Water Woes

January 22nd, 2007 at 05:07 pm

The new pump is in and the water is back on.

...and now my bathtub has stopped draining.


The pump man came out last week and installed the new pump...I had no idea what was involved with that...but they have to actually pull out the tubing and wires and, depending on how deep the well is, it can take a while...(at just under $100 an hour)...ours, 480 feet + pump and parts = $1600 guys...*ouch*

and on the end of that last tube is the pump that needs to be replaced...only, when he got to the last tube---all that was there was...well, the end of the tube and a couple of loose wires (no pump)... I guess that explains why it wasn't working!

Now...the dad-blarned bathtub has stopped draining...which probably means a plumbing bill. *$&*#(&%*

Tomorrow is Papa's 74th birthday and he requested Olive we are taking him to eat tonight. He may not be here next year and I want to make this memorable for him! (and us) I am sure we will have a wonderful time!

H and I (I am leaving off the 'D' for now as he is not entitled to 'darling' for a continue to work on things. It truly is a day at a time process. But it is getting a little easier---for a while it seemed like I was learning something new and painful daily...but I am starting to believe that this is behind us and we can heal and move least, I really, really hope it is.

Cold? Heck yeah, I can see my breath INSIDE my house today...brrr.

    I put a brand new well in my home as well, but it cost me $4,400.00, paid for in cash.

    I have some Olive Garden coupons I meant to send to you!
    Flirt with the plumber when he comes. It can't hurt!!

    The D in DH doesn't always stand for dear or darling. I can think of a couple D words that might apply in your situation.


    Ah, and the other one, rhymes with spam, LOL.
