I keep reminding myself it is only "stuff". Not the things I really care about, my family and friends.
Around noon I went upstairs to bed. I was physically exhausted and needed to lie down. It felt like I had just fallen asleep when my Dear Hubby called me on my cellphone. "What are you doing?" Me: (annoyed) "Sleeping!" Hubby: "I hear water. Did you flush and maybe the toilet is still running?" I went and checked both toilets on the second floor. "Nope. They are fine". Him: I hear WATER!" Dear Hubby races to the basement. Long story short...a pipe in the basement ceiling burst and water was shooting all over Hubby's office! The carpet, walls, hubby's desk, five bookcases and all of my hard back books are being doused with water! Hubby raced to the main water shutoff. We called the plumber's emergency number and $283 later he left. "I hope not to see you again for quite a while.", he says. This is the same company, and man, that spent 8 hours unclogging my sink ($850). I called our ins company. We have a $750 deductible and the plumbing repair is not covered. Grrrr....if I kill "Murphy" and his damn laws will you visit me in prison?
