48 Hours

We returned home to a fairly chilly apartment. The place was dusty. And we had a newborn. So needless to say, we had our hands full.

But that wasn’t all that was in store for us over the next 48 hours.

First, our refrigerator broke. Not sure how, since it hadn’t been opened for a month.

The next evening, as I was contemplating how to get the fridge fixed, a water pipe under the bathroom sink ruptured, spraying water everywhere. Of course the main shut-off valve was rusted and wouldn’t budge. I called our landlady who said that repairmen don’t work at night. So all night long our bathroom became a swimming pool.

Meanwhile, our electric blanket decided to quit working.

The next morning, just after the repairman left, the valve inside the toilet broke, so we resorted to having to scoop water in to flush.

After I managed to track down and install a replacement part (and exchange the electric blanket for a new one), the pipe leading to the toilet sprung a leak.

Thankfully, everything is now fixed, the apartment is clean and I managed to keep the family fed. Definitely a fun welcome back to Yichang!
