Bad News - Blog Break

Hello ladies,

we had this week a bad weather and the entire basement got flooded with water from the suer and rain water.

My craft area is downstairs and as of today i was not able to even go downstairs to get some things upstairs.

Once i figure out how i can re-arrange my things upstairs i will color again - i miss it already but for now i just have to wait things out and see how fast the companies will get things back as they were. Due to the mixture of water that came into the house, we will have to rip everything out, toss it and start all over again.
For now it would be just nice to be even able to have warm water to get a shower :-( and wash our clothes :-(

I do try to think positive... my kids, my husband, the pets everybody is fine..... it could have been worse.

Thanks for listening
Claudia

Hallo Claudia,

oje, das hört sich gar nicht gut an. Gut, dass niemandem etwas passiert ist. Allerdings liegt sicher noch viel Arbeit vor Dir, dass alles wieder in Ordnung kommt. Ich drück Dir die Daumen, dass Du wenigstens ein paar Sachen weiterbenutzen kannst. Das klingt ja nach einem echten Alptraum...

Fühl Dich gedrückt.
Liebe Grüße aus Deutschland

How awful for you Claudia. I feel your pains. It is such a huge mess when something as this happens.
I have lived in a new house for 5 years and we have had 3 rooms leaking water every time it has a blowing rain from the winds. We have put up with our house torn apart all these years due to the builder trying to put a little patch here and there. It has been awful for us as well. We have now hired a company to come and rip our house apart and start all of it over from scratch. We've been sick with bronchitis for all these years over and over and i feel it is from this mess and having walls soaked
. I hope we can both have brighter days ahead of us. Keeping you in my prayers.
