Trouble With Water On The Bay

Well, folks,
I might be gone for a day
or two.
Look what we woke up to~
Looks like they will be ripping up
the ceiling of the lower
little sitting room.
There is a guest bathroom
off the old master bedroom
upstairs and a 2nd bathroom
just above this room that 
are joined back to back.
Where is the water coming from?
Anyone'$ gue$$.
If you look closely you can see
one big DRIP falling.
There were $everal drip$-
tru$t me...
Being a husband means grabbing
the good lasagna pan that I like....
Cute, huh?
Anyone want to come over for lasagna?
Anyone?
Anyone?
anyone?

I will be back when this me$$ is cleaned up...
This is really gonna cut into my
$tarbuck$ budget!

Sorry Diana...best of luck to you... V

Susie said...

Diana, Please believe me , You have my sympathy. A drip can be running along a pipe or beam, before it drips and be coming from a completely different place. I hope and pray it's a simple fix.xoxo,Susie

Oh no!
Leaks are such a pain!

...Life without Lasagna and Latte's?

The green mermaid is going to miss you!
Happy Sunday!

Lucille said...

Horrible, poor you! Not a good thing to wake up to. I hope they are able to locate the root of all this!

Sharon @ Elizabeth & Co. said...

Oh bummer! But don't worry, Starbucks will be waiting for you when you get that all cleaned up! ... And yesterday we had a water heater spring a leak - wet soppy towels here too!

Park Spanish said...

Oh my....and I am sitting here complaining that the sun is not shining....I hate drippy leaks and even more hate paying to have them fixed! Hey...why don't you put your plants under the drip so they get watered? Blessings!

Laura @ Top This Top That said...

Oh no!!! Not that lasagna pan! Good luck with the fix.



Beth said...

OUCH! I hope that the problem is fixed ASAP and you can visit Starbucks again.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Oh no! Well, I hope they can figure out where this is coming from. One small consolation is that thankfully you have a tile floor and don't need to worry about carpet getting ruined, too.

Musings from Kim K. said...

Yikes! Hopefully, it's a quick fix.

Ron said...

Poor you! I hope it is fixed quickly.

Patty Patterson said...

Is it coming from the plumbing going to the bathroom above? A leak in the roof normally only gets the top floor wet. Maybe a drip pan from an air conditioner in the attic? Hmmm.... who knows? But your guys do construction, right? I'm sure they will get it figured out.

Kimberly said...

I have the same hole in my family room ceiling. We need a new bathroom.

Anonymous said...

WELL GOOD NEWS, starbucks just announced they are dropping their prices. IT's all good.

I hate when things break, don't turn on, don't work... yick. It's one of my ugly side flaws. It makes me down right crazy. Here's hoping your leak is fixed quickly and on the cheap.

um... Pizza Hut anyone?
Hugs
Tammy

Daphne Bryson said...

Good Afternoon Diana, Oh, no! This is the worst thing. Your husband is like mine, as he would grab the first thing he thought useful. When I showed George your photo, he said "yes that is a sensible man, if the lasagne pan was the first thing I saw, I would do the same." Mmmmmm.
Hope you get it sorted soon.
Best Wishes
Daphne

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I sure hope everything works out fine. I'll be right over...with a Thermos of coffee! Sweet hugs!

ℳartina @ Northern Nesting said...

Oh no Diana!! I hope this get's fixed quickly for you!

Anonymous said...

Crossing my fingers that everything gets fixed right away. Ugghh...water leaks...trouble makers. TOTALLY feel your pan pain, my husband does the same thing. ;)
Taking a blogging leave and making some changes, but will continue to enjoy visiting.

Off to church!
Warmly,

Shirley said...

Good Morning Diana, I am sorry that you have a leak and it isn't fun to clean up. My dil went through that yesterday. They were lucky they had a friend, who does plumbing that fixed it for them if they had to pay for a plumber on Saturday expensive. It was a tight spot to get to. I keep a small plastic bucket under my sink in case I need it. Hopefully it is something simple to fix. Try to have a good day. Hugs and Prayers from your Missouri Friend.

Donna said...

I'm so sorry about your leak, Diana! I guess the good thing is you don't have carpet in your sitting room. Still, it is no fun shelling out $$ for those unexpected expenses. Hope it didn't ruin any furniture!!

Ceekay-THINKIN of HOME/Doublewide Decor said...

