April Showers...

...bring floods to new basements. =( We moved most of our things into our new home last weekend.  Luckily we got it all done before the rains came.

It started raining Monday I think and hasn't really stopped yet for more than a couple of hours.  Which led to Hubby coming home yesterday for his lunch break to a FLOOD.  For some unknown reason our sump pump decided it wasn't going to turn on.  Thankfully, we hadn't gotten too much unpacked/moved downstairs yet, so there was really only one box of casualties.  Minus the flooring.  I'm not quite convinced yet that it's all saved.  I think we will get the carpeting dry now that it's pulled up, it didn't get too wet, but the sticky tiles are just not going to grow new adhesive and stick back to the ground.

We spent all of last night cleaning and mopping and setting up fans.  My cousin came over and helped Hubby replace the old non functioning sump pump with a new one...which isn't the right kind.  It ended up working for the night but he's back to good old Home Depot now to replace it.  That place is unfortunately becoming our new "favorite" hang out spot.  Oh, the joys of home ownership.  My plans were obviously not to spend my evening doing that, but to work on getting my resume updated to start sending out.  I realize I'm a little behind the game this Spring but the whole buying a house thing kind of got in the way.  I told Hubby and Momma that I can't let it get in the way tonight, its all work and no play for me.  Although, my "play" is just unpacking more boxes, which has suddenly taken on a whole new level of pleasure and my often neglected blog is getting a random update.  It's amazing what you want to do when you need to be doing something else!

At this point it doesn't look like I'm going to get too far with any of my projects.  Time to go start some supper...just another distraction from what I should be doing I suppose!
