I went to the county today because I needed to clarify some wording on our building permit for the health dept. Apparently, the health dept doesn’t get to see the plans and I didn’t write on the application that the 1st floor bedrooms are being taken out. So I had to drive all the way up there just to put some more words on the app! GRRRR!
But while I was there I thought, what the hay!, let me see if I can past this homeowner plumbing test so that I can pull the plumbing permit myself. It was 10 questions, open book and I had 2 hours to complete it. I didn’t have 2 hours. Barely had an hour. I had to get back home to get AJ from the bus. They sat us (Adam and Madelynn were with me) in a back corner in the permit office. Adam colored for a little bit and Madelynn was entertained by a crayon for about 2 minutes. So this plumbing stuff is like a foreign language to me… Maddie starts fussing… Adam is whining that he bored and wants to go home… and I am worried I won’t be able to get this done in time… and to top is off I really have to go potty. So I push through it and the time starts to get away from me. I have to go! There’s one more question to do, so I guess! I handed my test in and told the (very nice) lady that I really had to run. Of course, Adam left is sweater back in the corner where we were sitting. So I had to run back and help him find it. In the meantime, they were checking the test. I gathered everything and headed for the door. She yells to me, “You passed! Good Job!” I turned around, “I did?!?!?!” She helped me get the permit app done in like 3 minutes, walked me to the checkout counter and I was on my way!
Let’s get to plumbing baby!
