Ok, so this blog may disgust, disturb, frighten, or cause many of you guys feel uneasy, however, I post it out of blog honesty, and in order to liven up this nearly dead blog (only NEARLY due to Sam's new entry.)
And the story goes....
My in-laws are coming in from out of town. In total, we will have 8 extra people in our house. Now, to me that doesn't seem like a huge number. But what did feel a little overwhelming is that 6 of them are spending the nights upstairs. Unfortunately, the only bathroom upstairs is in my bedroom, which during the night will be off limits. This is not only because it is MY bedroom but also because all 3 of my children will be sleeping there as well. This means that any upstairs visitors who happen to need a bathroom in the wee hours of the morning will have to undertake the aurduous journey down the stairs, through the family room, around the coat closet, up the hall, and into the family bathroom on the main floor. For me that is asking a bit much! So, we decided to finish the half bath which we have been using as a closet for the last 18 months. (Can we say it's finally time?)
To make a long story short. There was already a toilet hooked up in this closet/half bathroom, which we drained and moved into a corner of the hallway. Hey, it is going back in tomorrow after all right. To make a long story even shorter.....well, one of the kids didn't quite understand that this toilet is "out of order" and decided to use it several times! NASTY! I only figured it out after searching hi and low for where the incredible stench in my hallway was coming from! When I finally dared peek in the toilet I was accosted by complete grossness! If this wasn't bad enough Brent is camping for the night. Luckily, somehow all the yucky contents seem to be contained.
Currently my mother in law is at the store buying kitty litter in order to help out our situation but seriously people, I am so grossed out I can barely stand it. All I can say is wish me luck....lots and lots of luck (until Brent can completely take care of this particular problem.)
