Here's what I learned:
1. A wet/dry vac is a beautiful thing.
2. I can vacuum up 55 galloons of water all by myself (hubbie wasn't home when this was discovered).
3. All the homeowners insurance money we've been paying Allstate hasn't been in vain. They've done right by us.
4. What is a horrible mess for adults is an exciting adventure for kids. See below.
5. Modern Plumbing is such a wonderful, heaven-sent blessing!
So since our house has been a shambles and despite the fact that my son has loved seeing the carpet ripped out and several sets of workers come and go, I decided to leave my poor hubbie at home to deal with it all and take the kids up to my mom's for 5 days. Cute little barefeet and our disaster area of a home aren't a good mix.
We're back now and we still have about a week before new carpet is installed, but we've survived the worst, I think.
As always, being at my mom's house involved quilting. I've completed my Improv Quilt Project quilt top. I'll show more pictures soon. Here's a sneak peek.
These two lovely friends of mine are both great bloggers. They have cute blogs, update them regularly and are always showing cute things. I'm honored that they would pass an award on to me.
I'm gonna openly admit that I'm a lazy blogger. I only blog when I feel like it. I'm slow to respond to emails. I blog for purely selfish reasons. And I'm not good about those meme things (what does meme mean?) or awards.
I know I'm supposed to pass these awards on but that sounds like work. And since it is Sunday today, I better not do it. (What with trying to Keep the Sabbath Holy and all.)
But if you read my blog and have ever commented before, I have most likely clicked on your profile and checked out your blog. And then two seconds later, added you to my bloglines list. Now I read your blog and know all about you. Commenting on here is a real commitment, didn't you know?
So if, like I said, you have ever commented on my blog, then I consider you a bloggie friend and you should consider yourself awarded with these prestigious awards. I'll be checking your blogs soon to read your acceptance speeches.
WOW! I guess I had a lot to say today.
