It's been a very entertaining couple of days. Thursday we returned to Shippensburg from our long wedding/honeymoon. We had a most excellent time while we were away. Thursday we found our basement and garage completely flooded. It was so flooded, in fact, that the water drenched the carpet in our landing and it had to be removed. Almost everything in our basement and garage was completely soaked. Some of our things were actually salvageable but many were ruined. What was more upsetting than anything else was the fact that even some of the brand new things I was given at my bridal shower were ruined. Luckily, there wasn't too many valuable items down there. All of the electricity in the basement stopped working leaving our washer and dryer powerless. All of the clothes from the honeymoon need to be washed but oh well.. I really don't want to have to go to a laundromat when we paid what we did for that washer and dryer. Spoke with the landlord, electrician would be here first thing in the AM on Monday.

Last night, I was cleaning up the house. I sat on my couch and heard loud spraying/splashing noises. I went to the basement to find water pouring out of my hot water heater...again. This happened back in March-ish and they completely replaced the hot water heater. So in case anyone is keeping score, we now have no electricity in the basement and no hot water in the entire house. Life has been grand...let me tell you.. Called the landlord again to tell him the basement flooded AGAIN... he is going to send someone ASAP...but I am sure ASAP means tomorrow because today is Sunday and no one works on Sunday... Yeah.. I am on the brink of a nervous breakdown...
