some updates...

continued plumbing issues...

so today I decided to do a load of laundry....knowing full well as the water would spin out it would back up into my tub. I forgot it also backs up into the toilet and it will overflow if you are not in there to make sure it does not. Thankfully I was standing there.

this is for the birds. I called the landlord back who is now back in Florida. I asked him "were you ever going to send someone over to check the plumbing problems?" His response:

"I DID NOT KNOW I WAS SUPPOSED TO." followed by giggling. WTF????

I reminded him of our last phone conversation about 10 days ago? 2 weeks? on a Friday night when the tub and toilet were both overflowing and how he had said he would be by the next day with someone to check it out. OR send a plumber on MONDAY. NONE of those things ever happened. I have made do since....trying to time taking a shower or giving Noah a bath or doing small loads of laundry and flushing ever since. It is impossible. The water always gets backed up......we always end up with the same problems. I have plunged....I have used Liquid Plumber...this is a much more serious problem I think than that. One probably requiring a snake or something else.

On a good note, Noah woke me up saying his upper side tooth was so loose he wanted me to pull it out! I DID! YEAH! NOW if we can remove the other 4 loose teeth in his mouth, especially his top front teeth we will be good to go!

Not sure how I will finish the laundry. EVEN if I do it will take all day for the tub to drain out. That means weird toileting till then....

and such is our lives for now...

BUT I will call the tooth fairy too...and...you never know...she may leave something here for you too.

Dear Noah,
So happy you let Mommy help you with your tooth. See how easy that was, now maybe you can get those others out of there so you can chew better.
Love you, keep warm.

WOW, you mean the tooth fairy might leave you money at your home in Greenville and also in Co? Double WOW, that might end up being a lot of money. When I was a little girl the tooth fairy never came to visit me. I don't think she knew where I lived. Love you,
have a good evening.

Well, I would call a plumber, get the drain cleaned out, and when you pay the rent the next time, pay the difference between the plumbers bill and what the rent cost is and include a "copy" of the plumbing bill.

Am also glad Noah got one tooth out.

I didn't see any post telling how nice the water is draining out so I guess nothing is done yet. Oh well.
