So, How was your Monday?

I never do any thing easy.

If you are friends with me on f**ebook then you know the hell that happened on Monday. If you're not, let me take you back.....

Over the weekend the kids were sick. So sick, in fact, that they didn't even want to go out trick-or-treating on Sunday night. Overnight Sunday into Monday #2 crawled in bed with us around 2 am with a raging fever so I knew that he wouldn't make it to school on Monday. #1 wasn't feeling great but he decided to tough it out anyway. At around 9:30 I closed up my computer and decided to start a load of laundry, then went upstairs to get dressed.

Sometime after 10, maybe 10:15 or 10:30?, I came downstairs and at the bottom I splashed into about an inch of water. At first I thought that I had spilled a large glass of water. But, um, no. After a quick survey around I found that it was my washing machine that had over flowed and flooded my main floor. Somehow whatever tells the washer to stop the water flow didn't tell the water to stop.

Y'all would have been proud of me. I didn't freak out or anything!

Long story short, Headless Dad came home from work and we called in the brigade. They tore up carpet and tile and baseboards in most of the ground floor of our house. I have the monster blowers in my house drying out the walls. We could be out of the house for up to 7 days. (Worst case, but still.)

Anyway, so that's my tale of Monday. I have pictures that I'll share when I have a chance to download them. Our hotel has free wi-fi so I should have plenty of computer access but as far as time goes? Who knows. I still have to figure out our schedule for the week while being without my own home. We'll see. I'll keep you posted, k?

See? Headless. I keep telling you people....

Oh, sweetie, I am so sorry! Sounds like it was one heckuva bad day. I do hope it gets so much better. And, hey, free wi-fi is always good, right. Some kind of rainbow in this, I guess. Call me if you need or want to talk. You know where to find me.

No way! That is awful...good for you for handling it like a champ!

Busy Mom said...

Oh, man! This happened to us while we were on vacation one year. 2 feet of water in the basement.

Hang in there and maybe it'll be fun to choose new flooring?

Geez, that's some Monday.

If it makes you feel better, last Friday my neighbor went downstairs and stepped in RAW SEWAGE. Eeek.

I'd say your Monday "SUCK-ETH!"

I'm so sorry about the whole mess. Sending you virtual (((HUGS)))!

Keeping you in my thoughts. You are handling it very well. Hope you get to go home soon. The work in the house won't be fun but the outcome should be awesome.

I'll never complain about my dishwasher's habit of flooding my kitchen again. Well, not as loudly. I hope you get a really awesome new floor!
