72 hours ago I went downstairs and discovered. Water.
Lots and lots of water. Water where it should not be.
There might have been some cursing. Sweet Girl didn’t know Mommies said those words. Sorry kiddo.
“People” were called. All of these “people”….the plumbers, the restoration men, the insurance guy, they all had bad news. Every sentence ended with dollar figures. Big ones. One
condescending jack ass older gentleman kept asking to speak to my Husband instead of me. Did I step into a time warp? Is this 1950? Did he want me to get my Daddy too?
So I did what any self respecting Mama in the suburbs would do. I cried a little, then packed my bags, grabbed my kids and ran away to a cabin in the woods. Take that you leaky piece of crap house.
I have traded this rug torn out, belongings trashed, destroyed basement, stuffed with ear-splitting de-humidifiers and hepa filters….
My kids are on school break for a week, and I’m hiding up here until Hubby and that old man fix my house!
Hope you all have a fabulous, healthy safe and happy week.
Mwah! I will miss you!
