chilling on sunday
Sundays are generally reserved for relaxation, reflection of the past week while preparing for the week ahead, filling up the refrigerator and watching football.
This particular week has been one of particular stress. We came back from Thanksgiving to a flood in our apartment. A nightmare is an understatement. We basically have to gut our entire floor where the kitchen, family room, dining room and living room reside. We must move out for three months or so and the work needs to start asap. You don't want wet floor boards hanging out as mold slowly starts creeping in. I figured out the living situation by Friday afternoon.
The realization starting to creep in around mid-week. I function really well when I have at least ten balls juggling in the air but this particular ball was not expected and I think I over-stretched my bandwidth by Friday morning.
Sunday is here. I am chilling on the couch watching the Jets and Redskins play. Catching up on email and cleaning my desk while tending to a big pot of spaghetti sauce simmering on the stove. Perhaps an afternoon cocktail and I will be feeling just fine and back in gear by Monday morning.
Ah. Wonderful. Happy Sunday!I’m working away listening to music on my playlist. Roof above head. check. Food when I need it. check.Life is good. check check check.:)
Aww that sucks. So sorry to hear it. Not sure there’s much more stressful than finding a place for your family to sleep that same night.
it blows but what are you gonna do except figure it out. ARGGGHH!
Sucks. Make it a double.
How the heck did that happen? Did a plumber not solder a water pipe together properly and after a year the pressure was just too much?One of our hot air furnaces decided to blow this week after a street electrically power outage.The first week of december seems to be a stellar week for plumbers and heating contractors.
it was like being hit by lighting. a small coil inside a 2 year old a/c unit just popped. although the machine shut down the piece that sets off the alarms to an outside company was fried because the water came over the top of the box. i screwed all my neighbors too. the good news is we have chubb insurance. they are amazing.
UGH – sorry to hear – what a pain in the a…
ugh, sorry to hear about the flooding!
the floors look like mountains.
Oh no – that is such bad fortune – did you lose anything like rugs? Anything else? What an upset … J
we didn’t lose one thing except all the floors and my sanity.
Unplanned natural disasters challenge even the strongest of us.Oy! In the winter no less.
i’m stretched for sure.
Wow, so sorry to hear this 🙁 Thank God for insurance.
We had a flood that happened while we were away for my son’s wedding – master bath, kitchen and laundry floors shot, guest room below floor, walls and ceiling. We were lucky that USAA covered us but it was a huge pain. Fortunately I was on such a high from my son’s wedding that it dampened the frustration.I feel like there is a technology opportunity in this market – there are smoke alarms, carbon monoxide alarms – we need water on wood floor alarms.
We have those alarms. Unfortunately they got fried in the process
triple ugh! thinking of you as you sort it out!
And of course you had to be away when it happened… It happened to me at four in the morning but luckily I was there, and I avoided a lot of damage! Such a pain!
i wish i would have been here…you are lucky.
so much for leaving things on the floor … congratulations for not doing that – judy
Im a bit of a organizational clean girl
Oh no! Just catching up, so sorry to hear. I have this theory that there is a tripod to life – love, home, work. When one of the legs is missing, it puts you off balance…when two are unstable, watch out….when three are out, hunker down. Thank goodness you are solid in love + work. 🙂
it is like moving. very stressful
been catching up on your blog, dang this must have been frustrating, sorted by now though!
