So what happened?

I won’t get into all of the details right now, maybe in a few days or weeks, once things settle a bit – but I do want to at least mention what we’ve been dealing with.

Basically, Wednesday night, I discovered my basement full of sewage.

They are working to reconstruct the roadway that runs perpendicular to our street, but the portion of our road right in front of our driveway is affected because they are improving the infrastructure.

Long story short-ish: The foreman has told us the construction crews had made a mistake while accessing the sewer line.

Needless to say, it has been a very long five days.

Where are we today? As of right now, workers have removed all of the carpet downstairs and down the staircase, the bottom foot of sheet rock is gone and the trim has been taken off.

I’m tired and worn out.

The good news: Ray’s parents were in town this weekend! So, not only were they able to care for and play with Lola, but they offered a much-needed break Friday night as Ray and I got out of the house and saw a movie to celebrate our anniversary.. We weren’t trying to be rude, but I think Ray and Jean definitely understood that we needed to get out for a bit. And, it was so worth it. We had a blast – we even went to Walmart at midnight just to walk around and kill time, something we used to do every weekend in Marshall and in the Cities (although this time, we had to stick to a budget. So we bought bread and Dora fruit snacks – unlike years ago when we would have bought a TV show on DVD and a mountain full of video games). Good times.

More to come … I’m sure!
