the little things

My floor is wet. That's almost never good. We have two floors that have been periodically getting wet for a while now. One gets wet from a leaking roof and the other gets wet from a leaking toilet.

I've always hated the word toilet. I'm also not fond of the word entrepreneur or the phrase, "what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas"

I've installed and fixed our toilet three times now. Each time it's water tight...for a while.

So the next time I "fix" it and reinstall it I should probably fix our fake Pergo floors.

Lately these little annoyances are driving me batty (yup, I said batty). They're like the paper cut that you can't stop focusing on. These are the silly little things that are actually really big things because they can distract you from real life...the stuff that matters.

I know this and yet I still let it get to me.

Don't even get me started on the lawn...


  1. You hate the word toilet? Trust me its better than the word commode which my mother still uses regularly - and it still irrates the heck out of my brother! (hee-hee!)

    You know what I don't get is the word 'rest room' for toilet?


  3. It's the only room in the house where no one can bother you...hence, rest room.
