Please help me with a curse on my house
I surrender. I give up. This house has a curse. I've said it for years. It is half funny but I just can't take it anymore.
It is a water curse.
Anything having to do with water fails in this 1989 house. We have been here 8 years and so far we've faced: complete gutter system failure/replacemnt, dead water heater, dead washer, bad new washer install, sidewalk mudjacking, kitchen faucet shooting water, jetted bathtub raining into basement, cranky dishwahers, sump pump failure, basement floor drain backups, slippery-when-wet porch tile job, countless little leaks in faucets, pipes and drains now and then, and oh yeah, the big ticket: a complete rebuild of 2 central skylite domed towers and rpair of all the interior water damage. There is probably more I am repressing. It just seems relentless. And always WATER related.
Today the water softener repair guy finally came out for a repair - yay, no more sopping up that water three times a day in the basement. But no sooner had he left and I'm there racing to ready for belly dancing class (quit laughing, I'm trying to make peace with my menopausal pelvis), when a toilet starts spewing water.
I will likely fix the toilet tomorrow. Again. I can fix all kinds of minor plumbing events, LOL. But I'm tired of it. BTW we badly need to remodel a bathroom, but it kinda scares me.
Tonight I am asking for suggestions on removing the curse. A Native American friend did a smudging with sweetgrass. Nothing. I'm thinking maybe feng shui? I could have a priest I know over for dinner again, but it might offend him to ask for an exorcism.
Maybe I'm thinking crazy and this is just normal maintenance stuff. 18 year old house, planned obsolescence and all. But why only the water stuff? Doesn't it sound like a curse? Or one serious chi issue. Or something.
