This Stinks

So we woke up this morning to a putrid smell. I was worried we would discover a dead rodent or something.

Then I heard Darcy call me by my proper name (he NEVER does that) in a highly strained voice. He was in the basement, and our sewer line had exploded. All over our basement.

One thing I haven’t mentioned is Darcy and I have been saving our pennies since January. We’ve accumulated a little bit of savings. Which is completely wiped out by this “worst case scenario” (Thanks emergency plumber!) Also gone: beautiful hardwood floors (our only hardwood floors) my computer, our wi-fi, etc, etc) NEW: High volume fans, to run 24 hours a day for at least three days.

This is a bump in the road and silly really all things considered. Please bare with me as I write posts from my iPhone. Etc.

I can’t do a fancy link but I highly recommend reading this post:
