Coming down our basement stairs we are now greeted with this sight.
Ugh, thank goodness for our dehumidifier...
It's been running pretty hard trying to get the water out!
Torn up carpets everywhere....
Elvis has decided hiding on the stairs to be a safer place to stay!
Our neighbor brought his trailer down so we could fill it, he owns a landscaping company so that has really helped us. We are still waiting for insurance to do their part. Meanwhile I've been taking a ton of pictures to document everything.
On a little lighter note...Hayley finished her Tipi for her American Girl dolls. She did an awesome job :-)
So since we had the trailer Jerry decided to fix our ceiling that got damaged last year when Hayley left the curtain out of the shower and all the water came through :-) Never a dull moment here... so my poor house is in disarray!
The mess is growing....aaagghh!
We dried it out well so luckily there was no damage inside.
Doesn't he look just a little too happy? LOL, I think he enjoys tearing things apart and fixing them. He's always looking for a new project to do!
This process is really hard on a neat freak, type A personality... (that would be me not him, lol!)
Thought I'd take a picture of the watercolor painting my mom did of our home when we moved in. She has done this for each house we live in. :-)
Monday Kathleen was home sick with a fever so Owen was sure to comfort her.
When Hayley and I walked out to the bus stop we saw this....
They are always overhead and many times land in our yards!
Always a neat thing to see though :-)
So as you can see we've been busy here. Hayley has had 3 chorus and vocal ensemble shows. Trying to plan for the holidays and prepare for a trip to my parents this weekend, getting ready for Disney World, volunteering at the girl's school, my schoolwork, basement and house projects, plus general cleaning, planning menus, my list goes on and on! LOL
How about you? Feeling the crunch of the holiday season yet? What is on your priority lists? ;-) I was planning to share holiday crafts and baking but trying to find the extra time! Maybe come January I'll sleep again? LOL
Enjoy the rest of the week!
