cleaned everything yesterday and this morning found alot of water in the turtle room floor. Fluval 304 decided to leak during the night. it's leaked before and sits in a small bucket, but it could only hold so much. anyway the ceiling downstairs needs to be repainted (it was painted 2 months ago because of previous water accidents) again. so i reseated the filter, to make sure it won't leak. however, the case decides to crack and is currently unusable. and its hot too, so the styrafoam cooler i was going to use for the turts can't be put to work.

then later in the day, i'm off to cut some tile i'm using for the new basking platform, and it shatters. only good thing is my turts are finally accepting veggies! however, one of them thought my finger was a carrot and took a chomp :roll:

Well Steve, just so you don't feel like you're the only one who has those days... I decided to clean the tank... got a new python.. figured, hey this is going to be a piece of cake.. Yeah RIGHT!!! I filled up (using the python) their "spare" play place so I could give this thing a thorough scrubbing. Everything's great so far.. Start to rip apart the tank.. and get yelled at by my 4 yr old grandson that I'm in his way and he can't play his game.. well too bad.. so I continue. Fix the set up on the Python to clean the tank.. and no go... not enough water pressure from my well to do that.. sigh.. so well back to the old siphon method. So, I have my 8 yr old grand daughter keeping an eye on the water level while I'm trying to get as much crud up as I can.. and then I get.. HELP me with this game please.. so I take a break to help him "beat" something and someone stopped watching the level of the water in the bucket.. and so then I covered my living room floor with dirty turtle water.. LOL... and at that time .. the phone decides to ring.. and its my son.. Hey Mom, remember that hotel we stayed at in State College.. well yeah but I'm flooded with turtle water.. I'll call ya back!!!! Oh and to top it all off.. when I realized that the water was over flowing.. silly me just dropped the wireless gamecube control.. guess where??? LOL in the dirty turtle water!!! Sheesh. So there's the laugh for the day.

hahahaha... I use to raise Golden Retrievers so I'm well aware of the running around and hair everywhere. Never had grandkids and puppies at the same time but I did have 4 young children of my own :)
