Nice things-- why we cannot haz?

So, it's my second weekend of working an additional day, thanks to management planning screw-ups at the office. I was at it late last night (after a day of uncooperative equipment and wasted time), then we did housecleaning because my son wanted to host a "deco" (decorating) party for a school event. We did one last November, in which teenagers were in and out of the house for about 6 hours.

For HalfshellHusband and me, being introverts, that is basically a distinct and prolonged version of Hell.

So, today's party was to mostly be outside, since the weather is good and painting will be happening. At ten minutes to FPKAT (First Potential Kid Arrival Time), we had a plumbing event.

I.e., water started burbling up out of the toilets, bathtub, and shower because the outtake to the main sewer line suddenly became clogged. Well, not JUST water. /o\

So we are now hosting an event from 11-4pm in which nobody can use the bathrooms. At least there's a public park with bathrooms about 3 blocks away, but still.

Because, you know, the day wasn't fun enough already. :(
