Nobody's Opinion

Nobody Updates:

Well, Hey!

I just wanted to give everyone an update, as I write my blog in my mind everyday, anxious to comment on whatever because there is SO much happening, but right before the 4th of July weekend we had a “sewer fullness” happen in our basement, which we have been working on to bring into a beautiful new level of our home for over five years. We did everything ourselves…drywall, rugs, decor, woodwork, new bathroom, and…..spent lots of money and NOW we have to start over and spend more.

We do have insurance, but you know that goes.

It was mostly destroyed, by the fact that our MAIN water and sewer pipes underneath the house are very old lead cast iron pipes and the whole basement floor has to be dug up and new pipes put in. Brand new carpet just laid this year….ripped out.

I have memories of dragging it all down the steps in huge rolls.

Of course, being the holiday weekend, we had to take the first people we could get to come out. Oh, they were IMPRESSIVE and I’m sure my neighbors who are all liberals were gleefull at the thought of the TRUMP supporter getting her rightful due! “It’s about TIME!”

I won’t go into details, but so far, only 5 feet of pipe have been installed. The basement had to be professionally cleaned, and that’s good, but we can’t use any water…clothes, bathrooms, etc. LOL.

Let me tell you, the indoor toilet should have it’s own holiday. And in every store I go I keep hearing the Joni Mitchell song “Don’t it always seem to go, that you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone.”

Except she was talking about some guy and some parking lot.

My local gas station is starting to think I’m a drug addict because I’m always in their bathrooms, and to make matters worse it’s 102 degree here…typical for July…anyway. God forbid it hits you at three in the morning because that’s when the car jackers LOVE to attack you at the gas stations.

I tell my husband, “Don’t worry, NOBODY would want me or that ugly car.” Everybody lies to you on quotes, what they said, what they Will do, then change their minds, and it’s to be expected now.

We are still dicking with insurance, contractors, and basically, we also smell pretty bad. Ha!

Sure, I’ve been devastated, but I tell myself it COULD have been a fire, or a tornado, or a visit from the FBI.

I’m hoping to write by next week. But then again, Nobody Knows what will happen next.

Trying to keep my sense of humor…God bless Mr. CRAPPER.

  2. My Dear Joyanna ~ Just wow! I feel for you. My dh says if you have a sewer back up insurance rider, they shouldn’t be jerking you around; he says to contact your state insurance commissioner and provide documentation of your coverage, and a statement of what the insurance company is saying/doing to not “restore the damage to pre-flood condition.” That should get you some action! Y’all are in my prayers.
