So, about yesterday….
While we waited on a plumber for what felt like forever, thankfully someone from our Town water authority was able to come over and fix the basement drain issue. And now things are good. Whew! I never in a million years expected it to be that easy, mostly because a few years ago we were told we needed to have the lawn dug up and get the pipes replaced, which would have cost thousands of dollars and we never would have been able to afford it. But long story short, that plumber was very wrong. It was tree roots in the line! But I was paranoid that this time we might be told that again and maybe this time they’d be right and we’d be up shit’s creek quite literally :-/ But anyway, it seems for now things are good… Thanks for your positive plumbing vibes 😊
trans-parenting thanks 😊 We need it!!!! Haven’t been able to get ahold of anyone yet. The water has receded for now thankfully but it comes right back when we use any water. We have had tree root clogs in the past so I’m hoping they can snake it out again. Trying to think positive and not assume it’s gonna be the worst case scenario (even though that’s usually how things go for us money wise.)
Send all the birthday cards!
Almost zero chance I will get any sleep tonight. Can’t stop thinking and worrying what the plumbers will say tomorrow. Son of a bitch!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Life really has a way of kicking us when we’re down. Our basement drain is backed up and there’s water everywhere. Can’t do anything til morning but I’m just hoping and PRAYING it’s tree roots or something causing it and not a major problem that will cost thousands of dollars to fix. Please, seriously, say a prayer for us that it won’t be a huge, expensive ordeal because it could really TOTALLY break us financially.
Sometimes I think I have an insane amount of pins on Pinterest (3,358 at the moment)……but then I look at some other profiles, and….wowzers!!!! Just saw one that was over 60,000! I guess I’ll keep right on pinning my little heart out.
