Drip, drop, drip, drop

My sister was using the guest bathroom this morning, and I heard the distinct dripping sound inside the wall. I was almost afraid to tell my husband, as he will probably throw his hands in the air and want to sell the House. [smile]

It has to be said, we do have the best plumber in the world. After explaining the situation, he said the noise could be from the hot water pipes expanding and if I didn't see any wet spots on the walls, it could be nothing. He also suggested to have a little experiment by running cold water for a few minutes and checking the main sewer pipe in the basement at the same time. If the pipe is wet, than he would know it's a drain leak, and that would be easier to fix. Phew. Sounds good, right? Except I don't know what the grades of "easy" and "easier" are in the plumbing world.

We found the "missing" house

Thanks to one of our readers, Robert, who identified the house on South Mountain Avenue.

I almost crashed into a tree while looking at it and can't believe I never noticed it before. It was right there. I mean, it looks exactly the same as in this photo. Right?






The funny thing is that I drive by the house almost daily. Which goes to show you just how many things go unnoticed in our lives...

Kids Bath: Electrical - DONE

Electrical - DONE, TOO! Yay!

However, he opened a hole in the wall in the wrong place above the mirror, so now that needs to be patched up tomorrow. That means an extra day tacked on. We really wanted it to be finished tomorrow. We are already 4 days over schedule. Ugh.

I. Need. This. Job. To. End.
