IllinoisLady- I'm glad #6 is behind you! 2 more to go, you've got this.
Well just when I thought my home expenditures were behind me - tree removal, new pool, yard work, painting & staining, foundation repairs, new roof, and lots of plumbing, our hot water tank crapped out. I took a shower Sunday night and noticed before I was done that I had the handle full over to the left, and it wasn't hot but warm. During the day we noticed when we used hot water it acted like air was in the line.
So long story short, I text my cousin who had installed that one, asking about installing a new one. He's busy at work and didn't get back to me, so I contacted the plumbers who have been here since September. They could come Wednesday morning at earliest, $1,132 +8% tax. Cousin stopped by last night, let's do it now. We ran to Home Depot, $476, I opened a credit card to save $50. He did it in about 2 hours, $260 to him. Saved me almost $500. Old tank put out on the curb, this afternoon someone took it for scrap metal. (I know, it wasn't a short story!)
Last thing I need now is a new kitchen faucet to be installed. I purchased a new one today. Betrayal - I thought of you and all the work you've been through at your home, and I still don't know how you've survived it all.
Sandy, I'm a lapsed Catholic, but I think you can call for a hail Mary pass at anytime. She was a woman after all, and would cover us all.
I forgot to take all my meds today - allergy, omeprazol, and my osteoporosis med. No excuse for first two, but I thought it was Monday and I only take osteoporosis drug once a week on Tuesday. Or in my case now, on Wednesday.
It's been in the mid to low 30's, the water pumped out of our water heater froze on the side street. But weekend is predicting a high of 20, and a low of 4. BURR!
Hoping you all stay safe. Petite1, and that your brother & bff recover quickly. Enjoy the week.
