Drying out

It seems that the basement is drying out to an extent. Unfortunately, I was not able to save the carpeting because there was just too much water. George ended up coming over to help and we just sort of folded one piece of carpet up and then pushed the water towards the drain. I checked this morning and it seems that most of the water from the other half of the basement has also found it's way to the drain. I am going to have to call my BIL to come over and help with the other half of the basement.

In other good news, I have finally hit the 40 pound loss mark! I am very excited! Except that the size 8 pants that I bought a few weeks ago are getting lose... I rock!

And for the inquiring minds, the dogs and George got along very well. I could tell that Max was smitten with him and Maisy kept bringing him toys to play and then ripping the toys apart. I was very glad to see them get along.

Jill,
Sounds like you are recovering well from the flood. Try a fan blowing across the floor of the basement. It will dry out faster.

Wow, that was sweet of him to come and help you. Don't forget to bleach your basement floor to kill everything that might have come in. I didn't think you'd be able to save the carpeting. =( It had to have been HEAVY.

Congrats on the weight loss!! Now do you want my 6's??? They're from NY & Co.
