When it rains it pours....................out of our pipes

No my carpet isn't so clean that it is shining, that would be water that decided to escape from its pipe and sog itself into the entire lower level of our house. The laundry rooms, two bedrooms, a bathroom, and the family room all reside on this level of the house. And of course the back wall of the family room is my sew/crafting area.So I keep my patterns in these two basket bags, all of my patterns and they are wet, soaked, most all are ruined except for the ones from the quilt shop that are in there little stay dry bags. Yeah!! in case you can't hear it "the yeah" I exclaimed is drapped in a touch of sarcasim.

I was so anticipitory for today-it was a half day of work, I was going to come home and snuggle up to my machine and work on a few projects including my pincushion for a swap I am doing. That might have to be done by hand as we have to completly empty the rooms.

As luck would have it it is raining outside so I can't even hang out a wet pile of blankets and other sogged items that the boys consistantly leave-and I ignore- on the floor of the family room.

Things could always be worse and I am grateful that it isn't, so with that I am done whining and am going back to ripping up carpet, sucking up water and salvaging what I can.


Do you think we can return the water to the city for a refund? We may have gotten more then we wanted.

I always try to think the same ~ 'it could be worse'. Hope the cleanup is quick.

aww no! Isn't it disappointing when you have your heart set on sewing (or something else) and unplanned things happen?? I had a night like that last night too! I hope everything gets cleaned up nicely and it won't be too hard!

Ooh yuck! I feel so sorry for you. Doesn't it seem like these things happen when you have your free time all planned out? But then again, at least the time is there to take care of the problem. Still no fun, though.
Thanks for the comment over at my blog!

That is such a pain! But, you are very, very right, it could have been worse. At least you are seeing the bright side. But sometimes we could do without those annoying, time-consuming efforts of clean up and repair. Hopefully something good will come out of it - fun new carpet? Maybe you'll like your space even better after? My best to you.
