The Epic Flood of '09

So I am sure many of you (okay probably like 2 people but a girl can dream) wondered where I have been. We had a pipe burst at 2 AM Saturday morning. (Friday night) Squeak wakes to nurse at 1 AM every night so I got up then and brought her to bed with me. She nursed for about a half hour and then we both fell asleep. She wiggled at 2 and I woke enough to hear a weird whooshing noise. I figured my MIL had done something to the AC unit to make it be super noisy but I got up to check and as soon as I hit the main hall I stepped in a few inches of water.

I figured the toilet had gotten stuck and went into the bathroom and discovered that nope the toilet was fine. I opened the cupboard under the sink and got soaked. Boy was it COLD!!! I luckily am not a complete airhead and knew how to shut off the water so I did that.

I called the Hubs at work and he said "Lay down some towels and I'll fix it in the morning." HAHAHA!! I don't think he realized how bad it was. So I called my Brother-in-law and the apartment super and we moved all the furniture in the water out of it, and used a shop vac on the rest of the water. It was a mess. We had to rip up the carpet in the hall, the living room, and Bug's room. Bleck!! So we slept upstairs with the BIL for a couple nights. We got the new carpet in today so we are back in business. Now to pack for the move, lol!! Missed everyone!


  1. Glad you had a reason to be up in the middle of the night.

  2. Me too. Never have I been so thankful for the 1 AM feeding. Things could have been a lot worse had I not woken up!
