Flood update

Thanks for all your kind comments! They mean so much to us. As for the water, well it was gone about 2:00 that afternoon. Once the sump pump finally stopped my awesome father in law (yes he reads the blog but he is awesome so I'm not just saying that because he's reading ;-)) and brother in law came over to shop vac the rest of it out. Everything dried out quite nicely although it does smell musty in the basement. I'm sure it will smell like that for quite some time. My husband is so funny when it comes to cleaning up. He spent most of Saturday doing things with the basement stuff while I spent the entire weekend doing laundry. I had clothes stored in the basement for our yardsale this spring and a lot of it was water logged. I had to spin them before I could wash them. Now I think I am just going to donate them because most of it has been in 2 yardsales and hasn't sold yet. I did find a pair of Olivia's capris that I loved. They are 12 months. I tried them on the skinny little peanut and they fit her perfectly in the waist and are the perfect length for Bermuda shorts that have made a comeback this year. Thankfully our new exercise machine survived the flood and works great. Whew! We are expecting rain for the next several days but nothing like last week. Hopefully I can post a few pics tomorrow of my hubby's ummm how shall I say this.... drying of the stuff in the driveway...... It is quite original......
