I clearly have some bad sump pump karma. I have had two sump pump failures in less than seven months (and yes a new sump pump was installed between sump pump failure one and sump pump failure two). The first time it was a total deconstruction downstairs – walls, carpet, flooring, baseboards, doors, vanity, toilet – uggh! This time we may be able to keep the vanity and the flooring – otherwise it is pretty much a sequel…Sump Pump Failure II – The Revenge of the Sump Pump.
I don’t really want to live this movie again. My stamina is waning and I can’t even utter the words “sump pump” without hissing a bit. Tonight my computer is going back up to that little corner of the kitchen table for an indeterminate period of time and with it will go a good chunk of my patience.
Perhaps tomorrow I will be in a better mood, but for now the score is Sump Pump-2, Carol-0 – and I am being a really poor sport.
Day six hundred and fifty-one of the new forty – obla di obla da
