What a day yesterday was

011809

I got up yesterday to a frozen hot water line. It had gotten down to -5 here over night and the pipes are exposed under the kitchen. I had also been using the fireplace that night so the furnace had not been running.  A combination of the things allowed the hot water line to freeze. When I called my daughter to try and reach her husband she got real nasty with me because the line had froze. Like it had never froze when she lived in this same house. But I did finely speak to David and he told me what he had to do to thaw the lines out before. So over night I left a blow dryer on the hot water line under the kitchen sink and left the tap open a bit. This morning when I got up the line was thawed out and running fine. I called David back this morning and let him know that the problem was fixed and while I had him on the line I told him just how nasty his wife was and told him that he really needed to talk to her.

For some reason she is really angry about something in her life and I guess that mom is the one who she is taking it out on. I don't know if David and her are split up or what. I know that he had some back to Jersey around December 1st but I have no idea if he has gone back to Florida or not. The last anyone said to me about it was around January 7th and at that point he was still in Jersey. It none of my business what goes on between those two so I'm not even going to ask them. I know I had to make a real effort not to get nasty back with Jenn last night no matter how nasty she got with me. I so wanted to tell her off.  But I kept my mouth shut. I will just do my best not to talk to Miss High and Mighty. From now on I will just call David and be done with it.

Oh and how fast justice comes about. Miss High and Mighty already called with a bad case of the "I wants" and mommy had a bad case of the "I don't have's". One should really think about how they treat others before they open their mouths because you never know when you just might need that person.

There is nothing worse than frozen water pipes as if they burst, they sure can make a mess and do damage. I usually leave all my faucets drip when it gets real cold and also flush toilets often even if I don't have to use them. Also wrap a few pipes in towels that are on outside walls. Never turn off the furnace either. You were very fortunate that it didn't burst. Watch the pipe though as it could be weak. Also know what it's like to be ranted at by a married daughter. It's hard for me to not yell right back; however, everyone always says that you only hurt the one you love. There is something about the Mother/Daughter relationship that can cause these types of problems. The last time it happened when I was at her house and in front of the 4 and 8 year old, I cried the entire 1/2 hour drive home. She did call a couple of days later and apologize, stating job and everything else had just been getting to her. Try to grin and bear it and remember, if she didn't love you and feel that she could let her hair down and totally be herself with you, that wouldn't happen.

I am sorry to hear of the angry words of your daughter. I have gone through years of the same thing. Read my blog: decsixth.blogspot.com

It is about my journey with my daughter and how she has not let me see her kids. She DID recently call, and I called her back. We'll see how it goes.

Best of luck. Silence IS our friend, I mean our own silence!

Ow - frozen pipes aren't fun at all! We wrap ours in heat tape that DH picked up at Home Depot or Lowes and haven't had a problem since. A bit safer than having to run the blow dryer all night and leaving the tap on. Hope you don't have to deal with that again!
My lil' sis is unkind to my mom, so I'm sorry you're having to deal with that too!
