Tyler's newest, most used phrase is, "awww, great!" He uses it at appropriate times to express disapproval.
Today would have been an appropriate time to use this phrase.
Wayne called to say that the sump pump failed. Kansas has been hit with lots of tornadoes (luckily not in Wichita) and strong storms (which we have had in Wichita) for several consecutive nights and it isn't over yet. There was water in the basement when he got up this morning, and he was not a happy camper.
Though he sounded very tired, by this evening he was in better spirits. He has things under control. He has bought a new pump and plans to try to install it tomorrow. He is so handy and fixes or installs just about anything he tries. I'm glad he is there to take care of things. If I had been the one home alone, I wouldn't have a clue how to replace the sump pump!
