Funny story. Our basement floods a little every year in the spring. I think that a lot of people around here have slight problem with basement water, the houses being so old and all. So when earlier this week we had a massive thaw and a bunch of rain, the mr preemptively set up the sub pump to keep the water away. All day he was checking the pump and all day it poured butthe basement stayed dry. He turned it off that night after it had stopped raining. We woke up to the most beautiful bright blue sky, the temperature so warm that I didn't need to wear a jacket and to 3 inches of water in the basement. STUPID!!!!! But that happened and yeah. The mr spent a good few hours moving all of our stuff, (we store a lot of stuff in the basement) shop vac-ing and pumping up the water .He did such a good job that it was almost like it never happened. The only really wet thing was a big laundry basket of stuff. I wanted to wash itasap so it wouldn't mold so when I got home, into the washer it went. (the washer is in the basement too) Go to change the load to the dryer and guess what.. the mr took the washer machine house out of the main drain to use it for the shop vac, and no, we forgot to stick the hose back in. We re-flooded the mother F-ing basement!!!!!AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!
But it's kinda funny right?
Anyway the week has been heavy on the crazy. My Dad has been here so we have been spending a lot of time with the family doing family things all week. Over at the house we have pretty much gutted the kitchen (anyone want free kitchen cabinets?) and the mr is almost done muding the first floor. Once that happens we can move in (Just kidding... not even close) but we are well on our way. And the next project we tackle is going to be fun fun (rip the roof off!)
And the father of mine is leaving today, (which makes me a little sad) I have no kiddos in my care, the water from the basement is pretty much gone and I don't want to do a damn thing that involves work. It's a down day for sure. No people, no fuss. I have a new book on hold at the library, although I am kinda torn. Should I start a new book or binge watch Fuller House? (can I take more family drama?) Have you watched it yet? Do me a favor if you have, let me know if it's going to ruin the Tanner family for me.
Hoping your day, as well as mine, is gong to be a good one!
