I didn’t get it at first so I laughed extra.
I have water damage. When it was first identified the so-called expert thought replacing the damaged door jambs would be enough since that’s where the damage was. No one was thinking at that point! Argh!!! I tested it with the hose and water continued to leak in.
When you get closer you can see where the water is seeping over the threshold. This particular view is exaggerated because it’s raining buckets and my gutters are down (to be replaced) but this is part of what’s been going on for quite some time.
If you look here the carpet tack will show you just how long.
I’m over the point of having people out to look at this. People have been out. Now I’m waiting on my new door and replacement gutters. The damage happened basically because the gutters were too small and weren’t set up with something called a gusher guard. I’m going to skip all the technical stuff beyond that. This sort of thing happens. I don’t know that I could have stopped it. I mean, I didn’t know about the gutters. So, I’m into this about $1300 so far and that’s before someone pulls back the carpet. But you know, the carpet can dry and right now I’m all about stopping the leak.
So about the wrist… I was planning on seeing an acupuncturist [is not covered by insurance] before anything further with my surgeon but as you might imagine, financially that plan is out the window. I’m going in for physical therapy and tests from here with it. I’m recovering from that blasted needle procedure but still not sewing. Not even short stints of straight lines. I can read and do chores though and that’s good enough.
Just as an aside, I’m not turning this into a homeowners insurance claim in case you’re wondering about that. I’d prefer to be claim free until something really serious happens. Say, like… my water pipes that run through the ceiling burst. That would be a claim.
Not the surprise I was talking about in my previous post, friends. Not even close!
Until the next fun-filled update…
I had the cyst removed Wednesday. My doctor doesn’t think that’s the fix. Likely going back for more tests but we’ll have to wait and see. I don’t present with typical symptoms of carpal tunnel but he’s leaning in that direction since there’s no where else to lean and by the way he’s not a very good leaner. He wants it by the book. The guy was a real downer to be honest.
So the clock.
I can only think about what I can do now. That’s good enough. I think I can be happy with bits of time, lots of rest periods and straight lines. Behind the scenes I have been. It’s not like nothing at all is going on. One of these days I’ll surprise you.
Until surprise day…
