At least I got this cool new patch!

I think there ought to be a series of merit badges you can earn as a first-time homeowner.  So when, after you’ve spent an entire day scrubbing bathtubs and sinks and floors, you run a quick load of laundry down to the basement only to discover that all of that water has been forming some kind of horrible-smelling basement bog all day long because the waste main has cracked, you get a little something nice for your trouble.

Thankfully, I have not yet earned the “contractors ripping you off” badge.  The plumber who came out to plug the leak late yesterday was awesome.  A more permanent fix is hopefully coming later this week.

Did I mention I’m also getting my cornice redone?  Because the hurricane ripped part of it down and the wood is too rotten to repair without redoing the whole thing?

It’s OK.  I don’t like having money in my savings account, anyway.  Plus I’m working towards my bankruptcy merit badge.
