COLD…TO FREEZING…”SHOWERS”…

AS DEMOLITION CONTINUES AT THE ALLEN HOUSEHOLD!!!

GO TEAM ALLEN!!!  GO TEAM “MR. ROOTER PLUMBING” from Jacksonville, FL!!!  With company specialist from Orlando, FL here to “LEAD” us all to VICTORY!!! (As the crowd “cheers” 🙂

“CHOOSING… to be positive.  CHOOSING… to be happy!!!”  OMG, folks!  “Choosing…” is a post “just” added to this blog on March 8, 2014!!!  I CANNOT MAKE THIS STUFF UP!!!  Anyways… “WE,” at the ALLEN household, are choosing to be “positive” …and… “happy” as  demolition continues!!!

COLD SHOWERS began Mon. evening.  “LIFE” got in the way of…dealing with “LIFE” ( our hot water problems at home)…so it was late Tues. afternoon before we “remembered” the problem waiting for us at home!!!  Mr. Rooter Plumbing from Jacksonville, FL sent a wonderful young man, STEVEN AMAN (“Amen” if said with Jamaican accent 😉 to “diagnose” the problem on Wednesday.  BIG PROBLEM(S)!!!

Funny how we had “forgotten” all of the minor “leaks” previously doctored, independently, over the years!!!  HA!!!  DOUBLE HA!!!  HA!!!  Yep, we covered those minor problems with “bandaids”!!!  WELL… THE BANDAIDS ARE NO LONGER WORKING!!!  This is so, so FUNNY, folks… OR WE’D BE CRYING right now!!!

SO ANYWAYS… we have taped audio/video, compliments of Danielle’s I-phone, of my son, Chase… “cheering” himself on to survive Wednesday’s, colder than Tuesday’s, evening shower!!!  This was “DAY…”3” of cold showers at the Allen household!!!  Here was the “pep rally” he gave himself…behind that “monkey” shower curtain:  “AIN’T NUTTIN’ FOR CHAAASE!!!  CHASE GOT THIS!!!  AIN’T NUTTIN” FOR CHAAASE!!!  OWE (high-pitched screech)!!!”  HA!!!  DOUBLE HA!!!  HA!!!  We ALL “died,” listening to this from our living room!  Yep, so-so FUNNY!!!  AND WE’VE GOT RECORDED PROOF!!!  🙂

DAY “4” …of cold showers at the Allen household.  Thursday evening…  Have I mentioned how much I LOVE my husband???  HE IS THE BEST!!!  This is so, so funny, folks!!!  My poor husband is being “beat-up” by his “J-O-B”!!!  He got home today, run-down, tired, and half-sick.  He just wanted a nice, WARM shower…  🙂  Do not ask me how “this” worked-out, but…my husband… heated a big pan of water on the stove and went behind that “monkey” shower curtain ( we can only shower in the kids’ bathroom)… READY FOR BATTLE!!!  And “HOW” did that work-out for ya…huh, Chris???  Well, Mr. “FIX-IT” DAD must have felt triumphant because he encouraged the rest of us to seek his advice for…”surviving those rigid freezing shower temps” at the Allen household!!!  I am not kidding, folks.  I could not make this stuff up!!!

Boy, you just gotta love “LIFE”!!!  “ROLL” …with those punches!!!  LAUGH … instead of CRY!!!  ENJOY THE RIDE!!!  Life is short and we are trying to enjoy “ALL” of it!!!  🙂

GO TEAM ALLEN!!!  GO TEAM “MR. ROOTER PLUMBING” (Jacksonville, FL)!!!  WE ARE, TRULY, ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!
