A Comedy of Errors

I had such high hopes for this past weekend.  I had my to-do list ready to go.  Spring breakers are in town so I knew I would be on lock-down all weekend as it would be impossible to get anywhere!  In addition, rain was forecast for the whole weekend so that guaranteed I would have to stay in the house and behave.

Then the leak happened.  Just a small drip in the bathroom.  Nothing to worry about, right? Well...when I got home from work Friday night, the drip was now a large drip.  The landlord was going to be there first thing Saturday morning to repair it.  When I awoke Saturday morning, the drip was now a large hiss.  And I was quickly running out of towels!!

I live in WWII era home.  That means there was no water shut-off valve at the sink.  So I sat without water Saturday morning while the sink was repaired.  That translates to not only extra loads of laundry from all the towels; but now hours delay in getting the laundry and dishes started.

Sigh.  There is nothing I love more than having to rearrange everything to accomodate an unforeseen circumstance (sarcasm).  Needless to say, I spent the remainder of Saturday hauling butt to catch up! How do you deal with those unexpected bumps in the road?

Let me know your tips and tricks!!
