And the bathroom faucet is leaking so bad that there is a constant puddle right in front of the bath tub. 3 soaked towels (anyone who has to do lots of laundry knows how precious dry clean towels are) later and I finally figured out that it wasn't just the kids being crazy in the bathroom when I wasn't looking. The puddle is a permanent fixture for the time being. I strongly dislike wasting so much water but there is no quick fix.

I can't solve those problems. Most likely we will call in outside help and most likely, knowing us, it will be several more days until we even do that.
You might remember the post some time ago about my online grocery ordering debacle (skip all the other incoherent dribble and go straight to the picture). It would seem that though I was pretty peeved with myself at that point in time it might not have made the impression we were all hoping for. Fast forward a few months... to this week...
I was in the bakery section (on the computer - the bakery section ONLINE - that's important to remember) and came across some delightful little rolls. Good for sandwiches or just butter and jam. Quite popular with the kids. So I bought 8.
8 = 1 meal for our family.
What arrived from the grocer was this...
|That's coffee, old hamburger buns, a math workbook, a bitten into apple, some aging bananas and a pair of baby socks, taking up my precious counter space. Oh yeah, and 8 LOAVES OF BREAD|
Because 8 LOAVES OF BREAD is different from 8 SANDWICH ROLLS. In my defense all the loaves of bread look exactly the same size on the screen and I just wasn't paying attention to the price, plus, I had a few distractions. This sometimes happens when ordering online. And it will probably happen again. Oh, how we laugh and laugh...
So, I quickly finished panicking about what I was going to be doing with all of the bread and planned a few homemade pizzas and some bread pudding.
No outside help needed. ;) (bread pudding not pictured )
And for dessert... (from our garden...the basket used to be full)
