We've discovered a problem with our plumbing.  Something is not draining somewhere and so is spilling out into the basement.  Oh joy.  At first we thought the water down there was groundwater coming in from outside, but we soon discovered it's not.  It's coming from inside, yuck.

So now Tyler is desperately trying to find a plumber to come over and fix it.  Except he's called every plumber in town and no one has answered or called back.  WTH?

Until then our water usage is very limited.  Good thing I got a load of diapers washed before we discovered the problem.  Now, if only to find someone to fix it before I need more diapers.

Le sigh.


  1. Oh no!! My parents had water come into their basement just a couple of weeks ago - what a giant pain :P Fingers are crossed for you!

  2. The plumber is working on it now, hopefully it will working again soon. What a pain is right!!

  3. Hope it's getting fixed really quickly, martina!! What an ordeal.

    We had our water closed for the whole morning and most of the afternoon...it was hard! I couldn't wash my daughter's hands after eating..

  4. It's fixed, thank goodness! So a tree at the side of our house had grown into the sewer line and had caused a blockage? Ewwww!!! Tree's coming out asap. Water back on. Phew!

  5. Ewwww is right! Thank goodness you didn't have sewage come into the house though - I don't think Ewwww would be strong enough :X
    So happy that everything's taken care of!
