Oh me oh my

What were you doing at 9:30 last night?

Poor Jeffy was doing this:

It's hard to see, I know. But that is Jeff's head looking under the bottom of the toilet in the downstairs bathroom.

It has been clogged for several days. He finally faced the cold, gooey poop, I mean truth, and took the toilet apart.

The culprit keeping our commode from performing it's duties properly? A small, plastic magnifying glass. The kind picked up at birthday parties and the Dollar Store.

I will spare you the picture of the thing, as it was not fit for the public eye once removed.

Needless to say, there was a lot of handwashing and cleaning products with anti-bacterial properties used on hands and surfaces.

And the magnifying glass? It's using it's gifts of magnification on items such as last nights dinner, and the contents of the dustpan. And will soon be taking up space in a land fill near you.


  1. The days of shoving things in the toilet! I remember my dad having to do the same thing except a yogurt container was the culprit! Not a very happy dad he hates doing any kind of plumming!

  2. You are a supermom to raise 6 children! Very nice blog, Amy!

    Visit my blog when you like to, it's titled "Decisions About Money and Comments on World News of Today!"

    Thanks, John DeFlumeri Jr, Clearwater, FlDecisions About Money!

  3. As a dad I've cleaned up a lot of gross stuff, but that had to be one of the worst. Yuck!

  4. Doesn't always seem to happen when you are ready for bed? Glad you were able to find the culprit of the backup!
