To add to the pooping drama...

We decided it would be beneficial if we had someone come check out and fix our generator for the house. Just in case a hurricane comes through...OR the world comes to an end...then we'll have some kind of flickering power for a bit. WELL, the guy showed up after all sorts of bs and flakiness. SURPRISE SURPRISE! Now, here's the humor in the story. He wouldn't really get it going until someone was home...blah blah blah. So, i came home first and said "fine, let's get this thing running." We go out to the garage and do all sorts of things..turn one power switch on and one off, etc. By that time Paul pulls up and i tell him to tell Paul all about it...i have three kids in the house in the dark to tend to(since he had to cut the power off to the house to get it started). Well he goes into the garage and tells Paul this and that...by that time i'm walking into the house and the lights are flickering and all sorts of weird things are happening...then i smell something weird and i hear some weird noise behind the washer/dryer. No big deal, they kinda checked it out...but most importantly, the generator WAS working. HALLELUIA! Yeah, until we get inside and see that the darn clothes dryer is NOT working. So Paul runs around trying to get that working, all to no avail. We call American home shield and renew our policy that we had decided NOT to renew because we really had everything replaced that we had "semi-planned" would break. So, again, we call and renew the policy that was expiring tomorrow! HALLELUIA! THEN, we go into the bathroom in our bedroom to give the girls a bath....goodness they needed a bath after all the stench on their poor little behinds. Anyway, we notice it's not very cool back there...HMMM...something just isn't right. LOW AND BEHOLD, not only did turning on the freakin generator blow up my clothes dryer, it blew up our BRAND NEW A/C we just had put in less than a year ago! HOLY SCHNICKES! WHAT IN THE WORLD HAVE WE DONE??? WHAT could go more wrong. So, needless to say we're w/0 a/c on that side of the house...letting Hannah sleep out on the couch with Paul and the poor girls are in their bedroom in their beds with just pj's on(no halos) and there is a fan in the hallway sucking in the air from the living room a/c into the bedrooms to cool off that side of the house. OMG, what a day! So, i've changed about 40 or 50 poopy diapers and now i'm w/o a clothes dryer and a/c! Yeah, it's been a crappy day!

Here's to a better day tomorrow. Less poopy diapers, maybe some cool air and i'm won't even hold my breath on the clothes dryer being fixed any time soon since we're using American home shield. Let's hope this doesn't cost us more than the damn generator is worth! And, let's hope we don't actually ever have to use the generator again, since we know it'll blow out the a/c and the clothes dryer! :)

Thats an insane day! I hope you have a "boring" rest of the week for your sake!!

I only had one really bad poop episode with the kids and I would be happy to never have it happen again it was so bad. As long as they're drinking they should be fine in a couple days. But lucky you to get to be on diaper duty for that :(

Hope the girlies are feelin better soon! PS- it looks to my untrained eyes that they are becomng easier to tell apart in pics

This is one of the times wish a whole day just didn't happen. Hit that rewind button.

Oh my goodness!!! That doesn't sound like much fun of a day!!!! And I'm sure with the girls not feeling well, and all those poopy diapers, they're miserable too!!!


Hugs to you all. Hope it gets better soon!

No A/C?!? I hope that it is up and running again very soon.
