"I know for sure that everything in life happens to help us live."

Why do these things always happen at the most inopportune times?? Not that there's really an opportune time for the water heater to start leaking all over the basement floor, but c'mon, it's Christmastime, darn it! I got other things to do!

Lew does almost everything else around the house, but he's totally anti-plumbing. Soooo, we've got a call in to the plumber, and since they always overcharge when they supply the fixtures, I guess we'll have to fight the holiday traffic and crowds and go pick out a new one ourselves. Erg! In the meantime, he's draining the tank so we don't end up with a catastrophe on the newly-finished family room floor or carpet (the basement drain is located under the wall that separates the basement from the family room... but that's a story for another time.)

really can't complain, though. It's only the second water heater in 30-some odd years. The first one lasted 20-some years; this one 12. But still... the timing bites. I don't have time for this stuff!
