The no-good, very bad, can it possibly get worse day...
It all started with a pop! After having had a few extra minutes of snoozing, I finally lugged myself out of bed and went down the stairs to my basement. I heard a pop and froze. The mice couldn't have found a way in...could they? (I had seen a mouse the other day when mowing my lawn and now I am terrified that I will see them in my house.) Upon further investigation, I discovered that a small pile of water had acculumuated onto my exercise mats. As I tried to remember what was right above the mats, my heart sank as I hoped it wasn't my toilet overflowing. Anticipating a toilet falling through the floor, I raced back upstairs to find the source of the leak.
I noticed water on the kitchen floor...thankfully it was not the toilet! Brown coffee grounds stained my kitchen sink. Must have been leftover water from the disposal. It was disgusting to say the least. I ran some water and the disposal. NOTHING! The water did not take away the leftover food. In fact, it made it worse.
I opened the dishwasher and found water sitting in the base of the machine. That shouldn't be there. What should I do next? I did the only thing I could think of...call my family!
I'm sure I woke my stepdad up, but he answered the phone and promised to come over to take a look at it.
Time will tell if the sink is finally unclogged and I am excited to go home and try to investigate the pipes myself and see if they are still plugged or not.
