Best Day Ever

This is me drinking wine at 11 a.m. on a Thursday when I am supposed to be working from home.

This is why:

Allow me to introduce Sebastian, the evil mold monster living in my walls. I am not sure why I'm calling him Sebastian or why I'm referring to him as a monster, but if pretending that I am a princess who is going to kick the ass of a mold monster gets me through this very expensive endeavor then so be it.

A plumber came over today to assess the situation and determine if I have a leak or not. He was a jolly man named Tom who punched a hole in my wall with his fist.

Then proceeded to tell me that there are no water lines in this wall and the leak must be coming from the slab underneath the house. He also called a plumbing buddy to describe the situation and said that its "kinda strange." I so didn't want to hear that.

Thanks Tom, for brightening my day by punching multiple holes in my wall with you big ol' fist and then leaving. Supposedly a leak detection specialist is on his way. Today? Tomorrow? I have no idea. Am I supposed to wait for him? Go back to work? Tom was not very helpful when it came to answers. Apparently, punching holes in walls with his fist is his specialty.

And that is why I'm drinking wine at 11 a.m. on a Thursday when I am supposed to be working from home. Because I probably have a massive leak underneath the slab of my house and only the Good Lord knows how I am going to pay for this.

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can;and wisdom to know the difference.....and super powers to kick Sebastian's ass.

  1. I love that you named your mold monster. And at least this situation got you wine in the morning (which I totally approve of) AND a great thing to blog about, which I was torn between being sad for you and finding your writing style funny :P
