Ohh Man!

We had some major down pour last night and when I came downstairs this morning to grab my friend Wendy a birthday card I was greeted with something else...WATER! YUCK our basement flooded...I don't know if I'll be able to stamp today, trying to get it all cleaned up before it starts to stink!

I am very very bummed, I have lost my area carpet...it covered the whole square where I have my stamping stuff and I love 2 other carpets, plus I think my sewing machine is gone too...how a I going to sew on my cards! Although I am pretty upset and don't know if I'll be able to replace the things we lost any time soon I am thankful that we don't live 50 or so miles north...Hubby is a fire fighter and he is on stand by at an area that had tornadoes and MANY house were destroyed...So although I am upset, I am still counting our blessings! I Thank the Lord for all he has done, in the good and bad times!

We were just a few feet from loosing the computer...what would I of done then!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Stampin'

I'm so sorry!! That hurts and is really hard to see but you are wise to count your blessings and realize that you are much better off than others who were hit badly and may have lost thing that they are not able to replace. Hugs to you - I hope your space ends up even better than it was to start with!

Oh! What a bummer!

I know how you feel, though. We had a house that flooded and the computer was in the big middle of it. The insurance adjuster came and asked us to turn the computer on and it caught on fire! Good thing my husband is a firefighter, too! (I can soooooo relate to you right now!!)

Hugs to you!
