How my quiet kid-free morning turned into a sopping mess, but I managed to keep my head above water.

When I woke up this morning I was greeted by the sounds of rushing water. Immediately I ran outside in my pajamas to turn the water off under the house. I grabbed every towel and started soaking up water. I grabbed my phone and started sending out S.O.S. text messages to my husband and step-dad.

Then I waited for help to arrive in the form of a wet/dry vac and plumbing supplies.

Now the story gets even better…
Hot Water pipe
This is the pipe that burst on my hot water heater that flooded my floors and caused us to pull out the washer and dryer.

This is the dead mouse that electrocuted it self that we found when pulling out the dryer. Which caused my step-dad to notice that that the wires weren’t installed correctly.

This is the spigot we found behind the washer that was leaking slowly down the wall that caused us to take off the back door so we could pull up the floor.
Spigot
Now we wait for the sub-floor to dry, so we can put back the door, lay down the new floor, fix the water spigot, clamp the wires on the dryer, and put everything back in its original place.
Back Door
Sometimes we don’t always get to see the big picture on when things go crazy and not according to plan…But today I am thankful for a broken water pipe that showed us other problems that could have really caused even more damage.

Don’t worry about Thanksgiving, my mom has it already prepared and waiting at her house. We just need to dry out some before we go.

Happy Thanksgiving!

    Oh my goodness!! Crazy kind of blessing but thankful for it anyway – great post! (PS wish I could have some of your mom’s famous pies – enjoy!)

  2. I am so sorry you had this kind of day and amazed by the positive outlook you exhibit in spite of it all. I’m afraid too many of us need to take a lesson. Uh…not me of course!
    😉 So glad your mom has your meal ready. You’ve earned it!
