help and progress...

So, my dad came up from Tulsa to help us clean up the mess and he's been a GIANT
help!!! He dug a 25 foot long trench in the backyard so we can lay a pipe for drainage away from the house. He mowed our entire yard. He figured out a way to drain the water away from the house. He was ready and willing and smiling the whole day. I was very blessed by him being here. He made a really bad situation so much better.

While he did all that...I was finishing the laundry (until I ran out of detergent) and I had to wash the laundry room floor with major-strength Pine-Sol. I totally was getting high off those fumes...blah! I got a major headache from that. But, it looks better and smells much better than it did!

The thing that has me most bugged is how disrupted our life is and how hard that is on all of us. And now I've figured out that it's going to be a few days before the carpet can be replaced downstairs, so it will take time to get it all done. But, in the meantime, I guess we'll be living like this for a while.

Thanks for all the well-wishes. It really does help!
