in my happy place.......

We were pulling out of the driveway this morning and we notice water covering our whole driveway.

It hasn't rained here in 2 months I swear. Everything is dry and dead.

So WHY is water covering the driveway? The brand new driveway that we just had re-done?

That's because a pipe burst underneath the brand new driveway that we just had re-done.

Was it on the utility district's side? Of course it wasn't.
It's on our side.

On a Sunday no doubt when you can't find a plumber in the whole state of Tennessee.

We had to cut off the water in order to keep from flooding the streets.

So I told the kids that if you have to go to the bathroom...make it meaningful.

Luckily I have enough bottled water for small things.

In the morning I'll turn it back on fast enough to take a shower.

This just kills me.

This is when I hate being a homeowner. I'd rather be homeless. No, not really, but what scares me even more is....where will it break next?
Is this just a sign of things to come?
*Groan*

So I've been in my happy place all evening trying not to thing about it. "It" meaning "will my homeowner's kick in?" and "What's my deductible?"
