yesterday was a school day.. mikey's 4th day back to school. it went mostly well. some resistance and tantruming.. but nothing major. came home to find out that this new plumber we called used his "better and stronger" equipment to push the roots out of the sewer pipe and now it is working fine..and guaranteed for 1 year. so crisis averted..for now at least. and we will still get to go to the water park for mikey's birthday in may!
