This isn't a real blog post - it's just a crappy update. I've been bitching about my plumbing problems so much lately that I wanted to assure everyone that help is on the way.
If you want a REAL blog post, check out my previous one.
In desperation, I called my Tennessee realtor today and asked if he knew any reliable (or even unreliable) plumbers. He referred me to a friend of his named David and the guy showed up within twenty minutes. He checked out my pipes (don't panic, it was nothing sexual). At least one is broken and none have been winterized.
Unfortunately, David recently had knee surgery and can't crawl around under houses very well. Also, his elderly father is hospitalized in serious condition. He promised to fix the pipes ASAP. I told him to take his time and not to worry. If I survived this past week without water, another week won't kill me. Maybe.
You'll have to excuse me while I go through my annual Downton Abbey withdrawal. Season Five just ended and I'm already getting the shakes and breaking out into a cold sweat.
Has anyone ever been startled when that clock on my blog sidebar chimes? Every time it bongs it scares the living jeeters out of me. When I initially installed it I had no idea that it chimed.
I just edited the clock. Hopefully it won't chime any more. I didn't want to risk scaring someone to death.
