I was glad to plan to go to Disney Tuesday, but only if the seal held! We got busy doing school and I started washing laundry like a madwoman to fill up the mid. When it was full I turned off the washer and let it sit as it was, and then checked that the toilet had water halfway up the bowl. It did. Then I timed it for an hour, and no leaks! Thank God! I was praying so hard! I can’t believe I fixed it! I’m probably still gonna check it every once in a while just to make sure. I started the washer again and we went on with our day.
After lunch we headed out to Epcot. I wasn’t able to get many fast passes, but we had Sorin and Finding Nemo. For Sorin we got great seats, the bottom of the middle; almost no distortion there. Afterward I asked about the walking tour of The Land; it was so interesting the other day I figured I would enjoy that. But they charge you for the tour. I’ve already paid enough, I think. And I especially wouldn’t want to pay another $25 for Jack to come. Finding Nemo was a little kid’s ride, calm and relaxing. In the after-area there were aquariums and a tiny playground along with the usual gift shop.
We also rode Mission Space since the wait time was low, and I shopped a bit more than usual. We hit up Club Cool and I tasted some of the other Cokes since the low carb diet is no more. I liked all the ones I tried, they were all sweet and fruity. At one point Max went to Test Track while Jack and I went to the playground, where I read Reacher and Jack asked adults to play tag. That kid!
We ran to the grocery store on our way home to get milk for the morning. I also wanted to drop off Jack’s old glasses in the donation bin. We walked right there and I told Jack to put his old glasses in the bin. He reached right up and almost had his new ones in there before I could grab them! Crazy kid!
Today I was looking forward to some relaxing since I got groceries last night, but then Tj told me the pipe for the shower came in on Monday, so Jack and I walked to the office to get it at recess.
Of course they didn’t send what we ordered. I don’t get why this is such a big ordeal to replace, but it is! I chatted with Tj for a bit, took some pictures (with my awesome new camera) and sent them…the new part doesn’t work. He sent me a link to print out a return address and I got that packaged up. He also found a plumbing place in Orlando for me, so after the boys got back from the playground I left them home while I drove up there. I stopped at a nearby UPS store to drop off the other pipe. I walked in this new store with a big “We’re Open Now” sign and saw no one. I called out a couple of times, and finally some dude walked inside and said he was sorry but they were closed just for today. Poop. The drive to the plumbing store was 30 minutes. I walked in and showed the guy the old pipes, one was the right diameter but not the right length, could they help me? Of course not. But fortunately there was a plumber there who offered to fix me up. He walked me around the store and picked up a few things that would work, we just have to get a hacksaw to cut them down to size. I double checked that the glue we had would work with what he was getting, and then told him back all the steps involved in getting us set up. Then I took a picture of what we needed to do and thanked him profusely. I’d rather have parts made to fit, but for $4 I’ll buy this in case we don’t find another place.
On the way home I searched for another UPS store, but didn’t realize until I was close that it was the same stinking store! Ugh. I got home with enough time to read a bit before making salad for supper before church. When we pulled into the church parking lot Max remembered that it was parents’ night in his class, so Jack and I joined him there. It was a cute class, and the Esther video they played before the lesson was beautiful! Patricia from my Sunday School was there, so she sat by me and we chatted a bit.
