We interrupt this Mofo….
to bring you some late breaking news in the world of sewage. Yes, sewage. Monday night I woke up to check on Arthur at 1am. He was having a bad dream. As I was going back to my room, I stepped in a puddle of what I thought was water and something smelled like dead fish. The sewer line had backed up into our duplex. I woke Josh up for some help. Our hall was flooded, our living room, our front bathroom, the front closet, our master closet as well as the master bath. We lost our area rugs in the living room thanks to the sh-t water everywhere. All of our linens were put on the floor to save our record collection. I called maintenance and they came over and said “sorry, nothing I can do. The plumber will be in tomorrow.” So, we had to pack up the boys and the dog at 2am and go sleep over at our Austin family’s house. Ugh. The landlord called yesterday morning, Tuesday. The plumber said that some tree roots had caused the sewage to back up and flood our home with sh-t water. Oh, and I forgot to mention, both tubs had at least half a foot each of sh-t water as well. The landlord called a service company to come and vacuum up the water and there are giant fans in our duplex now drying the water that was left. They replaced our closet carpet. Thank God we have renters insurance because I am now filing a claim for what was lost as well as having to dine at restaurants until we are able to return home. Tonite I get to clean our floors and bathroom. And do inventory on what has been destroyed thanks to the sh-t water. Our landlord offered to have maintenance clean for me, but I told her not to bother. It would not be up to my standards. I have a baby that crawls on the floor. I will be sterilizing the place. I spent $50 in cleaning products yesterday. And insurance is paying for that as well. It is very frustrating being displace for 3 days. Therefore, there will be no Mofo this week. (Sad face). Next week we will be in New Mexico, which I am super excited about.
I hope you each have a lovely day. I will check in on Friday. We are having a CRAPTASTIC week. Literally!
peas and love….
