Part II: Moving furniture to avoid leaks!
Social media can be very one-sided, with only the best highlights featured, making it seem like everyone else is leading such a charmed life. There should be a rule that 1 out of every 10 posts are a sort of “reality check”, featuring some of the inevitable “evil” behind the scenes, as you MUST have the good with the bad, that’s what REAL life is about.
So the real story behind moving furniture goes back 3 weeks, as a leaking roof led to several attempts of our landlord’s crew to fix the roof... instead of getting better we sprung two then three main leaks and our ceiling literally was pregnant with water. The last storm had us placing every bucket and cooler we own out, moving furniture and artwork out of harm’s way. Obviously it’s a bad time to do roof repairs, so the desperate solution was to insist on tarps, which they brought with nothing to hold them down with! Aaaccckk! So we have tires and bricks on our roof right now, and pray the next storm doesn’t result in a swimming pool in the living room! So go back to that previous post and channel tranquility; because the reality is me poking holes in the ceiling to release gallons of rainwater!
And as if that weren’t bad enough, we think the workers damaged the Globe fiber cables inadvertently, so we lost our internet and cable tv! But Globe responded SWIFTLY and less than 24 hours later, all is well and fixed (Bravo Globe Repair Service!) and we just hope the tarp holds. Our neighbors who have second floors are probably 🙄 at the tires on our roof, but you just gotta do what you gotta do. Sixty year old house rentals can be dangerous for your fragile state of mind. My next posts could be written in an asylum. 😂🤣 #marketman #marketmanila
