As the New Year passed I, like everyone else, vowed to make 2010 better than the previous years... Ha-ha, not very likely.
I take care of my mom every morning before coming to work. I get the paper, get her breakfast, do some laundry, make the bed and after getting securely into her favorite chair, head off to work.
Usually during the span of my time there I visit her bathroom, and as a rule, leave the window ajar. On this day (when the temps were hovering in the teens) I was greeted by the window being half open, and the room being equal in temperature to tha of the front lawn. After what can only be described as a chilly visit I flushed... and nothing moved! Oh sure the water made the familiar rushing sound, but the rest stayed put.
It was at that very moment that I realized that my prior "window jarring" had frozen not only the toilet water, but also the sink-drip from tap to drain! In a panic I used the toilet scrub brush to smash the icy 1/4 inch skim and all went to its intended ending.
My life sucks!
