Gross. But funny.
Score! I made it to work today on time despite the fact that I had to climb into the attic and empty the sled before I showered. Oh - and the roasting pan. Yep, found another leak last night
when I was up there emptying the sled before bed.
We had tornadoes in the area last night. Bunches of people had their power knocked out, trees landed on cars and roofs were ripped off. And I was in my attic dipping a sponge into the water sitting in a pink sled and squeezing the water into a bucket.
"Mom! You can't go into the attic when there's a tornado warning!"
The rain had slowed for the moment, there was a lot of lightning but c'mon - it was time for bed.
So you know of course that once I got down from the attic, emptied the bucket and pushed the
ladder back up into it's space, it started to rain and storm again. Groan...!
I was afraid that when I went to bed I would worry about the water and would have trouble
sleeping. Uh .. nope. Slept like a baby. Got up this morning and did the process over again.
It was supposed to rain today but it hasn't done it yet. I'm sure it will start to hail right before bed or something.
Told my boss about getting up in the attic before I showered this morning and he said "Why take a shower? Just go stand in the closet!
I told him he was funny. Gross. But funny.
