I haven't given up on 8 Hour Brunch....I Swear!!!!

So.....where have I been you may ask??? Well, the last two weeks with work have been insane I have worked 80-90 hours both I'm burning the candle at both ends and literally running on caffeine.....ick!

And just as I was getting back to starting my blogging and writing my "Skinny Bitch" review, (it is half way done by the way), DH and I decided to go to a few open houses last weekend. Well, fast forward one week and I am on the phone with realtors, preparing our house for sale and negotiating a sale contingency contract. So hopefully, fingers crossed we will be the proud owners of a lovely new construction home this coming November!!! Yay!

Now for the ick part. So yesterday, I arrive home from one of my 14 hour days (4am to 6pm), and notice a strange smell in my current home. So I venture to the basement and almost pass out when I realize the entire front of the basement is FLOODED with WATER!!!!!!!!!!! After screaming, calling my DH, running upstairs and changing, I return to the basement to try to find out what is causing this mess. Basically, the cap blew off the exit sewar yeah, my basement is full of not only water, but sewage....gross!!! And here is my question: who the hell thinks that capping a pipe with a piece of wood and cement is a good idea!!?? Seriously, who?? Because, that person who once owned my house, I'd like to meet them so that I can give them a piece of my mind and my plumbing bill!

So, this has been my last two weeks.....I cannot make any promises of posting this weekend because I have to spend the entire weekend decluttering the house and drying out the basement so that the house can be listed for sale next week.

So yeah, don't give up on 8 Hour Brunch!! I promise to be back bigger and better than ever in the very near future!



  1. Well, yay! It took me until yesterday to realize that you had a blog...uh, miss much, Dina?

    Take your is exhausting living life sometimes and it sounds (and probably smells) like it is...

    BTW, love the name of your blog!

  2. You poor thing! I sympathize, I've had more than my fair share of home problems (bees, heat not working, water pressure, you name it!)so I understand how horrible it can be when your home is not so homey feeling...

    I hope the problem gets resolved quickly and without too much hassle!

  3. Oh I am so sorry to hear this Jordyn! Please don't worry about the blog...your personal daily life issues must come first, and we will be here when you get back to blogging. :)

  4. You poor thing....what a mess to deal with!! Do what you need to do, we're here when you're back in business!! In the meantime, my sympathies!
