This Fathers Day Stinks

Literally




     What with all the rain and things today of all days my sewer has backed up in the basement.  Can you say smell!  Here I spent all morning dusting and vacuuming, cleaning the bathroom and then OMG, whats that smell.  I looked at Zoey, she has some pretty room emptying gas at times, but she was sleeping soundly.

   So now the kids are due in a few hours and my house stinks to high heavens.  The workers are down there working and hopefully will have some tips to rid the place of the smell.  I have a ton of bleach I can use but bleach triggers my asthma big time.  We may end up in a motel.  Any suggestions?  I have never had this happen before.  Fortunately my basement isn't a finished basement.  What a mess that would be. 

     Of course I could sleep in my new van.  I think it is comfortable enough.  So, hope all you fathers out there are having a better fathers day then my husband is.

  Well, it turned out to be the city's sewer that backed up so at least I didn't have to pay for it and they sent someone out to clean it.  So here are 4 fathers scrubbing down my smelly basement and getting it to smell like a rose.  The house is 100% better.  They also disinfected the basement with antibacterial wash. And they were very prompt. 

   The kids still aren't here though they are in Iowa.  Detouring here and there and slowly making their way closer.  Soon they will be in my arms.