Oh No....I hate when things like this happen. Good luck with the repairs, and the Starbucks withdrawal.

Ann@A Sentimental Life said...

OH NO!! I hate water problems! remember my $$$$ water line broke at both houses last year. In my thoughts!

Dixie Delights said...

So sorry - what a bummer :-( Your lasagna looks delish :-)

Kelly said...

Well, when it rains it pours! (Sorry, I couldn't resist the pun.) Hope you'll be back to normal soon. Ceiling repair work is messy and no fun!

20 North Ora said...

So sorry! Don't you just hate when things like that happen and take your money you had rather spend somewhere else? On something that can be seen?

Judy

Mindy said...

Oh no!!! That's awful. I'm sorry you're knee deep in a me$$. Hopefully the fix is quick and not too much of a financial hit.

NanaNor's said...

Thankful you were home when this happened and not on vacation. Hopefully your man will find the origin of the leak and fix it asap. I had something like this happen once when hubby was gone-I freaked but was able to deal with it myself and it never caused any damage.
Hugs, Noreen

Ellie VanCaster said...

What a mess and just when you were trying to get ready for listing. If you need anything just holler-it will only cost you a piece of your lasagna. ;-)

Tete said...

I am so sorry and that looks like a huge mess to dry wall, too. Not your typical flat ceiling at all. Hope you can find it quick and get back to normal really soon.
I will pass on the Lasagna- nice pan, by the way.
I just read online this morning that Starbucks is dropping its prices. Must be your guardian angel running interference there. She's got your back and must have been a three pot a day gal herself. Hang in there and I am praying you and John through this. He's gona need a lot of help, too, if Jettie overnights that baseball bat.

Teresa said...

That does not look like fun! And here I was feeling bad because the exhaust went out on my hubby's car on the way back from looking at ice shoves yesterday. What a noisy drive home! lol. But I hope you can get that fixed fast and not break the bank. You sure haven't had a great start to the new year!

Dewena Callis said...

I'm so sorry! There go all your plans, not to mentions all your $$. Blessing and much sympathy during the whole process, Diana.
Dewena

Gayla said...

I'm really sorry! Hope it isn't as bad as it looks! Oh, no! Not the Starbucks!! Lol.

Mary@mydogsmygardenandmary said...

Diana, so sorry about the leak. You gotta love those husbands, they mean well. Hopefully is won't be $$$$$$.
Just go to Starbucks and relax.
Mary

must love junk said...

Not good! I hope it will get fixed quickly and somewhat cheaply (one can hope...)
Susan

Nancy @ The Headmistress said...

Oh, dear, Diana. I'm so sorry! Hoping that it won't cost an arm and a leg...and your Starbucks visits :(

Blondie's Journal said...

What a shame. I hope it's an easy fix it job but it never seems to work out that way, does it? Good luck.

XO,

Stephen Andrew said...

Ugh! Water where it's not supposed to be is the worst!

living from glory to glory said...

You need a plumber! And a Starbucks gift card pronto!!
Praying for ya...
Blessings, Roxy

Hope Filled Living said...

Diana,
Gotta love those husbands and their ingenuity! Do you remember the mess in my dining room last year? I blogged about it. Water came pouring in and ruined 150 year old plaster ceilings and walls and onto the antique built in china cabinets and floors. We had to move out of the whole downstairs of our house. Perhaps if your insurance will cover it, you can get a fresh, new room!
It sure sounds like you could really use your beloved Starbucks right now, though!
xoxo.
Mary

Karen Frost said...

Oh, that is awful! I hate when things like that happen. Of all times, when you really, really need Starbucks. And Lasagna. And a good clean bath towel. I'm so sorry. :( Hang in there. xx

Meredith @ The Laundry Can Wait said...

Oh no! {I loved all the money signs as S's.} The only good news is you have some good blogging material. Then again, you always have good material to write about so I guess this is all just bad news. :( What a nightmare!!

XOXO,
Meredith

FABBY'S LIVING said...

It's Sunday now and I'm already exausted, lol!! I'm so happy you liked the stupid teapot I got crazy over, ha! Have a pleasent week.

Maureen said...

One of life's great horrors is the looking up at the sound of a drip and dreading what it will take to make it go away. You have my most sincere sympathy! It's always something, isn't it?

Gina said...

