Friday was great. No major problems with the kids at school beyond the usual. Duncan got through his Tae Kwon Do testing for his red belt. He was a tad slow in his forms but unlike some of the faster kids he did the forms Master Lee called for correctly. He did well on his sparring and should get his belt on Monday. Next up after that one is red belt with a black stripe, then black belt. I told him he'd better be spot on when it comes time for his black belt test because at almost $500 I would *really* want him to pass.
Today hasn't been that great. I woke up this morning with horrible congestion. Took something for it but it's only working so-so. Also our tub has been draining slowly for about a week now and Friday mom noticed when you flushed the toilet it burbled up in the tub. Not good. We didn't call the plumber then (stupid, I know) and now the toilet and the tub are draining ultra slow. So slow that I couldn't take a shower this morning nor could I get the toilet to flush.
Mike made a trip to the Home Depot to pick up a snake and came back to mess with the plumbing. I went back to bed because my head felt like it was full of bricks. After snaking he got things to drain a little better but the 25 feet of snake wasn't enough.
He's gone back to the HD to see what he can rent and perhaps get us through the weekend. I think we're still going to have the plumber in to snake the line from the top of the house. We had to have that done last year and it's probably about time to have it done again. Hopefully that will fix the draining problems at least for another year.
In the meantime, my sinuses are sucking all motivation out of me and I just want to curl up and sleep. Too much to do here, however, so I'll make myself salvage something out of this Saturday. Bleh.
