TODAY’S NEWS AT MY HOUSE
Today’s news at my house is a bad news/good news situation.
My long thick hair has come with challenges my whole life and one is occasionally stopping up shower drains.
Always in the past, it has been easy to unclog the drain ourselves…however, recently we faced a clog that would not move.
So, we called in a plumber who shoved the “snake” in so hard that he broke the P-trap.
Prior to this, I had no idea what I P-Trap was…I have linked to the best explanation I can find.
I might have guessed in the past that a p-trap had something to do with a toilet…not a shower or sink drain.
It turned out that the P-trap is a pretty big deal and VERY costly. However, since the plumber broke it and not us, we received money to cover it.
That was when several people said…as long as you have that money you should upgrade your master bath…it needs updating badly.
If we ever faced selling the home, we would have needed to do work in the bath anyway…so I say all of that to share today’s news at my house.
Bad news: Major unexpected project at a difficult economic time. Good News: I will have a new bathroom!
We are about to begin a big project so everything in the bath and in our closets had to come out over the weekend and now live in the front room!
I will take “before and after pictures”, and share anything I learn along the way as I did when we remodeled our kitchen.
Today’s New Headline: Listen closely if you are told a P-trap is broken! We needed to cease using that shower immediately.
I kind of felt bad that my hair started the whole thing!
