I have been slacking off on keeping the house clean lately. I really wanted to clean before we went on holidays because I like coming home to a clean house. Alas, that never happened. I came home to a house that needed some attention, but had a pretty busy work week last week and neglected my cleaning again. I figured, okay, well this weekend we have no plans, I will clean. I don't know what it was, but Jay and I both woke up in a foul mood yesterday so needless to say it was kind of a wasted day (though I have to say we made some AMAZING thai chicken pizza which was good for the morale around here).
I felt energized after our weekly post-church visit to Tim Horton's for some deliciously creamy coffee, so I decided that I need to make myself somewhat useful this weekend and clean the bathrooms. Side note: I don't like living in a particularly messy/dirty house, but I can put up with mess and dirt for much longer in other parts of the house, but the bathroom is what gets to me first. I have to clean the bathrooms, even though I can neglect vacuuming or dusting for weeks. Anyway, I was nearing being done my cleaning and went to flush the toilet after cleaning out the bowl and just as I flushed, for some reason the cleaning cloth which I was ringing out at the time fell out of my hand and with perfect timing swished down the toilet drain.
I felt very panicked. I wasn't sure what to do. I decided to take my chances and flush the toilet. The bowl slowly filled with water, but thankfully did not overflow. I tried, at the suggestion of Jay to stick a wire hanger down to see if I could hook it. No luck. I started thinking about going and buying a toilet auger, but after a call to his dad, Jay suggested trying the plunger. I tried it, fearful that I might cause a blockage further down the line, but it worked. We could definitely hear the whoosh of water and wash cloth as it went down the line. I flushed the toilet a couple more times and it seems to be fine! Phew!
