See that round silver thing above Lizzie's little piggies?? I thought it's sole purpose was to keep the tub from overflowing? Mine must be faulty cuz I started the bath, headed downstairs for a minute, had a phone call, then another phone call, you know how it goes, right? Then out of the blue I heard a dripping, that grew to a frantic dripping, and "OH MY GOSH, I gotta go" Click.
I ran upstairs, and just as I had suspected, at least an inch of water all over the bathroom floor. By the way, the only way to unplug an overflowing tub, after turning off the offending water of course, is to reach your arm down into the tub - causing more overflow onto the floor as a side affect.
Luckily - hard wood floors upstairs, stained concrete downstairs, 10 minutes later all was cleaned up and fine - except Jake's Keyboard which was directly under the tub on the first floor. It is presently laying upside down and will hopefully still be functional.
Just wanted to share my excitment for today! :)
