Never a Dull Moment!

last night the upstairs guest toilet overflowed. we didn't realize it until water was pouring out of the ceiling in the pantry/utility room and downstairs bathroom. we used every towel in the house to mop up the water, but we had to call in a company to do the rest, and dry out the carpet and walls and ceiling. what a mess!

we have two dehumidifiers and about 10 high powered fans in the house, both upstairs and downstairs. the poor cats are freaked out and we had to move their litterbox out of the bathroom downstairs. the equipment will be here for 3-5 days, it will take that long to dry out the floors and walls. they had to rip up the carpet in places and are going to have to replace the pad. the water flowed from the bathroom to the north, all the way across Emma's room and partly into our room and the guest bedroom. the guys were here last night for a couple of hours until 11pm. all the excitement overstimulated Emma and she didn't go to bed until 1:30.

the constant droning of the fans and dehumidifier is slowing driving me crazy! i can barely hear the TV or anyone on the phone. since we have such an open floor plan, there really is not a quiet place in the house to go, except my closet! i'm not sure i can take 2 or more days of this!

otherwise it's baby central as usual over here.
