What a rough afternoon and evening yesterday...

Had a great day today...got Aviva at school we came home. She relaxed and then did her homework. When she was finished she played with her toys and I called her into my room.

As she is coming to me she goes mommy I think something is leaking...I was like okay I will come check. Well, before I could step out of my room the water was at my bedroom door...

I stepped into more water in the dining room and living room. I was like OY VEY (well maybe not as nice). And the bathroom by Aviva's room was flooded and Aviva's room as well. I am thinking the toilet overflowed (has happened before). Well, I call Spider at work...I am like you need to come home now the house is flooded. He is like take towels and the extra blanket...at this point he is not getting it...there is so much water.

I hang up I am crying and cursing at this point. Called him back and told him I am getting a wet vac at Home Depot. Well, went into his office where the hot water heater is...and his office is flooded really bad...the hot water heater was the culprit. I called Spider again and told him it was worse and he told me to turn off the water valves and it stopped.

I go to Home Depot and they do not rent wet vacs...he calls a friend at our complex and I get one...in the meanwhile he called the Pres of our association and she gave him a number of a company that will come clean it up.

So they get here and start working, it was a lot of water. Spider finally gets home and realizes how bad it really was.

So now it is cleaned up and the fans are blowing...he is pissed because the floors he did are now buckling. And it was $500 for them to come and now we need a new water heater.

I had a miserable headache too!
