Mess! Mess! Mess!
I give up! Just when I thought I could
come home from a relaxing week at the beach
thanks to daughters Nancy and Katrina.
I came home and the second day back, I saw a 2 inch wet spot
in the tile grout in front of the fridge.
Called the handyman next day to pull out the fridge to check
for leaking. It was leaking all right. Up the wall, under the
tile, behind the dishwasher, up the wall in the bathroom,
under the tile, behind a cabinet. There was also mold.
There were four holes in the water supply tubing. It had been leaking for a loooong time.
I stopped the handyman, called my insurance company, they
called their people, and an hour later one of their people
was in my kitchen taking pictures and calling someone else.
In about forty five minutes someone else showed up with
de-humidifiers that could suck moisture out of a desert
and fans that could create enough wind to lift a 747
all the way to Mars. The combination of these machines
sounded like jet engines whining and revving up just before takeoff.
So much for sleeping. Neil kept getting confused
as to whether we had purchased our tickets and where were
we flying to? We were doing happy dances when after several
days and nights the machines were taken away.
My island is sitting against the other cabinets, my cook top
disconnected and the dishwasher sits out in the middle of the kitchen.
The fridge has it's water supply cut off but
they shoved it back in it's rightful place so my food
We've been eating take out and sandwiches, pop tarts
and those crinkly things that you can put in the toaster.
Never mind what the bathroom looks like it is still usable
but all the tile is being replaced so our throne will soon
be absent and we will have to move upstairs. That will
upset Neil's apple cart because when we go up there
he thinks he is at someone else's house and keeps wanting to go home.
Lord luv a duck, what a MESS!
I'm trying to look on the bright side. I am getting new
tile in the bathroom and kitchen. I need a new oven so
much I think I'll buy a new oven and then the counter tops
