(Easy answer. Click here. Funny story, read on.)
“So, how did you spend your Sunday evening, Eric?” Well, let me tell you. I was just about to sit down to a tasty dinner of left over grilled chicken and shish kabob over rice, when I was faced with the daunting task of unclogging a toilet. It was a task that had been lingering since earlier in the day, but I had left it be in hopes that it would “soften” or take care of itself. No such luck. Unfortunately for me, one of my good buddies left this present earlier in the afternoon, and then he was off.
Look, I realize that this has absolutely nothing to do with baby blankets. And that’s ok. This is life. And poop is a part of life. So, if you don’t want to read about poop, that’s fine. Go visit our store instead! (shameless plug).
So after a good deal of plunging and not getting anywhere, I had to think outside of the box. We don’t have a snake. We didn’t have any drano. So, what’s a man to do? Well, using my caveman like ingenuity, I thought, “Why not try the shopvac?” I can just suck the poop right out. Right? Wrong! Horrible idea. What I realized while plunging was that I was not getting a good seal with the plunger. When I sucked out all the poopy water with a shop vac, I tried plunging a few more times. I wasn’t getting anything and realized that if I had a bad seal before with the plunger, it was even worse now. I needed more water. So, I flushed again and the water rose again. The only good out of using the shop vac was at least I had cleaner water to plunge with now. “Clean” is a very liquid idea at the moment, as my good friend Kat would quote Hitch would say.
So, next step. Man Ingenuity Activate! Go to the internet, stupid. I went to Drano’s site – expensive and nothing really for a clogged toilet. Then, I saw someone on a forum mention the “dish soap” method. Huh? New Google search. After a bit of hunting, I found this video on How to Unclog a Toilet with Dish Soap and Hot Water. Excellent presentation. Funny video, but will it work. I went downstairs, and fired up my teapot. I reshopvacced to get all the water out of the toilet, gave a good squeeze of dish soap, and waited for my water to boil. A few minutes later, I poured it in and crossed my fingers.
Now, the idea behind this is pretty simple. Lubricate that poop and get it out. The hot water I think may expand the pipe just enough to get some soap around it. After ten minutes of waiting, I came to a commode that still looked clogged, but was much nicer smelling. I gave it a flush….but no such luck. Disappointed, I started plunging again.
You know when you are plunging how your heart is not really in it? You’re just kind of moaning about having to plunge and getting poopy water splashed up on you. That’s where I was, although, it was kind of soapy, poopy water. Then, you realize that your heart is not in it, so you decide to risk the splashing and give it a few good plunge strokes. Well…I did..and VOILA!!!!! I saw water going down and heard that wonderful gurgling noise. HOOOOORRRRRAAAYYYYY! I freaking love the internet. I feel like a freaking man for fixing things. I still have poopy water on me, but I am much happier!!!
So, there is my story. I had to clean up the shop vac (dry heaved a few times), and then I thought I’d share with the world. Pardon my grammar. It’s late. Again, this has nothing to do with babies, but if you have kids and babies around the house, the last thing you need is a clogged toilet. Do yourself a favor. Watch the video. Use dish soap and hot water. Save $30 and a plumber call, etc. Be happy. The End.Filed under Funny, Info, Videos | Tags: dish soap and hot water to unclog a toilet, unclog a toilet | Comment (0)
If you haven’t heard the news yet, we are pregnant!!! This is such a blessing because we had been trying to get pregnant since the fall of 2008. It has been a journey of faith, and we feel God is blessing us tremendously by answering our prayers.
My wife told me the news on a night that I was leaving for a Chick Fil A opening in Nashville, TN. While I was feverishly packing up, she asked me to come in our room for a second. She gave me a card that said, “we’ll miss you while you are gone.” My immediate thought was, “typo”. And then it registered… “WE”??? “REALLY”??!!!!????!!!! We hugged and laughed and cried together all at the same time. It was a precious moment that I’ll never forget.
Then, I packed up my car and drove 4 hours away for 2 days, leaving my pregnant wife behind to go score some free chicken. I know. Crazy, right? Because of some health complications she had as a child, my wife wanted to keep the news to ourselves until we were further along in the pregnancy. But, we are now nearly 13 weeks and everything is going great! We’re still praying for a healthy pregnancy and baby.
So, as I take care of my sleepy, nauseous wife, we are looking forward to the great adventure of parenting that lies in front of us.
Watch the video below to see our church’s reaction to telling the news (a few in the room knew already and several folks were absent for the big news, but still a lot of fun!). Hooray! In September, we’ll finally get to use some of these baby blankets!Filed under Pregnancy, Videos | Tags: Pregnancy, pregnant | Comment (0)
If you are a dog lover, you absolutely must watch this video!!! What does this have to do with baby blankets you ask? Well …. you see … dogs and baby blankets go together …. like …. like …. Oh, ok. You got me. There is no correlation between the two, but who cares? There are some videos that are cute and then there are some videos that make you belly laugh out loud. It’s Friday. It’s time for a good belly laugh.
I have a golden retriever, and he’s one of my best buds in the world. There is no doubt that he loyally loves me, but he also loves treats, like the dogs in this video. Enjoy, and have a great weekend!Filed under Funny, Videos | Tags: Funny, pedigree dogs, video | Comment (0)
Here’s a cute little video to start your day. How many moms out there can relate to this one? Nursing your baby is a very special gift, but there has to be a time when the little one is weened off. Come to think of it, it’s a pretty good metaphor for parenting and life. When that time comes, be strong and be creative. We love our security blankets which you can check out here, but you may need to use your judgment as a mother on if it’s a good time to introduce one. You don’t want to train your child to jump from being on dependent from one thing to another.
Anyway, enjoy this cute little clip. It’s not Tom Cruise in Top Gun, but a fun little spoof. Does this feel like the breastfeeding experience you know moms? Have a great weekend everyone!Filed under Funny, Videos | Tags: breastfeeding, nursing, video | Comment (0)
Ok, here’s a little weekend entertainment on the light side. These babies can get down and do some amazing tricks on roller skates. Evian has used a classic sales technique that works which is …. babies are cute. So, what’s better than one cute baby selling our product? 30 cute babies! And what’s better than 30 cute babies??? 30 cute babies on roller skates! Genius Evian. Genius. You win again.
So, yeah, this video has absolutely nothing to do with baby blankets. Though, they could probably make a video with these babies as Jedi Knights wearing baby blankets. We just thought we would lighten up your weekend a little bit. Nothing wrong with a good commercial every now and then.Filed under Funny, Videos | Tags: evian, roller skating babies, video | Comment (0)
