Be careful what you pray for!

Be careful what you pray for! Woke up with a headache and as I was digging around in the cabinet for some Tylenol, I said, “Dear God, I wish I didn’t have to go to work.” No sooner than the words left my mouth, the biggest explosion rocked my house followed by the sound of gushing water. Good news, the damage isn’t bad. Bad news I have an indoor swimming pool in my basement. Of course, that could be considered good news by some. Bad news everything in the basement is wet. Good news, the basement will now get cleaned out, which could be bad news for my husband.

I’m now waiting for the sump pump to pump out the water. What a mess!! Books, furniture, photo’s you name it, it was down there. Many of my research books were down there also, but I had placed them in plastic totes. I won’t know until the basement is dried out before I know what the real damage is. The things we had in plastic totes, I think will be okay. The old furniture—not so much.

I do want to give a very special thank you to Jordan Daigle, for helping me shut off the main water line. I didn’t have the strength in my hands to turn the knob. Thank you, Jordan.
