was doing a water change in our 220 gallon fish tank , got side tracked and during the refill over flowed it by about guessing 20 gallons ... got the wife hopping mad .. and had a hurry up major clean up .. damn good thing I have a wet dry shop vac. in about 2 hours had every thing back to semi normal and high volume air drying fan running.

got the cold shoulder for a couple hours too LOL OOOOPS
have to make sure I don't do that again . not to mention my back and hip muscles are screaming at me being bent over so long ... got leg cramps last night like crazy too .. so I'm paying for my error :)

Ain't it funny how when we screw up we get the cold shoulder and attitude but when it's the wife we seem to just laugh most of the time and say everyone makes mistakes. Of course sometimes laughing at them pisses them off too!

I run a 55 gallon sump tank for the filtering [a custom filter set up that works great] .. and keep it at a level about half way full with an 1800 gal. per hour water pump in it to take water back to the main tank ... well I didn't watch the re-fill process and was adding water through the top tank [the 220 gallon one] and through the spillway from top to bottom guess I over filled what the pump / spillway could handle in total gallons and walla a mess and semi disaster LOL

will see when wife gets up if all is forgiven , did laundry this am LOL maybe that will sweeten the pie :)

Yesterday I was on the phone with the bank, they needed the wifes middle name to add her to my business account. I told the girl..."Its Marie" my wife looked at me with a pissed look and said "That's not my middle name!!!" I gave her the "oh crap-confused look" My wife got pissed at me because even though she was just messing with my brain, (It is Marie) I took it seriously and had to think about. CRAP!!! Then the chick asked me for her birthday! OH MY GOD!!! I thought I was dead! I rattled it off like a stream of bullets from an M-60, again she says "that's not my birthday".... Oh, Lord, just take me now!!!
Sorry to hear about the fishtank! Us guys just never win!

soo Today ... oops number XXXXXX happens

Son calls and says Dad we're going out riding [grandkids 7 and 5 and Son on M/C's] and I haven't had the A/C out in a while so

well my trailer is so full of moving stuff we decided to try to load it in the bed of the truck [has a fuel tool tank in there and we we're going to go up on top with the front end ... well so now not only do I have a damaged stake pocket on my truck but I / we ruined a perfectly good tailgate ..... the cables that hold it both snapped and down went it gate .. nice crease down the middle from the bumper ..

so I told my Son truck 0 Son 2 ... the damaged stake pocket was his doing and he was driving the rig into the bed today :(

truck was in very good condition until he "helped" me twice now

You better just kick back in the recliner tonight and have that one drink that rat poison you take will allow.;) Have that pot of coffee in the morning then worry about damage control.

ya know the other day I bought a 20 + ounce [don't remember exactly what it was, it's out in the garage fridge] micro brew that looked interesting .. might just have to release the excess pressure of the cap into a tall frosty mug :) tonight .. I owe it to myself and I can claim I only had one LOL .. as to coffee you bet I have my and some others share every morning .. found a 30 Oz. Yeti stainless steel travel mug that fits the cup holders at Cabela's and fill it twice before I'm done :)

30 that's a big cup! My wife is mad tonight she lost her iPod, me and my daughter tried to locate it using iTunes but it's either dead or not connected to a hot spot. Once again I made the mistake of trying to be nice and saying I guess it's time for an upgrade, Gees get over it woman. Hell she has a laptop, iPad, iPod, Barns & Noble Nook, and a Nintendo 3DS. Compared to what happened to you today her lost iPod ain't s**t.
