First off, I am very sorry for the sudden stop in posts. It has been a crrraazzzy few months! December, we were booked every weekend with parties and events. January was full of family birthdays, trying to get over Christmas, and snowstorms. Then in February, one of my best friends had this:
Say hello to Audrey!
Audrey with her momma
I am a little biased, but is she not the most cutest ever?
She was such an angel during our photo shoot.
After lots of Audrey time in February (and more snowstorms), I thought to myself, "FINALLY! I can get back to blogging!" Started working on some projects around the house, then BOOM! Monday we were hit with this when we came home from work:
Almost an inch and a half of water from wall to wall in our basement. I was in tears.
Some of you may remember from almost a year ago, we had to install an outdoor drain in our front yard for the plumbers to properly snake our drains. We were told in a year, to have the drain snaked again to control the tree roots. Well, lets just say we were NOT happy campers. We thought our problems were over, with coming home to a surprise basement full of water.
It's day three after this, and the basement is dry, but there is lots of personal damage.
Luckily, all the electrical stuff is ok, but most of the furniture and rugs are not. The stinky part, insurance will not cover any of the personal property damage. Only structural, which there is not any. They said they do not cover outdoor water backing up into the home.
After a long talk with the plumbing company, we have decided that the drain needs to be snaked every 6 months instead of a year. Not really the best answer I want to hear, but it is the least expensive right now.
Anyways, onto the better news. We have been working hard on the house, in between it all! I cannot wait to show you more! Glad to be back :-)!!
