🎶Oh okay, here's the situation, our pipes decided to take a month's vacation
And they wouldn't let the water drain, would I mind, umm, well, of course I would
Our plumber had to rush over to help me
I'd rather run away than to pay the bill they gave me 🎶
Can anyone name that tune? 🤣
So, yeah, I've been MIA for a bit. As I mentioned in a recent post, 2 unexpected major plumbing emergencies at 2 homes (ours & a rental), combined w/ a planned home improvement project already slated to occur, have left us paying 💲💲💸💸 in cash. Gulp. We're going to file insurance claims re: the plumbing & hopefully get reimbursed.
This pic is the current situation in my driveway. It took a week to excavate a tunnel under our house (swipe L) & they finally fixed the collapsed pipe yesterday. This week, they'll backfill. . Till then, I'm Queen of the Hill! 💪
So, for the last 3-4 weeks our kitchen sink wouldn't drain, black H2O rose up from the drain when we ran the faucet, & everything had a slight sewage scent (good times! 😵). Constantly bailing H2O!! Oh, & the battery died on one of our cars, my phone stopped working, & a few other random "what now??" occurances.
BUT, in the grand scheme of things, this is no big deal, especially considering all that recent hurricane victims are enduring. We're safe, healthy, & thankfully had the funds to pay these bills w/out going into debt thanks to the 'ol emergency fund built by our frugal ways & love of saving.
So, everything is getting wrapped up, I once again have a phone that works, & my only remaining 1st world problem is that the notebook app I used for EVERYTHING (tracking workouts, gift lists, to do lists, date day ideas, etc) is not showing ANYTHING when I installed the app on the new phone & the company has yet to respond to any of my pleas for help. Not cool, @evernote, not cool!
Anyway, I've missed you all & look forward to getting back to sharing my love of frugality, fitness, & macros.
