Are.you.serious?

I knew something smelled strange. For the past few days, after work when I would walk into the house, I could smell something abnormal, something awful. Like that of mold or mildew. Gross. I kept complaining of this to my mom but we could not figure out where it could be coming from.

Until yesterday, that is...

It seems as though our hot water heater has been leaking and finally decided to give out on us yesterday. Oh joy. Half of our great room is soaking wet and we have no hot water, ultimately resulting in cold showers, not being able to run the dishwasher or the washing machine. On top of that, our carpet is soaking wet and our house smells horrible from it. It's amazing how one faulty hot water heater can negatively effect SO many things. Ugh.

It looks as though we will be getting it fixed as it is covered under my Parent's' Home Owner's policy. Of course, they have to pay an enormous out of pocket deductible first. Like anyone has that kind of money right now? What an unfortunate situation.

Of all things.

Other than that, all is well! =)

I hate when you just know something is amiss, but can't quite figure it out! I'm sorry lady.

Ahh, that's a bummer! That happened to my family and I a few years ago in a rental house we were living in while we were building - it was a hectic time. And then I went through a similar situation again when my apartment flooded just after I moved in (in Ft Lauderdale) because a cable guy stepped on an emergency water pipe. Everything smelt so bad for months!

I'm so sorry to hear about that though, it's no fun. You can always come visit me for a weekend, stay dry and take a hot shower! :) I'll be praying for your fam. Love you girl!
