Anyone want to guess what these rusty things are?
These are the “pipes” that have plagued me for nine years. No wonder they wouldn’t carry water away from the house! They are completely rusted out and missing their undersides!
The new pipes went down Tuesday afternoon. So, guess what I did with my Wednesday? I spent the day putting our new pipes to the test. I ran the dishwasher and the washing machine and told Benjamin to take a shower all at the same time. No flooding! It seems so trivial, but I can’t express how happy I am to be able to wash clothes in this house without stopping and starting the machine to prevent flooding the laundry room. It’s so nice to run my dishwasher without gallons of nasty water filling our sink.
Because of the giant hole and the lack of a floor, I haven’t been able to sweep or mop. They just put the concrete back in our foundation this morning. This is what our floor likes like today:
You know what this means, don’t you? No cooking and no washing dishes until tomorrow afternoon. No mopping until some time next week after they install the flooring. I don’t know if I can handle it. OH, WAIT! Yes, I can!
