More plumbing trouble.

Don’t even get me started…  another LONG day dealing with plumbing issues.  Seriously, not a happy camper.  And while last time it was tree roots on city property, this time it’s apparently an internal problem.  How many plumbing problems can one house have?!?!?  Good grief.  Seriously, we only moved in a couple weeks ago.  GAH!

I love my house, I love my house, I love my house…  I have to keep saying it to remind myself.  Jeepers.  I really do love my house, but how many things can one family be expected to deal with so soon after taking possession before they snap?  Ugh.

Grey Water in our Basement, Tree Roots in our Pipes

It has been a long couple of days.  The water started coming in yesterday morning, and kept right on coming through most of today.  It finally stopped at about 3:00 or so.  And the folks from the city got to work in our basement at about 6:00.  I’m way to exhausted to even think.  So long story short?  We had issues with roots and pipes knocking heads.  It’s “fixed” now, but only after damage to our basement – water and sewage can do nasty things to a home even if they’re only a couple inches high.  It also appears that this will likely be an ongoing problem for the next 18 months or so – as that’s how long it takes for things to “settle” after this type of a problem.  Like I said, this whole thing just has me exhausted… physically and emotionally.
