When it rains...

sometimes it pours. Not that it's really raining in my life, just a little foggy at the moment. However, I was under the impression that the rain wasn't supposed actually be inside my house. Here's what happened:

Yesterday, It rained all day. It rained all night, too.  In fact, it's supposed to rain today and tomorrow as well. This morning, the carpet in the living room and hallway were soaked. So I made a quick phone call to have someone come take a look. Well...they came they saw, they destroyed my living room. To their defense, they didn't have a choice. As I said earlier, the carpet was soaked. So, the carpet was peeled back. The gentleman then proceeded to remove padding. I watched as they carried the dripping wet masses out the back door. The men spent quite a bit of time vacuuming up the rest of the water. They left us with an industrial fan, which was later collected because other folks are also flooded and there aren't enough for everyone. Oh, did I mention that a moving company is coming over tomorrow to survey the house and give us an estimate?

I was supposed to be cleaning, trashing and packing today. But with my living room being taken over, I decided to take the opportunity to write while I wait. So here's to a productive day, even if it wasn't in the way I intended.

P.S. Thanks Adiaha
