Don't judge me by the stains in my tub - it's old but it's clean. Judge me by the fact that there is no water standing in it!!

Last night I told Zeke to go take a shower. He came out later and said that the water wouldn't go out of the tub. I went in and tried to drain it and it wouldn't drain. I tried plunging it and that didn't work. The other kids had to take sponge baths from the sink :) After the kids went to bed I messed with the plug. It didn't feel broken so I figured we had a clog of some sort. I tried baking soda and vinegar down the drain - nothing. Boiling water - nothing. This morning the water was still standing in it. I had a feeling I should try to take the plug out. I tried to but could only get one screw to come out so I abandoned that and bought draino at the store - nothing. I bought a little pipe thing that I could stick down the drain to pull the clog out. I couldn't get it to go down. I knew then that it was the plug that was broken. I got a bigger screwdriver (the bigger the better right?) and finally got the other screw out. It was indeed broken. I pulled out all the pieces and down went the water! Yay! Now the tub is all cleaned and ready for kids to shower. Hurray for clean kids and clean tubs!
