We have water and all things are working well, so no more worries there. But now I noticed something wrong with the kitchen fridge, I think it's from the 90's (not sure), but the door isn't closing properly, even though there isn't anything blocking it from closing.
This will be fun replacing it in a tight house. But we'll see.
We finally have running water again, a few issues but we have them resolved. We might still get a new pressure tank in case this one does decide to kick the bucket. So far, we have normal running water, if not, stronger pressure than before. My bro believe mud had clogged a few of the pipes that caused the other minor issues. So glad that's done, we've done so much running around it was making me annoyed and exhausted, I need to catch up on my writing.
Checked on my sister, she's miserable, she can barely get out of bed. She had an ovarian cyst and had to get it taken care of, she is recovering slowly. My sister is secretive about things that are serious, she hid this from everyone till we were eventually told about it after it was all said and done. We're worried that she isn't telling us everything, I just hope the tests they will do will show no ill issues.
For now, I need to make sure we have spare parts and supplies in case this stuff happens again, our house is pretty old and a lot of the plumbing is over 40+ years old (house is older). One problem leads to another, we'll have to figure out how to get a new water filter system since the one we have is from the 70's.
Still open for commissions!
We managed to get the pump in and tried to see if the water comes out, it was working for 20 minutes till it suddenly stopped. Found out the pipe came off inside the well, thankfully tied onto a rope to keep it from dropping into the well. We were thinking it was the water pressure tank. We managed to get it hooked back up and are waiting to see if the pressure stabilizes so we can use it again, so far it's not looking good for the water pressure tank. -_-
I'm exhausted and worn out from working all day on that sucker, it was 90 F today and I'm partly burned, have a headache and want to take a long nap. Thanks
for the donation, it helped get a few parts we needed for the wiring and cables to get the sucker back into the hole. There were a few wires that were damaged from something, possibly rubbing, so that's taken care of.
So anxious to have a shower, might go down to the creek and wash off down there.
My sister is home today from her surgery, her only complaint (besides the pain) is having to stay in bed the past three days. Day one was at the hospital, then the next day surgery, and then all day being at home recovering. We're still planning on seeing her but the well issue prevented that visitation. I'm hoping to see her tomorrow and find out what happened to her and if she is going to be alright.
Really want to get back to my writing and if anyone is interested in commissioning me, just send me a note.
We finally got all we need for a new pump, we had to make several run around to the neighboring county (searched SEVERAL stores there too for the right pump). So far, we found that a few of the wires the hook to the pump are damaged, worn away or what looked like someone took a knife to them. The worst one was barely hanging on, it's shocking that it didn't short circuit the old well pump or the box in the house. We're working on checking the rest of the cables and hope nothing else is damaged. Pain in the rear doing all this running around, but progress for running water is making way.
Other than that, I found out today my third oldest sister went for surgery. One she had no choice in, I didn't get to hear everything from what my second sister said, but my third sister had gotten sick and they found out something was wrong and they had to take out her uterus and ovaries or she would be suffering and eventually die from it. I think my one aunt went through the same thing. My third sister has two boys and I don't think she was ever planning on having more, but going through this will change her greatly, as mom had gone through the same thing after having me.
We weren't told about it till now, which is a shocker and a bit of an annoyance since we would have gone to be with her for the surgery. My sisters tend to hide these things from me and my mom, not sure why but they get a growly mother after them for this.
Keep good thoughts for my sister, she is the one that nearly lost her husband in a work accident a few years ago.
Apart from more deaths in the family and friends passing away, this has been a rough few months. Ups and downs but now we might not have running water for a week. Our well pump, over 13 years old, has decided to start dying and not give us much water. Removing it, we went to get a new one, we got the wrong one, returned it and got another. Now it's the wrong horse power that we needed and none of the stores carry it, my brother wants to order the right horse powered one online but it could take a week.
Right now, I'm trying to find it locally but most of the sellers carry 2 wire pumps when we need a 3 wire.
It'll be interesting till we get our well in operating again.
Still open for commissions if anyone is interested. Stories, modeling, and stock/ref photos.
