Everything you own will either break or wear out. Everything. You just don’t know if it will happen on your watch.
Last night we found out that the ice machine tubing on the refrigerator had sprung a leak and had been dripping into the basement for over a day. Lots of water, lots of fun figuring out which valve shuts what off, lots of running to get towels.
But it’s “fixed” for now. That is, it’s shut off. And the basement is drying and nobody died. So really not much to be uptight about. Of course we didn’t budget for any plumbing repairs (we found another slow leak while working on the original one), but like I said, nobody died, so I can’t call it a crises.
And really, it feels silly to even gripe about it. Because everything we own will either break or wear out. And sometimes it happens on your watch. Keep towels handy.
