I meant to post this last week, but I had a series of unfortunate events. Our air conditioner is finally working, but it’s a temporary fix. That aside, we had a week of plumbing problems.
It started when our kitchen faucet started to leak at the base. Every time I turned the water on, it leaked onto the countertop and into the open cracks along the wall and basin. The water attracted the ants that came in through the cracks in the caulk. I went on YouTube to learn how to caulk a sink and patched it up. It’s not as easy as it looks, but I got the job done.
Again, I consulted YouTube and learned how to change a faucet. I was confident that I could do it all on my own. I decided I would change the leaky bathroom faucet too since the water was already turned off in the house. Well, it didn’t go as smoothly as I had hoped. To make this long story short, this is what happened. Over the course of three or four days, I had to make several trips to the hardware store. Something leaked every day. It went from the faucet, to the valve, to the water filtration tank, another valve, the drain pipe, and then the water filtration housing. When one thing was fixed, something else leaked. It was like that old cartoon where the character plugs up a hole and then another opens up and so on. It was disheartening and strange.
Before I was able to fix the last leak, my husband saw a ghost in the kitchen. My kids saw the same thing in their room. As usual, I saw nothing. I blessed the house before I fixed the last leak and waited a few hours to let the blessing kick in. Then I fixed it. I had doubts that it was going to stop leaking but it did. All I had to do was clean a screw for the last leak, but the screw didn’t look very dirty at all. I didn’t think it would solve the problem, but so far it hasn’t leaked again. Knock on wood. Haha.
I told my friend, Lisa, about it and she asked me if our plumbing problems started happening after my aunt’s funeral a few weeks ago. It seemed like it, but I wasn’t sure. She said she had breathing problems since the funeral and she doesn’t have asthma. She also saw curtains at the church moving, but it wasn't the a/c. We discussed a strange lady who was at the funeral that gave us the creeps. She was not a family member, but she was videotaping us. We speculated that maybe she was a witch or a psychic vampire. I told Lisa about a prayer she could use to deflect negative energy.
The next day, I asked Lisa if her breathing problems went away. She thought about it and was surprised that they did go away after she said the prayer. My plumbing problems went away as well. Hmmm. Strange. In any case, it’s reason to celebrate!
What are you celebrating?
