Drive by blogging

I'm off to catch a plane in a few minutes, but wanted to give y'all a yard update.

They are finished, for now.

Yesterday, with more green powder, they discovered that our bathroom line is seperate from the kitchen line. Apparently this is NOT. GOOD. They said that "someone" will be out "soon" to re-lay our pipes. Yippee.

I'm not sure if they'll be tearing out the old pipes, but they left this lovely trail of spray paint behind.

Thanks to everyone for their sympathies. Yes, we know that the city will repair/replace everything they tear up. This happened to us a few years ago when we lived with hubbo's mom and they tore her street up (though she was not in such a bad place as us - she just had to have a few sprinkler heads replaced).

The really bad part of all this? School starts in 3 1/2 weeks and because of the way our neighborhood is laid out, there is one road to the school and one from (one way streets during school hours). We live on the road to school. Over 75% of kids that go to our school get there via carpool. I can only imagine the nightmare ahead.

I'm off to Indiana for my little sister's wedding shower. I should be blogging from the road, but perhaps not with such frequency. Back soon with actual knitting content!


  1. Sounds like you are in for a fun time. I guess all the commotion will give you plenty of excuses to take the dogs for long (and far-away) walks?

  2. Hope your trip is great! Your poor yard--I can't believe they would do something like that in Fort Worth (lame attempt at joke).

  3. Enjoy your sister's wedding shower and the break from your yard and pipe insanity!

  4. (making a pitstop from amazing lace KAL)
    Loved reading your blog and hope that all the pipe stuff will settle down soon for you so that that stress is gone and you can go on knitting!

  5. I’m also stopping by on my amazing lace pit stop… have fun at your sister’s shower! Your “kerchief” and “tube top” look great!
