Help! Flooded basement!

Well, that rain that seemed so cool last night BROKE down our basement door and filled the entire basement with muddy water. It looks like the place was completely tossed. We have to clean everything up and assess the damage (and there looks to be damaged goods).

If anyone has time today to stop by our house and help with the cleanup, we would greatly appreciate it. It's a big messy job, and we could use the help.

Hoping you all weathered the storm better than we did!

Things that make me happy:

  • Rabbits in the back yard, including a baby bunny!
  • Watching the third season of News Radio -- that show cracks me up. Speaking of funny, the seagulls in Finding Nemo -- Mine, mine, mine -- had me ROtFLMAO.
  • New music set for my restaurant gig -- yay for new sets!
  • Spending oodles of time with my sweetie.
  • Being able to eat fresh vegetables from my garden -- yummy fresh peas and lettuce, and the most delicious strawberries I have ever eaten. And soon there will be tomatoes and zucchini, and blackberries and raspberries -- but I think the birds and rabbits will eat all the blueberries.
  • Pretty painted walls -- the master bathroom is now an intense teal with lavender trim, and the basement bathroom will soon be orange. Other paint colors soon to come: Peach for the basement stairwell and green for the solarium. Whee!
  • Carrot cake muffins -- new recipe, came out well, brought them to Habiba's Ghawazee workshop where the dancers ate them with glee. But there are still some left for me and Q -- yay!

There are many more, but that will do for today. I am listening to the rain, which is very cool, and I should go practice my new set some more. But shhhhh...Q is napping.
