No FFF for me this week.....

Sorry if you came to my blog to see pictures....
No pictures this Friday for us.

But, I will say ONE thing!

Please check all your hose connections to your washer and your dishwasher!!!!
Wednesday at about 4pm, our hot water hose to our washer let go..... in 5-6 minutes, hundreds of gallons of hot water flooded our laundry room, our kitchen, and down into our basement and our duct work.
Thank God for insurance.... there is NO Way we would have been able to clean it up.
There are 4 dehumidifiers in our house right now.... and about 10 industrial dryers.
Our drywall is coming out tomorrow...as is the subfloor in our laundry room and kitchen... the linoleum went today.
The carpet in the basement is probably also going tomorrow....
My computer got wet.... but is kinda working...my backup drive got soaked though... not sure if it is usable right now or not.... K and L's adoption papers got soaked as did their passports..... 4 of my textbooks also took a hit as did just lots of paper and such that we had sitting around.
So.... just as a reminder....
Pay your insurance!!!!
Check those hose connections!!!!!!!!!!!
(ps... dont EVER disconnect the hoses to check them without first shutting off the water and then releasing some of the pressure)
Just thought i'd add that little tidbit.... as a good friend of mine had no ideal that the water pressure is always there.....
Have a good weekend!
