Air conditioners and toilets

Well, today has been odd and a little frustrating under normal circumstances, but I have not been stressed. That can only be God. I have had to clean out the filters in the air conditioners....and I'm hoping that will stop some of the condensation...in my bedroom. I don't know why, but it started leaking...hopefully this helps.

And I'm convinced that the kids put something foreign in the toilet. I have used the plunger COUNTLESS times today, and I can't get it to go down. Every time they go in there, I feel like the pottie patrol, running to say "Don't flush!!" I'm not sure what they have in there, but it is affecting all the drains in that end of the house...okay, so those are the only drains we have, but still....when you flush or when the washer fills up or when you brush your teeth, other drains gurgle. That didn't happen before.... SOOOO that leads me to believe that one of my aspiring plumbers have fiddled a little too creatively.

Hopefully after Chad gets home today, he can help me out. He called earlier, and I asked him to look at it all when he got home. He said that he would. He surely will either know what to do or be a stronger plunger than I am.

We're not missing a hamster, so I know that can't be what is plugging things up...we aren't missing anything that I know of yet...but Gabriel is getting ornerier and ornerier with each passing day. He could have been sneaky and gotten something in there before any of my other informants could have seen. Drew may not have told me, but Evan and Luke DEFINITELY wouldn't pass up the chance to rat out someone else!

Hopefully things will all get settled this evening, and I won't be afraid to use the sinks and toilets and shower and washer....you can imagine how the day has come to a screeching halt when there are 5 people (4 of which are little boys) that aren't allowed to do much with water....I'm just trying to make sure the problem isn't a big one before I continue with the everyday....

You know Michelle, you would think with having girls that they would stay out of disgusting things like the toilet, but unfortunately that's not true. I don't find things like trucks or hamsters in the toilet, but I do find the occassional hair thingy! :)

Hey, just a thought... With all the former Choralians, are we like tied for who can have the most kids in the shortest amount of time? With the exception of Burke and JoEllen Hummel of course.
