If my mood stinks, it's because I just found out I have about $6000 worth of repairs to my basement, thanks to some poop water.
Apparently my old pipes couldn't handle a bunch of stuff, including a saturated ground, hair, dirt, some small roots and the pressures of four adults living under one roof. Too much flushing, showering and general water usage have become the death of my basement.
My basement wasn't a lot to write home about, but this goes on the list of "things I never wanted to deal with" ... conveniently happening on my one year anniversary of working in Madison. The people have been so great to me here and I love working here... but I have had a year of some crazy ass (bad) luck. Excuse my French.
I can't tell if I'm ready for some great news or if I'm paying for something I did in a past life. BUT, I'd love to just call it even.
In the meantime... should I take this opportunity to get some woody-looking laminate flooring... or go with basement carpet? What would you do? Any ideas?
