I love being a homeowner! The mere fact that this house is OURS, just rocks! There are times though, that I do actually miss renting. Times like this last week particularly.
I would like to apologize to you, my wonderful readers. I have not been on here lately. Life decided it was time for our first Homeowners curve-ball. You may recall my letter to my oven. It had died on us, and I was very sad. Before leaving on our Yellowstone Vacation, we bought a new one, and had it scheduled to be delivered and installed the Monday after we got back (this last Monday). So Monday rolls around, and we start getting ready for the men to deliver our oven. First though we had to run a gas line to our kitchen. See, Mark and I, we like gas ovens. The beauty of them, is you can still cook on them if you’re power goes out. Not that I foresee that happening a lot, but I like to be prepared. So we bought a gas oven at Lowe’s. While the plumber was here running the gas line, he informed us that the insulation from our Cold Storage Room, probably had asbestos in it. He obviously didn’t test for it, but he strongly suggested getting it out sooner than later. Great, I thought! I went into research mode on the insulation, and scared myself a bit. Then the oven arrived!
While this beauty was being installed, we took the Princess’ outside to wash the cars and play in the wading pool. We had not used our front hose faucet until Monday. The water pressure was really weak through the hose, so we ran it longer than we normally would have. Once we had the oven installed, and the cars washed, I asked Mark if he would get started on cleaning up the vermiculite. A few minutes later he was back upstairs telling me I needed to come look. The floor was flooded. We thought it was just a backed up drain. We were wrong. The basement was flooded from the hose faucet.
