Goodness am I glad this week is basically over! Monday night I started feeling crappy but I thought it was just an allergy attack. During the night I started getting body aches and I realized I was actually sick. I have the worst cold currently but I’m finally feeling a little bit better for more than 30 minutes at a time. I have the most ridiculous cough going on which is annoying but no longer chills and body aches.
Tuesday night we were giving the ladies their bath after dinner which is nothing new and I really didn’t expect any surprises. Of course though I already felt like crap so something else had to go wrong. I was bringing Miranda downstairs and she went running for the living room so I could brush her hair, unfortunately there was a huge puddle in the middle of the kitchen that she slipped in and went sliding into the baby gate we have which freaked her out. Then I noticed that water was steadily coming out of our light fixture and out of a hole next to it.
Yea, not what I wanted to deal with this week. We’ve already had that ceiling replaced once two years ago due to “condensation on our vents” that they sprayed with insulation. I knew that wasn’t the entire issue but housing has never really put in effort at all so water has pretty much been leaking into our ceiling for the past two years. They spent a good 2 hours trying to figure out where the water was coming from, during that time they cut three holes in the ceiling before they got the idea to maybe shut the water off. The supervisor came out and found it within 20 minutes but only because he’d seen it in another house. When the installed the base boards in the upstairs bathroom they thought using nail guns was an excellent idea and pierced the water pipe behind the toilet. The nail has slowly been rusting the whole time and finally broke Tuesday night. This goes along with my theory that something more than the “condensation” was an issue two years ago but what do I know?
So now the flooring in our bathroom upstairs has to be replaced along with the wall behind that toilet, and the entire kitchen ceiling again. They also saw that when it was replaced two years ago they did it wrong and the entire sheet holding up our light basically isn’t bolted down to anything…which means if it got any wetter or they hadn’t stopped the leak when they did it probably would have fallen in. Fantastic right! They’re also saying now that we get to relocate for a couple days to either a furnished house in our development or a hotel while they fix all this crap.
I know I’ve mentioned it before, but I really can’t wait to move! So that’s been my week, pretty awesome. If I’m feeling better this weekend my sister wanted us all to go do something which I think involves a farm but I’m not sure. We also have the idea brewing to go pick some apples soon. Erik informed me yesterday he’s never had apple butter which I think is just wrong and we need to change that.
