Flooding and what not.

Thank you all so much for your comments on my previous 'ranty' post :) Glad to know so many of you feel the same. And thanks for all the compliments on my writing ( Thank God only I've been writing ;) if A writes, he writes like it is an experiment with ONLY sports references :P) Anyway, all things said and done, we've suffered from a major setback. Thanks to the recent downpour in Atlanta and thanks to someone leaving the patio door open, the rain came in, the carpet was soaked throughout, and one unfit person had to move the heavy treadmill, the tv ( after breaking the tv stand, somehow) and the book case and the huge, heavy couch before A returned home to say: Wow, this is why I told you not to invest in books as much. BTW, is my Dorie Greenspan ok? Bugger!!

So, this post is to basically let you know we will not be blogging for the next one week or so ( I know, I know) Fine. I just want to tell you all that am right now sitting at Starbucks without internet or TV at home typing this post out. Its a different thing that the Internet and TV will be back soon (read: today) since A has to catch the Gators' games. Sigh.

Catch you all later ok?

Take care and good luck!

Isn't it amazing how our better halves(?) get things done in a jiffy when it effects them?
Hope everything dries up soon and you don't have any issues with mold and stuff. Good luck.

Cham said...

Take care of the carpet, that might cause some health issues later with mold etc...Even the mother nature blocks the blogging world :)

Soma said...

Oh my gosh! does not sound good at all:-( hope you get things under control & have everything dry up including dorie greenspan:-)

Anita said...

When it rains, it pours! Sorry to hear this! I hope insurance can cover some of the damage...hang in there.

Vani said...

Saw your FB status msg but had not realized how bad it got! Hope at least some of it is fixed by now, N.

Natashya KitchenPuppies said...

Oh no! What a terrible week you have had! This has been a rough year for us too, thank goodness 2010 is coming!
Be well.

Parita said...

Oh dear..so sorry..i know it would be so tiring..take care!

Aparna said...

It sure never just rains but pours, I guess! :)
Take care and your time getting back! Btw, was the Dorie Greenspan saved?

Mandira said...

Sorry to hear about the damages. I hope the insurance covers some of it. Keep us posted.

Ingrid said...

Hey, W! Sorry to hear about the flood issues.

I can't say too much about A loving sports as I have a pair of sports fiends, too! Plus A always has super nice things to say about my guys!

Happy Friday!

Ugh, I'm so sorry to hear this... I hope you're doing alright and taking care of yourself though. Looking forward to your next post, whenever it may come!

One open patio door can wreak so much havoc !!! Hope the carpet dries up soon

Susan said...

Ah, flooding. We live on the top floor, but that didn't stop the toilet from backing up in middle of the night while we were sleeping. Brand new beige wool carpeting soaked through with bright blue water. : \ I feel your pain.

Hope things are improving for you by now.

Lisa said...

You're still not back?!? In any event, I hope all is well.

Now, Yay for the Yanks, but if Girardi keeps mismanaging, another collapse could be in order. I cannot believe the way he's using our BP..it's insane! Pulling Robertson for Aceves when it's a tie game and Robertson is getting the job done? GEEEEEZ!

Hb said...

1 week is over, no? Come back, you promised to see me on my blog.

"if A writes, he writes like it is an experiment with ONLY sports references :P"

I can totally relate to you! Even my OH, also A. is such a sports enthusiast.

Looking forward to your return - it s well over 1 week! :)))

Lisa said...

Here comes #27, guys! Probably won't be tonight, but I'd like it to happen in NY, to christen the new stadium. WHOOHOO! :)

Arch said...

N, you ok girl ?

Ingrid said...

Hey, you guys ever coming back?

A? Are you totally stoked? 27, baby!

Happy Friday!

That's one good looking cake! The chocolate sauce drizzle on it makes it all the more exotic looking :)
