The past 2 days I've managed to talk about dying my hair and potty training on this blog.
And just when I thought it could not get any more embarrassing around here, this happened. . .
7 short paragraphs of explanation:
For the next 3 days it is going to be really cold in our neck of the woods, like in the 20s! And I know for those of you facing -50 degree F windchill tomorrow (predicted for North Dakota) that would be balmy, but for us it is COLD, colder than it's been in 20 years kinda cold! So we are not used to having to worry about our pipes freezing.
And my husband and I are not plan-aheaders, so we don't have any of those fancy foam faucet covers on hand and now that the city is all in a frenzy about the freezing temps. we knew all the stores would be sold out of such things. But thankfully I heard on the radio that diapers were good insulators and that you could cover your outdoor faucets with them and secure with duct tape.
Diapers! Now that is something we do have around this house -- and have had in active use for the past 7 years straight!
So when my husband got home from work last night he strapped on the iPod, armed himself with some diapers, and set to work.
When I walked out later to see his creations I cracked up.
Seriously, we have no shame left at all!
The exterior of our home is now adorned in Elmo themed Pampers!
P. S. I would like to take this opportunity to say a sincere apology to my neighbors.
