At least that’s what Tom (from Tombrarian) said to me today.
This is completely not library related – but I need to vent – feel free to read on – or not.
Yesterday I went into my basement to do a wash and found that my basement was flooded – not with water from the rain – but with sewage from the power room we have down there. Turns out my 50 year old house has never had the sewage pipes cleaned out – and now my basement is a disaster area. I’ve had 4 different sets of workmen in my house today – the township (here to tell me it’s my responsibility and not theirs), the sewer people (to clean the clog), the cleaning crew (to rip apart my entire basement – walls and everything to sanitize), and a plumber (to rip out the bathroom fixtures so that the cleaning crew can come back and finish their work).
The smell in my house was horrible as you can imagine – and my semi-finished basement has been restored and it’s unfinished original self. This fiasco is going to cost me more than I want to think about to clean and rebuild.
This is how I spent my first day after vacation – not at work – at home with men coming in and out of my house. Oh! And I forgot when I was with workmen #3 my puppy decided to jump up on the couch and climb onto the TV tray I had out and ate my lunch! Can you believe it??!!
Well that was my day – hope you all had better ones.
