You know what they say, when it rains, it pours. Jack and I have been pretty lucky in the homeowner's department. No real major damages or problems. Just minor stuff. Well, in the past two weeks, 4 minor things have happened all back to back - Can we please catch a break?
Last night my genius self dumped a ton of Spaghetti noodles down the garbage disposal. It all started coming up the other side of the sink and out of the sink in our Master Bathroom. It was totally my fault for putting it all down the disposal in the first place, so I spend my whole evening trying to fix it. The problem won't budge. Roto-Rooter will be out today to "snake" our lines. Cool.
Also last night our kind neighbor came over to inform us that he saw two squirrels run into our attic. I am assuming that most of you know this is not a good thing. Those little rodents chew up wiring and could cause major damage. This will be an easy fix. This weekend with one trip to the Hardware store, we will have the supplies we need to get this fixed. We will be putting up new wire netting in the space they crawled through. We had some there before, but they chewed through it. Damn squirrels. I will definitely be the one watching as Jack goes up into the attic banging around trying to scare the squirrels out before we put up out new net. I don't play that game. No sir.
In the past two weeks, our oven has also quit and our handle on our guest bedroom closet fell off (on both sides, therefore we couldn't get the door open!). The Sears oven man will be out on Saturday. The handle, well, it will get fixed in time. That is a minor problem.
Oh the joys of being a homeowner!
BUT, I am looking on the bright side. It is January 28th and the weather today calls for sun and almost 70 degrees!!! I'll definitely take that!
