Lest you think we're only about food here...

...we also deal with water damage (or "Guess who's getting new carpet?).

Last August, this room was the site of a surprise tea party hosted by my children.
 


Fast forward to day before yesterday and it is a different scene.



The water from a blocked egress drain outside the door came into the room...9 feet!  Lucy's enjoying exploring the newly exposed concrete.


It wasn't just water, either...it brought mud.  There was no salvaging the carpet, so Valiant and I got to work ripping up carpet and pad.  That darkened concrete?  Water!! (Discovering that some places had no pad!!)



I really wasn't looking to get new carpet right now, but that doesn't mean I'm not going to enjoy picking it out!

Ugh, that stinks. Glad you are getting new. But what a pain.
