So... naturally... my basement flooded! Yay! That was great...
Woke up on Sunday morning, got out of bed... and my feet were wet. First I thought, ok - maybe my Dog had an accident and I'm upset but whatever. Then as I kept walking it was more and more wet and squishy.... Opened the door to the laundry room where there is no carpet and it's just cement floor, and there!! Water!!!
Let me just say this, my Fiancé is amazing. I'm not going to lie, we went to a wedding social and my head was pounding when I woke up so I wasn't much help. He got our roommate, our neighbour and he went out to the store to pick up items including a rug doctor to vacuum up as much as we could.
Sadly... we have some of our wedding items being stored in the basement so there were casualties. If we could have a moment of silence for our customized napkins which were all ruined except for about 1/3 of them so they are basically useless to us as we were going to use them in place of plates for the table settings (see discussion here - Charger Plates - Yes or No?)
We also had all 250 of our blankets that we had bought from Ikea as wedding favours being kept downstairs so at least the bottom row of them are wet - still haven't determined if they are salvageable or not...
Here are some pics:
So, ya... just needed to share/rant and isn't this great with just less than 2 weeks till the wedding?
