It's been no secret I've loved maxi skirts and dresses this summer. I think I'll get some more mileage out of them into the Fall here because they're long so they keep me warmer! Today I decided to bring out my very favorite maxi and add a long sleeve shirt - and I think it worked out pretty well. I'm comfy and warm. Besides, I needed to wear something for a little pick me up, I'm quite wiped out this morning. Last night was interesting.
I take a bath most evenings to help unwind and relax before bed. I've been doing it since I was young and in fact, if I don't take my bath, my muscles flip out a bit and the Pants Monkey says he thinks I get restless leg syndrome while sleeping, so I try to not skip when I can help it. So last night was no exception. And I'll preface the rest of this story with - my house is old and we haven't done much to update it.
While I run my water I usually play with my iPhone - catching up on FB, Twitter, Words with Friends, Bejeweled, etc. So I'm playing a game and I get a text message. "Hey, it's Quinn." It's a local number, but I think over all the people I've met lately and none of them are a Quinn. So I just deleted and ignored it. I'm nearly done running the water when my phone buzzes again from the same number. "Hello?" Fine. I respond "sorry I think you have the wrong number." By the time I'm done messing around with all of that, my tub is really, REALLY full. But I've filled up pretty full before and the backup drain usually kicks in and sucks a little out so I figured it would be no big deal. Bad judgement call on my part.
I get in and it slops over the edge a bit. Water is all over the bathroom floor. Oops. In my head I say "it's just water, I'll get out in a little bit and towel it up and the Pants Monkey will never have to know!" Well all of a sudden, Mr. Monkey comes flying in, looks at the floor and goes "oh my God." I start promising to clean it up but then he says "no, that's not the problem, water is pouring into the basement." Um, crap. Apparently the seal by the floor and the bathtub is really not good, so when I slopped water over the edge, it drained into the floor and through the ceiling into the basement. Right above his bar. You know, the really nice one he houses his homebrew in? I felt awful and leaped out of the tub, toweled off quickly and threw my pajamas on. By the time I got downstairs though he had more or less cleaned it up and it wasn't as bad as it sounded. It was dripping, not pouring. And everything is fine now. But at that moment, it was not cool. So, I definitely learned a lesson! I should really just blame Quinn for distracting me. Darn you Quinn whoever you are! After that it was a bit hard to fall asleep, hence my saying I'm wiped out today!
Even though I'm tired after work I'm going to meet one of my closest friends for a Zumba class. I've been wanting to try it for awhile now and she has a good place she's been going so I said I'm going with you and then I won't feel so awkward the first time! So that should be interesting!
And before I go I wanted to share a picture of the group from the MN Blogger get together - credit to Megan Bird, she has other photos up on a nice recap over at the two birds blog as well. Click the photo to make bigger and see all the lovely ladies up close. It really was a great time and I can't wait to meet up with all of these gals again! Sounds like it might be sooner rather than later too!
