Sorry I have been absent lately. Working 6 days a week & trying to get things started for the busy season, which this is that for most crafters anyways. I have to make 18 ormanents & 9 pairs of earrings, just for Christmas! Also I signed on at work for the Relay for Life to make a few items to raffle off to help raise money for R4L, one of which I wanted to be done before Christmas, & I also opened my big mouth (big surprise!) and offered to make beaded ribbons to sell for R4L! Can you say spreading too thin?? Yea I know, that is kinda a DUH! thing, just like running outside in a lightening storm with a mallet in 1 hand and a crowbar in another, but that is also a story for another time! LOL
All of that mixed together can cause a bit of stress on a person! Haha Right?!? Well on Saturday after I got off work I decided to clean the bathroom after I got done using it, why not clean it since I was already there, right? After cleaning the toilet & flushing, it didn't go down right, so I look in the tank & check everything there, all good! So I think to myself, "I'll flush again to see if that fixes it. Now let me stop here & say, in hindsight this sounds like a dumb thing to think, but, in my defense, it has worked in the past!! Well it didn't work this time!! I flushed & the toilet overflowed!!! We are all typical people in a crisis or anything that goes wrong our first thought is to drop everything & come running, right? Well, I did just that, I dropped everything!!! Screamed, "OH CRAP the toilets overflowing!!!", which was quickly followed by, "OH CRAP, I dropped the toilet lid into the tub!", which was even quicklyier followed by, "OH CRAP, I BROKE the toilet tank lid!!!!!!"
After the first "OH CRAP" my daughter came running & handed me a towel to clean up the water. During all of this I was thinking, "Thank God I flushed after I went!" LOL Well afterwards, my reaction was really funny & very comical, to say the least. But now that it has been a few days since it happened, I realize how much I used the back lid of the toilet. That is where i lay my phone, my hair clip & my glasses!!! What am I now to do! LOL
It is funny what we miss once it is gone & never seem to think about until we are unable to use or see it. I know this is all about a "thing", it is easily replaceable; like so many "things" in life; but still it is equally missed in life once gone!
Kinda made me think of all the things that we have in this life that we forget about, yet realize after it is gone how treasured it, or they really were! So think about that a bit, the next time you lay your phone on the back of the toilet, or the next time you see a loved one!
Also think about that the next time you have something breakable in your hands & chaos ensues, just remember whatever you do, DON'T THROW IT IN THE BATHTUB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
