Ok, you just are not gonna believe this!
I will start at the beginning…
In late july I moved back to the trailer park where I grew up. I found a beautiful mobile home to rent, with a stunning view of the river, a big yard, and quiet safe streets.
As soon as the weather turned cold, trouble started.
First the furnace stunk when run…but the landlord insisted I was iagining it.
Then a pipe burst under the kitchen, no damage to my stuff.
The a pipe burst under the bathroom, flooded the back end of the trailer, Frankie’scloste, the bathroom, bathrm cabinets, my bedroom, my closte, and the end of the hall.
My bed sits on 2 boxsprings, instead of a boxpsring and a frame, so it took days to get all teh water dried up. It left the floor in the hall by my bedroom door sagging and ruined.
Then over xmas, we were home for 4 days, and since it was really cold, the furnace ran, alot. We stunk of oil, our clothes, hair, blankets, everything. Upset, i told Dad, who went ‘cowboy’ on me and took care of it (he made the furnace guy and the landlord come over and the furnace guy disconnected the unit immediately…the thingy that vents the fumes wasnt venting.)
I had no heat over new years weekend, had to rent little heaters, and the fear of a fire kept me awake for days!
The landlord is going to replace the sagging floor soon, and new carpet to replace the ruined stuff…but before he could, * I stepped on the sagging part, and went right through!!*
Now, this morning, the sewer is backed up, and by whats in my bath tub, I can tell what the folks next door had for supper last night.
I expect the locusts any friggin minute!
I am not upset though…but soon that cup of tea is gonna want to see daylight, and then I might be a little more tense.
So, how’s your weekend shaping up??
