Plumber Today. Thankfully!

I guess my 'hammer' icon doesn't work that well for plumbing-related issues, but it's the best I've got right now. (I seriously need to find time to make some new icons!)

After going shopping (late) to Super Wal-Mart (a 24-hour store) last night, we came home and had groceries (etc.) to unpack. Marilyn mistressmarilyn took a cube of Diet Pepsi to the downstairs fridge and while doing so checked the sink (but didn't mention it to me). Next we discovered that one item (Dawn foam) was open inside a bag and had spilled on several things, so I rushed to rinse it all off in the kitchen sink. Then I carried some things down to the fridge in the utility room and glanced into the sink -- and started to freak out. I went to tell Marilyn, as the water was much higher.

She then told me she JUST CHECKED IT, and it had been the same as earlier!

By that point we'd reasoned out it was the water running in the kitchen sink, but we tested it, just to be sure. Then I bailed the sinks into the toilet until I got the level down. This morning I bailed more, figuring the plumber will need it fairly empty to work -- and it may as well be me doing that work, as I'm not 'on the clock' when I do it. (And plumbers cost enough as it is.)

In health news, I have my appointment with the doctor tomorrow at 11:00 a.m. (Dr. Stevens' assistant just phoned to confirm it. They have to do that these days, or most people simply wouldn't show. Isn't that a stupid waste of her time? What can't people be adults and manage to make their appointments without so much prompting?)

I also work up yesterday morning with something HARD inside my mouth. I immediately thought I'd broken (another) tooth -- but when I examine the object it's dark in color. It turns out that a filling has come out, so I need to get in to the dentist to get it fixed. (When I brushed my teeth before bed I got toothpaste inside that tooth and it about killed me, so I'd better not put it off too long!) I've got an on-going issue with my dentist (Mary) that I'm trying to resolve, so hopefully this will help move that along.

Oops! I've got a work-related thing that I should have done Friday that needs to be done RIGHT NOW. So I'll have to blog again later...
