A Blue Day!
The day started out like any other day... I put in the laundry and was happily photographing my pretty hydrangeas that I had just picked from the garden.
And some bright roses too~
And then - the washing machine overflowed!!!!
Quickly we grabbed towels, comforters and buckets and mopped up as much as I could with my son. I couldn't have turned off the water and done it without my wonderful son, Bradley and daughter, Rachel!
When I ran down the basement I realized that we really had a problem. The water was leaking down through the vents, light, ceiling fan and ceiling! I called the emergency insurance company nunber.
Within an hour a restoration crew of about ten people had arrived. They taped up the floor and started boxing up all of the dishes from my china cabinet in the kitchen.
We just had our kitchen renovated a year and a half ago.
I loved my kitchen!
The crew started clearing out my appliances.
And by the end of the week my kitchen, basement and laundry room were gone!
But the pumps are still noisily pumping away!
I am upset! My house is a mess! I can't cook, wash clothes or play with my pretties!
I can't find anything! The rooms are zippered off!
The insurance company said that we can move to a hotel and that it will likely take up to 12 weeks to complete - that's the end of October!!! I need a new kitchen and laundry room floor, washing machine and basement ceiling and walls, floors and lighting.
Right now I am at the cottage trying to forget.
I know that things could be much much worse. My kids are healthy and safe and nothing else really matters.
But wouldn't you be a little blue too?
