Hmmm…There Seems To Be Something Wrong Here
This is my kitchen sink….can you spot what is wrong? If you guessed there is no faucet you are right. The plumber came but couldn’t fix it so we had to stop in Hastings today to get a new one so it could be put in before our family arrived this afternoon. Of course the replacement had to be ordered and will arrive tomorrow so John hooked the old one back up so we could at least have water at the sink and run the dishwasher. It is floppy but at least I can get water. The new one is supposed to be shipped to us and we should get it tomorrow.
We also had to have our water well fixed this week and it took two trips by the plumber before they got it working like it should. I am not sure why when you have company coming something has to break down, not always of course.
One year we had our microwave quit and the hot water heater heater spring a major leak when we were getting ready for our daughter’s graduation open house. Another time our electricity went off on Christmas Eve and it was snowing like crazy and we had to call the Rural Electric Company and they sent someone out to fix something down the road on one of the power poles so we could have heat. We hated to call and have someone have to come fix it on a holiday but those things just happen and the power company is prepared, even on holidays.
Our family arrived late this afternoon and we are having a wonderful time. We will make the most of the next few days. The grandkids are having so much fun together. They live about 3 hours apart so don’t see each other too often so it is a special treat to be together and a special treat for us too.
