bad news comes in threes

Saturday, April 20, 2013

so i was out doing the regular sat eerrands one of which is grocery shopping and DH calls and says the basement flooded. the carpeting is soaked and wanted to know where the shop vac and tools were. oh goody there goes our plans to travel again. 8 hours later at least 30 gals hauled upstairs and out to the curb and shifting as much of the stuff in the basement to dryer areas and now almost 7000 steps and 8 flights of stairs. my body hurts in all kinds of places some new others very very old, i am tired but maybe that is a good thing and i will sleep well.

    Sounds terrible. Don't you have a sump pump or something? They rent them in our area. I hope things are back to normal soon. It's time for some good luck.

    Wow-that's one horrible kind of a workout. Hope you got the cause fixed or was it the weather? Take care.

    Oh dear. The one positive if it's true they come in threes is that once you get through the three you can expect good things.

Hope nothing too important was damaged.

    emoticon about your basement. It seems to be a trend here lately. I had some water. Some of my co-workers had to leave their homes and others had major flooding. I feel your pain. I hope things start to happen better for you in three's.
