I was on vacation for 3 weeks to go to my brother's wedding, baptize my baby girl in our home town, and join in on my husband's fabulous family reunion. We had a great time and enjoyed spending time with our family again. My husband hadn't been back home for over 2 years as he was busy with training and deployed to Iraq last year.
Upon returning home, we were shocked to open our doors to a flooded house.
A few days (or more) before we arrived back home, a water line busted in our hall bathroom and flooded our entire main level of our house. So imagine, returning home at 9:30PM, exhausted after 12 hours of flying, with cranky children, and walking into that mess.
We spent the next 3 days camped out in our upstairs bedroom, which luckily, had not been damaged at all, or we would have had to stay in a hotel while a restoration company brought in 30+ fans and 4 giant dehumidifiers to help dry out our drenched house....and this was after they tore out ALL the wood flooring we had installed ourselves just over a year ago.
My house has been in shambles ever since. Piles of stuff here, furniture shoved over in this corner, etc, etc. My husband had a 4 day weekend and we finally got our flooring installed...again. We opted to do it ourselves, so that we wouldn't have to wait for a company to do it....everyone was too busy to get it done as soon as we would have liked.
So, after 4 long grueling days, my wonderful husband has completely re-floored our house! I love him....now I am trying to get my house put back together.
I have been dying to bake, and hated not being able to participate in TWD, but have had to put that on the back burner. I will do my best to get back into the swing of things this week!
Stay tuned for some crazy baking! I am going through withdrawals, and it's going to be wild!
