Hi Friends......let me tell you about another one of my crazy days....I swear you can't make this stuff up and it only happens to me........And after this whole mess is all said and done......And I am in Columbus I might have to be committed.

So....Today was our Okc home inspection and our house was built in the 80s and I am aware of the problems. The couple signed the contract with me saying "Seller makes no repairs or treatments" but if this inspection is too much they can back out. So I am already on edge and had the house spotless since this is the first time the couple will come back since seeing it!
Ok, Stay with me here.....

Ok......it is 7:30am and the inspection and buyers are set to arrive at 8:30..............And as embarrassing as this is I am a sharer.....so my toilet stops up............I do not know how to plunge? I just don't so when I tried it was tragic......it overflowed on me and it is now 7:40am so I call my Mom screaming and she arrives at 8:00am and we put drano down and then I plunge again................and it is now 8:15 (T-15minutes) and well...........it didn't just over flow.......is flooded my bathroom.  (I am laughing now as I write this but only b/c I am crazy) And just picture this, my mom is jumping up and down screaming......I go into FULL ON MELT DOWN mode.........I am screaming grabbing towels and the bathroom looks like a bomb went off and the inspector and buyers are on their way. SO we finally figure out how to turn the water off and it is full to the rim and the bathroom is covered.........so I don't know what to do......I call Roto Rooter and tell them this is a EMERGENCY!!!!!!!!!! Well the inspector arrives...............I have to tell him what happened (I wanted to die) and he says "If you can get it fixed by the time I am done with the roof I will let it be but if not I have to note it"!!!!!!!!!! So as I hyperventilate and my mom is like a stunned deer in headlights we wait.......................and then 1 HOUR later Roto Rooter arrives and in 3minutes and $120 later I was back on track. I literally just cleaned up the gross mess as the inspector walked into that bathroom.
I mean why? If it will happen it will happen to ME!!!!! I mean who does this happen to?

The inspection? Well, we got the guy who is the "President of the Home Inspection Association" so he pretty much ripped me (well the house) a new one and now I wait for a few days while the couple talks it over. So ya, that was my day and it is only a little after Noon! I swear you guys....I was having a full on panic attack earlier, you should of seen me. I hope my tragic story made you all laugh, someone should get some joy out of this ordeal. 

Well....I am off to wash every towel I own in my house (TWICE)

Oh Nicole...you poor thing!!! I hope the things the inspector found at minor and the couple decides to go ahead with the sale! Hang in there! Things like that always happen to me too! :-(

Been there, girl. That is the worst. But you know what's EVEN worse (not trying to one up but man it's bad) is when it's someone ELSE's mess IN your bathroom that you are cleaning. Talk about gag worthy. I almost threw up many times.

OMG! I laughed at your pain I'm sorry but that is classic. I also had some plumbing issues this week and the plumber came today also although mine wasn't as stressful as yours. I've been following your journey lately and I can't wait to see all the improvements and changes you make to the house.

Omg I would have been mortified. I would have locked the doors and claimed there was an emergency and rescheduled, lol

That is a story that will go down in history! It is funny to us all however I am sure that to you its not so funny & twice watched towels I would say that is a good idea & that I do not blame you one little bit..
