More Water Drama

Happy birthday, Lion! I gave him part of his present. The rest is being delivered Tuesday. That’s not all the excitement, though. We had planned on installing a storm door with a doggie door this morning before rain started. It would only have taken a few hours. However, now the aftermath of the burst pipe is coming back to bite us. We need to move things out of the basement area so the landlord can have the damage fixed. Unfortunately, our insurance doesn’t have an adjustor available until Monday. The longer things stay on the wet carpet, the more they will absorb water. Lion has been on the phone arguing with people for over an hour. Again, happy birthday, Lion.

I’m still planning on giving Lion his birthday ride. Planning being the operative word. I have no idea what’s actually going to happen between now and then. If we manage to get some help, I’ll probably be running around all day. I’ve already aggravated my butt muscle somehow. It won’t keep me from riding Lion, but I have no idea how tired I’ll be. Lion has already said he doesn’t know about being ridden. Stupid life intruding.

Of course, all this means I’ll be staying home from work to coordinate cleaning/moving our belongings. Naturally, I won’t be doing the moving. I’m just pointing and answering questions. It’s mostly a waste of time, but it has to be done. I wish I could get the approval to work from home when I’m not pointing or answering questions. Oh well. What can you do?

I’m waiting to hear what the rest of my day entails. It sounds like, from eavesdropping on Lion’s phone conversation, we’ll be waiting until Monday for things to start moving. So I guess I’m on door installation duty. That was already going to be a ton of fun. The water damage has just added more drama.
