Katie, take care of those hands! I agree you should get some antibiotic ointment on them and maybe if you have to work can you where gloves?

Stacy, I am so sorry about the news regarding your son. It sounded like he was doing very well and this certainly wasn't his fault.

You are both in my prayers.

Mikki, I've learned over the years to keep my mouth shut when it is issues with friends. However, with my own spouse I've learned that what I shut up about today, I will pay for tomorrow. So it is best to have it out now, because if you (or he) let it simmer for a week or a month, it will not get better, it will get worse.

Thanks everyone. Hands are feeling much better. Not looking too great, and hurt much less than they did. Going to try to be easy on them tomorrow.

This is so true, Claire. No matter how much you try to ignore or forget, things do keep simmering and they will eventually boil over. Also, if you deal with things honestly before you've been stewing over them for weeks or months, it's easier to be kind when telling your spouse something that will hurt or disappoint them. You know, there are ways and ways to be honest and some of them aren't so nice.

Okay, everything has been going "swimmingly" and now we are ankle deep in water due to an unknown sewer problem who knows where.

I had to almost drag our strata manager over here to see that it "wasn't" an in-house problem. Our next door neighbour was having it too and then when the manager did come, he saw that all four lower suites have the problem. He checked all the upper suites but it isn't there. He didn't phone the city to see if they had a problem and now we don't know where he is.

DH has been working non stop using a small shop vac and small carpet cleaner (green machine) to try and get a handle on it. I am helping as much as I can which is very little.

So, no we have no running water, and water all over the place. We had to barracade the dogs in the bedroom and we don't know if anything will be done before morning.

Update: the water was contained to the two bathrooms and our storeroom which has a drain. It is now sort of under control, but our carpets did get some soaking and we have storage stuff all over the living room.

We have had no supper and are not sure when or what we will get.

Sorry, just needed to scream and didn't want to do it in front of DH because he is working so hard.

oh dear, i'll bet it is a mess. i once had a toilet that overflowed. was flushed before we went out. good thing husband went right back after he drove me to work. it had already flooded the apartment soaking the carpet . it was leaking through
to the apartment below us and coming in round their lights over sink.

it took a week , with lots of fans to dry out the carpet, then they still had to replace it.

amazing how fast water goes everywhere. hope it gets cleaned up soon.

babe

Thanks, Babe.

We just found out that they don't believe it is a City problem and so they are shutting off all the water in the building (12 suites) until morning and will "deal with it then". They say ours is the worst hit, but I really don't think he realizes just how bad it is in here...and he has been in four times!
