I've decided that having your basement flooded with sewage is NOT the best way to celebrate Christmas or your birthday. Just in case you were thinking of doing that next year... don't.
But I could have handled all of that if everything was fixed and we were done with the whole nightmare. Really.
This morning my husband (the chef in our family) put our Christmas turkey in the oven and we began to prepare for the Christmas dinner that we missed.
I got in the shower and admired our new non-poop covered shower curtain that we just purchased yesterday and then I heard it... the toilet started making the same sounds as before. The water from the shower was not draining.
And the toilet stopped flushing.
The plumbing was NOT fixed. We are back to a bucket for a toilet and let me tell you... I am not happy.
Oh no I am not.
The turkey is cooked but it is not getting eaten because I am too busy trying not to have a nervous breakdown.
I may or may not have started sobbing and saying things like "the landlord is not allowed in our house again to try and FIX anything - he has to call a professional this time! I am NOT DOING THIS AGAIN."
My husband may or may not have tried to calm me down by making me tea.
So the landlord has been called. We are waiting for a plumber who had better have some sort of certification.
I let you know how it all turns out.
*UPDATE* Dec 31st - A real certified plumber came and fixed the issue today! Yay! 3 Cheers for plumbers!
So long 2013, don't let the door hit you on the way out!
