Broken Pipes and Damaged House, But a Winner Too! Ha Ha!

Please pardon me for this short post today.  We were awoke in the middle of the night to the sound of water running in our house with a very loud drip noise. We had a pipe break in our second story and it ran down into the ground floor. We were able to stop the water from running.  We put buckets around and mopped up all the water that was get-able.  Unfortunately, we realized at daylight and after the specialist came out that the damage is worse than we originally thought.  But everything is fixable and we do have insurance!!  Oh well....such as life.  This too shall pass.......

I do have some great news on a happy note......this is the Ha Ha! moment of my post.....the moment that makes me smile in this very long day........The WINNER of my 100th Follower Giveaway is Deneen at Dreaming In Color!!! Congratulations!! Please send me a comment so that I can get your mailing address!!!  I gotta send out these adorable mushrooms!
The other good thing that happened today was that since I was house bound it gave me a chance to work on straightening up my studio and workshop.  I 'hired' my daughter to help and what a champion she proved herself to be!! 

I am hoping to get my little project completed that I talked about earlier in the week in my blog post It's All About Toilet Paper.  Fingers crossed that I will get a chance to work on it tomorrow.  The guys come tomorrow morning early to cut open the walls in my dining room and kitchen in an attempt to mitigate more damage and mold.  Oh well...... Whatcha gonna do? Right?!   I'm thankful that I have a home to live in, wet or dry!

-The End-

I certainly admire your optomistic attitude. I would be having a meltdown right about now. It didn't affect your newly done bedroom, did it?

You have such a positive attitude, my friend. I could stand to learn a thing or two (or three) from you!

Well, having a broken water pipe can be troublesome. I can just imagine how hard it was for you to deal with the dripping sound in the middle of the night. It’s good that you called in an expert to fix the problem early in the morning. You definitely kept the leak from further damaging your beautiful house!

@Daryl: It’s really irritating. We had a broken water pipe just last month, and even if we had already fixed it, there are times that I still hear that dripping sound! Haha! It’s like a song that stuck at the back of my head.

Good thing you have it checked when the damaged was still fixable and can covered up by the insurance. Before, I took these things lightly, and get back the ignoring it when the daylight comes and the dripping subsides. The result was not good, and I learned the hard way. :-/
