This was how I felt today. Okay, not this bad but close. Here’s the short story: I came home from seeing ‘Limitless’ (which I super enjoyed) with some girlfriends. I was tired and the bed looked so comfy I didn’t think I’d be able to find the energy to wash my face, get into my comfy’s, and make it to bed. I just wanted my pillow. But before I could do anything Jeff and I went in to check on the kiddos when we heard a squish, squish in the carpet and our feet felt wet. It was 10pm, I was tired and this was waking me right up. Jeff and I grabbed as many towels as we could and covered the floors with them. It was still soaking! We unloaded Tyler’s bookshelf and moved it to the other side of the room. Then it was time to wake up the kids. Brielle was sleeping in Tyler’s room (she loves to be close to him at night) so we carried each of them to our beds and snuggled them in. It was time for the loud carpet cleaner to come out and suck up as much water as I could. 2 hours later and two buckets full of water later, I was done. Wide awake but done. This morning the carpets were still soaked so I had to call in the Professionals. So right now our house is in disarray. But we’re getting all the water-damage fixed. The flood man told me the ‘Water Damage Gods were watching over me last night’ – he was amazed how much I was able to extract last night. Yay for that late night second winds lol. Anyway, it’s amazing how water can damage things – and fast. Anyway, I’m spent but happy it wasn’t worse. Happy and thankful for so much.
Photo: This picture was taken just after Brielle hurt herself from falling, her emotions were so raw and my camera was right there – I just had to take a picture. I feel her pain when I look at it.
