Water is Wet and Sawdust Itches

So...I had big plans for the weekend. Really, I did. But they all went down the drain about 1 o'clock Friday afternoon when the water heater decided to give up the ghost all over my floors. It managed to flood out two utility rooms, a closet, the hallway, the kitchen, the dining room, a bedroom...and right now that's the total floodage. When the contractors get the last of the hallway floor up tomorrow morning we'll know for sure if it got into the bathroom or the other bedroom and library. So needless to say the house is a wreck. Even the subflooring is coming up and once the floor is dried it'll be a minimum of two weeks before we get new flooring in. It's been a rough couple of days.

We spent the evening putting a roof on the new shed Mom and Dad are building behind their house, and naturally that means my clothes were filled with sawdust. Which itches. In a way that only sawdust in your clothes can. You have to experience it to understand. I don't recommend it.

So there's no picture to go with this posting. Sorry folks. There may not be for a couple of days until we can get the house straightened out and back in a liveable condition. And it happened as we were finishing up the processing on the last wedding we had waiting, so we're having to dig our way back to that soon.

For now, it's definitely time for a little football here at the parents' house and then some much needed sleep. I have an hour drive at 7 a.m. to meet the contractors at the house again.
