Water, Water Everywhere

The joys of homeownership. Like when you go back to your house to pick up a few things and check on progress to find puddles of water in the dining room and basement.

Let's start from the beginning. My parents had brought us some boxes they had been storing in their garage when they came to the house one day. We left them there as storage since we don't have much room at the apartment. Well, when I filled all of the boxes we had at the apartment, Kevin took a trip to the house to retrieve the rest (I was volunteering at the Evanston Animal Shelter at the time). Little did we know a pipe had been accidentally cut in the rewiring process. And that there was a puddle of water in the dining room, and a larger one in the basement.

As you can expect that lead to a bit of a panic moment. Kevin in his quick thinking turned off the water (which surprisingly had not been turned off by the contractors after they cut the pipe).

Though there was a little good news at the house. The kitchen and second upstairs bath have made progress. Now just to put them together.

Anyway, this has to be a short post since I should really get back to packing. We're moving boxes over to the house tomorrow to avoid some of the crazy mover costs (the movers come Sunday with their truck to move all the furniture and any leftover boxes).

  1. Beth check out this unbelievable fabric warehouse. 2121 21'st street. If you liked vogue you will love this!!! I first learned about on design on a dime on hgtv and immediately went to see it the very next day---- Gene of course thought I was possessed ..... I think I just might be... But have since gotten some unbelievable bargains there in using the fabric for Becky's theatre room and curtains for our spare bedroom and the price was crazy cheap!
