Things that must go

It's time again to play one of my favorite games: Things that must go. The short, but random list of annoying things that just shouldn't be.

1. The sprinklers turning on mid-shower, decreasing the water pressure to a trickle- making it impossible to rinse all of the shampoo out. Yeah- that's gotta stop.

2. Standing water in the shower, and no draino in the house, so it's in that state for a few days. It really limits just how long one can stand under the running water, before it spills over the edge and turns the bathroom floor into a pool.

3. Being otherwise occupied when the cleaning/organizing mojo turns on. It's a fickle thing, the mojo. It must be seized when the opportunity arises, it doesn't wait for the busy.


  1. Same thing happens with my water pressure lately, and it makes me mad because we re-piped three years ago. I really need to get a plumber out here to figure out what's up.


  2. We used to have a problem with water pressure but then we got soft water and cleaned the gunk out of the pipes and VOILA! - good pressure. But the shower still goes cold if the toilet gets flushed. That's a problem.
