I have been getting my clothes and things ready to put into suitcases for the long journey to the Philippines. Things have been going pretty well . . . . until . . . .
I went down to the furnace room to get something out. Water was on the floor. The last time this happened I found about 1 inch of water all over the floor and into the next room's carpet. I had turned the outside water on and there was a major leak in the pipe . . . water going all over! This time there wasn't as much water. It is coming from the water heater. Wouldn't you know it . . . two days before we go to the MTC and we need a new water heater! We are going to 'milk it' along for a couple of days by turning the cold water off unless we are using the hot water upstairs. This is on the advice of our good friend who is a retired plumber! Luckily I have the best handyman around . . . my youngest brother. He is going to come over and put a new water heater in this week. (Thank heaven for little brothers!!)
Now if we can get out of here without any other repair problems we will be happy!!
