What a day yesterday was! This was the view of my basement around 11:00 yesterday morning.
Let me start at the beginning. Last week Hans and I noticed a slight leak in the basement. This is not entirely unusual in this area, and while we new it wasn't from outside moisture we assumed it was a mild leak coming from a hose we have down there (maybe needed a new washer or something). Then, on Friday, Hans was downstairs dealing with the dogs, and I was upstairs getting ready for the morning. When I flushed the toilet, Hans discovered that the leak was NOT from the hose, but was instead from a sewage pipe. EWWWW! Luckily, we had a home warranty and could easily get someone to come out and repair it.
I had noticed over the weekend that the leak was getting worse, and things were getting stinky. When the plumber came out, he informed us that it wasn't just a small leak. We could see the crack from the top of the pipe leading into the floor. The plumber had to drill into our floor and replace the whole pipe. I couldn't use the bathroom for the day. Luckily I had appointments and my appointments had toilets. :P
Right as the plumber was leaving the treadmill repair guy came. Get this, something had simply come unglued!!! Actually, that's about how I feel most of the time...coming unglued. Anyway, I now have a working treadmill again!! Woot!!! Sprinkles can get walked without going into the cold and rain, and I can walk without going into the cold and rain. It's a beautiful thing.
Other than that, I've been busy catching up on work. Things have been hectic but good. Let's keep this up!
