Today has officially sucked...

Just been a long day with a series of problems. Sort of a saving grace that I am home to deal with them, but man, I am wiped out from this. I am sure tomorrow or a few days from now I'll be able to smile about all this..but man I hate days like this.

In a nutshell..
Go to start laundry this morning..water on the dryer and basement floor. Clean up.
Later realize its probably the shower/toilet upstairs. Go and flush.
Come back to basement..water.
Call plumbers. One tells me 140.00 just to come "look". Thankfully I get one.
We poke around..think *maybe* septic heart stops.
I dig out the cover..we check..nope..looks as good as a septic tank can.
Flush toilets on one floor to be sure.
Flush toilet on second floor and we've got water in the basement.
He has to cut the old pipe to remove.
Pipe comes out after 2 diamond blades and about 45 minutes
Pipe has 'stuff' in it. Thankfully tarp and buckets there to catch.
He wraps up his work. I pay him...
He leaves. I clean up the rest of the stuff.
Go to wash my hands in bathroom
Water comes pouring out from under the vanity.
Back on phone..laughing to plumber that was at the house earlier to hide my "i am gonna kill someone voice"
He says he is still *working* and can come down later/today.

I offically hate water today..and I am fast getting to be broke.

Well, look at the bright side! At least your online media hosting is running smoothly.
