Bathroom: eh, floors could use a mopping next.

Towels: in washer with a goodly amount of bleach.

Plumbing (which otherwise hadn’t been used in awhile, thank goodness): FAIL.

Bathroom floors: all nice and bleachy-smelling and fresh now.

Plumbing, after careful tests with small amounts of water over several hours: seems to work peachy fine now, no need to call the plumber yet. The cotton must have had a hairboll.

Me: Um, gee, thanks, old house.  Sort of.

The joys of living in a home with “character” can sometimes be heavily outweighed. By sewage.

Sewage you get when you live in an old place?

plumbing is one of the downsides to “civilized” living — it never seems to hold up it’s end of the “civilized” part!

last night, the man of the house put his can of shave cream in the sink, turned on the hot water, and went into his bedroom. When I realized I could hear water running, there was an inch of it on the floor and that much in the basement, too. He had been watching tv.

Good to know that your plumbing is working! Last year I had the whole place replumbed.

Ooh, that doesn’t sound good. Plumbing should keep itself TO itself, you know?
