when it rains, it pours

July 17 2013 001

a few wednesdays ago we were woken up with the sound of rain

in our bedroom


i got out of bed, made some coffee and was enjoying the quiet and calm of the house when i heard the drip-drip-drip sound of rain in the house coming from yet another room

i looked around and found a big puddle of water in the middle of the tv room

we wiped the floor down and put down some bowls

i lit some candles and tried to find the humor in it all

i especially tried to find the humor in our landlord’s response to our phone call about the rain in the house which was:

“it’s supposed to stop by friday”

now that is some ridiculous shit right there

so i laughed

because it was better than crying

aside from the leaks in the ceiling and the awful burglary, this has been a good house for us

we have had memorable times here

on our own and with many good friends

this house was a good move for us

for our growth as a family

sort of like a stepping stone to where we want to finally be

that said, it is with good memories that i will leave this house

but we are looking to move

there are changes to come

happy monday friends

hope you all had a wonderful weekend
