and heartfelt was admittedly a surprise and I had to chuckle- looking forward to cleaning?  BB?

Next came the shut off of water. It would cost $450 to fix the DIY mishap Sweetie had trying to change the leaky shower washer.  Needless to say we couldn't leave the leak running as it had now started going into the bedroom and soaked the carpet. Also needless to say is that we couldn't afford to fix it right then, so off came the water.  After the initial shock we realized in the long run maybe this would lower our monthly utitility bill.  The water pump (yes, Babushka's so rural I have a well) apparently was going non stop because of the leak and the electric bill was unreal. So maybe this was a blessing in disguise.

Two weeks ago we were able to get the plumber back out here, so now we have water!! The kitchen has now sparkled for a time, but the rest of the house... You know us bloggers, addicts to the www.com.  Everytime I would schedule to do something the click notifying me of Feibu or Tweety would lure me back to the screen. At the end of the day I would lament  how I really hadn't done a thing towards housecleaning.  Apparently the angels took pity on me and cut off my internet.

I now use the library for internet access with a self imposed 2 hour limit and on Sunday nights go to Sweetie's to use his because the library is closed on Mondays. Of course if there are Tweety Fiestas I go to his house to participate and then go back home. And I don't intend on reconnecting my internet anytime in the near future, so there really are no excuses for a messy home.

It's been almost two weeks since the distraction of Feibu and Tweety and Babushka's gathering strength and impulso to commence cleaning. 
Quee?? You thought BB's house would be clean by now?

JU SO FONII!!!
