This week sucks!

Where oh where do I start...

12:30am on Tuesday "night" I remind Richard about that water sound I heard at the fridge.
He investigates further....
Oh my goodness, water is leaking from the tube to the ice maker and it's all over the kitchen floor.
Oh no, it's not just in the kitchen, it made it's way to the dining room...
UNDER the laminate wood flooring that we only put down 3 years ago!

We spent from about 1am until 4am pulling up the floor boards and finding water, water, water.
LUCKILY we got the end of it and saved it all, I think!
There is no more water on the floor, but our house and dining room are a wreck!

We HATED putting those boards down with a passion and I told Richard never again! We are getting REAL wood floors and PAYING someone to do it next time.
So, I wouldn't have been to upset if we had to rip it all out and start over....well, our check book would have been VERY upset since wood floors are a nightmare in cost.
Now we get to relive the "joy" of doing these floors! I HATE these floors!!!!!

Take a look at our night and what we call our home now! :(

This was just a few boards into taking up the floor...towels, towels, towels

We had to take at least the crystal out of the china cabinet..that stuff is heavy!

The dining room chairs now live in the living room

Our dining rom is down to the concrete slab!!!!

Okay, so, we are done at 4am! Then of course Kaisley needs to eat, so I'm up until 5am! And what do you know, she's back up at 6:30am! Seriously, who sleeps for just 1 1/2 hours at night...ME! That's right!

Wednesday, I'm beyond exhausted! Does exhausted even explain 1 1/2 hours of sleep? I'm not in college anymore, I don't pull all nighters!
I have a dentist appointment in which I almost fell asleep with my mouth wide open.
The exciting news, I have a dead tooth, with an infection.
So Thursday, I get to go in for my very first....ROOT CANAL!
Lucky me!

Oh, Wednesday's fun continued...another leak!
This time, under the kitchen sink!!!! Drip, drip, drip...anyone know a plumber???
Seriously!?!!!!?!??!?

And for those of you that don't know, about 4 months ago, I discovered a leak in the water heater....in the attic. LUCKILY and THANK GOD I discovered it before the whole attic flooded.

But yeah, water and this house are NOT friends!!!!!!!

OMG Michelle! Who has 2 leaks at the same time?! I'm so sorry! I know how frustrating it can be - we had a tile shower that leaked for who-knows-how-long... maybe since the house was built. We didn't discover the leak until it dripped through the ceiling into the downstairs and onto the hardwood floor. Then we found mold and all that fun stuff. So for the silver lining - at least you caught it early before any mold started growing!!!

Oh I am sorry but don't worry bad things happen in 3 so you should be out of the woods now, between the fridge leak, tooth, and the pipes...is done.
