So that brings me to my post. I would love to be downstairs making beautiful things and decorating my house for Christmas but I simply can't. It's actually quite funny. I can see everything in my craft room but they have it all pretty much wrapped in plastic and I can't get to any of it. The rest of my house is a disaster as well and I'm missing things because they're under of piles of things that should be in our storage room.
On the bright side, no one was hurt with the flood. None of our actually important documents or things were ruined including our electronics. And, as a bonus, I get to redecorate our basement which was on our list of things to do for the winter. The flood just hurried us up a little bit. So for the next few days, I might be posting about things that we're picking for our basement. We're already planning on putting wainscotting on the lower half of the walls since they had to tear out that half of the drywall anyways. We're also considering putting ceramic tile instead of carpet down since we were informed by our contractor that this is not the first time that our basement has flooded. I do not want mildew. We'll compensate for the coldness with large area rugs.
