Blog Update | Rain Delay

Hello dear frugalista friends!

I've been busy the last few days with water issues. We had a bunch of rain here in my corner of SW Ohio and our sump pump failed again.

Read on to see more...

We've got the fix in the works which involves a completely new system installed by a competent plumber.

You can well imagine our frustration dealing with this again but we're just glad to get to the root cause of the situation. And since our basement is not finished and is just a storage/play area, the little bit of water that came in didn't damage anything and is easily remediated.

At any rate, I just wanted to give you a heads up as to where I've been these past two days. Thanks for your patience!

FYI, my hubs is scheduled for a simple outpatient procedure for his herniated disc this Thursday (because in our family, when it rains, it pours - figuratively and literally!). I'm going to do my best to schedule some posts for later this week/weekend but I may not get my ambitious list finished. Please know I'll be back by late Sunday evening, sharing my weekly deals post round up with all of you.

Thanks for reading, thanks for your kindness, thanks for your good wishes and prayers. I appreciate all of you so much.

My weekly Let's Go Krogering! post will be up soon!


  1. Same often happens in my family. Things seem to all go haywire at once. I hope all goes well with your hubby's surgery. May he have a speedy recovery.

  2. Jackie: Yes, Murphy's Law seems to be the Law of the Land around my house - it's amazing how life's challenges comes in waves. ;-)

    My hubs is well and fine post-surgery; many thanks for your kind thoughts!
