My neck of the woods -Broken Bathroom

My husband likes to joke that I can break just about anything -So, I guess it isn't too surprising that when I went to shower the other day -the soap dish thingy -fell off! (And as you can see we went about fixing it -no the duct tape isn't a permanent solution -it was just to hold it on there- while the adhesive was drying) At least it seems to be fixed and I will try not to break it again -admittedly I did sometimes hoist my leg on there to get a good scrubbing -But, it wasn't all my fault! I think it goes to a bigger problem that -Our bathroom is breaking! Somehow /somewhere our tub? is leaking! We have towels down to soak up the water -but, I think it's getting worse :( I know it needs to be fixed -and as I've been checking things off the proverbial list (get my hubby a car -check, get our van new tires and things fixed on it -check, get the pets their shots- check) -It's about next on the list. But, I'm nervous! I'm nervous about how much it will cost, about if they'll say we can't use our bathroom for a month, or,or,or....
In my mind it was something I was hoping to take care of in May(middle to end) -When school is winding down -things are a little more lax -etc. Now looks like after Easter -We'll be calling a plumber out sooner rather than later! So, that's what's going on in my neck of the woods -P.S. -Any advice appreciated. P.P.S. -Hope things are going better in your neck of the woods -Be sure to join in with the RHOK's -Your neck of the woods!

I'm sorry your tub is brokey-no-workey, but just think how pretty it'll all be when it's fixed!

Oh no. I have a big crack in the bottom of my shower stall right now too. And fiberglass is not cheap. Stupid defect. If it would have happened in the first 2 years of home ownership it would have been under warranty. Aaargh! Good luck with the repairs!

Oh, no!! We had our soap dish fall off in our old house. It was a pain to fix.

I hope your plumbing doesn't cost an arm and a leg. Ugh!!!

Cheer up! Not all things last forever, right? *pats* The leak may have been too small for you to notice immediately. How long has it been leaking?
