Bath Time and Harleys

We have lived in Milwaukee for 10 years now and have not had too many problems getting in, out, or around the city during festivals, Brewer games, holidays, and so on. BUT...there is nothing like a motorcycle party that makes you want to hole up inside your home till the coast is clear! The 105th anniversary was mild and we moved the weekend of the 100th, which was a major bash but we were busy unpacking and setting up our first place together. This year, 110, forced some of our second shift staff at work to be late, as the interstates were moving at a crawl and any destination has to be well thought out, trying to avoid highways and staying on city streets (which I personally avoid and prefer the interstate). While it is awesome to see all the camaraderie and people visiting from all over the world, the news stations are reporting on it to death! It's so bad that one reporter asked a couple from Germany "How do you say Harley Davidson in German?" Umm, it's a brand, a unique name like anyone else's name, is said the SAME WAY IN ANY LANGUAGE! I'll get off my soapbox, but they are ruining a special thing in this city and I'm going to have to stop watching the news till at least Tuesday.

We have a new bath arrangement...



...two kids that FIT in the kitchen sink! About a week ago Craig told me the laundry downstairs was wet, suspected that it was from the shower. Then the next bath after that, I ran downstairs to start a load of laundry as Craig was getting the kids out of the tub, and water was dripping from the ceiling! So we called a plumber and of course the first thing he says is, "No more baths." We aren't even sure where the leak is:( We may be remodeling our upstairs bathrooms a lot sooner than we thought.
