Good times...









So pretty much everyone who knows me about The Flood (not the Noah's Ark version, but our very own Christmas Day surprise.) For such a small amount of water (about 3 inches) it did a surprising amount of damage. We have gone through all the stages: packing up the entire basement, the massive demolition (floors, walls and ceilings), building new walls, electricians, plumbers, drywallers, mudders, tapers, painters, more electricians, flooring guy, construction of massive quantities of Ikea (thanks to my dad for coming to our rescue), and finally - just when I was starting to feel like maybe I had a handle on it, all of our stuff that was in storage came back yesterday. ARGH!!!!!!!! This is the project that will never end! For those of you who remember the old me; you may know that once upon a time I was organized. I used to really be on top of my game. Now I went from the majors to little league... and I am at the bottom of my division!

But in the end, it will be dealt with. The boxes will be unpacked, the entertainment unit will have doors on it, the desk and office will be a nice space to work, the bathroom will be done, my house will finally be clean again... and when that happens it will end up being the best Christmas present ever. Until then though, it is just a MONSTER PAIN IN THE ...

I feel your pain. We flooded in June and July of 2005 - and everything was finished and moved back into place in March of 2006. I thought I was going to go crazy in that time. Because we weren't smart enough to move things into storage - they sat in our dining room and family room that whole time!

When are you off to SF? And are you coming here?

put your head down and get to work. You'll be thru before a year!
