So what happened?
Ed and I finally found a few days to go on vacation. We filled the trailer with water from our back water faucet. The water ran almost an hour. Then with huge smiles thinking about the trip we were planning we came inside to find WATER! Almost an inch of it all over the kitchen floor and into the living room. We mopped and used a carpet machine, blew a fan and ran a dehumidifier but no use. The laminate floor in the kitchen is ruined. The carpet had to be pulled back to dry. Right now the restoration company is ripping up my beautiful floor and removing cabinets and banging holes in the wall. We have been told we cannot leave unless there is someone here everyday to let them into the house. So our vacation is over before it began. Could we go later? Probably not. Our workforce is returning to school and our house sitter (our son) is returning to college so there won't be anyone to watch the pets.
So today I'm sinking in my pity party pool. But today I also know God loves me. He didn't do this to ruin my vacation but why did he allow it to happen? Maybe I was supposed to clean under that stove last week. :)