Oh no! Leaks are such an annoyance. I hope this one gets fixed up quickly!

Faye said...

Oh No! That really stinks! I hope it's fixed soon and that it's not a lot of work and $$!

Katie Clooney said...

So sorry for your troubles, Diana, but you always make me laugh. You have the greatest sense of humor! Hope things dry up soon and it's a simple, cheap solution!!

Ocean Breezes and Country Sneezes said...

At least the pan was empty! LOL!!! Hope it's not too costly, a girl needs her coffee after all!

Cindy @ Dwellings-The Heart of Your Home said...

Oh no!!! So sorry to hear this...
We had a leak from out upstairs bath coming down in the guest room below it. If it weren't for our puppy going to that room and barking ... it would have been a LONG time before we realized it! Thankfully, we caught it early...good puppy!!!
Blessings,
Cindy

Oh no, Diana. I sure hope this is nothing major or expensive to fix. I'd have lasagna with you, no matter where your pan has been.

Thistle Cove Farm said...

How do men know which item you DON'T want them to grab? It must be a special talent???? Hope it if repaired quickly and does not cost as much as feared!!!

Jettie said...

OOPS, grab a bucket and get that lazyonia pan outta there.

Rebecca Nelson said...

All I have to say is UGH!

Our downstairs toilet overflowed on Mother's Day morning in 1993 because we didn't have a check-valve. We were experiencing torrential rains and when the toilet was flushed the entire 1st floor gushed with nasty, filthy sewer water. It was a nightmare...happened after living here only 6 months.

Steve put in the valve and we never had another problem. I sooo hope you find the problem. Water ruins sooo much!

xoRebecca

Missy George said...

I hope that's the only budget it cuts in to...Hope it's a simple, quick fix.

Ruth Kelly said...

I usually grab a bucket for a leak but thank heavens there have been none lately. We did wake up to a blanket of snow this morning.. Ugh, I'd rather have rain for spring.

Stephanie said...

Oh no! Hopefully all goes well.

Hugs to you,
Stephanie

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Oh no! I hope it's not too big of a fix. About the lasagna pan...looks just like something my hubby would do!!

PURA VIDA said...

Thanks for your sweet comment on my dining room...how lucky was I to find that table?!! Oh my goodness...I was so giddy coming home with that treasure! I mean seriously, how often do you get a $1700.00 table for $250 bucks?! :) I smiled all the way home...shoot, I'm still smiling! :)
Hope you get your mess cleaned up soon!

Oh No Diana, I am so $orry this happened. Not fun at all and the me$$ of fixing it.
Take care, I hope all goes well. I think I'll pass on the lasagna this time. But saying a few prayers for you.
Hugs, CM

pink*cherub*moon said...

Oh no! Oh I hate water leaks! We had to have our entire house re plumbed because we had that polybitilaine pipe and my other house had it and AI had to have that one replumbed as well! I wonder what is causing your leak? Oh no, not the Starbucks budget! Couldn't you do without toilet paper or laundry soap or something? LOL! I'm sorry you have to go through this. Hope it's resolved soon and not too expensive! Hugs, Leena

Anne said...

Oh, Goodness, Diana!! I had this happen in my sweet "vintage" house a few years ago...the bedroom ceiling fell(okay, just about a square foot of it, but it was plaster and it SOUNDED like the whole thing...)because of a bathroom leak above...Sigh...sorry, my Dear!
Hugs,
Anne

Miss Kitty said...

bummer! but honestly, repair work should not cut into the Starbucks budget! Hope they can find the cause easily and the fix isn't too painful in the pocket.

Decadent Housewife said...

Nana Diana, Hello,
Just found you and decided to join after seeing this.
I have one of those clever husbands too - soup pots, roasters, tupperware - all of it can be found sequestered in his garage serving up concoctions not originally intended.

Looking forward to reading here.

Trish :)

SavannahGranny said...

Diana, If you want to run away, get outta town for a few days or weeks, I'll put the coffee on. Starbucks, no less.

Babs said...

What an aggravation! I'd say this is latte time...or Starbucks of your choice. :)
Hope the repairs don't cost too much. Hugs, Babs

susan@avintagefarmwife said...

Oh girl! I FEEL YOUR PAIN! I hope you don't have to spend the next 8 weeks with your house in an uproar. We are still not totally finished with all our project and it has been months. GRRR!
