Joys of Home ownership  
Today I had to stay home in the afternoon for the telephone repair person and a plumber. The phone repair was luckily a matter of replacing something outside that apparently got wet in the storm a week ago (I had thought maybe it was that lightning strike, but it was just water apparently). That was taken care of by the phone company.

The plumbing issue won't be free. or cheap. *sigh* We were hoping it was just some tree roots blocking things up, but no. There's a hole and partial collapse in one of the pipes which has to be replaced. They're gonna have to dig a big hole in my front garden. We don't have to do it right now, but good lord that's a lot of money. I'm glad we have indoor plumbing and all, but it sure is expensive when it goes wrong.

Ugh! Stupid plumbing: I remember at the old house all the problems we had with roots and such at the lower level. That was bad enough but when we had to replace the entire stack inside? Goodbye savings!

Here's hoping your repair is simpler and less expensive than they think.
