I know, I've been neglecting the blogging world this week, and the guilt is finally settling in, probably because this is the first time I have even thought about a computer today ! My mind was on our basement, and not for good reasons.
As you know from my previous we were unfortunately victims of a....flood. Yeah, yeah, I know these things happen. Well at least that was my thought when the whole thing happen on Friday.
Remember how I said, "Oh well, things could be a lot worse".
Well today, they got worse.
Did I jinks myself ?
Does that even happen?
Today as the 5 men were here ripping up our lovely ceramic tile floor, they discovered something that frankly, I could have lived without hearing.
One of the guys came upstairs and calmly said "You don't have a cement slab under the house, we have never seen that before."
"What? You are joking right ?" was my response of course.
He brought me to the basement and showed me the proof.
Nope, no cement.
Turns out the guy does know what he is talking about, go figure.
At this point, I'm laughing.
The men must have definitely thought I was a crazy one. And to be honest, at that moment, I'd say I was nothing short of it.
I mean, we bought the house 2 months ago, this stuff doesn't happen right ? We purposely bought a new home so this stuff doesn't happen.
"Ha Ha" you say ?
I know, jokes on me.
My luck has been known to be a bit poor when it comes to getting rear ended, but, Come on ! Can't a girl get a break?
"Alright, alright, it's totally fine, I'll call the insurance and everything will work itself out right?"
The men just stood and stared at me. I wondered why they did just that, but now I know exactly what they were thinking.
"That crazy woman thinks insurance is going to pay for this? She is crazy."
Guess what? They were right. (About the insurance part. Not the crazy. Yet.)
And so my Wednesday afternoon took a plunge for the worse, yet again.
Wait, is noon too early for a drink? Or maybe 5 ?
Alright, alright, so it's still true. It still, despite what happend today, could be worse. (But, please no more jinks okay ? At least until next....year!)
It's times like these when I wish Mike Holmes was my BFF.
Anyone have his number ?
Okay, okay, pity party is over !
On a brighter note. I did paint an old mirror today. Oh, and Older DM bought me an awesome dresser for C.A.P's room, best part is that it needs a "makeover", gotta love me a new project !
Don't worry I will be sharing as soon as it's done.So, in closing, I know today's post was....late, short and perhaps a bit boring, but I hope everyone understands. I'll be back on Friday with, hmm, something good I promise.
Here's to a new basement, eventually ! Now go to your basement for me, hug the non-wet floor while having a sip of wine, would ya ?
Hope everyone is having a great week !
Post ya Friday.
