Hello dear readers -- I hope you're having a good Saturday! May I just say that I'm really glad to have the past week behind me? Yep, it was one of those. After a long day on Sunday, we discovered that night that we had a big water stain on the drop ceiling of our finished basement room. My husband removed the ceiling tile, and a big bunch of water poured out all over some papers we had organized for filing. We spent about an hour with a flashlight looking everywhere to determine the source of the leak.
Based on the location, it should have been the dishwasher, but the pipes in the basement ceiling were all dry. Hubby removed the panel at the bottom of the dishwasher, and everything was dry as a bone. I didn't use the dishwasher for a few days because I was kind of afraid to. Then later in the week, we made plans to run it while we were watching the Tour de France; my husband went downstairs, and sure enough, water was dripping into the buckets we had arranged on the floor. Upon removing the dishwasher panel again, we discovered that water was pouring onto the floor. We're thinking one or more of the seals probably busted, and since the dishwasher is 20 years old, we just decided to buy a new one. We had been thinking about doing that anyway; it's really noisy and my dishes had not been looking as clean lately. I hate that we made a mess in the basement, but the up side is that we're getting a brand new dishwasher. It's to be delivered and installed this coming Wednesday. The new dishwasher is just like the one below, only ours will be white.
On Friday, the little boss man had some accidents in the house; he hasn't done that in ages, so I felt like something was wrong. We took him to the vet when Mr. Forest Manor got home, and he has colitis. We didn't have an appointment, so we had to wait a little while. I'm pretty sure they moved us to the head of the line quickly because someone was making quite a fuss and getting all the other dogs stirred up.
I'm not naming any names, but he barked at two dogs, a cat, a rabbit, and three little girls (I'm not making this up). The ladies working at the desk couldn't hear themselves talk when they got phone calls. It was kind of embarrassing.
So was that an exciting week, or what? How was your week? Blissfully normal I hope. :) Thank you for visiting and have a great day!
