Imagine my delight this morning when I went to the Multiples and More blog and saw my little ole blog as one of the nominations for "Blog of the Year"!!!
In brief, I came downstairs Friday morning and noticed that with every step on our beautiful wood flooring, water was squishing out of the seams. Turns out we had a leaky pipe in our bathroom wall...for days, unbeknownst to us.
Need I remind you that Tim and my stepdad spent 5 days laying this wood flooring...and then remember when Tim and I put down the tile in the bathroom and the foyer area?? We were so proud of all our hard work.
Well, it's all gone...completely ruined by the leak. Our insurance company sent contractors over to remove all our flooring and now we have nothing but cold cement floors, covered with huge blowing machines which dry the cement (and create so much noise that my kids yelling actually sounds more like whispers!)
If I want to focus on the silver lining here, we can choose to upgrade our floors...maybe go with dark wood this time? We're not sure just yet.
What I was most bummed about was that we had just put up our gorgeous Christmas tree and decorated it....Bella and I had just put together our lovely Christmas Village and we were so excited about how beautiful and festive our living room looked.
The contractors advised me to put away the Christmas Village, which I did, but I refused to take the Christmas tree down. We weren't able to put out any other decorations and I wanted our kids to at least be able to enjoy the tree...make it feel more like the holiday season.
So anyway....seeing that my blog had been nominated for Blog of the Year totally made my day, needless to say!!
I would love it if you'd take a minute and go over there and vote for me!! Click here to go vote! Thanks!!!!
