Flood update....

The maintenance man came out about 30 minutes after the discovery of our broken water main under our back patio. He took a look around and told us "You shore do have a lot of water."
Ahhhhhhh yes, nothing escapes. He was actually pretty excited about the whole thing and I gotta say it was funny to me to watch him and my hubby stand there and look at the water gurgling up from the center of the earth. Both quiet. Standing there. As men are wont to do. Then he makes a call to the head honcho and it is decided that they will leave it alone until Monday morning. We still have a little water pressure in the house and it's not coming in so everyone should go back to enjoying their weekend.

Do you all have any idea at the amount of water that is being wasted and how much trouble I am having with this whole idea??? The hubby and I asked him if that was really the best thing we could do and he again, looked at the water and said that yeah, this was gonna be a big job. They would tackle it Monday. So today I am doing my Monday cleaning because I know that tomorrow they will be here bright and early, turn everything off, and begin to dig. I'm thinking the privacy fence will have to come down as our back yard consists of a small area of grass and the rest is the cement patio area. I am hoping that I don't have to be home for any of it and can go hang out at Barnes and Noble. :) Wish me luck!!!

P.S. I am thinking of all of my friends In Australia today. May you all be safe and sound!!!

LOL, well I guess not so funny but I could just picture the men looking it over and then walking away until Monday. I so love to head to Barnes and Noble and just hang, especially with no one else with me to rush me out the door. Now if I could just convince my library to add a coffee bar...I'd save a lot of dollars for fabric instead of books!

I read your blog before bedtime and ended up having flood nightmares! Hope it all turns out ok, sounds like a great and fabulous reason to have Monday plans OUTSIDE the home, say maybe at the MALL!
