Go With the Flow?

It’s been raining for over 12 hrs again and so there is some flooding going on here in Nowheresville again. I don’t think it’s to the extent that it was last week because no one is posting pictures and freaking out about it this week like they were last. Our local paper is completely unreliable so unless I hear about it from a friend I don’t really hear anything locally. It’s sad, but it is what it is.

ANYWAY… our neighborhood is out of the flood plane for the creek that runs through town. We haven’t had any standing water anywhere except our garden. That’s a good thing right? WRONG. We haven’t had any standing water because our storm sewer is over flowing into our sanitary sewer, which was never built to have that much water flowing through it at once thus creating a massive sewage fountain at the end of the street. 

Okay, so it’s not literally a FOUNTAIN of sewage, but I mean any bit of sewage seeping it’s way up into the road and surrounding yards is TOO MUCH. We’re not even sure how the sewers are co-mingling because they aren’t supposed to be that way. Sanitary is supposed to be it’s own separate system. Clearly it is NOT, or it’s just backed up because there is flooding on the other side of town… I don’t know. All I know is that it’s really grossing me out to have sewage all over the place. It’s not even right in front of my house, and it’s still grossing me out. I can’t imagine what those people down the street are dealing with as it’s in their yard!

YUCK. I’m actually trying to eat breakfast and having a hard time just thinking about it. lol. Which is odd since I’ve never been one to have a weak stomach, but y’know. I actually think it’s because I ate too much yesterday. I cleaned the entire house top to bottom in preparation for the big move and in doing so I burned a crazy amount of calories. Since I’m doing the My Fitness Pal thing and counting calories I had to eat a lot more than I normally do. Even this morning I’m still completely stuffed from dinner. I can’t skimp out on calories either since I’m still breast feeding. I have to eat a certain amount or my milk production will stop. 

I guess it’s a good thing that I don’t really have anything planned for today then. lol. I can just lounge around and not do anything to off set all of the calories I didn’t eat yesterday. Anyway… Nora is fussing. I better go see what she needs. Until later Bloggies. 🙂
