|This is what it sounded like!|
You see, Murphy's law says that if it can go wrong, it will when least expected. And that kinda describes the last 2 days around here.
Thursday night, around 3am, Jae and I wake up. There's this noise. It kinda sounded like the heater was going bad. Of course, I made Jae get up to check on it. He comes back and starts putting on winter outside clothing. Uh... but you can access the heater inside.
Then he tells me that it's not the heater, it's a water leak!
Ok, so the property I have was rather neglected before we got it. Our little dream house had to be completely gutted, stud walls put in, electrical completely reworded (knob and tube wiring isn't legal any more) and most of the plumbing started over. While we're at it, we decided to move a few rooms around, since the only difference was WHERE we put the walls. But it's ok, you see, because we also got a little mobile home on the property too.
Little did we know that this mobile was on the verge of disintegrating. We gutted the "black house" (it's black with white trim, and 100 years old, pretty cool if you ask me) and got to work. And then the rain hit. Well, the mobile leaks... Everywhere.
The pipes in this thing are about to corrode away, and water leaks are getting to be a regular thing around here. Regular enough, that Jae now keeps enough supplies to replace entire water lines. Normally he doesn't have to do it at 3am in the cold, though.
And of course, the money intended to finish up the black house, went into the grains for the horses (and other assorted things) last year. With the drought, the horse market collapsed while prices trippled. Petty cash is, again, long gone. So we do what we can with what we have, and start saving up for the rest of the renovations. I have to say though, I can't WAIT to be out of this PoS, and into my dream home!
So, I some how have managed to misplace an entire day, between weird sleep hours, and not enough time in a day. Naturally, it was LOVELY yesterday, and cold today (damn you Murphy!) but, at least it's not windy. So... dear arena... I have plans for you today.
