On Saturday afternoon there was the WOOLF meeting. Half the members were not there, probably due to Pantheon Leather Awards. Later on we found out that WOOLF won an award for Best new/small organization. After the meeting I went home and finished up a few items I had been working on. About 11 pm we headed out, there was a Mardi Gras party at the OtherSide. It was lots of fun. Good(80's) music, good(cheap) drinks and GOOD Friends!
Sunday was Chinese New Year! All was going good it was a 3 day weekend, I have partied for two days and was in a meeting for the Pagan Mens Group.
Then my phone rings and little did I know that this going to ruin the rest of the weekend. Rex called and said, "stop at the hardware store and get some more of that pipe, the leak is back. I get home and there is water all over the basement. The sewer was clogged and the washer would not drain. "Stand back, I have a snake and I know how to use it!" I snaked and I snaked and I snaked, but to no avail. There must be roots in the sewer line. It has been 5 years since the last time that we had the line cleaned out, I guess it was about time. I called Reddi Rooter. They said that they could have a technician to the house between 7 and 9 pm and that they would call before they headed our way. I waited, and waited and waited..... Finally at 4:30 in the morning I went to bed. You kind of loose track of time when you are on the computer.
I woke up Monday morning at 11 and thought I will call the rooter people. When I picked up the phone there was no dial tone. "Fuck! has the phone been off the hook all night?" I checked all the extensions and none were off the hook. Rex used his cell to call the house number and there was some message about due to phone company problems..... So, I called Cox and they said that they would send someone out. Now I have to wait on another technician. I called the rooter people with the cell phone and they said that they did not get an answer when they call so they canceled the appointment.
I guess there was a good side to being stuck at the house waiting for Reddi Rooter and Cox Communications to show up. I spent the whole time on the computer working on embroidery designs.
I got these two crosses done for my friend in San Antonio that make vestments and then the one for the Wichita Bears that I have been promising them for about 2 years now.
