Gotta love water

After posting yesterday's blog post I walked downstairs to look for some paint. We're gonna do some touch ups before an appraiser takes a view. What surprise do I get on my shoulder? A water drip from the ceiling... Yes, the ceiling in the basement. Dang, what's that??

After Tim and I stood there for a few minutes, some what stupified, he asked me to go and see if the sink upstairs in the kitchen was leaking at all. I ran up and looked, nope. But then I remembered that the refrigerator had some work done on it a few months back. I pulled it out and ... ugh, big pool of water. Yep, there was the culprit.

So after only $61.00 to a plumber, our leak is fixed.


But I have a feeling it's gonna be a bit more to fix this:



At least the whole ceiling didn't fall in, but we're a bit concerned about the route of the water. Where it came out isn't anywhere near where the refrigerator sits.. hmm..


So, I'm feeling a bit like this reference of Mary's. Yet, I'll convince myself to be more like this reference of hers.


How am I doin'?


I'll talk about that top hat later, it deserves its own post.

Actually, your smile looks less strained than Mary's.

I'm sending good vibes your way but that's an unnatural act for me, so I dunno about their efficacy. Good luck, anyway.

Cute picture of you! Good luck with the ceiling repair. ;P

BTW, I tagged you for a "Six word" meme. If you want to play along, details are at my blog.

If you need any tips on water damage I used to work with that so I can help. Let me know.
