The Great Flood
August 2, 2007
Saturday I started a load of laundry before leaving for work. Shortly after arriving at work I recieved a phone call from my husband telling me that our utility room/bathroom had flooded. After several days working on the waterlines and septic tank, taking out the toilet, numerous trips to the hardware store, and borrowing several items from our local handyman, we finally obliterated the problem last night. Now we have water, but we have another problem, the flooring in this room is CARPET. What moron puts carpet in a bathroom? Apparently my grandparents.
Anyways, despite our best efforts to dry out the carpet, our utility room now smells like a rotting carcus, and I have a toilet sitting in the middle of my den. Therefore, our weekend plans now include putting down a new floor. I hope our marriage can survive picking out said new floor, not to mention putting it down.
I will be glad for the linoleium floored bath/utility room I have always wanted, but I dread the work. Still, I take great pride in all the improvements we have made on our house, espically when it’s something we accomplish together. Maybe I will post some pictures when we get done.
