Bloggin' BFFs and a Bathroom Story

A couple of weeks ago, I had the opportunity to meet a good friend of mine. Yeah, she is my good friend but we had never actually met! We went to lunch had a great time eating salads, talking, laughing, laughing some more, and we even had cheesecake under peer pressure. You know, "I'll have a piece if you do," and "I'll have a piece if you don't tell anyone I ate the whole thing by myself and licked my plate in public."

This is Lisa from Blue and Shoe, KyAnn from Checketts-Myers Clan and this is a rare photo of me. You know how much I love to get my photo taken. Lisa and KyAnn, you may notice a little Photoshop enhancement, erasing of any food particles still left on our face, removal of double chins and I gave myself a breast augmentation. Eh hem. There's only so much you can do in Photoshop when you start with a picture from a cheap camera with bad restaurant lighting.

I missed the other "Blog Friends" get together that KyAnn got to go to because I go to school on Thursday nights. I'm considering changing my night to Monday night. It seems I am missing a lot of things on Thursdays. I cried on Sunday because I'm missing Mimi's "Back-to-School" Fashion Show with the church activity days for girls age 8-11.

On another note, we had an emergency here tonight. For friends on Facebook who watched the drama unfold, you know I can't pass up a good toilet story. I will spare you the photos for this one......and I actually spared myself. There are no photos. It was almost as bad as this time.

Ali came upstairs and complained that the toilet was clogged in the basement. Jared went down and checked it out. He then proceeded to yell at Seth who I guess didn't feel like doing anything about it. I was upstairs in my room listening to the yelling that went on for about ten minutes. I found it a little humorous that they were having such a huge fight over a clogged toilet. We all know, Dr. Phil, that it's not about the clogged toilet. It's about the owner of the "problem" that won't accept responsibility. It's about adding more fiber to some one's food.

Then Ali tells me it's been like that since Sunday. That is wrong on so many levels. But I thought it was kind of funny. So my husband had to run to the hardware store to buy a "power plunger." This was one stubborn obstruction. Jared said he was going to go back to the hardware store to buy a snake. Mimi thought she was going to get a new pet. I downloaded a video so you can learn to use a Plumber's Snake, not a Toilet Snake like I was calling it. The toilet snake may be part of the problem. I was hoping to see more action in this video. I'm thinking when Jared uses the toilet snake I better get it on video. Maybe I'll even have a go with this little beauty!




Anyway, you can call off the exorcism now. Satan has fallen out of someone's bottom.

I discovered the hard way thay you shouldn't flush down tampons. We actually had to have a plumber remove the toilet. I still do it anway. Sigh.

And yay for meeting blog friends!

Too funny Krista! I've seen the miracle of the Plumber Snake used at my Casa to many times.
However it is all still funny when you have to get the big guns outs...exspecially when no one claims the mess they left. A simple note, or a text message on my phone is fine too from the invisible person who left said mess. Luckliy my son Logan is a Plumber as well...so I'm sitting pretty on my throne. I keep my bedroom door locked so the kids don't leave a mess in my throne.
Love you girl.

First of all - LOVE that you got to meet and eat with Lisa and Kyann - both have such great blogs and seem like funny ladies. Kyann is taller than I thought she would be. You are ALL beautiful!! I think it is so fun to meet blog friends - Good stuff!

As for the toilet - UGH! I once had to snake a toilet - similar situation - when my husband was out of town. It was THE sickest thing ever!!!!

Holly said...

Awww... I think the pic is GREAT!!

Our 13 yr old has some major toilet clogging problems and OF COURSE it's NEVER HIM... *sigh* When our daughter and her husband kept him while we were on a trip, DD had to call laughing and said that her hubby was TRYING to unclog the monstrosity and said it was enough to make a grown man CRY!! GAH!! Thank goodness they didn't do any phone pics texted over to make us SHARE the experience. LOL!!

Well, think of it as how NOW you have the equipment to handle the NEXT disaster. ;p

LOL.
Oh lovely.
At least you don't have a clogged potty anymore...

And YAY for meeting blog friends. ;)

Lisa said...

AHAHAHAHA!!! Beelzebub bowel movement! Love it! Um, and can I just say that I like your version of our luncheon picture WAAAY better than KyAnns. I love being stretched and thinned out. Especially on a steady diet of candy corns. Hey, next week we're having a blogger dinner at Biaggis on~oh, crap. I just realized it's on Thursday. One more thing to miss. But if for some chance we change it, let's go together.

Saimi said...

You just brought a memory of a scene of comical errors from our experience with a clogged toilet, snake, and a horrible plumber.

Ahh, I don't even want to go there!

Glad you had a great lunch with great friends!!

T said...

OI! you and your potty stories - this is why I fell in love with you :)

KyAnn (like Cayenne Pepper, only HOTTER) said...

That settles it. I MUST get photoshop. Holler if you need to come over and use my bathroom.

Cheeseboy said...

Maybe sometimes it is about the clogged toilet??? I know Dr. Phil is wise and all.

Doesn't anything funny happen at your house in, oh I don't know, maybe the kitchen, or the garage, or ...?

Brenda @Just a Bed of Roses said...

Krista...for some reason you make me not miss the kids living at home, the 3 boys one girl.

Kind of love being empty nester after reading your killer stories, thanks for the laugh!

Kari said...
