She developed a slow leak this morning. I swear she heard all the chatter about having her replaced and is heartbroken-shedding tears.
I left work early because I did not trust my daughter to tell me the truth about the damage. The plumber was conveniently across the street and came by to assess the damage. They are currently installing a new one!
Let us hope the other appliances don't feel slighted and throw their dummies out of the pram!
Timing is everything. I had my taxes done earlier this week and am getting a refund. No deep pockets for this off budget expense.
