I then decided to install the large bath towel bar. I started by measuring carefully, and deciding where I wanted to install it. This part always drives Tom crazy because I am kind of anal about these things. So after much consideration and measuring I installed the right hand side. Doesn't it look lovely! I then decided I better get the level to make sure that it looks nice and I mark the points for the left side of the towel bar. I get the hammer to start the anchor for the first of three that I need to put in the wall. I hit it and all of a sudden I hear a hissing and gas starts blowing out of the wall. You can pretty much, guess the word I used, thank god that it wasn't a water pipe. For those of you that can't guess it was the pipe that the freon for the air conditioner runs through. Yes the freon is escaping and what is a girl to do. I started freaking a little, because my initial thought was that it was freon, but our gas meter is right next to the air conditioner. I then calmed my self down, and convinced myself it wasn't gas because there was no oder and gas pipes are steel and my little anchor would not have penetrated a steel pipe. So, I call Tom at work, and he says calmly, the gas will stop soon and we will just have to get it repaired. When he came home from work, we ate dinner and they he sweetly said, "Do you want me to take a look at that". We cut a hole so that he can solder the leak and he has someone at work that can recharge the system. I am so lucky to have such a sweet guy!
So I now have to wait for the repair and recharge before I can start patching, mudding, sanding and painting all over again. The circle of life isn't it great!
