Ear Infection, Cold Water, and Toilet Paper

What do these three things have in common? This is what I woke up to on Sunday morning. Sometime during the night, Saturday, I woke up with a terrible ear ache. I'm used to this, and the fact that we'd been swimming the week before, I wasn't really suprised. But I didn't get much sleep that night. So, Sunday morning, I woke up early to take a shower because our sacrament meeting starts at 8:30am. I know, it's awful! I waited and waited for the water to warm up, but it never did! I sent Danny up to the attic to check the pilot light on the water heater while I continued my cold shower, so we could get to church on time. When Danny was done, he looked out the front window and discovered that we had been toilet-papered! It was awful! They got EVERY bush, and BOTH trees! They also stole two of our solar landscape lights, and took our neighbor's lights, broke them, and tossed them all over our yard! Fortunately, we got the the TP before it started raining, so we were able to clean it up quickly. It looks like they used the huge, industrial toilet paper from our community pool bathroom. I don't know why these dorks chose us, but they did. Apparently our house looked like it needed some more decorating. Despite all of these set-backs, Danny still had a good Father's Day, and we ended up getting a good seat at church!

Yikes--what a day! But what happened with the cold shower--was it really the pilot?

Bummer of a morning. I am glad that Father's Day turned out well after all.

You know growing up when your house was tp'ed it was an honor. For the most part it was the cool kids that got tp'd. So, maybe it is a sign that you are the cool house:)

Yes, it was the pilot light. It was SUPER humid up in the attic and it took Danny 7 tries to get it lit because the humidity would put it right out!

When it rains it pours.
