Remember when we did the renovations of the upstairs bathroom? It looked quite sharp and though hubby had never gutted and renovated a bathroom before, he did quite a good job. The plumber connected the bathtub and shower, but hubby did the vanity and sink. I was quite proud of him and everything worked great.
The other day the tenant told us that the taps on the sink weren't working. If he turned them on, water was running everywhere. Hubby checked it out and the sink needed new taps. He went and bought them and today he installed them.
About an hour later, I heard dripping and when I walked into the living room, there was water coming through the tiled ceiling. I called him and he went upstairs right away and corrected the problem. Trouble is, I guess about a gallon of water had gathered on that ceiling tile and when hubby touched it, it came crashing down and water went everywhere.
My first reaction was OMG! That poor laminate floor. When the Christmas tree stand leaked, it was flooded and now again today. They tell you not to get water on laminate flooring, but such is life. We can't always control things as we'd like. So hubby mopped it up and cleaned up the mess. He put the ceiling tile outside to drain and luckily by 6pm tonight, it was dry and ready to be put back up. Poor hubby. He had a difficult day for more reasons than this. I felt really sorry for him as he's been trying to do everything around here while I've been sick. He's done a fine job but enough is enough.
It all turned out for the best. As far as I can tell he got the water off the floor quickly enough that it didn't do any damage. The ceiling tile seems to be fine but probably only because of his quick action to take care of it. Now, he is sleeping peacefully. At 11pm, he will get up to get ready for work and then battle the snow that is falling. He sure has a lot on his plate right now.
In other news, Brandon, Jordan and Michelle didn't stay sick long. They recovered quickly. The boys have been in school all week and Michelle went back to work as well. Take care and try to stay away from this nasty bug that is going around. I am doing a bit better each day but am still far from well. I'm hoping that by early next week I've made a complete recovery.~Blessings, Mary~
