So the plumbing issue that I thought was fixed ended up not fixed. Saturday when I went to take a shower there was a steady stream of hot water coming from the tap. I texted the plumber but he said he was out on the lake at the time. From Saturday around 4:00pm until Monday at around 9:30am I was a stressed out wreck. My anxiety had kicked into overdrive. I do not like not being in control of things. Even though the rational side of my brain tells me to calm down and things will work out one way or the other, the irrational side wins the battle.
I texted the plumber at 7:30 Monday morning and promptly at 8:00 he responded. He asked if I was off and said he would be in touch. An hour and a half later he texted to say he was on the way.
The tub is now fixed again and a new shutoff valve installed in case I have further issues. Now I can shut off just the tub and not go into a panic shutting off all the water and killing the gas to the water tank.
While he was working I put Gibbs outside because there's just no other place for him to go that he wouldn't be in the way. Of course if you put Gibbs outside by himself he's going to bark non stop. I told the plumber I would be outside with the dog to keep him quiet. We went out and sat under the tree and I read while the plumber worked.
