More Pictures

As you can see, I’m back. We moved into our new house on Thanksgiving Day and spent the day unpacking. We lost our internet connection when we moved around the computer and finally got it fixed on Tuesday. I know you’re all dying to see the pictures of the our damaged house, so here they are.

The water leak started in the upstairs master bathroom. Our entire carpet was soaked, as was much of the room next to ours. Most of the damage was done to the ceiling directly under the flooded rooms. So I present to you…our kitchen.



And the “office” area/junk depository:

Everything on, under and near the little roll top desk was completely soaked.

The hooks on the wall were holding portraits of our children, which our neighbors rescued. The bookshelf held mostly school books. Out of thousands of dollars worth of curriculum, I only lost about 8 Explode the Code Workbooks. That wet wall is a common wall, but fortunately, the neighbors on that side have not seen any damage.

Believe it or not, I had cleaned up this area ALOT before we left.

Just for the record, Longaberger baskets dry out beautifully. They will also grow mold if thrown into a box while wet and left there for 3 weeks. Luckily, the mold washes off and if caught in time, doesn’t even leave a trace.

More Mac and Cheese, please!

  • What a mess! I can’t imagine having to come home from a nice relaxing vacation and have to deal with that. How stressful it must have been for you guys! Good luck to you in your new house! :0)

  • Wow, Lorri, this is subtantial damage. I am glad that you did not lose too much in terms of curriculum. I am also glad that you still managed to hold on to some “Humor” over the Longerberger.

  • Oh Lorri, what a mess. I’m glad the neighbors saved the photos for you. I’m glad you’re out of there – I don’t think that place will ever recover.
