Water and Toothache—A Dreary Day Hovering

The morning is cloudy, warm 64o oh dear, raining again :long:

Husband went down to check the basement and found water on the floor in the corner.  No matter what we have done in all the years we have lived in this house, hard and long rain manages to get into the basement somehow.  Every lower thing in that room is either on wheels or in plastic bins.

Since son Chris needs our big mop and bucket at his rental house for the same problem, I went out last week and bought a smaller bucket and wringer for us here.  My wrists don’t like using a mop anymore, but I can toss down some old beach towels, then squeeze them in the wringer to get the job done.

I sopped up and poured out two gallons whilst Husband was cooking oatmeal for breakfast.

Then I emptied the dehumidifier container down the laundry sink, replaced it, set the machine to Maximum Dry, then came upstairs to eat.

SubFinder schedule says “No Jobs Available” which is fine with me.  Actually, those words onscreen belay the guilt I would feel if I turned down a job, knowing I was needed at a place where I earn wages.

Sopping up water in one’s own house is working for a different reason.
Plus, my run of antibiotics is through, but there is still a sour taste in my mouth.

I have been able to cut back how often I take ibuprofen, but the toothache is still with me.

Procedure happens on Monday.

I’ll be glad when all this is over.

~~love and Huggs, Diane

    the dehumidifier was quiet, so I went down to check on it at 11am
    the bucket was full already! and it holds a gallon

    then I used the wringer on all the towels, which gave me another 2 gallons to pour down the drain

    Endodontist office left a message on the machine whilst I was in the shower….You Betcha! I’m definitely confirming my appt for Monday!

    2:20pm water in basement covers half the floor in the furnace room

    Sopping towels through the wringer brought forth 10 gallons to pour down the drain.

    Hard work, wiping up water.

    I’m sweating and swearing :\

    When it rains it pours ( a pun was intended lol). I know you want to get the tooth fixed. One more day!
