an exhausting week
I’m still waiting to find out when my last make-up class will be scheduled. Our gazillion spring holidays managed to almost all fall on the days my classes are scheduled and so, of course, we need to have those classes tacked on at the end of the semester in June. It is putting a spanner in the works of my trying to make travel plans as I really am hoping to fly to the U.S. to see my niece for the very first time (she’s a year and a half old!) when they are there on visit.
Today I’ve got to get an instillator (plumber/handyman) to come in and unclog the main bathroom drain. This is the scupper drain that you use to scupper the water (and massive amounts of cat hair) down when you clean the floors but also the drain for the bathtub (and massive amounts of my hair). Unfortunately, the cats also like to scupper their toys down it. I took a shower at the crack of dawn on Tuesday morning, a nice long and relaxing one, and got out to the most unrelaxing experience possible — half an inch of water all through the living room, into the bedroom, into the kitchen! I had to leave for work with a ton of water still standing on my floors and when I got home from work at 10 on Tuesday night, it was still standing there and it took me hours to get it dried out. I can see a variety of toys (and loads of cat hair) lodged down the drain but can’t reach them. Both the cover and the drain strainer are useless because one of the cats’ favourite games is to pry them off and out and then knock their toys in. Yeah they are minature golf fanatics. I keep the door shut but Puddin’ has figured out how to jump up and hit the handle to open it and so in they go. I don’t understand the fascination with the damn thing. I’ve got to get someone in with a snake to clean it out.
More updates later.
