keep calm and carry a bucket
Well, my bedroom project is being postponed this weekend for another: removing contents from my very flooded basement. It's not pretty. We've had a few puddles in the basement before but this time we have at least 4-5 inches of water throughout. Not being fully prepared, I've been on the phone all morning adding my name to long call-back lists for flood control places while my husband attempts to remove some of the water. Meanwhile, the rain continues to pour.
I am trying to Keep Calm and Carry On even telling my husband that we should think of all this as a blessing in disguise. We will finally have to address the basement issues that we had been delaying and some choices about the things we hang on to and store in the basement have been made for us. We have rented a dumpster and that will be the big project this weekend. I do hope to paint our bedroom the following weekend. Still feels a little like April Fools a bit early.
Well, as John Lennon said, "Life is what happens when you're busy making other plans," right?
