Getting ready for round two.

Well as many of you know we just finished up with a record flood. Well at least for now, another crest is headed our way mid Apr and it has a chance of meeting that same record or even breaking that one. Too much for me to handle. There is SO much I haven't gotten done because of this flood. I just want this all to go away.
March 21st was my moms 4 year anniversary of her passing and I am very upset I didn't get out to her gravesite. Luckily for me my excuse is she is surrounded by water. I hope to get out there before the next crest. Maybe tomorrow or Monday afternoon.
Kirk and I are getting everything situated in the basement. Things up and thrown out. Let me tell you not much is going back down. It has always felt crowded down there and now is my chance to thin things out! We are getting new flooring and getting two rooms redone. Hopefully a new shower too. We will see, it all depends on insurance. Helps when I work in that field! YAHOOIE!!

The thrift store will love us inthe next coming weeks. Going through clothes that don't fit kids anymore. I actually have found that I LOVE getting rid of stuff. ( Kirk has done this to me, damn him!) The first week of May is clean up week where we are allowed to pretty much put anything on the curb. Luckily for us it is extended due to so many homes having damaged basements and homes. Just cleaining out my house of unwanted crap makes my heart beat better on its own. There is so much stuff we gather and collect that we dont even realize. I was telling Kirk that even though we have most things upstairs already..We still have SO much downstairs still. washer Dryer, Sofa loveseat, entertainment unit, deep freezer, air hockey table, desk, etc etc etc! It never ends!

Not that I am not grateful for all these things. I can realize quickly how I would take it all for granted. I can't imagine losing my house. I feel so much for those in our area who did. Heartwrenching! I can't begin to imagine.
Well now that it is 830pm and none of my kiddos are down, I mist go and smack some butts. Jk Nathan is using potty time as an excuse to delay bedtime and I am TOO much of a softie!

Night all!

  1. We took the weekend off from anything flood related although I have been cleaning out the basement as well. And making better pathways through all the stuff upstairs :) But I am so not going to give the second crest any thought until next week! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
