The Revenge of the Sump Pump…

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.

About Ms. C

I teach at NDSU...but I remain a student of life with all the enthusiasm that entails. My favorite saying is, "Sometimes you have to take the leap and build your wings on the way down." In the new forty that is what I am doing...building my wings.

    I feel your pain, in fact I felt it twice as a homeowner with a furnished bottom level.
