Another big shout out to Hillary over at The Other Mama. It’s another Friday Favorites Blog Carnival, and even though I’m a few days past Friday, I’m going to back-date this post and toss my name into the carnival. Hop over there and visit the other participants!
First, Spring Break. I miss this wonderful academic tradition. Sure, my kids are off of school, but my employer just doesn’t see the logic in letting us have a week off for free. In fact, there were several meetings scheduled for earlier in the week, as well as a submittal deadline on Wednesday morning. My husband and I both take off of work on Wednesday afternoon, because we need to tackle…
… the plumbing problems. We have two toilets that need to be reset with new wax seals. Ugh. Not a fun job, but really simple enough to do ourselves. You just have to be very careful not to drop the very heavy porcelain toilet, or it will break. Then, we have a leaky shower. Not the shower head or the valve; no, I mean a leak where the shower pan beneath the floor is cracked and water has been seeping out, soaking the carpet. filling the crawlspace beneath the whirlpool with mold and soaking up into the wallboard. THAT kind of leak. Grrrr. Then, husband’s work calls him, my work calls me and everything becomes an emergency, while we’re in the middle of trying to FIX our plumbing problems. We get off the phones, my husband looks at me and says “Let’s Run Away!”.
After spelunking, we hopped down to San Antonio for a stroll through the Alamo and dinner on the Riverwalk at Zuma’s. (Black bean salsa! Blue corn and chicken nachos!) The only sad thing was that we all came home with colds, all six of us. Eh! It was worth it…

I love it! That's wonderful!I hope the leak and the potty were all put back together magically when you returned. Maybe the bats did it?
Sounds like you had a fantastic week, even with the plumbing problems. I love doing spontaneous things like. Sadly, I hardly ever do it.
Fairy Castles….. NEAT!
Awww, sweet! I think this is the first photo I've seen of you!
