The little ones are probably lucky we are leaving. You've heard about all the flooding in Iowa? Well, we had a nice little incident in the back corner of our basement which involved a clogged gutter, bad landscaping that is waiting to be fixed, a window well and a sump pump that emptied about every 20 seconds. It was touch and go for awhile but we managed to keep it very contained.
After getting that all fixed up, we thought we were home free, if not a little tired. However, last night around 8:00, my five year old headed to the bathroom to wash off the residue from his favorite ribs. He proceeded to plug the sink and turn the faucets on full blast.....and leave. I will never forgot the site that awaited me. Literally gallons of water all over the bathroom and carpet that splashed me. My make up drawers were swimming! The water was coming through the floor to the basement.... you can imagine the night we had. My best joke of the night was, thank God I had all those maxi pads in the cupboard or this could have been so much worse. In truth, it is pretty bad.
Not sure what the damage will be but it is what it is. We will figure it all out. My poor little baby got in the biggest trouble of his life. He was asking me today if Santa watches every day. What a sweetheart. As he was starting to understand how much was really flooded and could be ruined, he wanted to know if the water got any of his Wii controllers. HA HA.. Grandma and Grandpa will give him lots of love while we are away.
Oh yeah, I did run this week, I stunk it up pretty good. It was hot and I only went 3 miles but I got it done. I also did several days of p90x. It was a heavy week of dieting in the Vivalicous Challenge and the scale rewarded me with 2 or 3 pounds. Now, to hang on to it on the trip. Does scotch have very many calories? :D :D
Bye for now. I'll miss you!
