Just a quick post to let you know it has been crazy here. . . again. Aside from the leak in the master shower (that is now fixed), fixing other grout cracks we have found in the other bathrooms, getting our ducts cleaned and installing a whole house air filter, I am still having an allergic reaction to something. While my hives have lessened a lot (I can finally sleep at night) there is still something that is causing my skin to itch like crazy. It goes away completely when I open the windows in the house or go outside. This whole ordeal has been completely frustrating and mentally exhausting.
While getting my latest post (sneak peak at k's room) ready last Wednesday, the washing machine started gushing water from underneath! Baseboards around that area separated from the wall, the base of a cabinet has water damage and is warped and water dripped down into the basement. Needless to say, I was no longer in the writing mood that day.
Last Friday afternoon (while getting a drink from the fridge) I stepped into a puddle of water. The fridge was leaking! There was a sheet of ice at the base of the fridge, under the freezer drawer (freezer drawer is located on the bottom). Aside from the mental scream I had, growls and a couple of colorful words I muttered, I am dumbfounded as to why we keep having water issues. H has checked the attic to make sure water is not leaking there. It is not.
Today, the washing machine got fixed (hose came loose and had to be re-clamped) and so did the refrigerator (water drain was clogged). Next, we plan on having the air tested in the house to try and figure out what is causing my hives. If it is mold, we will have to start making holes in the walls to locate it.
I am so done with all this water craziness! Let's not even talk about how much this has cost us. . . so far. I am trying to get some projects done, but I feel out of steam (bad pun). I still plan on posting, but I am half bracing myself for the next water leak. Is it karma? Poseidon upset with me? Aquaman turned evil? Do I need to do a water dance? *sigh*
Unless there is another water incident, I am going to try and be back later this week to show a couple of things I have done in k's room. Wish me luck.
Be well and stay dry. ;)
