A Day in the Life of the Beisel Family

So, our basement is flooding for the second time because of backed up sewage pipes. I thought that this deserved a blog. As I write, water is bubbling up from one of the overflow pipes, and from the downstairs shower, thankfully this time it is pretty clear. This happened a few months ago and it was not so clean looking, if you catch my drift. The plumbers are out in the manhole trying to clean out whatever it is that is making it back up. It seems like things like this happen to us all the time. We rarely have a week go by where our attention is not consumed by some abnormal event.

One word of advice to families with kids. Don’t buy “flushable” wet-wipes. Oh well, we needed to clean the basement out anyway.

    Our kids know the plummer by name.

    “Mommy, Bud is here! Bud is here!”

    The worst part about this whole deal was that there has been a problem for a week. The plummers came on Monday and had to come back another day with different equipment to go through the manhole. So they said they would be back the next day. Tuesday comes, no show. Keep in mind, during this time Amy cannot do any laundry because if she did the basement would flood with water. Neither can we run the dishwasher–too much water. So Wednesday comes, they cannot come because it is raining. Thursday comes, still raining. Now it is Friday and the sun finally came out. Think about it for a minute: five people in the family, no ability to do laundry. Needless to say, my wife was at the end of her wits.
