I had plans to really kick into gear today. I was going to wake up early (not hard for me, I wake up early most days!!) and then sew for a while before DH woke up. Once he woke up, we were going to get a few small things taken care of, then go out to do some Christmas shopping.

But when I walked out to the kitchen, I heard a strange noise. It sounded like water running. Like someone had left a faucet running maybe. But the kitchen faucet wasn’t running, so I checked the laundry room. Nope. In the bathroom? Nope. Well, there’s a faucet in the basement, but we almost never use it. It wasn’t the faucet in the basement.

It was water running from the ceiling of the basement onto the floor!!!!

Oh No!!!!

Fortunately I know what to do when there is a water leak – wake up DH!!! 😉

Actually, I turned off the main water valve first (and remembered to turn off the hot water heater, too!), then woke him up.

Looks like we have a connection in a water line that has busted.

So we’re waiting for the hardware store to open so we can get parts.

Oh no! I just heard DH use a “bad” word while he was working down there! I better get off here and offer moral support.
