On August 10th, (Cody’s 26th birthday) we came home to a swimming pool in our living room!
After trying to mop up the water we realized we were going to have to rip out the carpet!
There was still standing water on the concrete slab even after we removed the soaking carpet and pad!
Insurance came in and assessed the damage. They totaled almost all our floors. The living room carpet, the bedroom carpet, the kitchen wood and the bathroom tile. We spent the next several days demolishing all the damaged areas and got a lot done thanks to great friends!
Funny how something like this could be a totally paralyzing situation if we allowed it. However, Cody and I believe that our circumstances aren’t the things that should control us.
More often than not, it’s things like this that turn into being more of a blessing than a curse. It’s all in how you look at it.
