Thursday, I can see to write the plumbers check!

     Surgery was completely painless and I am now far sighted in my right eye.  I mean things are crystal clear and my left everything is yellow and dull.  But my close up vision is trashed.  I already wear reading glasses for close up hand sewing and reading but I will have to go to a much stronger prescription as I will not be able to see the computer keyboard, which I could see just fine before the surgery.  Since I always and I mean always wear a pair of cheaters on my head this is no problem. 

     Plumbers update:  Phase one get the kitchen sink running.  Pipe was rotted out the whole length of the house.  I have 4 new holes in my walls.  It was a horrible big job. I actually felt sorry for the plumber. He has suggested putting a hinged flap over one of the holes so we can access the kitchen better.  So I will have Hubby make something pretty.  Cost so far and we still may have to have it snaked $300.00

Next week we start Phase 2:  Shower demolition and moving pipes to inside wall so they are code and redoing shower, fixing water damage to sheet rock and repainting.  $700.00 plus parts. When the sheet rock work is done for this phase we will fix holes in basement.

Phase 3:  New fixtures that I can turn on with my arthritis, new handicap toilet, three handicap bars.  (remember the tub fall)

     Out My Window:  Very hot here, but nice.  The flower boxes outside were gasping and falling over but I had no water today until 4 o'clock.

     I am going to have to take out a loan to get all this plumbing done.  I only have a thousand dollar e-fund and I do not want a home equity loan, I also don't want the CC debt which I just paid off.  But I will figure something out and then have to pay it back.  Do you remember my post on a $1000.00 E-fund is not enough!  Here is proof, but it is a blessing when you are trying to get out of debt.  Also contractors and plumbers will put these things on Credit Cards but you get a good discount if you pay cash.  This just means I will have to put off paying off the Truck a few months.  GRRRRR!

Have a great and productive day!



  1. You have a lot going on! I'm glad the surgery is over and was painless. Wish the plumbing woes were just as painless ;) It will be great when it's finished, though. I know what a difference an accessible bathroom can make! It's a loan worth taking.


  2. Ugh, I'm so sorry about all the plumbing problems :( This is no fun!

  3. I feel like everyone is having plumbing problems lately! That stinks.

  4. I am glad the surgery went well!

    As for the plumbing least there is a silver lining, in that you can take this opportunity to make the bathroom more handicapped friendly since it has to be worked on anyway.
    And you are so right about $1K not being an adequate EF for the long haul, but this is a bad way to find that out!lol

    So sorry that this sets you back in the debt journey but you have a plan to work so you'll be ok.
    I'm pulling for you! ;-)

  5. So glad your eye surgery went well. I've heard from others who have had cataract surgery their close up vision is disturbed.

    As far as the plumbing, it'll be a pain at first, but you will be so glad you have a bathroom up to code. Not a bad price for the entire fix. You'll have it paid off in no time!

  6. Too bad about all of the plumbing expenses. And you're right, these days $1000 doesn't go very far!

  7. I’m glad you’re now slowly recovering from your surgery. But my question is, have you recovered from your plumbing expenses? It’s quite costly for you since there’s a lot of work to be done. Anyway, I hope the plumbers you hired would do a good job so that you get your money’s worth.

  8. Ohhh! That looks like a lot of work, Kim! And if I may add, it’s quite costly, too. Just be sure to check if your plumbers are certified. That way, you are assured that you’re plumber’s check will not go to waste.
