The Morning After

Actually, it was the late afternoon after. We met with the plumber and a local construction engineer who’s licensed to work in Arlington. This is going to be a very expensive fix-it, involving the possible demolition of a back porch along with trench digging, new plumbing and basement cleanup/sanitation. We’re going to reconnoiter in the next 24 hours to work out a general plan of action that doesn’t involve any more overtime. Holy s***, Batman! At this point I’d like a trench to lie down in, or at least some sand for my head.

Our lives and our back yard are going to be going through some unexpected changes over the next few weeks, with a fix-up bill of between $10,000 to $30,000, depending on what they find once they start digging.

Good grief.
