Bubble, Bubble, Toil and Trouble

We recently had our water cut off temporarily (along with many other Sanford residents I am told).  I don’t know if it is related or if it is a coincidence but soon after this our plumbing went screwy.  When we would run the washing machine or the dishwasher, the water would drain out into the tubs and the toilets.  We would hear loud gurgling sounds and soap bubbles would appear…lots of soap bubbles.  This made it very hard to…ummm…you know…flush.  (A certain couple I know is once again saying “thank God we did not get that house” right now.)  Anyway, we tried the liquid stuff for several days and that did not work so we had to have a plumber come out and snake the pipes.  That may work long term or we might have a break down by the street.  If that is the case, it will take a back hoe, taking down the fence, and LOTS of money to make the repair.  The plumber suggested that we only use 1-ply toilet paper.  If you read my post about favorite products, you know that I will not part with my Charmin.  This is where my wonderful and wise mom came in with a head slapper.  Why don’t we just buy the 1-ply stuff for the girls and the good stuff for us?  Duh!  What a great idea! They are the ones that use the most TP anyway.

If Miles ever visits my house, he better keep away from the Charmin!

    Right there with you, babe! We had our plumbing snaked the week my parents were coming to visit from Lafayette. I am still astounded that 20 minutes of work can result in a $250 bill, but whatever.

    I cannot guarantee that Miles will stay away from the Charmin, so I suggest you hide it. Well. He’s a smart pup.

    (If you have to bring in a back hoe, let us know. Maybe we can get a 2-house discount!)
