Since I last posted, the plumbers have been here 5 times and they are coming again today. A new problem crops up each time they are here, but they assure me they will be done today.  Yesterday from 9 to 6 there were carpet guys tearing up the carpet, a drilling crew, the insurance adjuster, the engineer who was camped at my kitchen table with his computer most of the day.  I had to take everything out of the china cabinet and find places to put it so they could move the cabinet. I wrote a long post yesterday, amidst all the drilling and pounding, but when I went to post it, blogger ate it.  So, a catch up here, if you're at all interested.  The photos tell the story, somewhat. I tried to put together a cohesive timeline.  At one point yesterday I lost it, and cried for a few moments, right in front of the adjuster and the engineer.  But I got over it. I went to sleep at 8 last night and slept till 5, which was nice for a change.  I've been sleep deprived throughout this entire month.  A lot of the time Hub has been able to be here, but I have been dealing with these men myself, most of whom are nice, but there have been a couple of them who, if I say they were horses A's it would be an insult to the horse!  The carpet installer came back this morning to retack the carpet and move the china cabinet and table back. The plumber told me he thought they would be able to close the trench today.

Plumbers, January 25th and 28th

This drilling and extracting of soil samples was repeated in 3 other rooms, and twice in the garage. The boxes you see in the 4th photo
above are mostly books and art supplies that I had to get out of the area in the family room so they could get to that corner. Hubby had a huge telescope there also that had to be dismantled. And the last photo I'm going to show you is all the STUFF in the living room. We had to move things from the other rooms so they could do this drilling. Then I am going to try to post this because I am having serious issues with blogger today. I think I need a nap already. What a week this has been.


  1. Please notice, since I am so befuddled, I forgot to even title this post.

  2. I went to look at your earlier blog & there was none. You've explained why, I think. It disappeared. OK.
    What a nightmare pictorial!!
    Has the homeowners' ASS-ociation written you again?
    Hope to see you this weekend.

  3. You've really got your hands full with this problem! I hope they're able to get everything fixed before too long so you can get back to normal. It must be so unsettling to have all this going on in and around your home.

  4. omg, what a trial you are going through, I hope it all turns out for the best.

  5. I am no plumber but it sounds like there isn't enough fall to the plumbing lines and that they aren't large enough to take the volume of water or effluent.
