You don't have a picture of yourself reflecting in the bathroom mirror washing the dishes you eat out of?
What's wrong with you?!
Fine. Maybe I'm the one with the problem.
I'm starting to realize why we got such a STEAL of a DEAL on our darling house.
1- some of you may recall the hiddeous odor under the kitchen sink upon move in
..turns out it was piles & piles of rat/opossum nests under our house
...the fix-it guy came & hauled out boxes & boxes of rodent feces
...he then covered the crawl space with putrid chemicals
...me, being 6 months pregnant, went into psycho mom mode & ran away with my fetus & 2 year old to Tahoe for the rest of the week to avoid any developmental complications (you know, things like Avy's toes falling off or Linc being born with 2 heads)
Thank heavens he turned out as adorable as he did:
2- our roof needed to be fixed & somehow it coincidentally took place 2 days, I repeat 2 DAYS, before I gave birth
3- also upon move in, we only had 1 working burner on our stove...& it was a small one.
...we bugged the property management company for WEEKS about getting it fixed, but to no avail
...then one day I was cooking on my 1 small burner & the knob completely busted off
...the only way to get the stove to turn on & off was to head outside & flip the breaker---every single time I cooked
...I called a couple days later & used my harshest outdoor voice to get a new stove
...we got one the following morning
4- turns out we've had carbon monoxide spewing into our garage the past month & a half
...genius roofers forgot to attach something to something from something
(I think it had to do with the water heater)
...in true Atwood Male fashion, Tat & his Dad spotted it & fixed it
...This is my true genius husband:
5- & now to the broken sink
...it's my fault...I'll admit it.
...so I go this itch to clean out my fridge & found lots of pot roast from the previous week
...I guess I overestimated the power of the garbage disposal
...it all got clogged in there...really fast
...Tyler tried to fix it
...my plumber friend Kaari tried to fix it
Kidding. She's not a plumber. & she shouldn't give up her day job of being a socialite, traveling, partying, & eating expensive fine foods because she didn't fix it.
...so I called the management company 4 times & did dishes in the bathroom sink for 6 days.
...most of those times I chatted with the same lady that said,
"Oh yes. I'll get back to you."
...by call #4, I told her,
"You already told me that. I'm doing dishes in the bathroom & that sink will be clogged soon too.
...We got a plumber the next morning.
Really though, our house isn't all that bad.
We have a nice big backyard that's perfect for throwing parties.
And let's be honest...
that's really all that matters.
