Hi Taz
Wow! I bet you are really in the dog house, which is not a good place for a bird to be. I have done some numbers on my mom, especially lately because I am all hormonal (it's spring in Africa after all), but you really take the prize, and I don't mean that in a good way. You will have a lot of making up to do, my friend.
As I told Napoleon you are all signed up to play football, and I am really hoping I get some of your flock on my team. You are all really good athletes, although I should point out to you that biting is a foul.
My mom can relate to your mom's bad day. Mom had the worst weekend ever! Last night she decided to call the cable company because the DVR had been acting up. The tech tried to walk her through a reset, but it wouldn't work; in fact, the DVR quit working completely. So he set up an appt for a tech to come to the house today betweeen 9 & 10, which was perfect because Mom could still go to the gym.
Then this morning while Mom and I were washing and refilling my water bowl at the kitchen sink, Mom looked out the window and there was water pouring down the sidewalk towards the street. She told Dad and he made her put me back in my room so he could come through (didn't want me to attack him, you know) and go out to turn off the water at the main valve. Mom really quickly used the toilet before the water was gone, and the arm inside the toilet that pulls the chain up and down snapped in two!! (Thank goodness that is something Dad can fix.) Well, Dad called the 24 hr outdoor plumbing repair guy they have used before, and he showed up in about 30 minutes! The galvanized pipe from the old sprinklers to the hose bib on the corner had burst. Mom and Dad had planned on replacing that pipe next Spring, but this had to be dealt with now. So he cut and capped it, which put a temp fix on it which should hold till Spring.
But then the cable company called, and their guy was running late. Dad told Mom to go ahead to the gym, although he knows nothing about the DVR or the cable box. When Mom got home he said two guys had shown up, one after the other so they swapped the box out and replaced some old cables and said it would take about 45 minutes for the new box to load. Mom got home 90 minutes later, and it still wasn't finished loading. (Still not done 3 hours later.) Mom called and they tried to juice it from the hub, but no go. So now they have another tech coming tomorrow afternoon. Not a good weekend, but if bad things come in threes, we got them all done in 24 hours. Guess that's the right way to look at it!
