Crap.

I got the call from my wife.  The plumber’s visit involved words like “leak” and “underneath” and “slab.”

It looks like at least part of my weekend will be spent with a sledgehammer, a shovel, and a wrecking bar as I tear up a part of my deck, break up some of the patio beneath it, and dig in.  It’s that or pay somebody else $95 an hour to do so.

Woohoo!  (Not.)

  1. Oh man. That sucks. But think of the tan and the biceps!

    I’ve already got the biceps, actually – the tan is a good thing to keep in mind, though. Hmm. Wonder how much of that time I’ll actually be in the shade? And is that a good thing or a bad thing?

  2. At least you get to do something fun. Destruction is always fun. I have to rake the yard today. Wanna trade?

    Uh, sure! Raking is surely less satisfying than the crunch of concrete under a sledgehammer, but at least your task doesn’t involve possibly digging until *sniff sniff* “Is that sewage?”

  3. Damn! That sucks. We had to do that in one of our buildings not all that long ago. Right in the main lobby… digging up a sewer line. Oh yeah, that’s pleasant.

    I think that’ll cover ya for exercise for a while though.

    Well, God knows I need the exercise. I’ve been out of the gym and the pool since before my hell week, and that was a month ago.

  4. *sigh* The words I’ve been hearing lately are:

    boat
    sinking
    cracked
    stern
    tube
    repair
    will
    likely
    cost
    more
    than
    you
    paid
    for
    your
    car
    and
    you
    bought
    said
    car
    brand
    new

    *sniff*

    Ugh. That sucks, sucks, sucks. My problem was a huge pain in the ass, but in the end, monetarily it wasn’t THAT bad.
