Deb: having a plumbing crisis!
Jeff: yes -- what's the crisis?
Deb: sinks in the basement all backed up as is the washer -- OY with every
sock that this family owns in it...water all over the floor of course and into
the middle room -- UGH!!!!!!!!!!!
Deb: On an upnote -- while on the phone with BGE, I made the appointment
for the furnace check!
Jeff: oy yoy yoy
Deb: so the deal is...BGE plumbing will be here sometime between now and
6:00. The guy on the phone suspects that there's a clog in the washing machine
as well because it didn't drain -- so we have an appliance guy scheduled for
tomorrow. THEN, the furnace guy will be here on Thursday. I know there'e really
never a convenient time for these things to happen but I got things to do,
people to see, etc..
Deb: can't even cook for the weekend because I was going to Walmart to buy
a container for the matza balls and I didn't have you pick-up enough onions for
the sauce -- OH SHIT!!
Deb: I'm going to have to call the Anderson's to take Matty to baseball if
the BGE guy doesn't come by 4:50 -- UGH!!
Deb: should be a very pleasant afternoon
Deb: I even called Vern (I think he's a plumber) but he wasn't
Deb: Since you're not responding, I'm assuming that you're tied up on the
phone -- remind me to ask you about the attic
Deb: while the plumber is here, I want to ask him about the kids sink -- I
don't know if you've noticed that the drain is broken
Deb: HEY, I understand...you gotta make the eggs and bacon
Deb: NO worries my love...
Deb: all is peachy keen here at the Sweren house
Deb: life is good
Deb: love you
Deb: call me later
Jeff: sorry, love, not what you had planned for the day
Deb: oh well
Jeff: i'm certain it's from all the underwear i've washed!
Deb: what can I tell ya
Deb: that must be it
Jeff: call you soon
Deb: and the BGE furnace check is called in!
Deb: look forward to it!
Deb: BGE is on the way!!
Deb: good thing too because Vern just called me back and said based on what
I told him that it sounds like the main sewage line -- he recommended not using
the toilet -- aughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
Deb: you're at lunch aren't you?
Jeff: i'm back
Deb: bge is here!! The day is saved -- I here water running!!
Jeff: woo hoo
Jeff: maybe vern was wrong
Deb: it's a gawd awful mess though -- had to move dresser and all the
clothes and then of course, everything piled up high on the dresser -- OY!! Not
on my agenda!
Deb: not sure yet -- you say main sewage line to a plumber and they
automatically grimace -- I'm going down to check now
Deb: ahhhhhhh, all done -- it was the laundry line -- HURRAY!! not much you
can do about it other than what we do. Kudos to BGE for getting here within 45
minutes -- HS!!
Deb: I'll let you know th cost in a minute --
Jeff Sweren: ok
Deb: hey, better than having another technician come tomorrow
Deb: it's unbelievable how fast they came
Jeff: holy crap -- were there parts or just time?
Deb: that's with the 10% discount before you ask
Deb: where ya been baby? we haven't had service on anything for at least
2-years -- plumbers have gone up. It was 90.00 to walk thru the door!
Deb: he had to open up the pipe and then used the electric snake
Deb: deep cleansing breathes my love

Just Another Day in Paradise
Thought I'd share a little snippet from our day. The following instant message discussion happened while I was on a conference call at the office. Enjoy:
