11 Sometimes Things Happen...

...Like waking up at 3:30 a.m. to help your child to the bathroom, only to step out of bed into a large puddle of soaking carpet and scream, "What THE!"

The Joneses will be spending the day doing a lot of this:

Extracting approximately 2 inches of standing water from our entire lower level....

Sometimes things like this happen, and all you can do is look at the positive, which is what we are doing today...  However, our town had a lot of flooding last night, please keep them in your thoughts!

I will be back to my regularly scheduled blogging tomorrow!


  1. Oh no!! I hope the damage is limited and that you have super clean carpet when you're done!

  2. Oh no, I'll be thinking of you and your community!

  3. Oh, no! Wait, was your child sick and you stepped in you-know-what or was your house flooded?!?1 Either way, it's awful and I hope everybody is feeling all right/the house is okay! Definitely focus on the positive!!! Life throws your lemons, so just make lemonade!

  4. Good luck! At least you are not using large brooms that I did at a friends house!

  5. Oh no! That one of my worst nightmares! Hope the cleaning goes swiftly!


  6. Aww Jen I'm sorry. Been there! It wasn't fun. At least you have a positive attitude...hope it's all back to normal soon.


  7. Thanks all for your words of support! We are one of the lucky ones around here! Stayin' positive!


  8. oh not :( I hope the carpet is salvagable after all that water - but from what I've seen, even if things don't go well you'll somehow turn it into an opportunity to do something bigger and better for an amazing result.

    Good luck!

  9. Oh my! That is not funny at all! Good luck to you!

  10. So sorry to hear about your flooding! This happened to me on our two week old carpet in our basement. Our hot water heater went out and made such a mess. Get your biggest, most powerful fans on it ASAP. Hang in there!

  11. Hang in there, Jen! I know what a disaster feels like, so you have my empathy, but something positive always comes from it.
