Have you ever had one of those periods of time when everything seems to head downward at the same time? This last week has been a killer.
Just as we thought my daughter's cottage was nearly complete, her plumbing clogged up. Four days and four plumbers and none of them could break up the clog. We finally had to bring in a company that blows out huge city fountains and they managed to blast out an 80 year old shitfest. It took ripping out the new bathroom wall and floor to do this so a lot of steps backward on that project. Then The Blog Tech saw a crack in his ceiling and our contractor found out that the basement joists were failing and we had to replace them all. Not to mention the patching and painting of all the above. Old houses!
Then the worst part of the week happened. My daughter's boyfriend was on his motorcycle coming home from work late at night and the car in front of him slammed on it's brakes with no warning. The Chef went flying. He broke his elbow, three bones in his foot and has brush burns from head to toe. He spent several days in the hospital after surgery. The poor guy said he liked being in the hospital because you can be lazy and no one yells at you. He needs some time away from restaurant kitchens! He hated the hospital's food and told my daughter that he would love a BLT. I spent a big chunk of yesterday frying bacon and baking bread and made him killer BLT's. He is on the mend but has no idea when he can go back to work. A one handed chef with a gimpy foot is a no go.
I went to a local farm and bought hydroponic lettuces, fresh eggs and hoop house veggies and made everyone big salads to go with the BLT's. Whomever said that bad luck comes in 3's might be right.
