All week long I have battled the water from the backed up drain. The nasty aroma of copper sulfate drifting through the air. My home smells like a giant fart!
Many trips to the store for various remedies that do not work. Power plungers, routing implements and such lie carelessly about the laundry room that is currently out of commission ...….. I hope that the sign will stop someone from trying to use the washing machines. If not I will be mopping even more today.
A for-real plumber is scheduled for tomorrow!! I am all a tither with anticipation. My guys pulled a lot of gunk and hair out, but it is still blocked. I saw a small sock stuck in the drain pipe thing from one of the washers. You know the hook looking thing that goes into the pipe that leads to the main drain. Of course I removed it, but I wonder why it was there … and where the mate to that sock is.
Yesterday, everything started draining. Slowly, but draining. It was raining when I woke and the problem seems to be even worse today. I dared to shower this morning and flooded the bathroom. The toilet that had been flushing sluggishly is not flushing at all. I was thinking I might as well just pee on the floor like a dog!
Can't wash dishes, can't do laundry. As much as I would like to run away, Linda, you are right that it would still be here when I returned. Besides, HeWho has cardio re-hab until March. I dare not leave him on his own. He is taking a blood thinner and has to be reminded to swallow his pills.
So, here I am. Watching movies and hooking a rug. Too cold to paint the store and I can only imagine what paint and copper sulfate would smell like. I can hardly wait until the plumber arrives tomorrow! Not only am I ready to stop mopping, I am curious to see what has been blocking the drain.
